Summer Reads- book reviews

It’s been a long time since I’ve blogged (about much of anything), so here’s a few
books I’ve enjoyed.

This little ebook provides lots of practical ideas, info and links.
It points out the sneaky marketing schemes that are used against us,
gives reasonable advice about couponing (not craziness), talks about
stockpiling your pantry (the smart way, not the hoarding way), and
lots of other useful things.  Links  and recipes are included.

Although this isn’t all brand new info to me, it was inspiring and
I’ve referred to the info & links several times in since reading it.
I gave it a 4 of 5 stars on my Good Reads account.

Biblical fiction grabs my attention so quickly!
This book takes place right after Jesus returns
to Heaven. The character’s are believable and
begin a search for the truth about Jesus.  It is
a great reminder of how crazy Christianity can
sound to those who haven’t yet met Jesus personally.
It’s the first of a series and I’ve ordered the next book
to read on our vacation.  I gave it 5/5 stars!

MICHAL is part of a series about the wives of King David.
Although this isn’t my favorite Biblical novel about David,
I did really enjoy learning more about the history of ancient
kings, wives and palace life. Authors like Smith do so much
research into history, geography and Biblical details, that
when I read the real stories in the Bible I have a bit more
understanding as well as reminders that these people are not
Biblical “characters” but REAL people… like us!
I rated this 4/5 stars and have ordered another book in
this series… Abigail.

Perhaps later this week I’ll tell you about a series that is in my
VERY top favorite of all time!!!!
