Composing Amelia


(This book deals with depression and marital communication issues…I could not put it down once I started! Alison Strobel is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine.)

A Family of Their Own


(I really enjoyed the twist this story had, dealing with children with illnesses. It was an engaging story!)

Yuletide Hearts


(This was a super quick read, but I felt like I grazed the surface of the characters. There were certain aspects of the story I would have liked more if the author had expanded a little.)

90 Minutes In Heaven


(I expected this book to be more like Colton Burpo’s book… but only the first fourth of the book focused on Don’s trip to Heaven. The majority of the book chronicled his recovery- not a bad story, but just different than I was thinking it would be.)

Game of Love


(I probably would have rated this one 5/5 but the epilogue was so incredibly cheesy and unrealistic that I downgraded it. Sad smile The story itself was interesting and entertaining.)

Code Blue


(It was fun to get back into the medical genre and see some characters from Richard Mabry’s later books. I haven’t had time to sit and read a book in one day in a month. Thank you Christmas break!)

The Forest Ranger’s Husband


(This book had tears running down my face multiple times, and that’s hard to do. The author has a unique way of writing and drawing the reader’s heart into the story. It was fantastic!)

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me


(As a long time “The Office” fan, this book was fun to read. I really enjoyed learning more about Mindy’s early life and how she came into acting.)

Sing You Home


(I enjoy the majority of Jodi Picoult’s books. This one was harder for me to get into due the topic, but Jodi is known for writing on controversial topics!)

Lonestar Angel


(The first half of this book was a little hard to get into, but at the same time I wanted to know what happened! Once I got about halfway I couldn’t stop reading.)

Attracted to Fire


(It took me a while to get into this book because I was distracted by family members but once I got about halfway I couldn’t stop!)

Seriously, I’m Kidding


(Parts of this book had me absolutely laughing out loud—but I also found a couple of the chapters kind of “blah”)

Love Finds You in Sunset Beach, Hawaii


(Robin Jones Gunn has been one of my favorite authors for over 10 years. I grew up reading the Christy Miller series, so this book completing the story of Sierra Jensen was awesome. I blew through it- a favorite author comes through again.

**I received a free copy of this book though the publisher for review. I was not paid, just asked to give my honest opinion on the book.**

Where You Left Me


(This book took me a couple of weeks to read. Due to it’s delicate subject, I read a chapter or two at a time. It was wonderfully written!)

Halfway To Each Other


(Sometimes, the best books I read are ones that I randomly leaf through and grab off a library shelf. This is true in the case of this book. I'm not sure if it's because of my adventurous traits or my experiences visiting many of the places the author speaks of, but I loved this book!)

Fly, Colton, Fly


(I remember hearing various news stories about Colton. This was a random library pick-up book as well, and the beginning of it was very interesting!)

Happy Chaos


(Although I usually enjoy biographies and stories by actors, I just couldn't get into this one)

Life In Spite of Me


(Perhaps because I could relate to the author, I flew through this book literally in one afternoon while in between jobs. It was a fast read and made me think back to times when I've been depressed and quietly contemplating suicide myself)

Love Times Three


(Clearly, their way of life is the complete opposite of mine, but their story was honest and true, entertaining!)
