On 2/23 My, Like, Super Deep Thoughts wrote: I have loved other books by Beth Webb Hart (Sunrise on the Battery and Love, Charleston) and during the months I read it, enjoyed her contributions to Southern Belle View.

The Trouble With Cowboys

The Trouble With Cowboys

On 1/15 My, Like, Super Deep Thoughts wrote: Annie Wilkerson doesn't trust many people, especially not anyone in a pair of cowboy boots with a propensity for leaving. She learned from her mother that not many men would stay, but particularly not cowboys. Dylan is a cowboy and although he makes her heart speed up, he's out of the question. But when ... Light-hearted, funny, quick read (The Trouble with Cowboys - Denise Hunter)

The Scent of Rain

On 9/8 My, Like, Super Deep Thoughts wrote: My first introduction into the Christian “chick lit” genre was Kristin Billerbeck’s Ashley Stockingdale series. I laughed so hard. I was challenged deeper in my faith. I was so thankful for both the shallow cheesiness and the depth in her writing. Billerbeck’s contribution to Christian chick ... Not my favorite (Kristin Billerbeck - The Scent of Rain)

Bittersweet Surrender

On 3/7 My, Like, Super Deep Thoughts wrote: I have previously enjoyed work by Diann Hunt (Be Sweet was a funny, entertaining read) so I was expecting I’d enjoy her latest (well, newly published as an e-book, originally published in 2008 as hard copy) novel Bittersweet Surrender. I did, to some extent enjoy it; however, I did have some issues ... Not such a sweet read

First Date

On 1/27 My, Like, Super Deep Thoughts wrote: I love YA fiction. Always have, always will. Krista McGee’s new novel First Date was hilarious and charming, everything true YA aspires to be.

My grandmother-in-law teased me as I read because every few pages I would giggle, or I would sigh, or I would “mmmhmm” in agreement. Weber’s memoir is well-written (as one would expect ...
