Hello ladies and gents! Sorry, too many hours listening to an audio book with a British narrator has made me feel inclined to be a bit more posh on the blog... anyone want a scone? 😉 I'll keep this post short and sweet; I've had an idea for some time to curate and sell a… Continue reading Christian Fiction Subscription?
Merry Christmas (Eve) everyone! I really should have posted yesterday, but I have a quiet moment now and thought perhaps you might enjoy seeing a rather large pile of books I added to my collection! Do you have any favorite thrift store memories? I just recently stopped by a local used bookstore that uses their… Continue reading New(ish) Books and Felicitations
I've been looking for another great audio book to follow All Manner of Things, as well as trying to get to know a new app I downloaded through our library called RBdigital. The app seems to focus primarily on media, so I've been excited to see if they have a good selection of Christian fiction… Continue reading Goldilocks and the Three Books
Some of you may already know that I do not receive free books to review from Christian fiction publishers such as Tyndale or Bethany House, but I thought it might be interesting to share with you why that is! Before I get started, let me just mention-- in the spirit of kindness--that I'm in no… Continue reading Why I Don’t Accept Free Books from Publishers…and the One Time I Do!
Around the book-blogging community I've seen something called Dream Casting. Oh, don't worry-- it's not some sort of pagan bedtime ritual! If you haven't heard of it before, it's casting in the sense of choosing someone for an acting role. Basically, you take a novel or other work you would really like to see translated… Continue reading Dream Casting “Hidden Among the Stars”
Hello book friends! You haven’t seen me in a while! I’m not going to apologize, because these last weeks have been full, happy, lovely ones for me with family—a birthday party, time with my nieces, a rabbit show (really!), ordering pizza, encouraging sermons from my Pastor, joyful choir practices, and sitting on the front step… Continue reading Thoughts on Black by Ted Dekker
This week I want to have a little fun (who am I kidding, I'm always having fun!) and match up titles I've read with various teas I adore. You'll get to know me a little as I pair up blends with books! This is easier done than explained, so let's get started... Constant Comment— A… Continue reading Tea and a Tome
I love book photography. I think, deep down, I kind of want to be great with a camera... to be that person with a fancy DSLR running around capturing beautiful moments and posting them to Instagram with vague inspirational quotes and matching emojis. The photo I wish I took Reality As much as I may… Continue reading Bookstagram Cliches
Science fiction. Final frontiers, colorful characters, thrilling and imaginative challenges to overcome... I love it. But where's the Christian Science Fiction? I realize it's more difficult to write because so many of the common constructs of science fiction do not fit within a Biblical worldview, but it can be done. As a teen, for example,… Continue reading The One I Really Want to Love
The Christy Awards Gala came and went (and life flew by for me—did anyone miss the lack of a Monday post these past two weeks?) I’ve got two books underway and hope to have a new review up in seven days (ah, the troubles of a book reviewer who also happens to be a slow… Continue reading First Impressions–Christy 2018 Winners
