Breaking Free has become one of my favorite reads in all of Christian Fiction! Before I begin, it is important to mention that this is not a fun or light read. It’s emotionally gripping. If you’ve been or are going through this type of situation, you might have a tougher time reading this because it deals with some really tough issues. Due to this, it’s going to be tough to write this review.

Glimmer Girls Series by Natalie Grant (Plus a Giveaway!)

Standard

Ok ok. You’re right. I’m not a kid. You’re probably wondering why I’m reviewing these though. Well, these are written by Natalie Grant who just so happens to be one of my favorite singers. Plus, these books are so fun and cute that anyone will love them! In fact, I’m giving away a copy of both books in the series to one lucky winner! Stay tuned until the very end to learn more.

The Glimmer Girls are Maddie, Mia, and Lulu. Maddie and Lulu are 10-year-old  twins and Lulu is six. They travel across the country where they discover adventure, mystery, and mischief. Their mother, Gloria Glimmer, plays a similar role to Natalie Grant since she is a famous singer. The girls are smart and sassy but they learn about many lessons along the way. These lessons include being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole more. God is also a huge impact in these stories.

Also, a fun part of this series is that you don’t have to read them in order to know what’s going on. You won’t be confused if you read them out of order because each book takes place in a different country or state. Read the rest of this entry

I am super excited to be able to talk about this particular book. I don’t really watch Duck Dynasty, but I do love what they stand for. It was really neat to read Jep and Jessica’s story, especially since they are the least known about in the family, having only appeared on the show since season four. Readers will love this read because it’s as if you are in one of their backyard bonfires and they’re personal friends.
