Dear Emily, please forgive me for not answering! February, March, and April have been crazy months for us!
Gee, hard question! I think I would say these are probably my very favorites: The Book Theif, Hugo, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, Life is Beautiful, The Case for Christ, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Hallmark), Wonder, Anne…[Read more]
Thank you so very much for this! I was recently given a beautiful notebook from Mexico and wanted to use it for journaling, though I had no idea how to start (and every day that I was resolutely determined to start, I was kept back by the exact same thing: busy life). Your article encouraged me so much! Thank you!
Thank you, Emily! My, I haven’t written poetry in quite a while…not complete ones… but I should so like to take it up again!
“Sometimes I’m ashamed at how many books I haven’t read.”
If it makes you feel any better, I’ve felt the same way, hahaha! 😉 By the Way, I love Book Theif and Beauty and the Beast so much too! Have you watch…[Read more]
Please, please, please forgive me for the tardy reply! There has been a lot going on this month (good things, though 🙂 )
I was at an old college built in the 1800s. It’s quite lovely! My aunt did a photo shoot for my whole family there. Thank you!
I can see now why everyone loves Mercedes! She is definitely one of my very…[Read more]
Just wanted to say that I read both of your poems on the Blog and loved them! They are so beautiful and sweet and gentle! God bless you and keep on writing!
P.S. I absolutely fell in love with The Count of Monte Cristo!!!
I’m so I’m so glad you’re recovering so quickly! 🙂 (By the way, I found out about your accident when I found a post about it in a Prayer Request thread.)
How far have I read?…I think I’ve read up to chapter twenty five, so far…its most exciting! Though I will admit that it can get dark.
I absolutely LOVE how human everyone feels!…[Read more]
I haven’t read Mara completely yet…I want to read it this year (maybe within the next six months?) though!
I did not know about Moccasin Trail! Thank you! Another read for 2019! 😀
Please forgive me for not answering earlier! These last weeks have been crazy for me!
Thank you! I do love both books! I love the depth of the Characters and how dynamic they are in the Bronze Bow. And Eloise Jarvis McGraw has such a vivid style and love of gritty characters – her books feel SO real, even if certain details…[Read more]
Dear Emily of New Moon,
How are you feeling? I heard you had an accident! I will be praying for you! I so hope you’re feeling better!
I’m now reading the Count of Monte Cristo!!! I’ve barely started, though it’s most engrossing! Any tips or favorite passages or themes?
Anne of Green Gables
Thank you for the post! I saw it on Thanksgiving but could write back at the moment. It can be so easy to forget why this holiday is actually here and the history behind it amid the busyness! (The turkey! the stuffing! The gravy! Oh my! LOL 🙂 )
Forgive me, I meant to write earlier on your post about your college placement test.…[Read more]

Thank you for tagging me, Libby! I meant to reply earlier but didn’t get the time!
I haven’t written a full poem, actually, in a while, but I would love to go back to doing it! I write a a stanza here and a couplet there, but I haven’t finished one in a while. I love reading poetry, though, when I get to. There’s something about poetry…[Read more]
Forgive me, Katherine! I meant to reply earlier but didn’t get the time!
Thank you so very much for the suggestions! I would like my blog to mostly focus on analyzing literature and writing, so those ideas are perfect!
And yes, words like that are just what I was looking for.
As it is, my blog is still a WIP. Incidently, I started t…[Read more]
I’m so sorry for not answering earlier! These last days have been somewhat busy.
I haven’t read Emily of New Moon yet but I’m slightly familiar with it. My closest Kindred Spirit is Anne of Green Gables. It’s a pleasure to meet you Miss Emily of New Moon! ;D I would also say Meg/Jo, because I have bits of both. I’m so glad you’ve rea…[Read more]
Hello Everyone! I’ve been intending to answer the thread for the last two days, but couldn’t get to it!
Thank you so much for starting this! What a wonderful idea! I can’t watch movies without critiquing their historical innacuracies either.
I love many of the authors you mentioned as well! 1400s Italy is such an inter…[Read more]
Hello everyone! I’m so sorry for the delay. I meant to reply earlier but couldn’t get to it!
To make amends I wrote extra! (actually, no, that’s my typical response) I tend to think that everyone loves talking as much as I do!
Just for curiosity’s sake: Does anyone have a “Literary Kindred…[Read more]
I am working on a blog and would love to have suggestions for articles. My first article is about what happens when people lose imagination.
I would also love suggestions as to freebies. I was thinking of giving a 20ish page writing/drawing prompt downloadable. Each page would give a vivid word (such as passion, effervescence,…[Read more]
