Are you ready for some laughs?

Hi, I’ve been reading this awesome book called Rhinestones on my Flip-Flops by Jane Jenkins Herlong. This is a very interesting book about several different types of women in the Bible to learn good virtues and how to be humble with a little humor put in the mix.

These are a few WOW (women of wisdom) characters we look at in the book.We look at Esther and her courage to know in her heart what was the right thing to do, even though her life was at stake. Then we look at Mary and Martha and how each woman had different feelings for the priorities.  We look at Sarah, Abraham’s wife and how she took matters in her hands, because felt tired and dried up.  And let’s  not forget Naomi and Ruth… both had many situations to over come, but kept their faith and God richly blessed them. There are more women mentioned in this book, but you get the point. Women role models that are good examples to learn by.

I have liked this book, but it hasn’t been my all time favorite. The humor was fairly good and well thought about. It always seemed to put a smile on my face. However, the book was just a so-so read for me. Sometimes I felt the topics and chapters wandered. However, that is just a matter of opinion. Lastly, I have to mention this was a complimentary copy of the book from Faith Words/Hachette Publishing company.

If you’d like to find a  copy, here are a few places.

Walmart: $10.19 paperback

Amazon: $10.19 paperback

Barnes and Noble: $10.33 paperback (sample digital available)

I’ll see you again next week with my newest legal thriller read.

Books and short stories for the Holiday Season

Hi, folks… We got a great selection of short stories just for the Holiday Season. We’ll also cover two great books I’ve read this month. 🙂 I’m so happy to have been sharing with you all these great stories this year. I hope that we’ll be able to continue and grow our social network next year. 15 more followers would be a great acheivement for 2017. Let’s make that happen!

So next week, watch for upcoming holiday reviews and my latest book Shadow in the Storm. This book gives me mixed feelings on whether I like it or not. I’m about half-way so we’ll be doing a review on that shortly.

Debbie Macomber Dashing through the Snow

Sorry for the delay folks!!! I got busy trying to save my mall. Sort of business work. Lol but here it is my review of Debbie Macomber’s Dashing through the Snow…I’ve watched the movie and read the book.

The book was so good I couldn’t keep my hands off of it. It was about a girl named Ashley Davidson who was trying to fly home for Christmas to see her mom. Her dad had been passed away for a year or so and it was the first Christmas they were apart. She so badly wanted an airline ticket but the ticket agent kept telling her to wait and step aside. The guy behind her was getting very annoyed and the ticket agent acted discriminatory and said he could fly stand by. This was the last straw for Ashley and she headed to the rental car agencies.

When she got the rental car agency, they told her she was too young. Suddenly the annoying guy that got a stand by ticket was behind her and said he’d take the car. Long story short, they soon were sharing the car and he introduced himself as Dashiell Sutherland.

Throughout the journey they learned to like each other company. There were several Laugh-out-Loud moments. They soon picked up a puppy from a Veteran (not a retired Veterinarian as some younger children think they are). The story becomes more entertaining and the dog even embarrasses Ashley while singing karaoke. Also that night things change  a lot between Dash and Ashley.

Soon they were to arrive at Ashley’s home, but not with out some problems from the police and FBI. The funniest part is that the FBI thinks Ashley is a terrorist and that Dash is in danger, but you’ll have to read the book to see the full gist or the comical situations the FBI gets them selves into.

However, the book in my opinion was a heck of a lot better than the movie. Can you believe that? The movie is almost a complete different story. This is spolier alert, but Dash in the movie appears to be in on the capture of Ashley Harrison (yup, different name and not sure why). And they put a bug on his cell phone! This ruins the entire story and makes the movie so disappointing compared to the book. There are several other elements too. Like instead of getting the dog from the Veteran she gets it from a motorcycle dude.

The book was so funny and entertaining and when I watched the movie after the book, I was like “the book was definitely better. What was wrong with the movie?”The Suspense wasn’t their; the chemical tension between the characters wasn’t as strong. I’ve seen better book movies.

So in my opinion get the book. Go to BJs and get it for $10 or as a kindle edition and have Amazon Echo read it to you. 🙂

Here’s the prices on Amazon for physical and kindle edition, and what it costs at Barnes and Noble:

Barnes and Noble: $9

Amazon: physical: $9; kindle edition: $9.99

As always happy reading, and stay tuned for more awesome books to snuggle up with.

More holiday stories coming up

Hello, everyone. I’ve gotten two great books I’m actually reading right now. The first one I got for Christmas. It’s called Dashing through the Snow by Debbie Macomber. It was also a movie this past Christmas season. I haven’t seen the movie, but I’m excited to compare the both together. The book almost makes me laugh out loud.

The next book in reviewing is from blogging for books. I got it for free. It’s called Amish Christmas at North Star: four stories of love and family. It’s primarily written by Katie Ganshert, but there are 4 other authors as well, because the book contains for separate books. So far a very exciting book. It’s sort of like a mystery; trying to solve a puzzle. Stay tuned for more on that.

I’m very excited to share these books with you because I’m really enjoying them. The reviews will be out sometime in the next few weeks. I know it won’t be the holidays anymore, but you’ll be able to think about gifts for next holiday season.

I’ll be doing another review come next week on Paper Creations’ wildlife origami.

I wish you all a Happy New Year! Have a safe night!

Happy 2016 everyone! Stay tuned for more awesome book reviews in  the coming months. 🙂

Hearts to all…
