Cozy Up With a Good Book

Deadly Echoes was a rare read for me. I could not put it down. I actually had to stay up to read the book. Ok, we are talking about staying up until 10!

I love when an author can throw suspense at you and truly keep you enthralled. Nancy was able to do just that. I was on the edge of my seat fighting for Sarah's life.

I also had never really thought about how hard it would be to raise a child whose mother had been killed. All the emotions and challenges that go along with that struggle. Good to put myself in those shoes, even if it isn't true, I can imagine the struggles are there.

Thanks to Bethany House for a copy of Deadly Echoes in exchange for an honest review.

 Only God Can Make a Kitten is a very cute book about lots of different things that God made. I love the pictures in the book and the story line of the book. They end the book by saying that the child is the most important thing that God made.

The one thing that I wish would change about this book is that a father would show up at some point. The book seems like they were exploring for a whole day and end up at home when it is dark outside. Just wish at that point that they would have stuck the dad in the book. I know not all families are that way and I don't think it takes away from the book.

 I am excited that this book is one that will be added to my bookshelf for many years.

This Is What You Just Put in Your Mouth?: From Eggnog to Beef Jerky, the Surprising Secrets is a good coffee table read. There are several different products that all the ingredients are listed out that are in them.

The book is split up into 2 parts, things that you eat and then things that you don't eat.

Some of the ingredients and then what they are confuse me. Maybe this confusion is a sign that I should not be consuming them!

One example give is I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. One of the ingredients that is listed is poisonous at the cellular level. Not believed to be carcinogenic though. With this knowledge, makes me want to eat the stuff.

  1. Those all sound like interesting books. :) I think the children's book sounds like one my kids would enjoy.

  2. "This is what you just put in your mouth" sounds very interesting to me. I might have to look for that one sometime.
