Book Recommendation: Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig

When I heard that Ronie Kendig’s second book of The Tox Files series was coming out, I itched to get my hands on it. Because honestly, I loved the Conspiracy of Silence, and I wanted to know, “Can Ronie Kendig do it again?” Bethany House Publishers sent out their email with the Fiction selection of titles to review, and I signed right up to receive Crown of Souls. So yes, I received a free copy of Crown of Souls, and...

Guest Review by Julia on The Maze Runner Series

When Julia pinged me with an email with her idea to review The Maze Runner Series on my blog, I thought, “Why not?” Julia and I clicked in Germany over three years ago, and she has constantly been an encouragement to me despite the fact that our paths have not yet crossed in person again. But I suspect I’ll see Julia again. These things just have a way of happening. If you want to know more about Julia and her...

Book Recommendation: All of You by Sarah Monzon

Click here to purchase your copy. My first interaction with Sarah Monzon was on a Facebook group. She was worried (Sarah, I hope you don’t mind me sharing). She was worried that readers wouldn’t like All of You. Her release date approached, and she reached out for encouragement. I remember loving Sarah for her honesty and her gutsy, vulnerable post, worrying over her upcoming release. And then, well, I HAD to read her book. And may I tell you something?...

Cover Reveal: Charming the Troublemaker by Pepper Basham

Never have I ever had the privilege (fun!) of being a part of a cover reveal for an author, so I am pumped to participate in Pepper Basham’s revealing of Charming the Troublemaker.

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

As per usual, I leapt into the middle of a series. I don’t mean to do this, but it happens (way more than I care to admit). And sometimes, I just add to the confusion of the story by not knowing what has happened in the previous book. But other times, a book from the middle of a series offers enough information that I can just run along with the current story. (Obviously, I like those ones) The Assault, the...

Book Recommendation: A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

Book Recommendation Review of A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White

I tore through A Name Unknown like I had nothing else to do but read (if only that were true). I mean, I really had  a hard time putting it down, and I yearned for the moment I could pick up the book again. And I also so love working with Bethany House Publishers because they continually offer quality stories. Book Recommendation Review of A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White On a scale of cotton candy to Brussels sprouts,...

Book Recommendation (and Giveaway): Hope Prevails by Dr. Michelle Bengtson

Book Recommendation (and Giveaway): Hope Prevails by Dr. Michelle Bengtson

Depression hounds the most unlikely people. As humans, we often make rash judgments on others based on social media and other factors, but we can’t truly know what struggles are hidden under the Snapchat filters. The reality of Depression shadows my life (I have loved ones with Depression) and the lives of others. In college, I recall a crush explaining to me that someone who had Depression just must not have enough faith in God to get better. Fury boiled...

Book Recommendation: Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette

Book Recommendation: Wings of the Wind by Connilyn Cossette

I love being a part of book reviewer groups because I meet so many new authors. Two things drew me to Wings of the Wind: the cover and the heroine. I have a soft spot for a woman who chooses to dress up like a man to fight in a battle. Basically, if that’s part of the story, I want to read it. Does anyone else have a similar bent? Cordially Barbara Review On a scale of cotton candy to...

Book Recommendation: Just The Way You Are by Pepper Basham

10 Summer Reads for 2017

I “met” Pepper Basham through my little sister, but when I say met, I mean that my sister met Pepper and then told me to read Pepper’s first book, The Thorn Bearer. And just like that, I became one of Pepper’s friendly stalkers. And, I guess I’m proud to say that I continue to fangirl over her books and creep on her Facebook. What I love about Pepper Basham’s writing is that she creates characters with deep wounds and then she...
