Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time one of my favorite novel-turned-film adaptation, the New York Times bestseller, Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy, by
It’s best to begin this review by admitting: I’m biased. I love this book. I liked the film, too! With that said, I was excited to see that a new 20th Anniversary Edition with a New Afterword was currently available, and even for those who are already familiar with this story will love this new copy as well.
For those unfamiliar with the plot, it’s worth noting that two decades ago, Frances Mayes–widely published poet and travel writer–introduced readers to a wondrous new world known as Tuscany when she bought and restored an abandoned villa, Bramasole, located Tuscan countryside.
Under the Tuscan inspired generations to start their own journeys–whether that be flying to a foreign country or creating out of the box seasonal recipes, or simply being transported by Mayes’s signature sensory, flowery, friendly, familiar language.
Now, with a new afterword from the Bard of Tuscany herself, the 20th-anniversary edition of Under the Tuscan Sun brings us up-to-date with the book’s most beloved characters in a new and refreshing way.
This book is currently sold in paperback for under $12.00 shipped two-day using Amazon Prime, here.
This book is a keeper!

Hello again, everyone. Today finds us with a new review and this time it’s 66 Ways God Loves YouExperience God’s Love for You in Every Book of the Bible, by Jennifer Rothschild.
As a longtime blog and periscope follower of Ms. Rothschild, I knew this selection would be a keeper, and the book itself did not disappoint.
This book is many things—instructive, historical, poetic, inquisitive, and sentimental. Which makes sense, as Jennifer Rothschild, often lovingly refers to the Bible as a love letter to God’s children. In 66 Ways God Loves You, the author navigates you through each of the sixty-six books of the Bible and shows, in concise yet easy to understand ways, how every book in the Bible reflects God’s love for each of us.
Moreover, each chapter includes a meaningful reading the message of that book in the Bible, along with a simple to follow take away to help you bring the message to light in and for seasonal Bible journaling as well.
This book would make a great gift for ladies on your holiday book list as well as yourselves this coming holiday season. An added bonus? This book is affordably priced for under $11.00 shipped with Amazon Prime 2-day shipping. To find out more about this book, click here.
