    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 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 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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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 that ...

    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!...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    I have read an excerpt, the first four chapters and a few of her included reading lists. What a friend I have found already in Sarah Clarkson. Her reminder to my weary soul of the vital importance of reading is a gift I didn't know I so desperately needed. The need to learn, the capaci...

    I have no idea how to express my love for this book. When friends and family saw me reading it, they kept asking, "What's that about?" and I didn't know how to answer them. I tried to explain it was a book about books and a celebration of reading. I told them it had recommended rea...

    A beautiful and unique exploration of the blessings that come from reading for living a life of faith, hope, and love. The interweaving of chapters that explore aspects of a reading life, such as imparting hope, stirring to action, and cultivating wonder, along with recommendations of ...

    I received an advance copy of an excerpt of this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The honesty and transparency from which Sarah approaches all of her writings is refreshing and rejuvenating. Her story about Tolkien and how writings inspire her to live her life courageously because of ha...

    Turns out (no spoiler here!) I am a book girl too. Sarah Clarkson is so earnest and sweet in her love for books. I love that she really appreciates her book-centric upbringing. She provides many lists for different circumstances, and it dawned on me that because I have read and enjoyed...

    This was quite a read! Not quite what I expected but I enjoyed most of it. She is definitely more of a "scholar" reader than I will ever be(my tastes are much lighter most of the time) but she definitely hit several books already on my to-read list and I will be adding a few more of he...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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 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 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 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. ...

    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...

    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 that ...

    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!...

    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...

    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 have read an excerpt, the first four chapters and a few of her included reading lists. What a friend I have found already in Sarah Clarkson. Her reminder to my weary soul of the vital importance of reading is a gift I didn't know I so desperately needed. The need to learn, the capaci...

    I have no idea how to express my love for this book. When friends and family saw me reading it, they kept asking, "What's that about?" and I didn't know how to answer them. I tried to explain it was a book about books and a celebration of reading. I told them it had recommended rea...

    A beautiful and unique exploration of the blessings that come from reading for living a life of faith, hope, and love. The interweaving of chapters that explore aspects of a reading life, such as imparting hope, stirring to action, and cultivating wonder, along with recommendations of ...

    I received an advance copy of an excerpt of this book and thoroughly enjoyed it. The honesty and transparency from which Sarah approaches all of her writings is refreshing and rejuvenating. Her story about Tolkien and how writings inspire her to live her life courageously because of ha...

    Turns out (no spoiler here!) I am a book girl too. Sarah Clarkson is so earnest and sweet in her love for books. I love that she really appreciates her book-centric upbringing. She provides many lists for different circumstances, and it dawned on me that because I have read and enjoyed...

    This was quite a read! Not quite what I expected but I enjoyed most of it. She is definitely more of a "scholar" reader than I will ever be(my tastes are much lighter most of the time) but she definitely hit several books already on my to-read list and I will be adding a few more of he...

    A book for any woman who wants to rediscover her bookishness, intellect, and imagination. In the chapters I've previewed, I am struck by how important books are to who we become. Sarah has helped me to reflect on my own love affairs with certain books and ask how they have shaped me (a...

    I had the privilege of reading the first four chapters of ?Book Girl.? I can hardly contain my excitement for receiving my very own copy of Sarah?s delightful book tomorrow (September 4, 2018), on its release day!! Sarah has poured so much love into the writing of ?Book Girl...

    I absolutely love this book. I inhaled it and filled it with sticky notes. I will definitely be reading this again and again. The book lists are amazing! ...

    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 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 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 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. ...

    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...

    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 that ...

    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!...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...
