Evicted - Poverty And Profit in The American City {Review}

October 15, 2017
Image result for evicted

When I saw Evicted, I felt compelled to read it. The topic is one that intrigued me and I felt like I wanted to know more. I had never read a book that was piece of ethnography. I found the book very compelling and educational. To see the true struggles of people that have been evicted and how the system really makes it more difficult, rather than a help, was very eye opening. The next day at work we had a homeless lady come in and I found myself better able to relate to her plight, I felt like I could understand and sympathize more. I would not have felt the same prior to reading this book.

I would recommend this book to everyone. I feel it is our obligation to educate ourselves and understand others and their journey through life.

I was given a copy of this book from Blogging for Books. All opinions are 100% mine.
 

The Awakening of HK Derryberry (Review)

September 28, 2017
The Awakening of HK Derryberry: My Unlikely Friendship with the Boy Who Remembers Everything

I must admit, just from the title of this book, I was a little skeptical. What would it be like, what did they mean by awakening. Well, let me say this book is so heart warming and written with suck an ease. I loved getting to know HK and truly understand his awakening and what it meant. Learning more about the story of HK, a now young man who was born blind and with cerebral palsy, makes you think of people with disabilities in a new way.

I would recommend this book to everyone!

I was given a ...

A Time to Stand {Review}

September 23, 2017

Apparently Robert Whitlow is a pretty famous author, where have I been? I looked forward to reading A Time to Stand, as the topic is very current. A white police officer is accused of shooting a black teenager and is going to be put on trial for the shooting. In comes a local lawyer who hires a young, black women lawyer to help him with the case. Do I have your interest yet?

This book is so well written! I love the fact that it is a Christian book and most of the characters in the book use the...

Don't Settle for Safe {Review}

August 30, 2017



While I enjoyed the book, when I was done I realized that the author told a lot of stories about herself and then walked the reader through how to handle these situations or ones similar. For me, most of the stories were not something pertinent to me, so I finished the book not feeling like I gained a lot personally, kind of seemed like another self help book. 

I am sure there are many readers who could relate to her stories and would get more out of it.

I was given a copy of this book to revie...

Street of Eternal Happiness {Review}

August 26, 2017
Image result for street of eternal happiness

This is one of the best books I have read in a while, a must read! This is Rob Schmitz's first book and he did such a good job. The book centers around people who live or work on the Street of Eternal Happiness in Shanghai. He does an amazing job of letting us into their lives, current and past and paints such an amazing picture of them and the street itself.

I could not wait to pick it up each day after work and find out more about these interesting people. I would love for it to be made into...

Here and Gone {Review}

July 23, 2017
Image result for here and gone haylen beck
I normally do not read a lot of suspense (thriller) books, but thought I would change things up and choose to review Here and Gone by Haylen Beck. This is the first book I can remember actually be anxious reading! Early on in the book I actually thought about putting it down, afraid of what might come next. I would say that is the sign of a good thriller book! 

The story revolves around an abused wife who is escaping her husband with her two children. They get pulled over in the middle of nowh...

An Outlaw and a Lady {Review}

July 13, 2017

I love when I get so enthralled with a book that I do not want to put it down and such was the case with An Outlaw and a Lady: A memoir of music, life with Waylon. Jessi Colter is the wife of Waylon Jennings. I am not a country music fan, but I am a biography fan, and this autobiography is amazing! I loved learning about Jessi, her early years traveling with her mother, her first marriage and then meeting Waylon and the years and trials they had. I enjoyed her sharing lyrics to some of her so...

The Naturalist Theodore Roosevelt Review

June 29, 2017
Image result for the naturalist
I was in a history mood when I selected The Naturalist as the next book to read. I knew a little about Theodore Roosevelt, knew he helped start national parks, but this book really digs in his favorite past time, hunting, killing and preserving animals and it started at a young age. I loved learning more about this side of him and his many expeditions, including his well know trip to Africa after his presidency was over.

If you enjoy history, I would recommend this book.

I received a copy of th...

Loveable {review}

June 8, 2017


I have been following Dr. Flanagan's blog for about a year and was pleased to hear that he had written a book and made sure I had time to read it. I loved the concepts in the book - taking the time to really understand yourself, your own worth and I loved the notes to his children that he put in the book. Overall there are some great ideas, but implementing them in your life, I felt, lacked. Now that I know this information, what do I do with it. How do I walk forward with this knowledge. I a...

Disaster Falls - {Review}

April 28, 2017
Disaster Falls: A Family Story

I enjoy true stories, but this was the first time I was venturing into a true story about the death of a child, written by a father. Very heartbreaking story, but many lessons learned from reading the book. 

As a reader, I did find it hard to not get a little frustrated at the order in which the book was written. I am one that likes the facts up front and then the details. Mr. Gerson did not give us the details of the accident until after half way through the book, which actually made me put t...
