The Whisper Theory

The Whisper Theory

On 1/19 Charity Gamble wrote: First of all, the book is nothing like it was advertised to me where I got it. It was advertised as a Christian Fiction book and nothing more. Turns out it's a Christian Fiction + Bible Study book and not a very good one at that. The writing in this book is very choppy - it reminds me of the poorly ...

Catch Me If You Can

Catch Me If You Can

On 12/12 Charity Gamble wrote: I can't help it. I simply didn't care for the book. It was just too simply written. I realize that the book is supposed to appeal to middle/high school kids, but honestly, every middle/high school kid can read far more complexly written books than this was. The characters have little to no depth to them ... Catch Me If You Can by Carrie Marston

The House on Moody Avenue

The House on Moody Avenue

On 11/4 Charity Gamble wrote: I've spent a couple of weeks just trying to read this book. It isn't that I haven't been trying to read it, because I have. But it just seems to be one of those books I just can't get into. You know the type - they look so good, but you can't do it. You can't read it. Maybe it was the cover that drew ...

Frost Bible

On 11/4 Charity Gamble wrote: I've seen a few reviews panning this Bible and I honestly can't see why. It's meant to appeal to kids who love Frozen with the cover design of swirling snowflakes & glitter. But it's not meant to be related to Frozen in any other way. This Bible is gorgeous. Soft blue, glittery, gorgeous swirling snowflakes ... Frost Bible

#Struggles

On 10/27 Charity Gamble wrote: I should have known this book would tick me off. Books of this type usually do. I’ll be perfectly honest – I’ve been there, done the whole “living for Christ” thing – and got exactly zero blessing from it. I don’t see very many people being blessed because they got their social media addictions ... #Struggles by Craig Groeschel

The Looney Experiment

The Looney Experiment

On 10/26 Charity Gamble wrote: I don’t normally read what is classified as Middle Grade Fiction, but something about this book spoke to me. Perhaps it was the fact that our main character and narrator Atticus Hobart is bullied and so were my best friend and I. Maybe not, but upon discovering that the book deals in a way with the ...

Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe - Paperback

On 10/22 Charity Gamble wrote: I haven’t read a Christian fiction book for quite a while now— as you can probably tell from my review archives. But something about Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café just seemed to say “read me.” I’m glad I did. Miracle at the Higher Grounds Café is a short read—just a couple of hours—but ...
