Hey everyone!

Hattush’s Questions:

1. What is a book that youโ€™ve read three times?

I’ve read a LOT of books 3 times, and many much more than than! xD So it’s hard to figure out one I’ve read exactly three times. XD *after some consideration* I think I’ve read Anne of Green Gables around 3 times. ๐Ÿ™‚

I haven’t read a lot of fantasy, so I’m not sure… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Again, this is hard. ๐Ÿ˜…

โ€œThere are no ‘if’s’ in God’s world. And no places that are safer than other places. The center of His will is our only safety – let us pray that we may always know it!โ€ Corrie Ten Boom


7. Favorite fiction author?

Rebekah Jones, Maggie Cyr, and Malachi Cyr. ๐Ÿ˜

8. One book that you wish was a series?
