The Gilded Cage by Lauren Sm..

The Gilded Cage by Lauren Smith

It took me a bit to get into this one, but once I did, I was hooked. I admit, I have a BDSM fetish when I read–if the fan fiction I tend to read is any indication–so any book that includes that is generally a winner with me. I have to say though, this is […]

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood,..

Starve Vol. 1 by Brian Wood, Daniel Zezelj, Dave Stewart

Starve was, in a word, amazing. I was absolutely captivated, only breaking when I need to blink my eyes away from my screen for a few seconds. I didn’t want it to end and was sad when it did. What intrigued me was the fact that the graphic novel was based around a cooking show. […]

Southern Cross Volume 1 by B..

Southern Cross Volume 1 by Becky Cloonan, Andy Belanger, Lee Loughridge, Serge LaPointe

Ok, here goes. I am not usually a comics/graphic novel person. Probably because I’m not big on pictures in my books. I literally dislike graphics, pictures, graphs, charts, etc., in my books when I’m reading. I’d rather have the information with nothing breaking it up other than maybe different colored/sized headlines. I have to say, […]

Unlimited by Davis Bunn

Unlimited by Davis Bunn

At first glance you’d never know this was a Christian fiction story. The way the book starts out, you’d think you had started your ordinary, run of the mill action/adventure/mystery novel. But as you go on, you see sprinklings of why this is a Christian fiction story. The story was a very good one–and I […]

The Race by Darrell Waltrip,..

The Race by Darrell Waltrip, Kyle Froman, & Billy Mauldin

I’ve been a NASCAR fan for quite a while so I know who Darrell Waltrip is. And I’ll admit, I thought this book was going to be more about racing than about being a Christian. I suppose I should have expected the Christianity bit by the publisher, but I wasn’t paying attention when I picked […]

I Will by Thom S. Rainer

I Will by Thom S. Rainer

This book will definitely step on some readers’ toes. I’ve always heard that a good sermon or a good book on how to be a proper Christian will step on your toes. That’s not always a good thing. In the case of I Will, it is. Too many times Christians (and non-Christians as well) focus […]

Autopsy of a Deceased Church..

Autopsy of a Deceased Church by Thom S. Rainer

I found this book to be quite interesting and eye opening.  I’d always wondered what could possibly cause a particular church location to shut its doors and now I have a fairly good idea of what those reasons are. Rainer doesn’t sugar coat the truth about why churches die. While to someone who might be […]

City of Blades by Robert Jac..

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett

City of Blades started out as a book I didn’t think I’d be able to get into. At first it just didn’t seem to be that interesting. I’m glad I stuck it out because if I hadn’t, I’d have missed one of the best books I’ve read in the last year! The second book in […]

Dead Man’s Kiss by Jen..

Dead Man’s Kiss by Jennifer Bray-Weber

I have to say, I enjoyed this book. I’m not a big “romance” fan anymore. Most of the books just seem to be far too boring or have little-to-no story beyond the sexual tension between the hero and heroine of the novel. I’ll be honest, there is plenty of sexual tension between Catalina and Valeryn, […]
