Let’s Quest, You and I

Melkorka Cover

“Branimir Baran cowered away from the copper ore heating in the open hearth. He could not keep his heart from beating in his chest, knowing this would be the first weapon to ever have been crafted at Melkorka. (Melkorka by Joshua Robertson)” I found this little gem at Comic-Con in Austin. My first time at comic-con …

Review: Slumbering

Slumbering post

A Great (Christ Honoring) Gift for any Avid YA Reader! My rating: 3 of 5 stars When I first saw Slumbering on Amazon, I fell in love with the cover. Instantly I knew I needed it on my shelf. In fact, reading the description was just my GIBC (greedy inner book collector) humoring protocol before …

Review: Defier: The Girl Who Stood

Just as Katniss couldn’t not in so many situations, Lennox couldn’t not either! It’s not that she was so brave, it was that she physically couldn’t bring herself to do anything else. Doomed because of who she was and what she knew.

Review: Getting Into Character: Seven Secrets a Novelist Can Learn from Actors

Getting into Character Signed

Getting into Character has changed my life… for better and for worse. As I read about each of Brandilyn’s seven secrets, I saw them come to life elsewhere. In the books I was reading in between the secrets from Getting into Character. This provided a fantastic learning experience!

After reading Secret 1 – Personalizing – I couldn’t help but think of (don’t laugh at me!) Katniss from The Hunger Games.

Review: The Prodigal Platypus: The story of God’s endless ove and forgiveness

I can’t express enough how much I love this book. I enjoyed it so much that it is hard for me to write an objective review… And it’s a children’s picture book!

Review: A Rose For Jonathan

A Rose For Jonathan by Beth Green My rating: 4 of 5 stars Angels, The Power of Prayer and Organ Donation…..Interested? When I first started reading A Rose for Jonathan, my thoughts immediately jumped to Frank Peretti. I love his books and the way Beth Green introduces angels in her novel is very similar to …

Review: Silver’s Journey

Silver’s Journey by James Gardner My rating: 4 of 5 stars A Fascinating Tale with Laugh-Out-Loud (Call Your Best Friend and Share Quotes) Humor! Okay, to be fair, sharing humorous quotes is kind of my thing. I do it frequently. However, this is the first time I can recall feeling the need to share a …

Review: Ashlynn’s Dreams

Ashlynn’s Dreams by Julie C. Gilbert My rating: 3 of 5 stars Ashlynn’s Dreams was approached in a very unique way. It was told through a series of letters and journal entries, making the story either intriguing or confusing, depending on your preference. Ashlynn’s Dreams makes you think. It provokes questions on morality and brings …

Review: The Truth: Salvatore’s Revenge

The Truth: Salvatore’s Revenge by Ta`Mara Hanscom My rating: 5 of 5 stars Let’s start by saying The Truth: Salvatore’s Revenge is, indeed, a very good book. In fact, it deserves to be called a great book! Other than being hilarious, The Truth is a great story on its own…as well as a wonderful continuation …
