Book Review: Nether Bound (Book 1) by Bonnie Rae

Summary: Seventeen year old Ava Walker has everything a girl could ask for. She’s captain of the cheer squad, has tons of friends, and could easily have any guy she wants. Being popular is easy. Lying about her entire life, on the other hand, isn’t. Since she was little, Ava has had a connection with […]

Twenty thousand words! 20k! Holy WOW! & #WriteMotivation

A fathom-able achievement? Yesterday, I achieved 20,000 words on my WIP#1. While it may not sound like a lot to you weathered novelists, it is super fantastic to me! I’m skipping, singing, jumping up and down, dancing, twirling. I’ve made it to 20,000 words on a single story! YAY! This is starting to become solid for […]

Book Review – Invisible by Jeanne Bannon

Invisible by Jeanne Bannon My rating: 3 of 5 stars I won an e-copy of this book via the author’s blog: http://beyondwordsblog.blogspot.com/ I am a slow reader, as I like to enjoy the book. But I also am doing many other things, like writing my own. So, it took me a little while to finish […]

Book Review: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins My rating: 3 of 5 stars *SPOILER ALERT!* After finishing this book yesterday, I am still fuming. I feel cheated by the ending. Why is it that authors of series, good series, tend not to know when to end the book? Look at JK Rowlins, she could have left the Epilogue […]

Book Review: Catching Fire By Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins My rating: 4 of 5 stars I’ve overcome my problems with reading the first person present POV. I’ve felt every twisting, confusing thought that plagued Katniss. I felt what Ms. Collins intended me to feel about each and every other character through the eyes of Katniss. Although, I am still […]

Book Review: The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins My rating: 4 of 5 stars This was my first encounter with first person, present tense POV. It took a little getting used to because I am so interested in getting into the heads of/the psychology of all the other characters. First person POV did not afford me that […]

This is not the end…. #writemotivation

Here we are, the last Monday of January. It’s been a great month for some, a mediocre one for others, and downright non-productive for a few others. But you know what? It’s important how many words you get down on the page every day. It’s not even important if you didn’t meet all your goals. […]

Your Teacher Said What?!: Defending Our Kids from the Liberal Assault on Capitalism — Book Review

Your Teacher Said What?!: Defending Our Kids from the Liberal Assault on Capitalism by Joe Kernen My rating: 5 of 5 stars As a parent with a child in the public school system, I found this a book a wonderful read. I’ve pretty much got a handle on the topics here but Joe Kernen breaks […]

Skeleton Lake, by Angela Kulig — Review

Skeleton Lake by Angela Kulig My rating: 2 of 5 stars All the reviews I read made me want to read this book. I was so excited when I received my copy and couldn’t wait to read it. From the first chapter, I was completely lost. I had no clue what was being said. Maybe […]

The Doctor’s Lady – A Book Review

The Doctor’s Lady by Jody Hedlund My rating: 5 of 5 stars It is amazing to know what God’s plan is for you. A lot of people do not know what God plans for them. They seek it their entire lives. But Priscilla White knew it from a very early age. Her only obstacle–the Mission […]

The Preacher’s Bride — A Book Review

The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund My rating: 5 of 5 stars This was not my first time reading Historical Fiction. However it was my first read of Historical Christian Fiction. Skeptical at first, I didn’t quite understand the genre and half expected preaching to be involved. As I delved in, I quickly realized that […]

#FridayReads

A few weeks back, I noticed a few of my Tweeple (twitter friends) posting what they were reading along with a hashtag of #FridayReads. It has always been fun to see what different people are reading. It is an insight into their likes, dislikes, and possibly character. And it is a great way add new […]

3am comes early…and so unexpectedly!

Last Christmas, I bought my son the “How To Train Your Dragon” series by Cressida Cowell. He wanted to see the movie so bad when I showed him the trailer back last October. We had made a deal. I would not take him to watch the movie unless he read the book. He agreed and […]
