Release Date: January 10, 2017

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

ISBN:  9780718083809

Genre: Suspense / Romance / Contemporary / Gothic

Colleen Coble is one of those authors that I don’t have to know what the story is going to be about because her books are usually superb. Because You’re Mine is quite different from the author’s other books. Although I did find myself enjoying this, this wasn’t my favorite. Read the rest of this entry

Be sure to check out my review for the previous book, The Golden Braid.

Fairy tale retellings are popular right now. I love these retellings, especially those written by Melanie Dickerson. Most of us know the tale of The Little Mermaid, but you’ve never heard it told this way before. Oh and not to mention that this is a world that is all human and magic doesn’t exist set in Medieval Times. Read the rest of this entry

Isabel Creston never dared to dream that love could be hers. Now, at the edge of a forest filled with dark secrets, she faces a fateful choice between love and duty.

It’s Not What You Think by Jefferson Bethke

Release Date: October 13, 2015

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

ISBN-10: 1400205417

ISBN-13: 978-1400205417

Genre: RELIGION / Christian Life / Spiritual Growth

The title is perfect when it comes to describing Jefferson Bethke’s book. It’s Not What You Think! Most of us have heard of the Gospel, but how many of us actually understand what it is and what it means? The Gospel is so much more than just a transaction between us and Jesus Christ. Jesus didn’t just die on the Cross so that we can go to heaven when we die.

Bethke guides his readers from the creation of the universe in Genesis to the celebration in Revelation. When we learn to examine the Bible from the beginning, we see a story so much more beautiful and compelling than how many Christians are telling it today. This was definitely my favorite part that he focused on. When it comes to the Bible, we can’t just take bits and pieces that we like. We need both the New and Old Testament because it shows us the whole story.

Most of us are familiar with the fairy tale of Rapunzel. Melanie Dickerson brings the fairy tale to life with a fresh and unique plot. Unlike most retellings, there is no magic or evil powers. We are only dealing with a woman who is twisted and wicked by her past and therefore tries to do it to others.

Seventeen-year-old Rapunzel lives with her mother, Gothel, in medieval Hagenheim. She can throw a knife, paint beautiful flowers and vines, sing beautifully, but there are two things that she’s afraid that her mother will never allow her to do. That is to learn to read and to marry. In fact, every time a man shows interest in Rapunzel, Gothel makes them pack up and move to another place.
