Book Review: Passing Lincoln

Passing Lincoln is an incredibly unique new piece of Christian fiction that you won't be able to put down.

This book, y’all. If you’re looking for something to uplift you, give you some insight into human nature, and maybe even help you understand God a little better, this is the one.

And it’s such an easy read, your kids will love it, too. In fact, it would make a fantastic read-aloud for the upcoming season.

I’m not a big reader of Christian fiction . In fact, this may well be the only Christian fiction I’ve ever read on purpose. But Passing Lincoln was hands-down my favorite book of the year.

YA Book Review: The Never Dawn Series

The Never Dawn Series is a brilliant YA Dystopia that will keep you riveted from the 1st page of the 1st book to the last page of the 3rd.

You know I love me an Indie author.  Almost as much as I love a good Dystopian trilogy.  With The Never Dawn Series, I got both.

And I fell completely in love.

Author R.E. Palmer, who is from my favorite place, England (okay, so the U.S. is my really favorite place, but England is my dream trip), has turned out a non-stop, page-turning, drooling-on-yourself-and-wishing-your-eyes-weren’t-so-gritty-from-lack-of-sleep powerhouse that he should be getting paid Suzanne Collins’ advances for.

I totally mean that.

Jenny Wren – A Gentle Fostering

Jenny Wren from JourneyForth Books is a gentle middle grade novel about a young girl who desperately needs a home and the couple who give her one.

“The sudden perking sound of a tractor starting woke Jenny.  The first thing she saw was an airy curtain lifting lightly on an August morning breeze.”

So begins one of the most lyrical, gentle middle grade books I’ve ever read.

My favorite thing in the whole world (as you probably know) is sinking in to a truly good story and living there for a while.  And I must say, I got that and more with Jenny Wren by Dawn L. Watkins  from JourneyForth Publishing.
