Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively

blog-image-advert-reach-for-your-light-1Reach For Your Light by Ces Creatively was an interesting book to read.  I am still not sure how I really feel about this book but that is okay with me.  I really did enjoy the author’s style of writing but there were times where things almost seemed rushed.  There were times where I got confused because of the supernatural parts of the book but I believe that is because I am not a huge fan of supernatural books but that didn’t make me want to stop reading the book.  Other than those times this was a good book to read and something that I am glad that I read.

When I Fall In Love by Susan May Warren

Book Review GraphicWhen I Fall In Love by Susan May Warren was another hit for me.  I have read several other books by Susan May Warren and I loved them all.  This book didn’t let me down to say the least.  From the first page right up until the last page and it also left me wanting to read the rest of the books in this series.  I loved the characters and I love how Susan May Warren can make you feel as if you are their with the characters and you also feel like the characters are real people.  I literally can’t say enough good things about this book because it was amazing.  If you love romance books than this is one I would for sure check out!

When I Fall in Love

About The Book

Hawaii was the last place Grace Christiansen ever imagined she’d vacation, much less fall in love. But when her family surprises her with a cooking retreat in paradise, she is pulled-or maybe yanked-away from her predictable, safe life and thrown headfirst into the adventure of a lifetime.

Max Sharpe may make his living on the ice as a pro hockey player, but he feels most at home in the kitchen. Which is why he lives for the three-week culinary vacation he takes each year in Hawaii. Upon being paired with Grace for a cooking competition, Max finds himself drawn to her passion, confidence, and perseverance. But just when Grace dares to dream of a future beyond her hometown, Max pulls away.

Wrestling with personal demons, Max fights against opening his heart to a love he knows he should never hope for. And as his secrets unfold, Grace is torn between the safe path in front of her and what her heart truly desires. If love means sacrificing her ideal happily ever after, Grace’s faith will face its toughest test yet.

Graham Greene-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This weeks quote is by Graham Greene and it is about childhood & letting the future in.

Graham Greene

I loved this quote because it is so true at least it is to me.  I know my whole childhood I was almost forced to grow up and become more of an adult because of things that happened to me.  The one time I remember though was when I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 15 or 16.  I still remember sitting in the doctors office finding out that I had MS and knowing from that point on that my life was about to change and I had to start making adult decisions because I had a disease that was never going to go away or get any better.

Did anything like that ever happen to you?

What do you think of this week quote and as usual let me know what quotes you are loving right now.

The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron

Book Review GraphicThe Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron was an amazing book.  I do have to say that this book was hard for me to get through at certain parts because of how the story goes but that also is another reason that I loved the book.  I love all books from the WWII time period and this book didn’t let me down at all.  If you are going to read this book be prepared for it have sad parts but I wouldn’t let those parts stop me from reading this book.  It is one that I am going to keep in my collection because I loved it that much.

The Butterfly & the Violin

About The Book

A mysterious painting breathes hope and beauty into the darkest corners of Auschwitz—and the loneliest hearts of Manhattan.

Manhattan art dealer Sera James watched her world crumble at the altar two years ago, and her heart is still fragile. Her desire for distraction reignites a passion for a mysterious portrait she first saw as a young girl—a painting of a young violinist with piercing blue eyes.

In her search for the painting, Sera crosses paths with William Hanover, the grandson of a wealthy California real estate mogul, who may be the key to uncovering the hidden masterpiece. Together, Sera and William slowly unravel the story behind the painting’s subject: Austrian violinist Adele Von Bron.

A darling of the Austrian aristocracy, talented violinist, and daughter to a high-ranking member of the Third Reich, Adele risks everything when she begins smuggling Jews out of Vienna. In a heartbeat, her life of prosperity and privilege dissolves into a world of starvation and barbed wire.

As Sera untangles the secrets behind the painting, she finds beauty in the most unlikely of places: in the grim camps of Auschwitz and in the inner recesses of her own troubled heart.

Blog Update

Blog UpdateI don’t know the last time I did an update post for this blog and since I have a few things I wanted to let everyone know and I have a few questions I would like answered I figured now was the time to write one.

First thing I wanted to let everyone know is that I put a donate button on my sidebar. I did this because I could really use money to help pay for hosting and other up keep items. So if you would like to donate feel free but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. I have always hated asking for money but I figured I would write about it once and then leave it at that.

Second thing is I wanted to let everyone know I am working on a new design for this blog because I am ready for a change. I am not sure how many people were around when I was still blogging on Blogger but I used to change my designs all the time because it was so much easier. Ever since I have moved to wordpress I have only had one other design so I am really due for another design. I will be working on it and rolling it out slowly so keep an eye out for that.

Instead of just listing questions I created this form using Google Documents because I figured it would be easier for me to track answers to the questions so if you have a few minutes I would love for you to answers the questions and let me know what you think.


Thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and comment. You will never know how much it means to me!

Deadly Assets by Wendy Tyson

deadly assets buttonDeadly Assets by Wendy Tyson was an amazing book.  I love books like this one and I wasn’t let down to say the least.  From the day I started it I didn’t want to put the book down until I had finished reading it.  I loved everything about this book.  The author did a great job of keeping my attention and making me like all the characters in the book.  The book also kept me wondering what was going to happen next which is always a good thing for me.  There are some books that I know what is going to happen before it happens but this one wasn’t one of them!  If you love mystery/suspense books than this one is for you!

deadly-assets-194x300About The Book

An eccentric Italian heiress from the Finger Lakes. An eighteen-year-old pop star from Scranton, Pennsylvania. Allison Campbell’s latest clients seem worlds apart in every respect, except one: Both women disappear on the same day. And Allison’s colleague Vaughn is the last to have seen each.

Allison’s search for a connection uncovers an intricate web of family secrets, corporate transgressions and an age-old rivalry that crosses continents. The closer Allison gets to the truth, the deadlier her quest becomes. All paths lead back to a sinister Finger Lakes estate and the suicide of a woman thirty years earlier. Allison soon realizes the lives of her clients and the safety of those closest to her aren’t the only things at stake.

Valerie Bertinelli-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The Week

This weeks quote is by Valerie Bertinelli.

Valerie Bertinelli

I chose this quote by Valerie Bertinelli because I have a great deal of stress going on at work right now and I loved what it said.  I am trying to not let the stress get to me too much because there isn’t anything I can really do about the stress right now.  I do know that it will end soon enough because it can’t last forever.

What do you think?  How do you deal with stress?

Penny Wise by Dave and Neta Jackson

Book Review Graphic

Penny Wise by Dave and Neta Jackson wasn’t the book for me.  I am not sure why this book didn’t work for me but I just couldn’t get into it to save my life.  I did enjoy the author’s writing and how they told the story but as for the story itself it just wasn’t the story for me.  There really isn’t much more I can say because I really didn’t enjoy this book.

Penny Wise

About The Book

Penny Wiseintroduces us to yet another family in “the neighborhood”—the Jaspers, busy with demanding jobs, busy with church, busy volunteering, parents of three active teenagers, juggling sometimes crazy schedules. All good things. Until all those “good things” feed into a series of crises that affects the whole family. Something’s gotta change!The third in the Windy City Neighbors series, Penny Wise is a contemporary peek at an urban family wrestling with the spiritual and practical challenges of real life. The series employs the innovating storytelling technique of “parallel novels,” each with its own drama and story arc, but whose characters’ lives become intertwined with their neighbors and affect one another. Welcome to Beecham Street—a typical, isolated American neighborhood that is beginning to come out of its shell . . . for better or worse.

 

Dave and Neta Jackson

About The Authors

Dave and Neta Jackson are award-winning authors living in the Chicago area where their parallel novels from the Yada Yada House of Hope and Harry Bentley series are set. As a husband/wife writing team, Dave and Neta Jackson are enthusiastic about books, kids, walking with God, gospel music, and each other! Together they are the authors or coauthors of over 100 books.
