Book Giveaway: Lydia by Diana Wallis Taylor

I absolutely judge a book by its cover, and I have to admit that one of my main reasons for picking up Diana Wallis Taylor’s Lydia was because the cover hypnotized me. I’ve also come to appreciate Biblical fiction because it offers the chance to experience a world that often seems so dry and unreal to me anymore. And Lydia is so little known in the Bible. But, Lydia certainly was an anomaly in that day and age. Not only...

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...

October 2017 Inspiration

cast iron pizza

Honestly, inspiration posts are one of my favorites to do. I just love sharing the things that I’ve been obsessing over or being inspired by. And I try to keep these posts short and sweet so a quick scroll through will give you a glimpse of possible inspirations. I know Halloween and pumpkins are a great inspiration for October. But I’m over here, just chugging away on the other random goodnesses in my life, like deep dish pizza and quirky...

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...

Author Interview: 12 Days at Bleakly Manor by Michelle Griep

Norton Conyers Manor Home

One of my favorite things about having this little space of internet is sharing it with others (who knew sharing could be so fun!). Anyway, I’m excited to have Michelle Griep here today because, honestly, I just love how she describes her novel, 12 Days at Bleakly Manor. But, even better, this book incorporates Charles Dickens. What! Yes. I just love books with layers. And Christmas. Shhh, I know it’s September. But everyone knows that Christmas starts early for artists,...

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?...

September 2017 Inspiration

Every Deadly Kiss book

When I realized that it was September, I almost fell out of my chair. Word on the street is that fall is coming, and you know, I love all the seasons. But me, I’m just NOT ready. Summer past in a blink, and I only went to the pool once. So sad. What I’m Being Inspired By Current Jam: Avicii has been dropping music all through August, and I’ve just been loving it. Nothing sounds so good to me as...

What I’ve Learned About Faith

What I've Learned About Faith

Nothing really. Like, I probably shouldn’t even be here trying to write about faith. Because when I’m super honest, I’ve sometimes considered being done with God and faith. Why? Well, When Life is Interrupted by Struggle, faith seems to come apart at the seams. And then, I find myself admitting that It’s More About What God Hasn’t Done than what He has done for me. Faith Is Not What I Expected I used to think that to have faith that...

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...
