Cute, sweet, Christmas romance to read surrounded by my (fake) fireplace and Christmas decorations. I‘m a little nutty about Christmas, much like the main character 🤪🎄

That moment when you‘re reading a book and you realize that it connects to another book that you haven‘t read yet 😬 I skipped a couple of paragraphs 😏😊. This book connects to a novella called The Bridge, also by Kingsbury. #notodayspoilers #nicetrykaren

Stepping Heavenward | Elizabeth Prentiss

So far, it shows how great our sin is... no matter how big or small. And I love the main character. She‘s so realistic and flawed, but she‘s also very aware of her imperfections ❤️😊

The Tutor's Daughter | Julie Klassen

The main character in this book deals with a journal thief in a large manor full of people she has dished about in her journal 😳😱 I am cringing so hard.

It‘s official... I‘m obsessed with #regencyreads. This one definitely has a Jane Eyre vibe! Lots of gothic inspired themes.

Snuggling up with this read today 👠🧣💃❤️ I would definitely recommend this if you are a fan of C.S Lewis (and maybe secretly wanted to be his pen pal in the 50‘s).

Redeeming Love: A Novel | Francine Rivers

This was a great book! It was a bit lengthy and some parts seemed a bit tedious, but I loved it overall. It had some content that younger readers probably wouldn‘t be ready for. But I love the overall theme of redemption and forgiveness.

Love Story: A Novel | Karen Kingsbury
Pickpick

Although I felt a little disconnected from some of the characters because this book was part of a pretty lengthy series that I haven‘t read, I really enjoyed it. It deals with the subject(s) of remarriage after the loss of a spouse, and finding the courage to love someone who has hurt you. Karen Kingsbury is def the queen of Christian fiction! Read it y‘all!

I was so close to the end when I decided to stop reading 😔 But I felt like the book was never going to end. Doerr is an incredibly poetic and metaphorical author, and while I thought the book was beautiful, I found myself craving a faster and more concise storyline (hence the fast paced thriller I picked up). Great characters, beautiful imagery, just be sure you‘re ready to muddle through some lengthy prose.

Predator | Terri Blackstock

It‘s not as suspenseful as I thought it would be, but I‘m okay with that! I love the fact that this books brings up the issue of privacy and social media. It makes it clear that we need to be careful about how much of ourselves we put on the internet.

😭I feel like this quote perfectly represents the central dilemma of the novel: why keep beautiful things if they will only be destroyed by things beyond your control? Why dream up a beautiful life when reality is starkly different and difficult? Hopefully Doerr will provide some hope-filled answers as the novel goes on.

Not as much of a page turner as I thought it would be. The Tribulation Force was spilt up through the majority of the novel. It‘s an extremely political and slow moving book. But there were elements that I enjoyed! Buck and Chloe‘s romance was fun, and I think the characterization of the Antichrist is well done. It‘s interesting to see his true colors seep through his facade. But I‘m definitely going to continue the series. On to the next one!

The ending is well worth the read! Although I didn‘t exactly agree with all of the doctrine, I enjoyed the plot of this book immensely. It‘s very fast paced, and there are a couple of surprises. I didn‘t expect Buck to end up with Chloe (though I‘m glad he did because Hattie got on my nerves) and I didn‘t quite expect to get a display of Nicolae‘s evil until a little later on. But the scene at the UN and Bucks conversion is one of the best!

Left Behind: A Novel of the Earth's Last Days | Tim LaHaye, Jerry B. Jenkins

Something I find extremely interesting about this book is the insight it gives into the process of journalism; making a main character a member of the press was definitely a smart move when writing about a cataclysmic event! Even if he isn‘t completely realistic, Cameron “Buck” Williams is definitely my favorite character in this novel! #journalism #getthescoop

I just have to say that I absolutely love the hilarious fake name of the POTUS in this series... it just made me giggle. Gerald Fitzhugh... I guess LaHaye and Jenkins thought this name sounded presidential? #imaginarypresidents #votefitz

Just wanted to share my extremely battered (or, as we say at work “well loved”) copy of my childhood favorite. It‘s a wonderful adventure tale that tackles the issues of self-acceptance, identity, adoption and family. I absolutely love the heroine, who in my opinion is more brave and self-assured than half of the leading ladies in YA novels today. #childhoodfavorite #leadingladies

I just received this entire series from my Grandparents. I‘m about 100 pages in and I really like it so far. It‘s interesting to read because it was written in 95‘ and I find that, in retrospect, the story may have been slightly different if it was written ten years later. I‘m also a Christian, so I can appreciate any literature that represents my faith. #christianlit #rapture

Laura317 I started these in the late 90‘s. I think 4 had been written. They certainly made an impact on a lot of people - me included. 7mo
DebReads4fun I have read and enjoyed the entire series. Welcome to Litsy! (edited) 2mo
