Book Girl: A Journey Through the Treasures and Transforming Power of a Reading Life Reviews

    I loved Clarkson's emphasis on women and the pure treasure reading is for our emotional, physical, and mental well-being. I think what I most took away from this book was more for me as a mother. That the little seeds we are sowing everyday of beauty and good literature are crucial. Ev...

    I immensely enjoyed certain parts of this book and didn?t love a few other parts. Overall it was an enjoyable read and will be a reference books for years to come! I added over 100 titles to a new Goodreads list I started (you can go see it as ?book girl recommendations? and ther...

    I don?t review a lot of non-fiction books on my blog, but when I saw there was a book about books, the reading life and bookworms, I knew I needed to read and share it! This book is not only a wonderful read, but an amazing resource, filled with book lists for different seasons of a ...

    Sarah Clarkson speaks to me. In both the books I?ve read from her (Caught Up in a Story and this), it?s like someone has looked into my head and described my experiences to me with a greater emotional understanding than I had heretofore had for myself. In both instances, her books ...

    I LOVED this book! Book Girl is an amazing book-on-books, probably the best I've ever read. Sarah Clarkson, as a young woman, wife,( and new mother poised to transform her own daughter into a "book girl"), and Oxford theology graduate, writes extremely well on a subject that is truly...

    I LOVED this book. Sarah Clarkson is such a treasure. My full review will be posted at Englewood Review of Books within the next few weeks. ...

    Like many book bloggers, reading is one of my biggest hobbies. Talking about my latest read or your favorite book is one of my favorite pastimes. Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson is all about her love of books and reading. In Book Girl, Sarah Clarkson starts about by sharing how she go...

    I?ll be returning to this as a resource time and time again through the years, I?m certain. A delightful combination of personal essays and reading recommendations. ...

    3 - 3.5 Stars I'm a sucker for books about books so I enjoyed this, although it didn't bump my top five such books. I'd probably include it in my top ten or fifteen, but I'll have to think about it awhile and then hopefully come back and write a real review later. However I do know t...

    Before I was ever born, my mother read to me. While in her womb, she would read from classics by Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne, and, of course, one of her favorite books Anne of Green Gables. Is it any wonder then that I was a born reader? For as long as I can remember, I have adored book...

    This was not all what I was expecting, but I liked it. I did a lot skimming in this book because to me, it was more of a reference book (the endless book lists) for mostly classic-type books. But I really enjoyed some of the chapters?the one on imagination in books I felt like I had ...

    Y'all. I've only gotten to read the first four chapters of this book as a part of its launch team, but I am in love. Sarah's writing style is gorgeous, but more than that this book feels like coming home. Sarah has beautifully expressed so many of the thoughts and feelings that I have ...

    With chapter titles like "Books Can Stir You to Action" and "Books Can Foster Community" Sarah Clarkson's Book Girl is a joyful manifesto of all the good that books bring to our lives. Almost every chapter has a booklist too, so lots more titles to consider adding to your reading list!...

    This book gave voice to so many things I?ve sensed intuitively about stories my whole life. I want to press a copy of it into the hands of ever book lover I know and then demand they meet me for coffee after each chapter so we can talk about it. But for now, I?ll settle for recomme...

    Got about halfway through then skimmed the rest. I usually enjoy books about books, but not this one. ...

    I have been able to preview the first four chapters of this book before the release and absolutely devoured them. Honestly, I knew I would love the subject matter as a book girl myself and mother of book girls, but I didn't know if I would like the prose. In the past Sarah Clarkson's s...

    A book for reading and re-reading, a book of lists to delight the heart of every book lover, a book of prose about the meaning of reading in our lives. I loved every minute of this book and intend to read it again very soon as well as seek out the books she suggested that I have not ye...

    Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson's synopsis sounded right up my alley. I define myself as an avid bookworm. I mean, who else besides bookworms finish 200 books every year. It is a lot of books, but I love reading. So the description sounded just like me. I really couldn't wait to get my ha...

    I was blessed to be able to read the first four chapters of this book in advance, and I cannot wait to read the rest! Not only does Sarah provide you with amazing booklists (my TBR pile is already growing) but she has written a delightful manifesto for the reading life that makes you f...

    I liked & appreciated all her suggestions, but wasn't a huge fan of the other chapters. Some had great points... I did end up skimming a bit. ...

    Clarkson begins by discussing discernment in reading, how to find time to read, and where to get started. Later chapters include book lists sorted by topic. I found many of my favorites in her lists and many to add to my to-be-read list. Her book lists make me feel like we are talking ...

    "To be a book girl is to take up membership in the ranks of women who read and, by their reading, live to the brave and courageous full." I wanted to love this book. I wanted this book to be about the celebration of books and the love of books that we share. But what it felt like, f...

    Oh my word. As if I needed more encouragement to read, this book did it! If you need some direction for your reading or encouragement to branch out, this book will help you find that. (I have only read the first third or so, but I am sure the rest will be the same.) Sarah Clarkson is a...

    too christian and author tells you she went to Oxford approximately 1 zillion times ...

    I liked that Clarkson referenced her faith in this book in a very natural way. She didn't just state "my faith is important to me and influences my reading, and vice-versa," but truly integrated her faith into the book's text. (This book is by a Christian, published by a Christian comp...

    I was right, I loved it. Book Girl was exactly what I thought it would be and exactly what I wanted it to be. Thanks once again to Netgalley, I was able to read a review copy on my Kindle, but Book Girl is going on my list of printed books that I would like to own. It will be a...

    Now here?s a book for readers who are serious about reading. Book Girl is both a companion and continuing resource for, well, book girls. In other words, for book lovers and lovers of book lists (of which I am both) ? as well as those who aspire to be either. The depth and bread...

    I must admit, were it not for the fact that I've been reading Sarah Clarkson's words for over ten years (and have always been inspired and nourished by her) I probably wouldn't have bought this book. Books about books and books about reading have always seemed a bit like preaching to t...

    This book added many other books to my to-read list. It was fun to see old favorites on Sarah's lists and be introduced to many others. The format is a little different than other book list books I've read before. Instead of all the recommendations at the end, they are interspersed bet...

    3 - 3.5 Stars I'm a sucker for books about books so I enjoyed this, although it didn't bump my top five such books. I'd probably include it in my top ten or fifteen, but I'll have to think about it awhile and then hopefully come back and write a real review later. However I do know t...

    Before I was ever born, my mother read to me. While in her womb, she would read from classics by Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne, and, of course, one of her favorite books Anne of Green Gables. Is it any wonder then that I was a born reader? For as long as I can remember, I have adored book...

    This was not all what I was expecting, but I liked it. I did a lot skimming in this book because to me, it was more of a reference book (the endless book lists) for mostly classic-type books. But I really enjoyed some of the chapters?the one on imagination in books I felt like I had ...

    Y'all. I've only gotten to read the first four chapters of this book as a part of its launch team, but I am in love. Sarah's writing style is gorgeous, but more than that this book feels like coming home. Sarah has beautifully expressed so many of the thoughts and feelings that I have ...

    With chapter titles like "Books Can Stir You to Action" and "Books Can Foster Community" Sarah Clarkson's Book Girl is a joyful manifesto of all the good that books bring to our lives. Almost every chapter has a booklist too, so lots more titles to consider adding to your reading list!...

    This book gave voice to so many things I?ve sensed intuitively about stories my whole life. I want to press a copy of it into the hands of ever book lover I know and then demand they meet me for coffee after each chapter so we can talk about it. But for now, I?ll settle for recomme...

    A book for reading and re-reading, a book of lists to delight the heart of every book lover, a book of prose about the meaning of reading in our lives. I loved every minute of this book and intend to read it again very soon as well as seek out the books she suggested that I have not ye...

    Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson's synopsis sounded right up my alley. I define myself as an avid bookworm. I mean, who else besides bookworms finish 200 books every year. It is a lot of books, but I love reading. So the description sounded just like me. I really couldn't wait to get my ha...

    I was blessed to be able to read the first four chapters of this book in advance, and I cannot wait to read the rest! Not only does Sarah provide you with amazing booklists (my TBR pile is already growing) but she has written a delightful manifesto for the reading life that makes you f...

    I liked & appreciated all her suggestions, but wasn't a huge fan of the other chapters. Some had great points... I did end up skimming a bit. ...

    Clarkson begins by discussing discernment in reading, how to find time to read, and where to get started. Later chapters include book lists sorted by topic. I found many of my favorites in her lists and many to add to my to-be-read list. Her book lists make me feel like we are talking ...

    "To be a book girl is to take up membership in the ranks of women who read and, by their reading, live to the brave and courageous full." I wanted to love this book. I wanted this book to be about the celebration of books and the love of books that we share. But what it felt like, f...

    I liked that Clarkson referenced her faith in this book in a very natural way. She didn't just state "my faith is important to me and influences my reading, and vice-versa," but truly integrated her faith into the book's text. (This book is by a Christian, published by a Christian comp...

    I was right, I loved it. Book Girl was exactly what I thought it would be and exactly what I wanted it to be. Thanks once again to Netgalley, I was able to read a review copy on my Kindle, but Book Girl is going on my list of printed books that I would like to own. It will be a...

    Now here?s a book for readers who are serious about reading. Book Girl is both a companion and continuing resource for, well, book girls. In other words, for book lovers and lovers of book lists (of which I am both) ? as well as those who aspire to be either. The depth and bread...

    I must admit, were it not for the fact that I've been reading Sarah Clarkson's words for over ten years (and have always been inspired and nourished by her) I probably wouldn't have bought this book. Books about books and books about reading have always seemed a bit like preaching to t...

    I?ll be returning to this as a resource time and time again through the years, I?m certain. A delightful combination of personal essays and reading recommendations. ...

    3 - 3.5 Stars I'm a sucker for books about books so I enjoyed this, although it didn't bump my top five such books. I'd probably include it in my top ten or fifteen, but I'll have to think about it awhile and then hopefully come back and write a real review later. However I do know t...

    Before I was ever born, my mother read to me. While in her womb, she would read from classics by Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne, and, of course, one of her favorite books Anne of Green Gables. Is it any wonder then that I was a born reader? For as long as I can remember, I have adored book...

    Y'all. I've only gotten to read the first four chapters of this book as a part of its launch team, but I am in love. Sarah's writing style is gorgeous, but more than that this book feels like coming home. Sarah has beautifully expressed so many of the thoughts and feelings that I have ...

    A book for reading and re-reading, a book of lists to delight the heart of every book lover, a book of prose about the meaning of reading in our lives. I loved every minute of this book and intend to read it again very soon as well as seek out the books she suggested that I have not ye...

    I loved Clarkson's emphasis on women and the pure treasure reading is for our emotional, physical, and mental well-being. I think what I most took away from this book was more for me as a mother. That the little seeds we are sowing everyday of beauty and good literature are crucial. Ev...

    I immensely enjoyed certain parts of this book and didn?t love a few other parts. Overall it was an enjoyable read and will be a reference books for years to come! I added over 100 titles to a new Goodreads list I started (you can go see it as ?book girl recommendations? and ther...

    I don?t review a lot of non-fiction books on my blog, but when I saw there was a book about books, the reading life and bookworms, I knew I needed to read and share it! This book is not only a wonderful read, but an amazing resource, filled with book lists for different seasons of a ...

    I LOVED this book! Book Girl is an amazing book-on-books, probably the best I've ever read. Sarah Clarkson, as a young woman, wife,( and new mother poised to transform her own daughter into a "book girl"), and Oxford theology graduate, writes extremely well on a subject that is truly...

    Book Girl by Sarah Clarkson's synopsis sounded right up my alley. I define myself as an avid bookworm. I mean, who else besides bookworms finish 200 books every year. It is a lot of books, but I love reading. So the description sounded just like me. I really couldn't wait to get my ha...

    I liked & appreciated all her suggestions, but wasn't a huge fan of the other chapters. Some had great points... I did end up skimming a bit. ...

    Clarkson begins by discussing discernment in reading, how to find time to read, and where to get started. Later chapters include book lists sorted by topic. I found many of my favorites in her lists and many to add to my to-be-read list. Her book lists make me feel like we are talking ...

    "To be a book girl is to take up membership in the ranks of women who read and, by their reading, live to the brave and courageous full." I wanted to love this book. I wanted this book to be about the celebration of books and the love of books that we share. But what it felt like, f...

    Oh my word. As if I needed more encouragement to read, this book did it! If you need some direction for your reading or encouragement to branch out, this book will help you find that. (I have only read the first third or so, but I am sure the rest will be the same.) Sarah Clarkson is a...

    too christian and author tells you she went to Oxford approximately 1 zillion times ...

    I liked that Clarkson referenced her faith in this book in a very natural way. She didn't just state "my faith is important to me and influences my reading, and vice-versa," but truly integrated her faith into the book's text. (This book is by a Christian, published by a Christian comp...

    I was right, I loved it. Book Girl was exactly what I thought it would be and exactly what I wanted it to be. Thanks once again to Netgalley, I was able to read a review copy on my Kindle, but Book Girl is going on my list of printed books that I would like to own. It will be a...

    Now here?s a book for readers who are serious about reading. Book Girl is both a companion and continuing resource for, well, book girls. In other words, for book lovers and lovers of book lists (of which I am both) ? as well as those who aspire to be either. The depth and bread...

    I was blessed to be able to read the first four chapters of this book in advance, and I cannot wait to read the rest! Not only does Sarah provide you with amazing booklists (my TBR pile is already growing) but she has written a delightful manifesto for the reading life that makes you f...

    I liked & appreciated all her suggestions, but wasn't a huge fan of the other chapters. Some had great points... I did end up skimming a bit. ...

    Clarkson begins by discussing discernment in reading, how to find time to read, and where to get started. Later chapters include book lists sorted by topic. I found many of my favorites in her lists and many to add to my to-be-read list. Her book lists make me feel like we are talking ...

    "To be a book girl is to take up membership in the ranks of women who read and, by their reading, live to the brave and courageous full." I wanted to love this book. I wanted this book to be about the celebration of books and the love of books that we share. But what it felt like, f...

    I loved Clarkson's emphasis on women and the pure treasure reading is for our emotional, physical, and mental well-being. I think what I most took away from this book was more for me as a mother. That the little seeds we are sowing everyday of beauty and good literature are crucial. Ev...

    I immensely enjoyed certain parts of this book and didn?t love a few other parts. Overall it was an enjoyable read and will be a reference books for years to come! I added over 100 titles to a new Goodreads list I started (you can go see it as ?book girl recommendations? and ther...

    I don?t review a lot of non-fiction books on my blog, but when I saw there was a book about books, the reading life and bookworms, I knew I needed to read and share it! This book is not only a wonderful read, but an amazing resource, filled with book lists for different seasons of a ...

    Sarah Clarkson speaks to me. In both the books I?ve read from her (Caught Up in a Story and this), it?s like someone has looked into my head and described my experiences to me with a greater emotional understanding than I had heretofore had for myself. In both instances, her books ...

    I LOVED this book! Book Girl is an amazing book-on-books, probably the best I've ever read. Sarah Clarkson, as a young woman, wife,( and new mother poised to transform her own daughter into a "book girl"), and Oxford theology graduate, writes extremely well on a subject that is truly...

    I LOVED this book. Sarah Clarkson is such a treasure. My full review will be posted at Englewood Review of Books within the next few weeks. ...

    I?ll be returning to this as a resource time and time again through the years, I?m certain. A delightful combination of personal essays and reading recommendations. ...

    3 - 3.5 Stars I'm a sucker for books about books so I enjoyed this, although it didn't bump my top five such books. I'd probably include it in my top ten or fifteen, but I'll have to think about it awhile and then hopefully come back and write a real review later. However I do know t...

    Before I was ever born, my mother read to me. While in her womb, she would read from classics by Beatrix Potter, A.A. Milne, and, of course, one of her favorite books Anne of Green Gables. Is it any wonder then that I was a born reader? For as long as I can remember, I have adored book...

    This was not all what I was expecting, but I liked it. I did a lot skimming in this book because to me, it was more of a reference book (the endless book lists) for mostly classic-type books. But I really enjoyed some of the chapters?the one on imagination in books I felt like I had ...

    This book gave voice to so many things I?ve sensed intuitively about stories my whole life. I want to press a copy of it into the hands of ever book lover I know and then demand they meet me for coffee after each chapter so we can talk about it. But for now, I?ll settle for recomme...

    too christian and author tells you she went to Oxford approximately 1 zillion times ...

    I liked that Clarkson referenced her faith in this book in a very natural way. She didn't just state "my faith is important to me and influences my reading, and vice-versa," but truly integrated her faith into the book's text. (This book is by a Christian, published by a Christian comp...
