A Harvest of Thorns

A Harvest of Thorns

On 1/30 amandainpa wrote: This book took me some time to get through as it was more of a cerebral read. It was an extremely important book for Americans to read and very interesting, but it wasn’t an enjoyable book for me. This was difficult at times as I tend to read more for pleasure and to escape. The subject matter was ... A Harvest of Thorns by Corban Addison Review

Because You're Mine

Because You're Mine

On 1/11 amandainpa wrote: I had never read a book by Colleen Coble but she’s a popular author in the Christian Fiction world so I was excited to request and read this book. I was a bit hesitant about it as I’m not a fan of romance but this book was light on the romance and heavy on the suspense (which is what I love). The ... Because You're Mine by Colleen Coble Review

On 11/24 amandainpa wrote: It’s no secret that this world can be a scary place to live in. As a Christian, I’ve noticed the divide growing wider and wider between Christians and non-Christians and it is becoming more and more difficult to stand up for what I believe in as it seems like everything is turning upside down.

Prayers and Answered Prayers

On 10/21 amandainpa wrote: This is a very unique book, it’s actually 2 books that you can keep in a clear folder or take them out and use them separately. The design is very appealing to young girls (according to my 10 year old daughter, who loves it). The clear folder is decorated with colored flowers and each book is glittery ...

With All Due Respect

On 8/29 amandainpa wrote: This book came to me at the perfect time. I’m the mother of a 13 year old son and there are days when I feel like I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to this parenting thing.

When Death Draws Near

When Death Draws Near

On 8/15 amandainpa wrote: This book provided some very interesting insight into some unusual practices involving snakes in church. I had never heard of this practice and was fascinated and kind of horrified to read about this. I despise snakes, they are my least favorite animal and the thought of them makes me cringe, so this ... When Death Draws Near

The Things We Knew

The Things We Knew

On 7/17 amandainpa wrote: This book had mystery and romance as well as some coming of age aspects to it. Set on Nantucket, the story centers around a family with secrets and some skeletons that are coming out of the closet.

There Will Be Stars

There Will Be Stars

On 7/3 amandainpa wrote: I wasn’t sure if I would like this book because the plot seemed a bit “out there”…the parallel world or alternate heaven story line isn’t something I’ve read much about and haven’t had much interest in. But this book was impossible for me to put down. This was a very deep story that delves ... There Will Be Stars by Billy Coffey Review

Remember To Forget, Revised And Expanded Edition

Remember To Forget, Revised And Expanded Edition

On 4/30 amandainpa wrote: This book was sweet. One thing that makes it unique is the fact that it is told in a first person narrative by Levi, a male, and Delilah. I haven’t read many books that are narrated from a male perspective, so I enjoyed that. I really disliked Levi for the first half of the book. He has selective mutism, ...

The Feathered Bone

On 3/22 amandainpa wrote: I generally am not the type of person who cries when reading a book. It’s rare for me to feel a deep connection with a character, so deep that I have a physical response to what they are experiencing. This book caused me to gasp, cry, and feel sickness in my stomach. The story is a beautiful, gritty ... The Feathered Bone by Julie Cantrell
