A Book Review: Dark Enough to See the Stars in a Jamestown Sky

    Hi! This week I'm going to be reviewing a great historical fiction pick. The writing was so incredible I'm already planning to read the next two in the series. This also wins the medal for the book with the longest title that I've ever read.

    There may be some spoilers as I try to give an accurate picture of the book.

   (The discussion questions will have spoilers, since they are supposed to be used after reading the book.)

A Book Review: The Doll People

    Hello! This week I'm going to review another one of my favorite books, which I think is a perfect read anytime, anyplace! Although there have been many books and movies with similar concepts, this one stands out to me, and is definitely worth checking out.

A Book Review: Wet Cement: A Mix of Concrete Poems

    Hey, bookworms! Today will be my first time reviewing a collection of poetry. When I created this blog, I didn't include poetry as part of my "Review Policy" list, because other than books like "Love That Dog" (which I adored), I hadn't found any I wanted to recommend here. But this time the poetry I've chosen is a perfect fit.

    I'm also trying something new this week by mixing in writing prompts along with my discussion questions. I hope you enjoy them.

    This time, my review is spoiler free!

    This is my fourth author interview on this blog. In the past I've featured Jordyn Hadden, Avarose White, and Tara Grayce. Check out those posts by clicking on the links attached to the names.

Book Beginnings on Fridays: Starring Me

    Hello! I'm so excited to share my first Book Beginning on Friday with you. This book is a sequel to a great YA read I reviewed last week, called First Date. (You can find my review of it HERE.) Though both books are about Christian life, the first one focuses on a girl who's already a Christian, while this one is about a girl just finding out more about Christians. Both, however, are fun, spunky books that take a look at different parts of show business, viewed through the eyes of ordinary characters.

    So, let's get to the first line!

Top Ten Tuesdays: Books That Should Be Adapted Into Netflix Shows/Movies

     Hi, and welcome to another Top Ten Tuesday list! I was very excited about this list's theme, as I am always finding books I think are good enough to be made into movies. Some of these are more recent reads, while some I've kept close to me through the years, hoping that someone else with the right connections will also see the "big-screen" potential in these books.

    Click below to see the list, including the genre, age target, why I chose the book for my list, and any issues I can remember for whoever wants to check it out. I've also included a link to the book's Amazon page.

    Since it was hard for me to choose just ten this time, I did some extra credit and put in three runner-up titles, just for the fun of it! I hope you enjoy these additional book recommendations.

    All of these Top Ten Tuesday lists are supposed to be spoiler-free, though minor spoilers may sneak in a few times.

A Book Review: First Date

    Hi! Earlier last week I said that I would be reviewing the first installment of one of my favorite series. However, I ended up reading this book and thought it was so good I wanted to share it instead. This was my first time reading a book by this author, and after reading this one I can't wait to read more from her.

    There may be some spoilers as I try to give an accurate picture of the book.
