A Season of Love: A Christmas Anthology

November 1, 2017

I really, really loved this book! The cutest short stories about love and happiness. This is literally my kind of book, short and sweet :) I love romance novels, especially when they are clean novels. Probably why I really like reading Young Adult books too! Mary and Jo’s story is probably my favorite so far. There’s just something about service, genuine love, and a happy ending that makes my heart melt. Okay, but I also REALLY love Mary Ann and Thomas’ love story. Something about it was just soooo perfect. Gosh. The service, genuine care, and amazing example really lifted my spirits! Loved Beth too, she’s such a cutie a pie. This story also really humbled me and made me realize that I can be grateful for anything!! I should express it often.

Carla Kelley is a really good writer and I’m so glad I had a chance to read and review this book of hers! I’m not familiar with English terms so I’m definitely going to have to keep researching what certain phrases or words mean. Either way, it was a fantastic book! If you are looking for something short, small, simple, and sweet, this is your kind of book! Get it now by clicking the link below!

Happy reading!

#collaboreads: A Brand New Book

September 26, 2017

The brand new book I chose to read this month is called Seek This Jesus by Neill Marriott. The cover surely caught my attention and I knew I had to read it for myself.

It’s phenomenal. It’s absolutely amazing! Neill shares so much of her life in this book. She shares the life she had while attending a Methodist church in the south, to feeling forgotten by God, to joining The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons). I just am in awe at her journey!

My favorite part of the book are pages 69 – 73. She shares the story of her daughter who passed away from getting hit by a car. But it’s the way she talks about staying connected to God, grieving and what each year felt like when it came to connecting with God and grieving her loss.

I think it left an impression on me, obviously because my dad passed away and I’m still grieving so bad. But I don’t think I’ve ever had someone describe grieving the way she does in those pages. The transitions and how each year passing is different but she grew closer to God each year.

I am just certain that everyone needs to own this book. I wouldn’t necessarily say anybody who isn’t LDS wouldn’t enjoy it, but it is centered around God, and Jesus Christ. Their love for us and a woman’s story. I give it 5 stars!

Currently Reading

September 21, 2017

I took a few pictures of some new books that I added to my currently-reading bookshelf. At work we have an “employee library,” where we can “check out” books and take them home for up to two weeks and then we have to bring them back so that someone else can have a turn reading that book. I’m absolutely in love with the idea, and so excited to squeeze in some more reading during my free time. These books are all pretty quick reads which are the perfect kind of books for me! Though I’m still trying to brave reading through Harry Potter #4. I’ve never read past book three so wish me luck!
