Review: Sweet Surrender

Sweet Surrender Sweet Surrender by Maya Banks
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Humm... this book I am kind of iffy on. It started out pretty well I will add, but as it went on, to me it kinda seemed...dumb? I don't really know but it seemed so predictable. Anyways here's how it goes.

We start off with Grey being in a bind (you'll learn about it when you read it). Faith is also in a bind of her own. Grey is sent to Houston to try to get info from Faith, as he needs to get to her mother's boyfriend.

Grey starts to work at Faiths workplace. They connect at first sight and become flirty with each other, nothing happens at first.

Then Faith is threatened, right after the two got into a fight ans she's left home. Grey rushes off to her to try and protect her, it's not until then that they realize that they do have feelings for each other.

And of course alot more happens, but I can't tell you everything otherwise it will spoil it for you. I don't know If I would really recommend this to people in all honestly. It really wasn't that good, but If you are desperate I'd say go for it.

Review: Bared to You

Bared to You Bared to You by Sylvia Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was an amazing book!


So the book starts off with Eva's first day of work at her new office. Right when she get's there she runs into our leading man Gideon, and naturally, she falls down.
He is smitten upon their first meeting and asks the hook up the next day. Eva declines as she doesn't want that type of life. The thing you must know is Eva has a bad past and is scared to let people in.

Eventually the two do hook up, but they find something in each other they never thought they would. After spending day after day with each other, they realize that they may actually love each other and need each other to have a normal life.

Review: The Secret of Nightingale Wood

The Secret of Nightingale Wood The Secret of Nightingale Wood by Lucy Strange
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I wouldn't call this the worse book that I have ever read, but It wasn't my favorite either, I must say It was interesting though.
The book starts off with Henry's mother being "sick" we are not told the details at the beginning, we just know that something is not right. The family has just moved into a new house (more details on why later in the book). Her older brother also recently passed. Her father has to leave for business in Italy so he leaves Henry, the housekeeper, Henry's mother, and Henry's baby sister Piglet at home.
Henry's mother gets worse and eventually, the local doctor is called out, she is then told to stay in bed all day, have her door locked, and to take a certain pill. She does as the doctor says and only get's worse.
While all of this is going in, Henry feels alone, so she starts to imagine things. One night she sees a light in the woods and goes to investigate, there she finds a "witch".
My main problem with the book was how at the beginning it was very hard to follow and hard to get into. If a child was a reluctant reader, they would not be interested in reading this book.
While I won't go and tell you everything that goes on in the book, I will say that it was very suspenseful and once I got through the beginning I couldn't put it down. I would say that this is a book an older child would enjoy. A child that loves a good mystery, as to me, that is what this book really is.

I thank the publisher for sending me an ARC of this novel, it did not influence my rating of the book whatsoever.

Review: 5 Minute Bible Stories

5 Minute Bible Stories 5 Minute Bible Stories by Good Books
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow! This was a great little book! When you first open it up, the pictures look amazing! They draw you in to read the book. A child would love the book for the pictures alone. The stories in this are also great. It is basically the whole Bible made for children to understand. I could see this book easily becoming a book a child would want you to read to them each night as it creates a calming presence.

Review: Sweet Filthy Boy

Sweet Filthy Boy Sweet Filthy Boy by Christina Lauren
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was a great start to Christina Lauren's new series!

Mia has just finished college so she and her friends go to Vegas to celebrate. While there Mia meets a man named Ansel. They hook up, but she wakes up different (I won't spoil it for you). She decides to go to Paris with him for the Summer to be like a normal person.

When she first arrives, she feels out of place. As time goes on, she starts to fit in and struggles on whether or not she wants to go back to the United States. Until Ansel's dirty secret comes out.

But guys! The ending of this book is so worth it! It's a must read if you have enjoyed their other books.

Picturing Heaven: 40 Hope-Filled Devotions with Coloring Pages Picturing Heaven: 40 Hope-Filled Devotions with Coloring Pages by Randy Alcorn
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The cover of this book is absolutely gorgoeus! So are the fonts and the formatting of the book. the only complaint I have is how the gold is printed on and is not actually foil.

Review: Shaken: Fighting to Stand Strong No Matter What Comes Your Way

Shaken: Fighting to Stand Strong No Matter What Comes Your Way Shaken: Fighting to Stand Strong No Matter What Comes Your Way by Tim Tebow
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When I saw that he would write a young readers copy of his original book, that I read and loved, I was ecstatic! I adore Tim with everything he does, and this book is no different!

The book starts off with Tim going through a tough time in his life, getting let off from the Eagles. He explains how he got through it and how we can all get through tough times by letting God lead us and remembering his love for us. Throughout the book he let's us into the kid's life's that he has worked with and how tough they have it and what he has learned from it. He never comes off as having an ego and always tries to tell us that it doesn't matter how people view you on Earth, it doesn't matter if you are popular, we are all equal in God's eyes!

I believe this book would be perfect for any child going through a tough time (especially if they know Tim and enjoy football). It really manages to hold the readers attention.

Thanks for Blogging for Books for sending me a copy to review.
