Perennials {Review}

December 22, 2017
Perennials (ebook)

Before you assume this is a book about gardening, let me assure you it is a wonderful novel by Julie Cantrell. I had heard her name before, but this was the first book I have read by her. Is it ok to admit that I picked it because I like flowers and the cover was pretty? Well, I did!

So, when I first started it I was a little worried. I am a pretty basic type of gal, and the book was very descriptive, giving you lots of details, but at the beginning I was side tracked by all the extra words. Let me assure you that the feeling did not last for long. The story pulled me in very quickly! I was impressed with the amount of research she must have undertaken to know as much about flowers as was shared in this story, and mind you the flowers were a backdrop to a very sweet story.

The ending was predictable, but it did not claim to be a good suspense novel. If you are looking to be swept away by a good, heart warming story, and learn a little about gardening along the way, I would recommend this book,

I received a copy of this book to review from All opinions are 100% mine.

Fire on the Track {Review}

December 8, 2017
Image result for fire on the track

I get so geeked out with true stories so when I came across Fire on the Track, I could not wait to learn about the first women Olympians, in particular those that entered track and field events. The author, Roseanne Montillo, did such a good job of letting us into the lives of these ladies, giving such details of events and surroundings that you felt like it happened yesterday, not in the 1920's. The book covers 3 Summer Olympics and the ladies that participated. If you like to learn about hi...

How to Fix a Broken Record {Review}

November 27, 2017
How to Fix a Broken Record

To tell the truth, I decided to read this book because the title caught my attention. I loved the idea of having an inspiration book that could also be fun! I had not heard of Amena Brown before, but this is not her first book. How to Fix a Broken Record was such an amazing read! Amena is so honest in sharing her life with us and then connecting the dots and allowing these things to be life lessons, not just for her, but for us too!

If you love music and could use a little inspiration, I would...

Truth Doesn't Have a Side

November 3, 2017
Truth Doesn't Have a Side

This is not the type of book I normally read, and I still cannot say why I chose it, but I am so glad I did! Truth Doesn't Have a Side is the story of Dr. Bennet Omalu. He is the doctor who first discovered CTE in NFL players. What I love about the book is that it does not start off with stats and science, but instead we get to know Dr. Omalu. How we grew up in Nigeria, how he got to be a doctor in the U.S. We get to learn more about his personality and then he introduces us to the faithful d...

In the Middle of The Mess {Review}

October 24, 2017
Product Details
I was so thrilled to see that Sheila Walsh had a new book. I have seen her speak a few times at Women of Faith conferences in the past and always find her relevant and so open and honest. 

In her latest book In the Middle of the Mess, she shares with the readers her journey after the death of her mother. She has a way of being able to tell her story but have it be used to help others. I so enjoyed the inspiration I found in her words and the bible versus she chose to share. 

This book will be r...

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 li...

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}

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...
