I loved this book because it covered some of those "uncomfortable" questions and situations that a young girl faces growing up. While you can't believe everything you read in a book, I think Ms. Blume did an excellent job covering this information. I didn't feel ashamed to talk to my mom about "growing up" after reading this book, because I felt that I already knew about it. I gave this book to my teenage daughters to read so they could get some of their questions answered without having to come ask an adult. This isn't always comfortable to all teenagers!!
The remainder of the book was also very interesting and I enjoyed reading of how these teen girls were dealing with growing up and perserving their friendships. (less)

I first learned of this book when I was at a conference that was presented by Chad Foster. This is a very easy book to read and has practical information for anyone, although the focus is on teens.
I use portions of this book to teach my high school students some tips for surviving past high school. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Also if anyone is looking for an awesome motivational speaker, Chad Foster is one I would recommend. I did not get paid to say that nor does he have a clue who I am!!(less)

Ann Rinaldi writes historical fiction books and this one happens to be about the events that took place at Andersonville. I wanted to read this book because my husband is in the movie. Once I saw the movie, I was inspired to read books about the events that took place there. This is definately a keeper on my bookshelf!(less)

I was fortunate enough to get this one where Horrid Henry tricks the tooth fairy, ruins a wedding, deals with Moody Margaret, and tries to run off his new teacher. I read this book out loud to my DS age 5, and DD age 3. They both really enjoyed it. DS says his favorite story was about the tooth fairy. Ironic since he is about to lose his first tooth!
While some may not appreciate this book because of Henry's antics, it is very funny and does have an underlying lesson. It is recommended for ages 7-10 but any aged person can enjoy this book. This is one I'll definitely keep to re-read to my children and then they can read it when they are a bit older.

At times I had to force myself to finish (I hate leaving things undone) and at other times I had to force myself to put it down.
This is a story about a detective named Archie and a seriel killer named Gretchen. The story line is very "Silence of the Lambs" like, only with a female terrorist. The characters are well developed and for her first book, I think Ms. Cain did a good job. My only recommendation for her is to write the book without all the foul language!
I thought I had "figured this book out" several times but was wrong everytime. I tried to get into the mind of Gretchen while reading this, because her knowledge of the medical field interested me. She is very skilled (or unskilled, depending on how you look at it) for a nurse her age.
The ending was a bit unexpected too but I won't tell you about that. You just have to read the book!(less)

Maybe it's because I'm a nurse and he tends to write stories referencing health conditions, I don't know.
I found this book very enjoyable! I initially started out reading it to my students (a book choice of their request) and I'm glad that I finished it in the privacy of my own home. I don't know that I can finish reading it to them because I get very emotional.
Travis and Gabby have a love-hate relationship in the beginning. Travis loved Gabby from the moment he laid eyes on her and Gabby hated his guts because she thought his dog had knocked up her dog. They spend time together as neighbors getting to know each other, after Gabby realizes he saved her dog's life, but the time is strained for Gabby because of Kevin. Needless to say, Kevin isn't a picture in the book long after Gabby realizes that she deserves better. From that point on, Gabby and Travis have the kind of relationship that every girl dreams of. They have a wonderful life together with 2 beautiful girls...until one night when there is a terrible accident.
Travis never leaves Gabby's side. He has a very important choice to make. You decide, by reading this book, if he made the right one or not!(less)

This is the fifth book in Melissa Mayhue's Daughters of Glen series. I have not read any of her other books and I didn't feel like I was missing anything by reading this one. Looking back at some other reviews, some of the characters appear in earlier books but never in "main character form".
Destiny needs help finding her sister and this tall, beautiful man falls into her lap, or rather she onto the back of his motorcycle. Her world is a whirlwind of travels and learning more about her rescuer, Jesse. He's a Guardian Fae who knows that the people behind Leah's disappearance are bad news.
This book has some of the most beautiful descriptive scenery. I wish I could find a portal and escape there right now...with Jesse of course! This is a paranormal, highlander romance full of fae and vamps. What could possibly go wrong with these two mystical groups working their own magics in the world?!
Moreover, will Destiny ever see Leah again? Will Jesse break a company policy? Read this great book for a wonderful adventure of mystical love and devotion.
You might want to be aware that there are a couple of "racy" romance scenes (sex included) and the language is fairly strong at times.

This book is about several characters, all of whom are looking for change in their life. They don't all understand why or how at first, but eventually it all comes to light.
Randall is such a caring individual. He is always cheery and helpful no matter what his lot in life is. He is someone most people either naturally gravitate towards or completely ignore. I need more Randall's in my life!! He shares something most precious to others he works with and the outcome may surprise you.
Christianity takes a lot of muscle, and sometimes the shovel, but in the end, it will be well worth it!
I don't want to give much of this book away because it's one that, once you start it, you won't be able to put it down. I highly recommend this book for EVERYONE and I hope you take some time to read it!(less)

Dr. Cathy Sewell (you might remember her from the first book in this series, Code Blue) is very pregnant and in need of someone to keep her practice running while she's out on maternity leave. Can she find a reputable doctor to handle her practice in Dainger, TX?
I do believe this is my favorite Richard L. Mabry book to date! It is fast-paced, intense, full of suspense and mystery and will keep you on the edge of your seat! I'm a little sad that this series is ending with this book. I look forward to more great works from Dr. Mabry! He has a way with words that put you right there at the scene. I could smell the hospital smells, hear the beeps, buzzes, and whistles, and the excitement that occurs in an ICU setting. Some of those could be my nursing background but I truly believe in this story. The intensity of it keep the story moving very quickly and I read it in no time at all! The characters are believable and Elena's story just about ripped my heart out!
I highly recommend this book to lovers of medical mysteries! I do not believe you would be disappointed in this series, Prescription for Trouble!
I acquired this book on NetGalley. I appreciate the publisher for providing it for review! (less)
The first creatures to seek me were the insects; my parents cleaned the bassinet free of dead ants the morning after they brought me home from the hospital. My first word was “dead.”
At age four, when I stepped out of bed and popped a giant toad like a water balloon, I never again turned any lights off.
For all of my sixth year, I slept sitting up thinking I’d spot the dying coming toward me.
There were times when it felt like my insides were full of broken glass, times when the souls of the animals passing through me felt too big, too much. I’d open my eyes in the morning and peer into the glassy gaze of a mouse on my pillow. Death never became my comfortable companion.
With a book opening like that, how can this NOT be a good book to read?!?!? I was captivated from those opening lines and finished the book in record time. If you would like to read more of Meridian, please click here and you can read the prologue and first three chapters. I'm warning you though, be prepared to go and get it as soon as you do!
Meridian is a young girl with a very eccentric life. Things die around her. All. The. Time. It doesn't happen to anyone else though and she's concerned. The day of her 16th birthday changed her life forever. Her parents warn her to come straight home from school. What will happen if she doesn't? Should she even take the chance and find out? Why won't her parents give her more information? She already senses she's a freak and out of the norm and now her parents are "wigging her out".
Meridian finds herself on a bus to go see her Aunt. She's always enjoyed spending time with her and felt a special kinship with her. They are more alike than Meridian would have ever cared to guess. Then, there's Tens, her aunt's caretaker. Meridian seems to take a liking to him fairly quickly but he isn't so eager to return the sentiment.
This book is full of the adventures of our young Meridian and her half angel life. Along the way she meets some interesting folks who help to shape her into the young lady she becomes.

I had the hardest time putting this one down! I first became aware of Mr. Garrison in December of 2010 when I read Hero's Tribute. I read it in six hours and this one was pretty much the same.
Legacy Road is a continuation of Wes's story. He's still dealing with all the emotions of delivering Michael's eulogy and now trying to settle down with the love of his life. There's a slight problem though...Emmy's going away for awhile. She's also got a huge secret that she hasn't shared with Wes yet.
Michael is consumed with his graduate studies and is being somewhat forced to spend more time with his dad because of it. Then, he learns of his mother's illness and it just seems that nothing will ever be the same again. Learning where his love is going for a year does not help matters either. It's not until he gathers up letters from a relative and starts to see historical connections that his life changes even more drastically. What lesson(s) is/are his professor trying to get him to see? Where will his relationship with Emmy be in a few days/months/years? How will he deal with the news his parents drop on him?
When Mr. Garrison asked me to review this book, I was ecstatic! I thoroughly enjoyed Hero's Tribute and this book wasn't a disappointment either. My ONLY request is that Mr. Garrison pick this story up where it ended and continue it!! His writing is clear and concise and you feel a part of the story. His characters are believable and have normal, everyday issues. I also enjoy learning more history of Georgia by reading his books. I have lived here for eleven years and still do not know a whole lot about Georgia and the historical events that took place. I hope to visit Allatoona sometime and see settings mentioned in this book.
If you enjoy a great story without a lot of fluff, this book is for you! It would be a great book for a teenager to read, but I do recommend reading Hero's Tribute first in order to get the full picture.
Many thanks to Mr. Garrison for providing a copy of this fantastic novel for me to read on my Kindle Fire! (less)

When you pick up this book to read (because everyone should!) you'd better settle in because you won't be able to put it down! Ronie Kendig has a way of grabbing her readers from the prologue and holding them prisoner until the last word is spoken!
I am surprised I let this one sit as long as I did, but then again, I am a student now and don't have much time for pleasure reading. Nothing like a beautiful Saturday and the flu to give you time to read!
I'm a bit of a sucker for a man in a cowboy hat and Colton (aka Cowboy) is the star of this sequel (check out Nightshade for the first book in the series). Colton, in the midst of having some horrible flashback from his days in Fallujah, is being called up to help disarm an Israeli nuclear crisis. He just thought he was out of the military!
Nightshade's men are supposed to be ones that can keep their heads in the game. After all, that's one of the reasons they were chosen. Enter Piper Blum...beautiful, smart, and has a magnet attracting Colton so fast his world is spinning. Can he keep it all together in midst of the drama?
I would say more about this book but it would give too much away! Ronie Kendig is one of my top 3 favorite writers and she has the number one suspense spot! Don't miss out on this great read full of suspense, adventure, and of course, love.

I must let you know that I have never read Jane Eyre (gasp!) and this is the second book that I've read that has been a comparison to that one. I guess it's high time I read that book!
I just loved this story...from beginning to end! This is a fairly fast reading story about Jillian's transformation from foster child to nanny. She is hired by the esteemed Ethan Remington to care for his child Cadence. Ethan is a film producer who travels alot. Cadence is a ball full of 18 month energy!
Jillian is accepted as family from day one by everyone. She has many new experiences while caring for Cadence that she might not otherwise have had. She is very appreciative of the care that the Brooke family has provided her the previous 5 years.
Many things begin to change for the Remington's, Jillian included. Who is the mysterious "Woman in White"? Why are all of these strange things happening around them?
I loved the element of mystery to this book...just loved it! I can not compare this to Jane Eyre since I've not read it, but I found it very intriguing. I would love to be in Jillian's shoes for the majority of this book (If only we could pick and choose our life events out of a book!) I am still not sure how I feel about Ethan...I had a love/hate relationship with him throughout the book. Cadence stole my heart from the very beginning!
I recommend this read to anyone who enjoys Christian fiction with an element of mystery. This isn't an overly preachy book but there are a couple of chapters that seem a little heavier on the religious side than others. Nothing that should be offensive to the reader though!
Thank you to the publisher and Goodreads for providing my copy of this book that I won in the giveaway!! It is much appreciated!

Serenity has just been dumped by Michael because he can't stand her being in the limelight more than he. She moves on with her life, further builds her career, and when the chips start to fall, who's there for her? Why did the chips all anyway? Could it be that bridges burnt can haunt you?

This book focuses on the Pike Fish Market and how success can come in a variety of forms. Who wants to work in a smelly fish market??

I'll never know how Ted Dekker has accomplished this but I'm very excited about this book! This is my first read by Mr. Dekker and most certainly not my last! I love his writing style and how he has entertwined several books together. I may be mistaken but I'm thinking that the Lost History books play a part in the Circle series.
This is Book 0. You can read it first before reading Black or you can choose to read it last after reading White. Amazing eh?
Thomas is a leader who travels back and forth between a span of 2000 years. His clan is dying out due to a lack of faith in their god, Elyon. Thomas's son is a deserter and Thomas is married to the Quoron leader's daughter. What must be done to save the precious land from the Hordes and Eramites?
As mentioned, I've not read anything by Dekker before. I found it very hard to put this book down...after the first 15 chapters or so. The beginning I found to be very difficult to get into. There was something missing...maybe something in the Lost History books, I'm not sure. I was getting the impression that some of the characters where mentioned in other books. However, the characters are very well developed and once I really got into the story, I forgot what I didn't think I knew anymore.
There were many parallels between the Bible and the instances in this book. Thomas's clan "drowns" themselves in a river of blood...symbolic of a baptism of immersion. One dies to Christ and His blood covers them. I'm not sure how the vampire in the book fits into Biblical parallellism but it was a cool touch!
Would I recommend this book? You bet. Run out and buy it NOW! Whether you read it first or last, it's a great read. I might have to re-read it after reading the other books in this series. I've never read anything like it before! (less)

However, I was looking for a Christmas themed book (trying to STILL get into the spirit this year!) so I chose this one to read. It's a collection of short stories and news clippings of events that have occurred involving a Christmas themes. Only a couple of the stories were humorous in my opinion but I did learn where some of the typical traditions originated. Fans of the popular Bathroom Reader series would enjoy this book as it is very similar in nature.

Maybe it's because I didn't have the time to sit and really read it through once I got started, I don't know. I really wanted to like this one! There were so many parts that confused me and I jumbled all the characters up. I don't like going for long periods and stretching a book out but alas, grad school took priority. I also do not tend to restart books once I've already started. THAT being said, you may really enjoy this book. Many others have!
In this book you meet many interesting characters: Julian, Benjamin, Pierre, Henry, Niko, and Gustav to name a few. I really enjoyed the story of Niko and Gustav! There's seemed much more adventurous to me, while very scary at times too! Julian stuck me as wimpy and needy and Benjamin was extremely homesick. I didn't "get" these characters like I wanted. I do appreciate what happens with Henry in the end. I hope to hear more about that in the sequel (yes, I do want to read it even if this one didn't grab me!).
I cannot even begin to imagine how living during this time must have been for Jews. The nights probably did seem huge, dark, and never ending.
I'll be passing this book along in a future giveaway so be sure to check back often! I do think others will be able to have a finer appreciation of this book so please do not just take my word for it.

I enjoyed reading it during a conference when the topics did not interest me as much as the book did! I found it hard to put the book down at times because the stories were so captivating. In my opinion, the most memorable stories in the book are the following with a short review:
Requiem for Linny: I enjoyed this story because it reminded me of my grandmother a little bit. There are some things that people hang on to and have a hard time letting go. Reflecting back on this today, the story means a little more as a young man I know died in a drowning accident over the weekend. He's the second in my church in 3 days to drown. Puts a different spin on a story like this.
10:18-All I can say about this one is "WOW". If this one doesn't change your life....well, it SHOULD change your life!!
One Washington Diner: This one I read in the doctor's office this morning and needless to say, the tears in my eyes caused my doctor some concern when he finally came in my room. This was one of my favorites. It's a very sweet love story that had me reflecting back on my marriage and our relationship and how I might improve that.
Winter Rose: Another tear jerker...this is a MUST read. If you only read one story in this book, make it this one. In light of present world events it puts some things in perspective.
In the Name of Love: This is the only non-fiction story in this book. It's very personal and will strike a chord with anyone with a heart.
While these were my favorites, I don't want to take away anything from the other stories. They were all enjoyable and I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for some inspiration, a "feel good" story, or who is just looking for a quick read while at a conference, the doctor's office, or whereever else the world might take you.

Oliva isn't sure what she might have done to the man but she does know that she needs to get away quickly. She finds herself in even more trouble once she is on her way to a school for work. Will the drama ever end?
There are so many things I absolutely loved about The Silent Governess. The title is more than fitting and it had me intrigued from the beginning! I loved learning more about Parliament, Dukes, Earls, and most importantly, Governesses. I think had I lived back then that I would have loved to be a Governess. While it's a quiet, somewhat lonely lifestyle, I would have been a perfect match since I'm so painfully shy!
I don't think I can pick a favorite character from this book because there are just so many good ones. Some who were my favorite in the beginning ended up being ones that I didn't care as much for by the end and vice versa. There are so many wonderful and exciting twists and turns that I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading. This was a quick, three settings read and I can truthfully say that I hated to see it end.

Miss Hilly is just the worst boss to work for and Aibileen, Constantine, Minny and others know first hand. This wonderful book, based back in the 1960's, chronicles the lives of black house slaves and their white masters/mistresses. There is love, suspense, comedy, and of course, uncomfortable issues.
When Skeeter, a white woman, starts befriending the help after seeing the way that they can (and are) mistreated, a wonderful idea is born and the residents of this small Mississippi town are in for the shock of their lives. Taking risks, Skeeter meets with the help in secret to work on their little project. I think she ultimately learns the best lesson of all, that despite skin color, women can work together for the greater good.
You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you might even want to throw the book before you are finished. I promise you the end is well worth the wait!! If you don't believe in Karma before reading this book, it just might change your mind!
Amazingly, this is Kathryn Stockett's first novel. I sure hope it won't be her last!!

Holly and Hannah have just lost their mother. Hannah is all over Holly for never helping take care of their mother and is even more upset when she finds out everything has been left to Holly. She never amounted to anything spectacular so Hannah can't figure it all out. After all, what good is a songwriter who jumps from job to job? Hannah is married to a successful lawyer and her life is on the up and up....or is it?
Hannah rushes over to her sister Holly's house (when was the last time they talked? Oh, right, the funeral when Hannah chewed Holly out for everything) and dumps off her adorable son Mason. Hannah needs Holly to watch her kid but won't give her any specifics for anything. Holly doesn't know the first thing about taking care of a child! How can Hannah do this to her? Holly can't figure it all out...where to keep Mason in her small studio apartment, how to continue to work, and how to shut him up when he cries.
Holly decides to take Mason to her mom's old house. There is more room and she will be able to write her songs there. She runs into Wyatt and suddenly, her life isn't so bad.

I wonder how much my perception of this book was altered by the announcement that it was being made into a movie that Miley Cyrus would star in?!?! I really think that may have tainted my thoughts on this book as I was reading it.
I have to give it to LisA McMann, this book is an original paranormal. I've not read anything like it before. The whole 'getting into someone's dream' is something that my husband has had an interest in. So far, he's been successful at changing the outcome of the dream one time (that he's told me). Cabel seemed like a real dirt bag until you find out what he really is. I wasn't feeling him for the longest time!
I'm sure the younger set will enjoy this more than I did. I will be reading Gone next though...just to see what does happen! (less)
