A Few Favorites from a Frigid Friday

Hello Reader! Today’s post was originally going to be part of First Line Friday, but at the last minute I decided that instead I want to share some of the good, encouraging, or fun things that I came across this week. I’ve seen a handful of other bloggers do something similar at the end of the week, and I always appreciate the positive wrap-up. So, here are a few of my favorite posts & other (mostly) bookishness from this week to keep you warm if you’re staying inside due to a cold snap like I am. It was only 8F this morning! But, the sun is out, the library is open, and there are some interesting things to be read in the blogosphere.

A Book to Look Into:

Shadows of Swanford Abbey

Shadows of Swanford Abbey by Julie Klassen has been everywhere this week, and so many people who I follow seem to be loving it! Victoria Lynn and A.M. Heath shared positive reviews, and many other Goodreads users appear to agree. Here’s the synopsis from Goodreads:

“In pursuit of an author who could help get her brother published, Rebecca Lane stays at Swanford Abbey, a grand hotel rumored to be haunted. It is there she encounters Sir Frederick–the man who broke her heart. When a mysterious death occurs, Rebecca is one of the suspects, and Frederick is torn between his feelings for her and his search for the truth.

The spring semester started Wednesday for me, so I also feel like I should mention how happy I am with the planner I got for this year. I only wish I would have thought to order from Blue Sky online instead of looking only in stores! Regardless, I feel ready for the semester now that I have gone through the syllabi and written out all the assignments and required reading I will have.

I think that’s about it for this post. Let me know in the comments something positive you came across this week, and whether you enjoy this type of post.

Until the next chapter,
