I loved the theme of cathedrals which is woven through this book. The author has visited quite a few of them all over the world, and she encountered them in surprising ways throughout the year portrayed in the book. Her description of cathedrals made me view them in a whole new light. She says that cathedrals are monuments people built to help them remember God’s goodness. It’s interesting to think of cathedrals as ornate and visible reminders of God and our relationship with him. … More Review – Remember God
Out of all the items in this book, my favorites were the geodes, pinecones, and seashells. To see the inner design of them was spectacular.
I also enjoyed the sports equipment such as golf balls, a bowling ball, baseballs, softballs, and sports cleats. It was interesting to learn how these items are manufactured and what material is used.
I appreciated the author’s bright and chipper tone in this book. The words are light and encouraging. This book is basically a devotional, even though it’s categorized as self-help. Each devotion includes a prompt for journaling or reflection. … More Review -The Year of Living Happy
When I started this book, I had no idea where it was headed. It was unpredictable and tense and I wanted to find out what would happen. The ending was excellent and I was so happy to see where the author went with the idea. … More Review – Enclave
This book just wasn’t for me. It has a lot of favorable reviews on Amazon, so apparently it’s helpful for a lot of people. One of the main problems I had was that about 80-90% of the material was already familiar to me. I had already learned it through life or from reading other books. … More Review – Welcome to Adulting
I really enjoyed reading this! I read the whole thing in one day. It’s the kind of book that’s a lot of fun to read. It’s entertaining, and I learned a lot from it.
The book gives a sense of who Case is, his personality and character, which is something we don’t really get to know about any of the players from their public presence alone. The writing is good and uses some unique phraseology. It’s honest, funny, down to earth, and tells so many great stories. I was amazed at how many famous players and coaches Case has interacted with. … More Review – Playing for More
This book made me realize how much I love to read! I’ll be returning to it for motivation whenever I find myself in a reading slump.
This was short and quick to read, but meaningful and thoughtful. In chapters that resembled essays, Bogel blends stories from her reading life with truths about reading. … More Review – I’d Rather Be Reading
I think many young women would enjoy this book and find a lot of helpful advice in it. For me, parts of it were helpful and other parts weren’t as helpful. I thought the book might have been more helpful for someone younger, probably mid to late teens. … More Review – Am I Enough?
This is probably the most difficult book I’ve ever read. Not difficult in the same way as a classic might be with hard-to-understand language. No, the writing was easy to understand. In fact, it was vivid, sometimes shocking. … More Review – Courage, Dear Heart: Letters to a Weary World
This is a Christian retelling of the Cinderella story. I really loved how creatively some of the elements of the Cinderella story were included in this book. This is a more realistic/historical retelling, but many of the essentials (like the fairy godmother, the glass slipper, etc.) are still there, though in a creative way. I enjoyed watching out for those elements and then identifying them. … More Review – Ashes of Glass
