I have to pre-order the book! I think I might do Sara Ella's pre-order challenge. Who else is doing it?


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod
I knew this one was going to be a winner and I can't wait for you guys to read it!


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
I can't wait to read it too!! I hope it isn't a long wait like our last pick though lol!! I am finally finishing it hahaha!


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod

Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
Okay guys... who has Unblemished?

I have seen some of our groupies reading this book and want to know who has gotten their pre-orders in. Because I don't have mine. *crying*

Zoe, great question! We strive for all of our book picks to be Christian based.

Sara Ella is a Christian and it is from a Christian publisher... so we would assume that is the case. But, I have learned from previous experiences that is not always so. However, in this case, I am hoping it is and I believe the principle of this book is! Angela would know more as she has read it already. Let's wait for her reply :D


Christen Krumm (krummcake) | 4 comments I would say it has a Very positive message. Also, promise it isn't scary :) (at least I didn't feel it ever was!!)


Christen Krumm (krummcake) | 4 comments Also I see some allegorical threads in the story as well :)


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
Great chime-in Christian! Can't wait to find those allegorical nuggets.

If you have some questions for Sara when we do the live show, make sure to add them here :D


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod
I no longer asume books from Christian pubishers are solid Christian books so before Melanie and I choose this one I was able to read the ARC I recieved from Sara Ella. Though not blantly so it has great themes and the Allegory that Christen mentioned. It's actully not scary at all... I am a huge chicken when it comes to scary books and I didn't have a problem with anything in this... even with the Void and the main Villian was more a "whit and charm" villian than a "kill you with a curse" villian...
I hope this helps.
Also knowing more about the author and even chatting with her personally her faith is very previlent in her life and it played a role in her writing you can tell :)

Zoë (zoeblife) Okay, great thank you so much! That does make me feel better about it :)
And I do agree with you guys about a lot of "Christian" books recently haven't necessarily been Christian!


Shantelle Who else had started Unblemished? I'm a little over 50% through! :)


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
I haven't gotten it yet? :*( I have a serious issue with Amazon right now lol! They don't like sending me my books on time.... ugh! I can't wait to see what you think Shantelle!!


Shantelle Yay!! Ugh, I hope you get your copy soon, Melanie!! That's no fun! I've been really enjoying Unblemished! Can't wait to see how it all turns out! :D


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod
I'm over here trying not to leak out spoilers as you guys are getting through the book! I can't wait for book 2!


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
Hahahahaaa... let's leave spoilers for the live show :D


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod
:D


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod

Zoë (zoeblife) Melanie- I often order my Christian books off christianbook. com, which I call CBD


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
Yes! I do too. They are awesome and when we were homeschooling it was like Christmas in September with CBD!! But, I am in Canada and shipping is a killer sometimes. Especially when you don't order a lot.


Angela (coffeechapters) | 162 comments Mod
also our exchange rate right now


message 29: by Zoë (new)

Zoë (zoeblife) Yeah, I'm in Canada too. My sister lived in the states so we always ship our thing there, and then we get it from her when we can.


Melanie Kilsby (realitywriter) | 107 comments Mod
Yay! There is actually a lot of Canadians on here.
That is so smart lol!! I need a sister in the States! ;)


Christen Krumm (krummcake) | 4 comments Melanie have you tried Book Depository? They ship free anywhere in the world :) I'm not sure they have homeschooling books, but they have just about everything else!!
