Girl Online on Tour: Book Review

Girl Online on Tour: Book Review

Girl Online on Tour is the sequel to Girl Online, both written by Zoe Sugg, AKA Zoella. This time around, Penny is still with her boyfriend Noah, the so-called “rock god.” Noah invites Penny to go on his European tour with him so they can spend the summer together. This book is clearly written for teenagers, but since I love Zoe and I enjoyed the first book, I thought I would give it a chance. To read my review on the first Girl Online book, click here.

One Thousand Gifts

One Thousand Gifts

Experiencing joy in the happy and exciting moments is undoubtedly easier than being thankful and joyful in the difficult moments. However, God calls us to find joy in ALL things. If we learn to grow from every experience we have and find more joy in the Lord through those times, that is definitely something to be joyful about. The book One Thousand Gifts helped shape and refine my view of what blessings are and how to be grateful for the small things, the big moments and the difficult situations.

Love Does: Book Review

Love Does: Book Review

Love is never stationary. In the end, love doesn’t just keep thinking about it or keep planning for it. Simply put: love does.  – Bob Goff

Love Does is a book all about the act of love: the kind of love that goes beyond thoughts and feelings and goes deeper into the act of sacrifice and selflessness. The author, Bob Goff, uses many examples and stories from his own life and from those around him to demonstrate this kind of love in action. This book not only had me laughing and kept me intrigued, it also taught me a lot about the heart of God and the kind of life I should strive to live.

The Lost Girls: Book Review

The Lost Girls: Book Review

Books have such an incredible ability to take us away from our current lives and transport us to a faraway land, immersed in characters we grow to love and places we want to go. I have not done much traveling in my life, but I do love to read about adventures other people have had.

The Lost Girls is about three women (Jennifer Baggett, Holly Corbett and Amanda Pressner) from New York City who decide to escape reality for a year and go on an around-the-world trip.

April Book Reviews: The Power of Habit and more

April was an excellent month of reading for me. I discovered a non-fiction book, a memoir and a fiction story. I love reading, and the weather has been so nice lately that I have started reading outside on my patio. There’s nothing quite like sitting outside drinking iced tea, eating watermelon and reading a book. Yes please!

March Book Reviews

March Book Reviews

I write monthly book reviews of the books I read the previous month as a way of keeping myself accountable to read more, to share good books with you, and to let you know when I come across books that were not worth my time. I also like to hear what you’ve been reading, so we have a little book club going here on the blog. I read quite a few amazing books in January and February, which you can check out in those posts, but the books I read in March did not quite measure up.

January Reads

January Reads

If you read my January Goals, you’ll know one of my goals was to read 2 new books in January. I used to read a lot when I was younger, and I always loved it. This year I decided I wanted to get back into reading, and I am so glad I did. It is definitely a habit I plan to keep up. Anyways, I ended up reading four new books last month, all of which were good in very different ways.
