Book Review: The Choice by Nicholas Sparks

I'm not a Sparks fangirl.  I don't have to read everything written by him.  A few of his stories have caught my interest and The Choice is one of them.

What is the choice?  There are two of them in this story and the one I believe the title came from is not what you'd expect.  I should also point out that this story actually defies regular Nicholas Sparks logic.  I won't tell you how, though!

Gabby moved in next door to a single man, Travis.  Travis's closest friends are all married with children.  He was very attractive, very adventerous, and very much the vet she goes to when her dog is in trouble.  One can only guess what's going to happen next except Gabby has a boyfriend.

There is a second part to the story, but I'm not going to tell it to you because it gives away too much of the first part of the story.  All I will say is it has a lot do with the choice.

I wasn't too thrilled with the second part of the book.  Honestly, it felt like it came out of left field and didn't connect well with the first part.  As its own story it's nice, I just don't feel it fits with the first part too much.

Book Review: The Man in the Ceiling by Jules Feiffer

I started this book, oh, I think way back in the seventh grade, maybe earlier.  That was about 19 years ago.  I got maybe a chapter or two in and thought it was completely dull.  I put it away, not to want to pick it back up again.  Come this year, at age 30, I decided why not?  So, I picked it back up.  I was completely wrong.  It was a very enjoyable story.

Jimmy Jibbetts is a cartoonist.  Well, that's what he's working towards being when he grows up.  He also wants to impress his father and the popular guy at school, Charley Beemer.  Working together with Charley Jimmy finds out what is truly important.

Jimmy's uncle writes plays that he hopes to get on Broadway but that has never happened.  Until now.  He has come up with the one (weird) story that changes his life.  The changes show him and Jimmy what is most important and it gives Jimmy inspiration on what to do with the Charley Beemer incident.

Overall, I liked the story.  It was not what I was expecting.  When I was younger I didn't like that, but now, it's cool.

Book Review: Pattern for Romance (Quilts of Love #8) by Carla Olsen Gade

Honour Metcalf was an English woman living in America in 1879.  She's also a quilter working for a wealthy woman.  She is falsely accused of stealing and one Joshua Sutton comes to her rescue.  The only thing in Honour's family now is her sister, Temperance, as her parents and brother were killed on their trip to America.

Book Synopsis from goodreads.com:
Honour Metcalf s quilting needlework is admired by a wealthy customer of the Boston Mantua-maker for whom she works. In need of increasing her earnings, she agrees to create an elaborate white work bridal quilt for the dowager s niece. A beautiful design emerges as she carefully stitches the intricate patterns and she begins to dream of fashioning a wedding quilt of her own. When Honour is falsely accused of thievery and finds herself in a perilous position, merchant tailor Joshua Sutton comes to her aid. As he risks his relationships, reputation, and livelihood to prove her innocence, the two discover a grander plan a design for love.
I'm finding that I'm not really into historical romance and that hurts my opinion of this book.  It is nicely written and does tell a great story.  If you like historical and Christian romance you will probably enjoy this book.  I had a hard time with it as historical romance is becoming not my thing.

Book Review: Take Flight! by Robin Jones Gunn

A devotional written by Robin Jones Gunn and Cindy Hannan based on Gunn's popular Sisterchicks Series. Gunn starts off each section with a short story relating to the theme and then Hannan wraps everything up with the theological portion.  They included Bible verses, quotes from real life Sisterchicks, and quotes from the series itself.  If you're a fan of the Sisterchick Series or just Robin Jones Gunn's writing in general and looking for a new devotional this is a good one to get.

Tuesday Funnies

A day late and a dollar short.  Last week was a busy week for me and I didn't realize I was behind on things.  So, enjoy this post a day later.  Hopefully, next week I'll be back on schedule.  Also, congrats to the Tampa Bay Rays for winning the tie-breaker game against the Texas Rangers last night.  Good luck to the Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates who battle for the wild card tonight and the Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians who battle tomorrow night.  My team, Atlanta Braves, play the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday for the NLDS (as you can tell, baseball is my favorite sport).

And an extra one for this post being late:

Book Review: Five Miles South of Peculiar by Angela Hunt

I don't know.  This one felt different than other Angela Hunt works.  It was still good.  I did it enjoy it.  But, I didn't enjoy it as much as her other stuff that I've read.  It might have been the mood I was in while reading it.  I don't suffer from depression.  I suffer from social anxiety and I was in a down moment during the time I read this book, so it could have effected my opinion of the story.  I'm willing to give this book a try again in about a year to see if my opinion changes.

This is the story of almost 50 year old twin sisters who could not be more different.  One was the quiet type who stayed in the family house raising her family.  The other was a talented singer who went to Broadway to become a star.  Did she become star?  Well, no.  And now she was faced with a health issue that could put an end to her dreams.

Carlene's arrival home does not sit well with her twin sister, Darlene.  Darlene has always felt she lived in the shadows of her sister in more ways than one and now her sister was coming home to take over the limelight in Peculiar.

The youngest sister, Magnolia more commonly known as Nolie, deals with a tragic relationship from her past possibly having changed her just a bit.  She cares for her dogs and gardens on the estate when a man with his own haunted past moves in to help the ladies.

Book Review: Fifteen Minutes by Karen Kingsbury

Zack Dylan has a talent for singing.  When he leaves his girlfriend and his family's farm for the singing competition show Fifteen Minutes he promises to not let it change him or his faith in God.  Overnight Zack becomes a sensation, the show's most popular contestant.  But, they want him to quiet his talks of God and Christianity as well trying to pair him up with the cute little blonde cheerleader contestant.

Struggling with their faith are the judges.  We don't really get insight into the male judge, but we do get to know the two female judges.  One is a former winner of Fifteen Minutes who she wishes she had never tried out for the show.  She wants to look out for people like Zack and help them stay true to who they are.  The other female judge is a famous celebrity who grew up in a Christian home but turned away from it for fame.

The only interaction I've ever had with shows like these is watching them on TV, but I didn't like how Kingsbury made them seem like the devil.  It is instant fame and it can change people.  Yeah, they most likely want Christian contestants to quiet their talks on God.  That's Hollywood for you, unfortunately.  But, there have been Christian contestants who come out as Christian artists and I don't see them compromising their faith.  I don't think the industry is quite as evil as it is made out in this book.

Book Review: Truth Stained Lies by Terri Blackstock

Another novel of suspense from Terri Blackstock.

Cathy Cramer's brother has been accused of murdering his ex-wife.  Her job is to find out who did it.  She believes it is one of three criminals she has written about in her blog.  She feels this person is doing this to get to her.  Destroy her brother's life and indirectly destroy hers.

One little boy has to deal with the consequences of all this--Jacob.  His mom was murdered and his dad was arrested.   His maternal grandmother who is literally on her deathbed and uncle have been granted custody of Jacob while his father is in jail, much to the dismay of Cathy and her sisters.  How can his grandmother take care of the boy when she barely has enough energy to live?

Cathy goes on a wild goose chase looking for the murder of her former sister-in-law.  She is determined to get her brother out of jail.  Along the way Jacob gets sick and someone else comes up as a prospect.

Terri Blackstock writes Christian suspense very well.  There is enough Christianity in the story to make it Christian without brow beating us with the Word.  The answers to her suspenseful questions are never what you think they'll be.  She's written another great piece of work here.

Book Review: Ostrich by Matt Greene

How do I talk about this book?  I'm filled with conflicting emotions regarding the story.  I don't want to say it was well-written because as a whole the story was not.  But, I also don't want to say that it wasn't because in small sections, the chapters and each page, I enjoyed it.  It has its negatives and its positives.  I guess the negatives outweigh the positives since I rated the book a 2 and not a 3.

This story is about a boy who is sick.  I'm not sure if it states what he has, but I do know he has seizures.  He has to be admitted to the hospital at least once in the story.  Let me see if I get the story correctly.  He is trying to get into this private school.  He thinks something is up with his parents' marriage.  A lot of thinking is because of his friend and what she experienced with her parents.  He investigates his parents' marriage.

It was hard reading this story.  Like I said above I enjoyed it in small sections, but the problem was I kept waiting for the point.  What's the point of this story?  It never came.  The ending just left me confused.  It was an ending and it was a conclusion to something, but it didn't feel like the conclusion to the entire story that I just read.

Also, I'd like to point out there were some dirty parts in this book.  The boy is middle school age, I believe, and his dad finally takes parental controls off his computer.  I bet you know where I'm going with this.  Now the boy gets to peruse porn websites.  He's not doing it to jack-off.  He wants to know what they're like.  He describes (not very vividly so that it's disgusting, but it's dirty nonetheless) the different kinds.

Book Review: The Bookstore by Deborah Meyler

Esme from England is in New York to gain her doctorate in art history.  She's dating a rich professor from another college named Mitchell.  In her spare time she likes hanging out at this used bookstore named The Owl.  When something unexpected happens, she finds she needs a job, one that the university can't find out about as she is attending on a work study program, meaning the only jobs she can get are with the university.  In swoops The Owl to help her out.  The story is mainly about  whether Mitchell and Esme will stay together during this crisis.  He's from a well-to-do family and she's not.  Does he give into family pressure?  What does his heart truly say?

The Owl is a shabby used bookstore bringing with it a cast of characters that help Esme through the trying times.  I really liked the different characters she interacted with.  She had her fellow employees, her boss, shoppers, and the homeless trying to sell books to the store.

This book has its ups and downs.  There were times when I couldn't wait to read the next page and other times when I wanted to throw it against the wall, but I didn't because it's on my laptop and I'm not about to throw my laptop against the wall.  I did make it to the end.  I'll be honest.  I'm not too happy with the ending.  It did feel like this was the ending that was supposed to happen in the author's mind, but the story before it didn't quite lead up to it correctly.

I think overall readers will enjoy this story.  It won't be the greatest story they've ever read, but they won't be disappointed.

Book Review: Victim of Grace by Robin Jones Gunn

This is a combination autobiography and Bible lesson.  Robin Jones Gunn tells a little about her life in relation to being a victim of grace and how it relates to some events in the Bible.

What is a victim of grace?  As Gunn puts it, a victim of grace is when something happens in a person's life and God's grace gets them through it.  We don't earn God's grace.  He gives it to us freely.  Having it worked upon us we become a victim of grace.

Not everything in life goes as we planned or want it to.  This book shows times in Robin Jones Gunn's life when exactly that happened.  But, as she learns with each incident, God's grace is laid upon her to put her where she should be and eventually she gets her answers, the right ones for her life.

Robin Jones Gunn is most known for her Christy Miller, Sisterchicks, and Glenbrook series.  This is a step away from that format with a non-fiction title.  She has done a great job.

Book Review: The Winnowing Season (Amish Vines and Orchards #2) by Cindy Woodsmall

I have not read the first book in this series.  I love Amish fiction I came across this title I decided to check it out.  Reading the first book would probably have helped me understand more of this book, but I got through it just fine without that aid.

I have to admit some time has passed between reading the book and writing the review.  I do apologize for that.  Some things came up that took my mind off working on my blog.  But, I'm back, and I'm doing the best I can writing this review.

Jacob, Rhoda, Leah, Samuel, and others have decided to leave the Amish community of their youth and start a new one in Pennsylvania.  This plan might go awry thanks to something that happened to Rhoda in book one and is just now being brought before the church.

 Samuel has trouble of his own that he keeps from Rhoda.  Not just his secret does he keep from Rhoda, but himself, too.  In the time he is away she gets closer to Samuel's brother, Jacob, even though her heart belongs to Samuel.

I'm sorry my review stinks, but I did enjoy the book and if you like Amish fiction you'll enjoy it, too! (for better reviews check out goodreads.com).

Book Review: When God Intervenes by Dabney Hedegard

This is not just another story of a woman surviving cancer.  This is not just another story of God stepping in and performing miracles.

Dabney Hedegard faced death many times.  When I say faced death I mean she was at the state where her next breath most likely would be her last.  Six weeks into her first pregnancy an eight-inch tumor embedded in her chest was discovered.  With abortion not an option she'd consider, treatment was postponed until she had progressed in the pregnancy.  This was the beginning of her ten year battle against cancer, cardiomyopathy, mitral valve prolapse, pulmonary embolism, acute pneumonia, kidney failure, respiratory failure, and heart failure.

Dabney is not a woe is me person and she had every right to be.  She took every step as it came, the good and the bad.  She put her life in God's hands.  She did fall to the floor and cry at one point but who's to blame her?  She's suffered more than anyone's fair share.

Why did God send her to the brink so many times and then bring her back each and every time?  She doesn't know.  We don't know.  All we know is He did.  This is Dabney's story.

God is in control.  He does things we don't understand, but He also cares for us.  When it's not our time to go He won't take.  When it's not Dabney's time to go, He lets her stay.

Top Ten Tuesday

Ten Words/Topics That Will Not Make Me Pick Up a Book

1. Vampires
This obsession the world has with vampires has made me want to stay away from anything having to do with them.  This includes the classics like Dracula, which I have not read.  I know it's a classic and not like the sexy vampire stuff of today, but I just don't want to pick it up.  This vampire love makes me sick.

2. Anti-Christian
If it's anti-Christian/sacrilegious in topic and/or the title suggests that it could be I will not read it.  I'm not going to read something that blasts my religion, my beliefs, and my faith.  I'm not sorry.  Why should I?  It's not about being open-minded.  It's about not reading something that will just make me angry.  Why put myself through that?  Plus, I don't want to support someone who writes negatively about my religion.

3. Charles Dickens
The title of an author is a topic, I think.  It counts for me.  I had a bad experience with Great Expectations in high school and it's made me steer clear of any other books (minus A Christmal Carol) by Dickens.

4. Stephenie Meyers
Ugh.  What can I say?  I don't like her works.  I won't read a book written by her.  I don't expect good literature or a good reading experience.

5.  Cussing/Swearing in the Title
If the title has a swear word more likely than not the rest of the book will, too.  I'm not perfect.  I've said a cuss word a time or two, but that doesn't mean I should subject myself to reading them.  I'm not going to throw away a book because it has a cuss word in it, but if it's so blatantly in the title I'm not going to pick it up.  I'm not going to want to hold the book or look at it.

6. Business
Books on business, running a business, being a good manager, how to get clients, blah, blah, blah.  No way, Jose!  We've had a few of those float around the house growing up as my dad had to read them for work.  I wouldn't crack one of those open for all the money in the world.  

7. Horror
If it's horror I will most likely stay away.  I'm not a fan of horror.  It's not that it scares me.  Some does, some doesn't.  Mostly, it bores me.

8. Mythology
I'm not a fan.  I'm sure there are some great stories, but I've been hit with too many boring and bad stories that the topic greatly disinterests me.

9. Steamy Romances
Hell to the No.  These are also referred to as trashy romance novels.  I'm not going to read a dirty book.  No.

10. Fae/Fairy
I scrunch my nose.  I can't really explain why I don't like it.  I think it's everything associated with it that I can't get out of my mind when it comes to the topic.

There are always exceptions (except the Stephenie Meyer, anti-Christian, and most likely steamy romances) if I come across something I believe is a good story.  Can't count everything out.

Book Review: The Note II: Taking a Chance on Love by Angela Hunt

The Note was one of Hallmark's most popular movies so they wanted a sequel.  Angela Hunt had not written a sequel, but they created a screenplay anyway.  Hunt then created a novel based on the screenplay.  This is more of a sequel to the Hallmark movie rather than the novel.  That explains the differences.

Like the previous movie but unlike the previous book, the story is set in Middleborough, NC at the Middleborough Times.  Peyton MacGruder is still The Heart Healer.  In the book she was given a two week notice to turn her writing around, but in the movie she was just reprimanded for not being like the previous Heart Healer.  In The Note II she has gained a following and has hopes for getting syndicated.

Peyton has to figure herself out in The Note II as she did in the original.  She receives harsh criticism from a reader.  "Interviewing" or having a conversation as she calls it, the author of the criticism helps Peyton discover herself as well as connecting the criticizer with something from her past.

I don't fault Hunt for anything in this book.  As I recall, she had no plans for a sequel but Hallmark wanted one.  At the end of the book is an explanation from Angela Hunt as to why this book is remarkably different than the first.  This isn't her story as much as it is the screenwriter, Douglas Barr's.

Hallmark has a third movie, Notes From the Heart Healer, coming out later this year,  but I don't think we'll see a companion novel from Angela Hunt any time soon.

Book Review: The Note by Angela Hunt

Over the waters of Tampa, Florida Flight 848 bursts into flames.  Everyone on board is killed.  After a week of many news outlets covering the story and believing the people are tired of the subject a woman approaches The Heart Healer for the Tampa Times,  Peyton MacGruder, with an artifact that has washed ashore from the wreckage.  It is a note from a father to his child declaring all is forgiven.  To T, signed Dad.

Given a two week notice because Peyton's Heart Healer has shown no heart in her writing and is nothing like the previous Heart Healer's column, she hopes the search for T can help her find her heart.  Along the way she finds something she never dream she'd come across.

There is real emotion in this story.  Fighting Peyton over the note is a national newscaster wanting to be first.  After the first Heart Healer article on the subject she tries to upstage Peyton in everything she does.  I really felt anger toward this character.  I wanted to give her a punch in the nose.

The story was turned into a Hallmark Channel Movie starring Ted McGinley and Genie Francis.  I try not to hold that against the novel. :p  Hey, it was an okay movie but nothing comparable to Angela Hunt's book.  This is another fabulous piece by one of my favorite Christian authors.

Book Review: The Dance (Restoration #1) by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley

Jim Anderson comes home from work to find his wife is gone.  No longer happy in their relationship, Marilyn has left him.  He doesn't pay any attention to her, listen to her, or provide her with the kind of love she deserves.  Most of all, she's never danced with him, not even on their wedding day.

How do Jim and Marilyn bring themselves back together?  Is it even possible?  Will it tear apart their grown (and almost grown) kids?  Can their marriage be saved?

This is a story of sacrifice.  Sometimes we have to do things we may not want to do for those we love.  We have to show love.  We have to be love.  We can't just profess love.  Saying "I love you" isn't enough.  This is what Jim has to learn.  

Dan Walsh  has presented us with a sweet story about how a relationship really should be.  It's about give and take, doing things for your loved one that you may not want to do because he or she wants you to do them.

Book Review: Facing the Music by Nick Carter

To be released: September 24, 2013

I'm not going to lie.  In high school and college I was a huge Backstreet Boys fan.  After their Black and Blue album when they took their 2 year hiatus I stopped paying much attention to them.  I sort of kept up with them.  I sort of knew what was going on with them.  I sort of knew about their music.  That means I sort of knew about Nick Carter and his disastrous ways.  I knew he dated Paris Hilton and I vaguely remember hearing about the House of Carters television show.  I also sort of remember hearing about his DUI.  I did hear about his sister's death and I Googled the heck out of that for reactions from Nick and his brother, Aaron.

This book was an eye-opener.  Nick talks about how he basically threw his life down the drain.  He was heavy into alcohol and drugs.  He came from a very dysfunctional family and it spiraled as he got older.  It was news to me as I hadn't paid much attention to him since 2004.

Nick realizes the mistakes he's made and the damage he's done to himself.  He doesn't know what damage he may have caused his body, but he knows he wants to fix what he can.  This book is for him to help himself and give him the chance to help others.  He dedicates it to his late sister Leslie whom he wished he could have helped and brought back from the brink.

If you are or were a Backstreet Boys fan I think you'll enjoy this look into Nick's life.  He's not afraid to tell the embarrassing moments.  He gets deep and knows when he messed up.

Teaser Tuesday

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.  Anyone can playing along!  Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Be careful not to include spoilers! (make sure that what you share doesn't give too much away!  You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers.

    Like a village matchmaker, the salesman grinned and fixed her up with this sleek blue machine, which he kept calling a crossover--a cross between a sedan and an SUV.  She had a feeling the vehicle was too big to be economical or politically correct, but since an entire row of similar vehicles waited behind a fence at the dealership, the manager was probably eager to move his inventory.

    Book Review: The Rockin' Chair by Steven Manchester

    John's wife, Alice , has Alzheimer's. This leads to the end of her life.  The end of her life leads to some retrospective thinking for John as well as the return of his grandkids to the family farm.  Death brings the kids home.  Death brings the memories back.

    The story opens with John and his daughter-in-law, Ellie, taking care of Alice, but the story really revolves around John's son, Hank, and Hank's children coming home to the farm.  Hank lives on the farm, but not in the same house as John and has a bad relationship with his father.  His three children live in various US cities and have their own problems to deal with.

    What is the importance of the rocking chair we find in the title?  You have to read to find that out.  This blogger is not up for spoilers.

    It's another Steven Manchester story.  He has this style where I feel he's telling the timeline of a story rather than really diving deep into the tale.  I don't know if that's an accurate description, but it is the closest I can get.  I didn't appreciate this one as much as the other two, but it was still a good read and that's what's important.

    Book Review: A Sound Like Fire by K.D. Veron

    Revelation.  While we may not all be familiar with the final book of the Bible we know what it signals: The Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

    Dax's brother, Zack, a preacher, had been trying to instill in him the love of God while Dax's family turned more and more away from Him.  Dax's daughter even joined a New Age cult.  As Dax turned away so did the rest of the world.

    This is the story of what happens when it's Revelation's turn.  There have been many post-apocalyptic books out there, most famously the Left Behind series. Veron hopes to add another to our collection with this piece.  He takes all of Revelation, all the years, trial, torment, and triumph, and packs it into one novel.

    I think it was too much to put into one novel.  There's too much information and time that is passed over.  Nothing gets enough detail as it needs.  Veron spends most of the time telling rather than showing.  Such and such happened over this period of time.  Most of what happens, though, is Dax being on the run.  Uneventful if you ask me.

    I do believe this story could have been better written.  If you are into post-apocalyptic/Revelation stories you might enjoy this one, but really, I think there are better out there.

    Book Review: Full Disclosure by Dee Henderson

    Secrets. This book is full of them and it's up to Paul Falcon to figure them out.  It's a serial murder case that brings FBI Murder Cop Paul Falcon and Midwestern Homicide Investigator Anne Silver together, but it's a case involving a former Vice President that keeps them close.  Another great suspenseful romance novel from Dee Henderson is here.

    Dee Henderson has a way of combining suspense and romance to bring in the women readers.  I've read suspense from male authors and they don't have what Henderson brings to the table and I suspect I like because I am a female who likes normally what females like.

    One big secret which you will find out near the beginning ties all of Henderson's worlds together.  I don't want to tell what it is for if you don't know I want you to be surprised.  I never suspected it and thought it was pretty cool.

    I read this book for pure pleasure.  All opinions are my own.  I was not compensated for this review in any way.
