Book Review: Waking Hours

Waking Hours by Liehl and Pete Nelson is a thriller book about a murder and odd occurances happening in East Salem, NY. Dani is a foresenis phychiatrist working for the DA office when the murder of teenage girl occurs During her investigation is runs into her teenage crush Tommy. Together they try and solve the crime and all of the other odd occurances around town before anyone esle getshurt.

I really liked this book. I thoguth the characters felt real and well thought out. The relationships between them and the minor characters were well thought out and written. I must say this was a book that made it hard to put down. I also like the way the authors wrote about Tommy's faith. It was honest and well handled. They didnt make him a saint nor a hypocrite. He was a very real person with a strong faith and smart head.

I would definately reccomend this book to friends and family. I am glad to have a copy of this in my library to read again.

Book Review: Night Night Blesssings

This is a really cute childrens book.

Normally my book reviews are about non-fiction books I get from This time I wanted to try 2 new things; 1) online version read thru a kindle reader for PC, and 2) getting a childrens book that Hannah and Titus could enjoy.

I was hoping to get this on my phone using the kindle reader on it but for some reason it did not work (and trust me I tried multiple times).

And now to the actual review:

Night Night Blessings by Amy Parker is a childrens book that teaches to be thankful for your blessings in the day. I really like how they cover the entire and things big and small. Food, family, friends, toys, and nature are all covered.

I think my children will really love this book. It will be a great conversation starter to see what they are thankfur for from their day. I hope this becomes a reoccuring book in our night time reading.

Book Review: The Story of the Bible

About 6 months ago I got a copy of "The Story of the Bible: The Fascinating History of Its Writing, Translation & Effect on Civilization" by Larry Stone.

I immediately started reading the book and looking at the amazing documents and papers inside and was fascinated. Then life got a little crazy and I never wrote a review. This book is a compilation of the history of the bible and how it has moved, changed, and directed in history. Along with a lot of history he has included photo copies of pertinent documents. It is really interesting to look through and learn so much about the Bible's history.

I really enjoyed this book. Its not a sit down and read cover to cover book but it is a learn a neat fact and look deeper into it book. I am glad to have this book on my bookshelf as a reference book.

Note: I did receive a free copy of this book from for me review. The comments above are my own and I was not compensated for a positive review.
