I love reading, Christian, Biographies, Autobiographies, Cookbooks, Fiction, Historical Fiction, History, Memoir, Mystery, Romance, Suspense, Thriller, Parenting, Marriage, Christian Counseling, Health, Natural and Herbal, Childcare and Teaching, Inspirational as well as Alaskan.

I prefer a printed copy that I can hold in my hands and become old friends with, but will also accept E-books in Kindle, PDF or Nook formats.

I am a Christian and seek to glorify my Lord. As such I will not read any erotic, paranormal, vampire, or such books. I also will stop reading any book that has bad language (Cursing and taking my Lord’s name in vain.), and books with gratuitous sex. This is one reason I have chosen to be associated with the Publishing Companies and the Authors that are on my site because I feel safe recommending them to others.

CORRIDOR

CorridorCorridor by Robin Parrish
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a dream/si-fi style book that made me curious at first, then frustrated, then I got hooked on trying to figure out the puzzles of each room myself and figuring out the end and the "Point" of the CORRIDOR and was hooked.
Very imaginative and alive...very different than anything I have ever read...I would be curious if this could stay true to the book and be made into a movie???!!! Now THAT would be interesting!

The Pastor's Wife

The Pastor's WifeThe Pastor's Wife by Jennifer AlLee
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I have a hard time saying much about this book other than, "Meah" It is hard for me to read fluff an nonsense like this when I was raised by a Preacher's Wife.
And my Mom was and is the most loving, giving unselfish person I know! She does not think of her own self or her own pride. There is no me, me, me. No my, mine, I, with her. It is give till it hurts, keep giving till it bleeds and if they need or want more...keep giving of herself.
So to me this woman was first very selfish, very ME oriented, not understanding of others...especially her new husband who had a huge load on his young shoulders and a lot to learn.

Courageous!!!

CourageousCourageous by Randy Alcorn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a very rare case where I watched the movie before I was able to get my hands on the book. Usually it is the other way around and I am very dissapointed in the movie because they just can't catch the essence and flavor of the book.
I was very pleased and pleasently surprised at how close the book and the movie are in this case. Especially compared to some that other than title and names are nothing at all like the book.
I was very pleased with this ebook and the BOOK has joined the movie on our family "to get" list!
I whole heartedly recommend this book in any form you can get it!

Pink - Melody Carson

Harsh Pink: Color Me Burned (TrueColors, #12)Harsh Pink: Color Me Burned by Melody Carlson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While not as graffic in details as Torch Red, This book is the ultimate in the bullies and mean girl club!! Some of the things these girls do and say to each other is UNBELIEVABLE!!
I would maybe let my daughter read this one when she is in her late teens. This book also cover's selfishness, class and status (rich vs poor), Popularity and peer pressure, and even rounds it out with underage drinking.
It also shows what happens when there is no family time and kids are expected and trusted to be ADULTS at 16 and 17.

Red - Melody Carlson's Color Series

Torch Red: Color Me Torn (TrueColors, #3)Torch Red: Color Me Torn by Melody Carlson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This series is written to and for teen girls...I am 44 years old and have an 18yr old son and a 13 year old daughter. There is a time and a place for everything. This book was good as an "open your eyes even more, watch closer and be more careful with your kids" book.
But would I let my teen read this?? Not on your life!!! The subject matter is sex, STD's, abortion's, rape, under age drinking.....and the terms and vivid descriptions made me blush!!
I think personally that the information is something as a parent I need to be aware of. But I need to continue to talk to my kids on a one on one basis as they are ready and comfortable doing so. In talking openly from the first and not shutting them down but always willing to answer any question (in an age apropriate way...never "when you are older", if they are asking, then they need an answer even if it is a simple one for their age level. Then they will feel comfortable coming back because they know you will always listen, always tell the truth and always answer their questions.
So while the book was well written I feel it should have been marketed towards parents as a learning and warning tool. Not teens.
