Whistling Past the Graveyard

Good Morning! 

 I'm heading out of town to visit my sweet dad in just a few minutes but wanted to update you on my Summer Reading List.

Just finished reading
Whistling Past the Graveyard 
by Susan Crandall last night.

Oh my goodness!

No kidding this is one of the best books I've ever read.
The story is hard and so heartwarming all at the same time.
The language is incredible!
Susan Crandall knows how to tell a story really make you understand
how the characters feel and what they experience.

The use of similes and metaphors mixed into the southern vernacular 
hooked me from the first 
paragraph.


There are rumors that there could be a movie made from this book.
I can totally imagine it but then again...aren't books so much better than movies?

Read this one y'all!

  2. Thanks for the review. I will definitely add this one to my reading list. Also, 'Still Alice' was a very good story, sad, but good. Enjoy your time away... :)

  5. I agree! I gave it 5 stars in Goodreads and this is my review, "This will definitely be one of my favorite books for this year. I fell in love with the sweet little girl and by the time I had finished the book, I wanted to adopt her. Delightful! Highly recommend!" I wish I knew of more books like this one! Hugs!

  7. A few of my blogging buds are linking up this week for our summer book list posts. I am going to check this title out before I write my post and possibly add it to my ever-growing list. I am a slow reader so probably won't make a whole lot of headway toward reading everything I want to read. But I can set the bar high! http://onceuponatimehappilyeverafter.com
    P.S. what is a No Reply Blogger?
