Books & Bloggers Swap Part Tres Reveal

I was paired with the wonderful Amanda at Orandi et Legendi. Here is what she sent me.


  •  Book she’s read: The Secret of the Rosary by St. Louis De Montfort
  • Book she’s never read but looks interesting: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
  • Book from my wishlist: Shanghai Girls by Lisa See
  • Beautiful blue rosary

I loved my books. Thank you, Amanda! You should check her out on all her social media platforms.
