My Thoughts on Today
I got a decent chunk of reading in but not quite what I was hoping to accomplish. I accidentally slept in super late, had chores to do, and spent a bunch of time with my sister. So while it wasn't the best reading day it was still a pretty great day!

The Silent Governess has been on my TBR for quite a while now. Congratulations on finishing it! I hope you find lots of time to read today.

I really liked The Silent Governess. All her books are pretty good, although The Maid of Fairbourne Hall is my fav of hers. Chores? What are those? Lol! I've got a long list of them today to get to. Just means I'll be listening to my book while I do them. :)

Janet-It was on my TBR for forever too and I kept putting it off because the synopsis didn't quite grab me. But I got it as a gift last Christmas and one of my yearly goals is to finish all of the books owned in the previous year so I just decided to dive in! I ended up loving it! Hope you get to read it soon!

Tressa-I agree her books are excellent! I have read all but The Lady of Milkweed Manor and I agree that The Maid of Fairbourne Hall is the best! That was actually my first book of hers that I read! Chores often make me wish I liked audio books so I could get more read but I just don't like being read to!
