Show Us Your Books — September ’17

September 12, 2017

Man! Has life been crazy busy or what? I had so much going on in August and now I feel like things are about to slow down just a little bit. I’ve got a few new books to get reading and some that I’ve been wanting to read for a really long time, now. Let’s take a look!


Couldn’t Stop Reading

Love on Pointe by Tiffany Odekirk — I reaaaalllyyy super loved this book. It’s LDS Young Adult Fiction and I TOTALLY love that. It was perfect in every way. I loved every word. I ate it up in 2 days. I la la la la la love Emmy and Rhys. How they meet is kind of ironic. Not in a negative way. But it’s cute. I wish there were going to be sequels! Definitely can’t wait to read more by this author! *Clean/healthy romance, paperback/library checkout


Fine Reads

Show Us Your Books — September '17 by Built Upon the Rock

Back to the Heart by Sky Corgan — I’m giving 4 stars because of the insane shocking twist to the story almost at the end and I just couldn’t handle it. You’ll have to read the entire thing to find our for yourself!! *Sexual scenes/content, eBook/Amazon purchase

Cultivate by Lara Casey — This book was a fine read. It wasn’t a terrible read, just not what I hoped it would be. Her first book was incredible! I had high hopes for this one, and while I did high light some things she said, I wasn’t completely impressed. I sort of felt like she repeated the same concept over and over, just in a different way. Don’t get me wrong, LOVE Lara, just not as impressed with this book. eBook in exchange for honest review


Did Not Finish/Still Reading

 

None currently on the list.


NEW READS!

Show Us Your Books — September '17 by Built Upon the Rock

One by One by David A. Bednar — I’m excited to read this one. I had a bad attitude about it when I got to chapter 2 so I’m going to start over and try to keep my mind open while I read it. This is a new book by Elder David A. Bednar. I really like him as a speaker, he’s great! hardcover, free copy in exchange for review

Cheers to Eternity by Ben and Al Carraway — I read Al’s first book, More Than the Tattooed Mormon, and I suuuuuper loved it! This is her second book and her husband wrote it with her! I have no idea what it will be like but I’m excited to find out! eBook, free copy in exchange for review

Embracing the Broken by Tiffany Webster — If you haven’t watched Tiffany’s Hope Works speech, you need to do that now! It’s amazing and I’ve been following Tiffany ever since. I was super excited to join her community in preparation for the release of this new book she’s written! I’m super excited to read it! paperback, free copy in exchange for review

    I’m always really interested in YA books and Love On Pointe sounds super cute. Plus it’s nice to hear about a book that’s clean too!

    I’m not LDS, but Love on Pointe sounds really cute and I can’t help but love a punny title. Sounds like a fun one when I need something quick. I have heard great things about Lara Casey’s books :) XO – Alexandra

    Ashley,

    Thank you so much for reviewing Love on Pointe. I’m so sorry that this is my first time seeing this lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, and good news there will be stand alone sequels. Evie’s book is next and tentatively slated to come out late summer 2018.

    Thanks again! With love,

    Tiffany Odekirk 💗
