Monthly Book Review - October

Monthly Book Reviews

Wow, October went by very quickly. Too quickly, almost!

One thing I always look forward to is Hannah's bloghop called Monthly Book Reviews. I did it a lot on my old blog, but this is my first time doing it on here.

I decided to review one of my favorite books, Elsie Dinsmore. My mom read it to me when I was younger, but I only read it for myself this month. Oh, I loved it! I'm actually loving the whole series, I'm on book 4, and they keep getting better and better.
Here's my review for the first book in the series:

I think that Elsie Dinsmore is one of the sweetest books ever written. It's about a little girl named Elsie, who is growing up in mid-19th century America. She is Christian girl who strives to be patient and loving despite all she goes through.

The Elsie series was written many years ago, but is still very relevant for us today. When I was reading these books I was both challenged and encouraged. I really recommend not only this first book, but the whole series.

Please head on over to Hannah's blog to read her review and maybe join in the fun yourself :)


  1. Oh, lovely review, Hannah! Although I've never read this myself, I've heard a lot of good things about the series:) Thanks for linking up!

    It's been a while since I've visited your blog! In fact, it's been a while since I've visited a LOT of people's blogs. Real life has taken over my time. =D

    I wanted to comment on this book review especially. Great job with your review by the way! I tell you, that is the best series of books I have ever come across! So far, I've read up to book 18. My advice to you is, as you read more of these books, there are a couple that seem boring, but read 'em anyways! It's worth in the end to know everything that happens. I love these books with all my heart and will treasure them always. =D

    Hope you're having a delightful and relaxing Sunday, my friend!
