I had been wanting to read this book for a very long time.  It is written by one of my favorite authors, in one of my favorite genres…I honestly don’t know why it took me so long. I think is one of the best books fiction books that I have read in a very long time.  It has taken me quite a while to read it in its entirety, but I finally read it from cover to cover, last month.  I thought that it was going to take me a very long time...

As you know, I am a Christian woman. I review books from a literary, Christian, and, sometimes, parenting perspective.   This was my first time attempting to read a graphic novel. I had seen many people talking about how much they enjoyed reading the “Saga” series and without doing my research, I placed a hold on it at my local library. I was with my children, so without scanning the book, I checked it out. The librarian said ...

When I first sat down to read this book, I was excited.  Not because I had ever read one of Toni Morrison’s books, but because of all the hype that had been given to her works alone.  Each one of the booktubers, that had mentioned any title written by Toni Morrison, gave such praise to her writings.  I own a few of her works because they were optional reads while I worked on my Bachelor’s degree in English, but I had never opted to...

I think I was already doing this, but Pat Williams showed me a different perspective and helped me to take a realistic survey of my current tactics. ...

When I originally sat down to start reading this book, I thought that I wouldn’t like it.  I wasn’t sure if it was one of those books that appeared to be pro-Christian, only for the reader to find out that it was very anti-Christian.  I thought that I would have to refute many of the author’s points in my review.  Needless to say, I was on guard. From the beginning of the book. Barry Cooper jumps right in to the position that...

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus from reading and book tubing.  My children were sick and I had to read required materials for the courses that I was attending.  During that time, I visited my local used bookstore.  I was so pleased at what I had found. I had never been there before and I wasn’t sure what type of prices I should expect.  When I saw that the prices were so reasonable, $2-$4, I was very pleased. I also had a ...
