Crater

Crater

On 6/28 ALotofLoves wrote: Crater (A Helium-3 Novel) starts out as a plodding sci-fi novel, and then turns into a half-baked-though-quasi-interesting-adventure story and I found myself debating what that meant in terms of my review. Did I like it? Yes. Some if it. But I also found myself tortured by the snail pace of the first ... Crater (A Helium-3 Novel): Book Review

Invasion

Invasion

On 1/15 ALotofLoves wrote: I've become quite a fan of young adult literature lately. The fast-pace of most of the stories in this genre are appealing to me. Invasion (A C.H.A.O.S.) was not quite as gripping as I had hoped, but it was still a fun read. The character development of Colt, the main character, was a little lacking, ... Invasion (A C.H.A.O.S.)

The King's Christmas List

The King's Christmas List

On 10/1 ALotofLoves wrote: I am always interested to hear what my kids have to say about the stories I receive for review, and this time was no different. I read The King's Christmas List to the kids as soon as we received the book. My two-year-old daughter is a little young to listen to the entire story, however she loves the ...

Same Kind of Different As Me

Same Kind of Different As Me

On 8/28 ALotofLoves wrote: The life story of Denver, the modern day slave and homeless man, was fascinating, infuriating, and heartbreaking. I could have read much more about his life. Ron's life story, while interesting enough, was no where near as compelling as Denver. Not only was Denver's life story so far removed from my ...

Beyond Opinion

Beyond Opinion

On 7/20 ALotofLoves wrote: Beyond Opinion: Living the Faith We Defend is not a book one can sit down and read idly - at least I couldn't. To me reading each chapter was similar in tone to reading a university level essay and required a quiet environment to contemplate the message. This doesn't mean that I don't think the book ...

I Am Hutterite

I Am Hutterite

On 6/10 ALotofLoves wrote: I found the information in the book fascinating. Alas, I also found the writing style jerky, and not entirely engaging. Hutterites speak a form of German. The author chose to input German phraseology into at least one paragraph on almost every single page of the book. In my opinion, a handful of German ... I am Hutterite by Mary-Ann Kirkby

Never Let You Go

Never Let You Go

On 5/3 ALotofLoves wrote: It's been years since I read Christian fiction. I honestly didn't expect to enjoy it but I definitely did. It was a gripping read! It was intense, mysterious, and filled with spooky themes. I wasn't sure what was going to happen from one page to the next. The story wasn't the touchy-feely story I was ...

Why You Say It

Why You Say It

On 4/6 ALotofLoves wrote: Why You Say It by Webb Garrison reveals the reason and the back story of more than 600 commonly used words and phrases in the English language. The book is broken into sections, such as Entertainment, Business, Food, for easy reference. There is also a full index of the phrases in the back of the book. ...

66 Love Letters

66 Love Letters

On 3/3 ALotofLoves wrote: In the prologue of this book, Dr. Crabb explains that he doesn't intend this book to be read in a similar manner as a novel. He actually suggests reading one chapter a week, and then spending the rest of the week reflecting on the message. I'm glad that Dr. Crabb wrote that in his prologue, because ... 66 Love Letters by Dr. Larry Crabb: Book Review
