Honest Review of “The Time Keeper” by Mitch Albom

Just finished “The Time Keeper” by Mitch Albom. It had a really good lesson behind the book of appreciating time and the people around you. However, the way the three characters’ stories were entwined made it harder to follow. And the ending was somewhat of a letdown because there wasn’t as much to the ending as I would have hoped.

Read it for yourself to see what you think because like I said it did have a good lesson behind it.

Book Review of “All Manner of Things”

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book, “All Manner of Things” by Susie Finkbeiner, in order to give an honest review of the book.

In the book “All Manner of Things” by Susie Finkbeiner, you are transported back to the time of the Vietnam war.  This is my first book I have read by Susie Finkbeiner and it will definitely not be my last.  Even though this book is a work of fiction with some historical elements to it, this could really have happened to some family back during this time.  I have found myself feeling how the characters feel during certain events that happen in the book.  I can relate to the main character’s love of books and her uncertainty about what she should do in certain situations.  Overall, I would highly recommend this book.

Book Review of Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book in order to give an unbiased honest review.

Wooing Cadie McCaffrey by Bethany Turner was a refreshing Christian romance novel. I was completely able to relate to the female main character, Cadie McCaffrey. The things that she struggled with as a female as well as a Christian were things that I think a lot of young Christian women struggle with. I also really liked the creative chapter names that helped tell the story. I definitely want to go back and read her first novel, The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck. For anyone that wants to read a book that is different than other Christian romance novels, then this is a good book for you.

Book Review of Living Lies by Natalie Walters

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in order to write an honest review of this book.

Living Lies by Natalie Walters is a well written novel with a complex plot. For readers who are drawn into a good mystery with a touch of romance woven in, this novel will not leave you disappointed. At times, I found myself reflecting back in order to connect the pieces. Some parts of the book seem to be disconnected; however, as you continue to read and the “lies” unfold, it will make perfect sense.  I am definitely going add this author to my list of authors I like to read.
