Murder at the Flamingo

Murder at the Flamingo

On 7/14 Raechel K. wrote: I’ve got a lot of cover-love for this one. Not to mention the clever title. :) I liked the story itself alright, but to be honest it wasn’t my most favourite.I had a bit of a hard time getting into it, and sometimes it felt choppy and jumped around a bit to where I wasn’t sure I knew what was going ... “Murder at the Flamingo” by Rachel McMillan ~ Book Review

The Orphan's Wish

The Orphan's Wish

On 6/22 Raechel K. wrote: I think this cover has to be one my favourites of Melanie Dickerson’s. :) The colors are very attractive and it’s just a very lovely cover. ^.^ The story itself is a light, sweet read. While normally I don’t so much mind or notice when reading YA if it is below my age level, I admit that I found ... “The Orphan’s Wish” by Melanie Dickerson ~ Book Review

Jesus Calling® 50 Devotions for Comfort

On 6/5 Raechel K. wrote: I looooove the Jesus Calling devotionals. I may have more than two…or more than three…Okay, so I have four different ones. And I love them all. I was very excited to see this one come available for review, because who doesn’t need comfort from Jesus? I love how these devotionals are written, as ... “Jesus Calling: 50 Devotions for Comfort” – Sarah Young ~ Review

The Heart Between Us

The Heart Between Us

On 5/3 Raechel K. wrote: Prepare yourself for an excited review ;) I’d been eyeing this book for a while just because of the cover alone, so you better believe I snatched it up eagerly when it became available to review! I knew it was one of those books that even if I didn’t like it, the cover was enough for me to drool ... “The Heart Between Us” by Lindsay Harrel ~ Book Review

Same Kind of Different As Me Movie Edition

Same Kind of Different As Me Movie Edition

On 2/10 Raechel K. wrote: This biography/autobiography is written in first person and reads slightly like a fiction title. Each chapter alternates between each man, Ron Hall and Denver Moore, as they tell their stories and how their life-paths entwined to form a strong bond of friendship. In the beginning, they are about as opposite ... “Same Kind of Different As Me” by Ron Hall and Denver Moore ~ Book Review

Jesus Always Large Deluxe

Jesus Always Large Deluxe

On 12/13 Raechel K. wrote: I love these “Jesus…” devotionals. They’re so beautiful, and full of Biblical truth, spoken from Jesus. I can be kind of picky when it comes to daily devotional books, but these have been a blessing to me, each day feeling like it came right from Yahweh just for me. The Lord definitely uses them ...

The Promise of a Letter

The Promise of a Letter

On 9/19 Raechel K. wrote: Surprisingly to me, I am enjoying this Amish series. Personally I am not a huge fan of Amish fiction, but the first two books of this newer series have been interesting reads that keep me occupied. I enjoy the characters, and the plots have been sweet. In “The Promise of a Letter”, we get to see ... Book Review: "The Promise of a Letter" by Kathleen Fuller

The Sweet Smell of Magnolias and Memories

The Sweet Smell of Magnolias and Memories

On 6/12 Raechel K. wrote: This book sounded good from the description, and with its added lovely cover, I requested it for review. And at first I thought maybe I’d enjoy it as a light fluffy read, but as I got even just a couple chapters in, I was disturbed by some of its content. There were a lot of innuendos, crudeness, and ... The Sweet Smell of Magnolia's and Memories by Celeste Fletcher McHale ~ book review

The Noble Servant

The Noble Servant

On 5/14 Raechel K. wrote: A continuation to Melanie Dickerson’s Medieval FairyTale Series, “The Noble Servant” tells us the tale of Lady Magdalen whom we met in “The Beautiful Pretender”. While reading TBP, I was looking forward to reading Lady Magdalen’s tale, and so as soon as this came available for review, I grabbed ...

Written In Love

Written In Love

On 4/22 Raechel K. wrote: The idea of a book about letters immediately caught my attention – I love letter-writing. :) This was an incredibly sweet story. And actually my first Amish fiction. The genre isn’t really my taste, but this book surprised me. It was really good – the story was really good. I just loved how it ... BookLook Review: "Written in Love" by Kathleen Fuller

The Silent Songbird

The Silent Songbird

On 12/16 Raechel K. wrote: I really love the cover of this book. As usual for a Dickerson book, the cover is very beautiful and captivating, and represents the story inside very well. This was a retelling of The Little Mermaid – what I love best about Melanie Dickerson’s books is that they are Christian Fairy-Tale Retellings ... BookLook Review: "The Silent Songbird"

A Daring Sacrifice

A Daring Sacrifice

On 4/12 Raechel K. wrote: Well, I have to be honest and say I did not – could not – finish this one. I made it over halfway through before giving up, though I did read the last chapter and skimmed bits and pieces of the end. I was nervous to start it because I had concerns from “An Uncertain Choice” but I wanted to carry ... BookLook Book Review: “A Daring Sacrifice" by Jody Hedlund

The Good, the Bad, and the Grace of God

On 7/8 Raechel K. wrote: I really enjoyed this book – more than I thought I would, actually. Being that my family and myself are Duck Dynasty fans, I was interested when I saw this book up for review – and knowing that my parents would want to read it as much as I would, I didn’t hesitate to request it. It was so interesting ... BookLook Book Review: “The Good, the Bad and the Grace of God” by Jep and Jessica Robertson

On 5/2 Raechel K. wrote: Spectacular. That’s what I think of this book. It knocked the socks off me ;) But truly, I was very impressed with this book and fell in love with it immediately.

Remember the Lilies

Remember the Lilies

On 3/3 Raechel K. wrote: Historical Fiction is one of my favourites, because I enjoy history, but I don’t always enjoy reading history books as so often they drone on and nothing really sinks in – but for me, historical fiction tells a great story, all the while weaving history into the plot. It is so beautiful, and often ... Booklook Book Review: “Remember the Lilies” by Liz Tolsma

Both of Me

Both of Me

On 1/15 Raechel K. wrote: This would’ve gotten a full-rounded 4 stars, very possibly 4.5/5 stars had it not been for the ending. I couldn’t do the ending. I mean, why? Maybe there was a reason, but I don’t think it was necessary. I can think of other ways to end it. In fact, I wrote a short ending of I how I wished it would’ve ...

On 11/12 Raechel K. wrote: I haven’t read any of Miss Dickerson’s books previously, though I wanted to, and so when I saw this book available to be reviewed, I jumped at the possibility. It was very good, and I will most definitely continue to read books by this author. “The Princess Spy” has a light, fairy-tale feel to ... BookLook Book Review: The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson
