Book Shelf: Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin

**Throwback to 2016** – From the time Thomas and Lillian were born (2005 and 2001) I read to them nightly before going to bed; leading to some time in 2017 when we all decided to discontinue doing so. Their tastes in what interested each of them had solidified by this point. We all continue to be heavy readers, reading daily. We read some really great books! I miss those times.

Snowflake Bentley by Jacqueline Briggs Martin

We enjoyed this book to the moon and back! Awesome!

“The average dairy farmer gets up at dawn because he has to go to work in the cow yard. I get up at dawn, too. But it is because I want to find some leaf, hung with dew; or a spider web which the dew has made into the most delicate ropes of pearls ….

I take my camera with me, get down on my knees in the wet grass, and photograph these exquisite bits of nature. Because I do this I can show these lovely things to people who never would have seen them without my help.

They will get their daily quart of milk, all right. Other farmers will attend to that. But I think I am giving them something which is just as important.” -W.A. Bentley

Book Shelf: Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust

I stepped outside of my comfort zone, and my favored genres to read this one. My first nudge was the cover, and then a friend’s review pushed me to put it on hold with the library.

I am so glad I did. This is wonderfully well written, kept me engaged, and coming back for more. I became invested in learning about the characters and following each of their stories. I truly enjoyed the underlying message of being true to oneself. Absolutely loved it!

Book Shelf: The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick 

The Library of Lost and Found by Phaedra Patrick 

Phaedra Patrick’s latest book. I read her first two and love each book more than the one before! I read the entire book in just a few sittings. I could not stand to stop. Just had to keep reading! I love a GREAT mystery; yet also want it to be a mystery that doesn’t involve murders or deaths. Phaedra does not disappoint with delivering a whopping mystery, with lovable characters to get to know (and some you’d rather not know). I’m already excited for her next book!!

I interviewed Phaedra Patrick on this website in June 2019. You’ll want to check that out too! –Camilla
