I Love You, Funny Bunny | Book Review

I read this aloud to my nine-year-old sister and she laughed throughout the entire book and completely melted at the pictures (this was a little “young” for her as she’s been reading chapter books for years now, but she still loves them). I agree with her that the illustrations are simply adorable and sweet.

The text is very rhythmic, which I enjoy reading. It definitely seems like it is geared more for mom/child with just one page, where the big bunny loves “how you call my name in your own special way” (and the illustration amplifies “MOM!”). Besides that, it fits almost any adult/child relationship and is a sweet little book.

Though marketed as a Christian book, there is nothing in here that really is “Christian.” (just for those who are interested in that tidbit)

You're My Little Sweet Pea | Book Review

I’ve reviewed a lot of children’s books, and some just stand out to me as quaint, precious, and adorable. “You’re My Little Sweet Pea” is one of those books. The art makes me think of my childhood—simplistic, sweet, and innocent. The colors are light and gives the book just a pleasant presentation.

The text makes me think of my relationship with my niece and nephew—just all of the lovely things that babies are and how they brighten our world. I like that the book could apply to any relationship; it could be grandparents to grandchildren, aunts or uncles, parents, even older siblings—anyone who has a little sweet pea in their lives.

Better Together | Book Review

Better Together is a cute little coffee table book. Who doesn't like to see images of cute little animals together? This compilation is made even better by friendship quotes throughout the ages. These quotes are not exclusively Christian; some are taken from the Bible, but most of them are from famous people around the world. I appreciated how the quotes were categorized into Friendship, Unity & Togetherness, Love & Compassion, Respect, Peace & Harmony, Diversity, and Triumph & Strength. While it seems like it would be a great gift for a friend, it could also be a great reference if one was looking for quotes to share with a friend.

*I received this book from Book Look Bloggers and happily provided my honest review*

Book Description

Wouldn't life be boring if we were all exactly the same? And although each of us is unique, we're really not so different after all. And it's our differences that truly make us Better Together.
Better Together combines adorable photos of unlikely animal pairs alongside poignant quotes on topics for friends of all stripes on subjects such as love, respect, and compassion. Memorable, wise words alongside sweet photography beautifully and humorously communicate the truth about and magic of friendship—that although we may not be exactly the same, we're really not so different after all.
Quotes from George Washington to Bono focus on friendship, unity, strength, and on harmony between people with diverse viewpoints, lifestyles, or beliefs and include inspiring quotes such as:
"Do I not destroy my enemies when I make them my friends?" -Abraham Lincoln
"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You too? I thought I was the only one.'" -C. S. Lewis
"'Stay' is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary." -Louisa May Alcott
 "I would rather walk with a friend in the dark than walk alone in the light." -Helen Keller
Better Together is full of reminders of the very best things about friendship and is the perfect way to tell someone you love: "Life is best with a friend like you."

The Accident | Blog Tour

I am excited to be a part of my friend's new release tour. I read "The Accident" while it was in the editing process, so I can't give an updated review, but I loved what I saw "in the works!" It is cute, packs a nice little punch of a message, and is fun--I haven't read many epistolary writings, so it was new for me and I loved it.

Book Description
Can a wrong number bring true love or only heartache? 

Ashlyn Conner’s life is spiraling out of control. She's already lost her father, and now that her mom is battling thyroid cancer, she fears being orphaned at fifteen. When a friendly stranger texts the wrong number, Ashlyn finds a confidant she didn’t realize she needed. The more Ashlyn gets to know Chris Knowles, the more she’s convinced he could be the caring husband and loving father the Conner women so desperately need.

If only she’d been honest and hadn’t made him believe he was texting her mother, Danielle.

When the truth comes out, will she lose her friendship with Chris and damage her relationship with her mother? Or can God make something beautiful out of her lie?

Told through text messages and Ashlyn’s journal entries, The Accident is a heartwarming, family-centered story.
