Ms. Moon

Well, Ms, Moon I am nearly halfway done with Miss Benson's Beetle, and I must say I love it, so very much. It strikes me as forever since I read a book for nothing but the pure pleasure of reading it. 

It strikes me that the three main characters are really all driven by the same thing: fear. And that their ways of coping with their disparate fears is as different as night and day. 

I was reading in bed tonight and burst out laughing at the police stop as Marjory discovers that Enid has stolen the jeep they are in. Tim asked me what was so funny and I read it aloud to him, and we laughed together, 

Thank you for your book suggestion. 

PS: When I am done with this, I have The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry as well as The Love Song Of Miss Queenie Hennessy. What a luxury!


  1. Lovely when one has a book to look forward to that you know you are going to enjoy.

  2. That sounds like a fun read!

  3. I never get time to read these days. Great book reading list.

  4. Thanks for the book mentions - I am always looking for titles to read!

  5. OK, I may have to try this book.

  6. I've tagged Miss Benson's Beetle in my library app! Thanks!

  7. I have read "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry". It is a quirky idea but a lovely, easy read too. Hope you also enjoy that one.

  8. I rarely do book reviews, but I just finished The Rule of Four so I shall have to think about it.

  9. Based on this post I downloaded it to my Nook app (on my phone) and started reading it. It's so much fun so far! I think my book club might like it too.

  10. By the way, thank you for your recommendation. I've just put a hold on Miss Benson's Beetle for my Kindle and wow! It's a 6 month wait for it.

  11. Hi, long time lurker, first time commenting here (I love your blog by the way). I just wanted to say I am also reading Miss Benson's Beetle after Ms Moon's recommendation and also loving it. I've read the Harold Fry book and enjoyed that, and I will put Queenie Hennessey on my list. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is another one in a similar vein and A Man Called Ove. Oh those of us who love to read could just on and on couldn't we! Cheers, Anna (in France)


  12. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC ( in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.


I'm glad you're here!
