    I’ve read Romanov, Coral, The Hobbit, Animal Farm, the first Anne of Green Gables book, Little Women, and An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving. Many more of these are on my TBR.
    Are you an Enneagram type 4? I am too! I don’t find the results as accurate as the MBTI test though.

    1. Ooo those are awesome books!! Some of my favorites! I read Coral for the first time this year and ahhh! It was beautiful!
      Yep, I’m am enneagram 4. Wow, so cool you are, too! I haven’t actually taken the MBTI test yet but it sounds real interesting!

    1. Thanks! Ooo good question. A lot of the memoirs gave me a new perspective on life and a window into what God can do and how he is in every aspect of our lives.
      Total Truth ans Mere Christianity also really changed the way I think about the world.


  2. How did you keep track of all these books?!!! *APPLAUSE* I could never d it, I read too much.
    I loved the Grandma’s Attic stories! Those are super sweet!
    You did not like Around the World in 80 Days?
    Haha, I knew when I saw Agatha Christie it would be your fave. Those are mine. I did not know Father Brown were books though.

    1. I write them down after I’m finished, hehe. THANKS!! AHH YES THE GRANDMA’S ATTIC STORIES ARE THE BEST!! They’re my comfort books. ❤
      No, I liked the movie series a lot, and I'd watched it first, so the book was disapointing. It was a fine story in and of itself, but just lacked a lot of the interesting things that the series had. XD
      Yeaaah, I really like Agatha Christie's writing style. Have you read any of her other books?
      Yeah! The Father Brown mysteries are really interesting.


      1. I could do that….. but It would be too long of a list.😅
        They are fun and easy to read when I don’t feel like concentrating on a plot.
        I have never seen any movies, I read the book for school a while back.
        I might have to see if my library has any Father Brown books.
        Um………. Have I read any other Agatha Christie?…………………….🤣🤣🤣 Yep! She is one of if not my fave author! I have read almost all her books.
