January 2023 Reading Recap & February 2023 TBR

My January 2023 Reads: 

I read lots of poetry in January and I have no regrets. 

  1. The Rose and the Thistle by Laura Frantz - ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  2. Walking With My Angel by Adam Scott Campbell - ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  3. Woman of God by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro - ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - This novel surprised me. It's a general market fiction novel that held some things I don't enjoy (occasional profanity, irreverent attitude toward God), but it also contained a religious depth that I appreciated. More conservative readers might be offended by a woman in a church leadership role or the occasional mention of gay/lesbian inclusivity in the church. Overall, I enjoyed reading the novel and appreciated Brigid's authentic journey to/with God.

  4. The Last Chance Cowboy by Jody Hedlund - ⭐⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  5. Poems by C. S. Lewis -  ⭐⭐⭐½ - This collection reminded me of the poetry I read in college. While I appreciated its literary excellence, I only liked a handful of the poems. 🙁

  6. Everything is Just Beginning by Erin Bartels - ⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.

  7. Peace in the Midst of the Storm by Kaleb Thompson - ⭐⭐⭐ - Read my review.
