Sunday Book Club: Friends Are Friends Forever

Posted October 15, 2017 / 16 Comments

… and now anyone who grew up in the 80s/90s is singing “if the Lord’s the Lord of them.” Sorry about that 😛 The reason for today’s topic is that I am currently in the town where I grew up, celebrating my 40th (yikes) birthday a couple of weeks early […]


Sunday Book Club: Need a Laugh?

Sunday Book Club: Need a Laugh?

Posted October 8, 2017 / 37 Comments

Sometimes we just need to laugh, don’t we? Like when the world seems bleaker at every turn. Like when pain gets to be too much. Like when life gets to be too much. We can cry or laugh. And sometimes it’s perfectly appropriate to cry. But sometimes it’s just necessary […]

Sunday Book Club: Falling Into Fall Reads

Posted October 1, 2017 / 27 Comments

Can you believe it’s already October?!? That means Christmas is about two months away… and then 2018 is right around the corner. Something else around the corner in October? My dreaded 40th birthday. Ugh. Has anyone figured out how to age backwards yet? Because I’ll pay. Anywho… It’s officially fall […]

Posted September 24, 2017 / 24 Comments

Happy Sunday, my friends! Do you use a specific book for your ‘devotions’ (time with God)? I tend to get bored with just one so I mix it up a bit, using several throughout the year. I tend to keep the same faves and add to them haha! So if […]

Posted July 23, 2017 / 24 Comments

As the countdown to #CFRR2017 (and a book contest I’m judging) gets smaller and smaller, it seems that my ability to come up with Sunday Book Club topics is also getting smaller and smaller. Lol. Soooooooo …. I’m turning it completely over to you for today. Talk to me. What […]

Sunday Book Club: Adorkable

Sunday Book Club: Adorkable

Posted June 25, 2017 / 16 Comments

Recently, Pepper Basham talked about how her hero in the upcoming Charming the Troublemaker (November 2017) is ‘adorkable’. Adorkable can mean: silly in a cute way adorably awkward kinda nerdy but really endearing too So that got me thinking about other ‘adorkable’ characters that I love. Like Eisley Barrett in […]

Sunday Book Club: How It All Began

Sunday Book Club: How It All Began

Posted June 11, 2017 / 50 Comments

Every story has a beginning. Every romance has that first boy-meets-girl moment. And your love of Christian fiction started with that first book that grabbed you and wouldn’t let go. For me, it was Janette Oke’s “Love Comes Softly” series and for many years I stuck to the historical genre. […]

Sunday Book Club: On the Subject of Ratings

Posted May 28, 2017 / 41 Comments

I recently read this blog post where the blogger explained why she is no longer rating books, and of course that got me thinking.  And then of course, I wanted to know what YOU think. How do you feel about book ratings in general? (Are they helpful? Too arbitrary?) What, […]

Sunday Book Club: Genre 101

Posted May 21, 2017 / 20 Comments

Happy Sunday, my friends! I get asked a lot for book recommendations for people starting out in a certain genre. Like “I’ve never read romantic suspense before. Where should I start?” OR “I want to learn more about World War 2. What novels would you recommend.” OR (my personal fave) […]

Happy Happy Sunday! I know I’ve been posting here on the blog this week even though I’ve been at #RT17 in Atlanta but I haven’t gotten the chance to interact with comments… so I feel like I’ve been away from y’all too! I’ve missed you!! While I was at the […]

Sunday Book Club (on a Monday): No Thanks

Let’s all just pretend for a moment that it’s still Sunday and that I wasn’t too busy to post the Sunday Book Club at its regularly scheduled time. :-/ Last week for Top Ten Tuesday I talked about Carrie-bait, i.e. those elements to a book that will instantly make me […]

Happy Sunday, my friends! Today, let’s talk about book towers. You know, those stacks of books that won’t fit on your bookshelf so they tower from the floor to nearly the bookshelf’s height. Or maybe you stack up your TBR pile for the week or the month, etc. Or maybe […]

Sunday Book Club: Which Literary Heroine are You?

Posted March 26, 2017 / 17 Comments

Happy Sunday! A friend shared a fun article on Facebook about which literary heroine is most like you, based on your Myers-Briggs personality assessment. You can take a Myers-Briggs type test here, if you haven’t already. I am an ISFJ-T, a “defender”. ISFJ-T’s are “very dedicated warm protectors, always ready […]
