Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Dee Henderson does it again. Threads of Suspicion was a definite page turner and was far better than any mystery on tv!

As I posted the picture for this book, I realized what the book cover was about. Anyone else read the book and not figure out the bench?

I love the suspense the mystery and the character development in this book. I feel like the people are my friends and am pulling for them throughout the book. Cant wait for her next book to come out!

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.



You know a book must be ok when you read it to your almost 3 year old daughter, close it, and she immediately hands it to her dad to read it again. When God Made You was a cute story with lots of rhymes in the book to keep you interested.

I also love the theme of the book and how God made each of us unique and how the world needs each of us just how we are. I want my girls to know that God has made them just how they need to be.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of this book.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


The Chapel Car Bride was a great historical romance. The pastor and his daughter traveled around to mining towns in a train car doing evangelism work. I thought this added a new perspective to the book as I have never read a book with this theme.

I loved watching the good prevail even though it took a while to get to that point.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.



I love how the chapters in 8 Simple Tools for Raising Great Kids were small. I felt like as a mom with littles, I could truly read the chapters and then implement them immediately in my life. The concepts weren't huge, but they were hard. Ideas such as not yelling at your kids, but speaking to them firmly with love. I needed to be reminded of that one yesterday!

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.



Vibrant India would be great for anyone looking to try Indian food. The food all looked delicious. It made me wishing that I had an Indian friend nearby to cook me some Indian food.

I would have a hard time finding and buying ingredients for recipes in my small town.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of Vibrant India in exchange for an honest review.

Cozy Uo With Some Good Books


All the Pretty Things was an interesting read. Another biography were the author grows up in far from ideal circumstances. Makes me so thankful for the family that I grew up in. Edie had struggled through relationships to find God and struggled to really plant her faith in God. But she did and thrived for it.

Towards the end of the book, her family suffered a house fire. I was encouraged to read the raw emotions that she had at that time as I could totally relate. 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of this book.


Conspiracy of Silence would be a great book for someone who likes history and a little adventure. I had a hard time getting in the stage that was set for the historical aspect, so I decided to give myself grace to not finish reading.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.

 

In the Shadow of Denali was a fun read about the Alaskan territory. A little romance, suspense, and mystery. Those three things make a book better!

I loved seeing the characters struggle with their relationships with God during the hard times as this helped me to know that I can struggle and grow during my hard times as well.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.



The Kindness Challenge is one of those books that you love to hate. I always thought I was a pretty kind person. Ha! I have how much I struggle at times to show kindness to people. Kindness really is a lot more than just not saying mean things about others.

Cozy Up With Some Good Books


Abraham and Sarah is a very historically accurate book. Now, I am not a history buff at all, so I like when there is some non historical added in to make a book good. Not happening in this book.Not necessarily a bad thing, just hard for me to get into the book. I tried, but after a few chapters, I just couldn't do it.

I am trying to give myself grace to not finish a book that I am not in love with,so I put this book down.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.


 

From This Day Forward was a good book. I enjoy this time period and wonder what it would be like to live a more simple but also more demanding life. This book for me was not a book that I couldn't put down, but I did read it all and did enjoy it! 

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.


 

Happiness is something that I can struggle with as a stay at home mom of littles. So, when I saw this book, I snatched it up. Randy starts the chapters with a few verses to think about and then gives a few pages of his own thoughts to think about the verses.I am enjoying this book in my pursuit to make my happiness genuine. 

Thanks to Tyndale for a copy of 60 Days of Happiness.


 

In our Sunday school class at church, we have been going through the life of Jesus, so I was excited about this book.Women were such an important part in the life and ministry of Christ. I want my life to be an important part of Christ's ministry now.

I love how Liz incorporates a lot of Scripture throughout all the chapters of this book.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of The Women of Easter.

Design Your Day was a great quick read. As I was thinking about the next year, and making goals, this book made me think about my goals.

I love how Claire wants people to focus on their goals,but then gives them strategies to be able to get things done so that they can enjoy life.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.








Habit Changers gave a page that had a mantra on the page and then explained about how you can use that mantra in your life.


For me, this book would be a good coffee table book where you could read as time permits. Not really a book that I really wanted to sit down and just dive into.

Thanks to Blogging for Books for a copy of this book.






 Lord, Change My Attitude Before It's Too Late has been a hard one to read because I have needed it so much. I haven't gotten all the way through it because I have had to take my time. 

I like to have a bad attitude and complain too much. This book works on that attitude. Youch. Can't say I am loving this book,but I am needing this book.

Thanks to Moody for a copy of this book.

  You're Saying It Wrong was a fun book to look through. I actually passed this book along to a friend who is big on words. I am sure she enjoyed this book. There are words and phrases in this book that are constantly misused. Those phrases that I actually did use, I used incorrectly. Yikes!

Thanks to Blogging For Books for a copy of this book.








 
Greater Than Gold was a very open look into David Boudia's life. I did appreciate getting to see his honesty and also getting to see his turning his life over to God. What an encouraging read.

Thanks to BookLook for a copy of this book.









Fatal Frost kept me turning! I wasn't feeling the best for a day, and this book got me through. I do love a good action book, and this one fit that bill.

Nancy does a great job of keeping suspense while building up her characters.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of this book.








Earth Psalms is a beautiful book.The pictures are coffee table worthy. My almost 1 year old actually sat and flipped through this book the other day.

The devotional passages are also great. They chapters aren't super long, but they are thought provoking as well.

Thanksto Tyndale for allowing me to give an honest review of this book.
