Read any Good Books lately?

I have a bit of a book fetish. I can't seem to walk by any bookstore without stepping inside! More often than not, I end up leaving holding in my hands pages and pages of thought-provoking, entertaining, allow myself to escape to another place for awhile, book! Do you know the feeling?

A good book takes you places. It has you thinking things you may have never considered before. It introduces you to amazing characters - some whom we may be able to relate too; some we may not. It is often the result of many late nights of nail-biting, page-turning, suspense. A good book is all this and a whole lot more.

For me, an amazing book leaves me wanting to start it all over again the second I read that last sentence on the very last page. It makes it very hard to start another book directly afterwards because nothing seems to quite compare to it!

Ladies, and the occasional gent, I give to you that exact book that I just described above!

Redeeming Love
 
 
Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers is one of those books that will have you crying, laughing, falling in love with the characters, as well as gaining a deeper appreciation and affection for your spouse! Written as a fictional re-telling of the story of Hosea from the Bible, you will find yourself hugging it to your chest, crying and saying "Wow!" over and over again once you have finished it - or maybe thats just me. In any case, it is an amazing book that I feel everyone should read!! In todays society where our choices of good literature, particularly good romance/love story literature, is getting harder and harder to come by, it is nice to read a wholesome, true, God blessed love story!
 
While I sat reading this book, I kept thinking to myself how everyone I know should own a copy and read this book for themselves! Right away! The wheels continued to turn and I thought to myself, "Hey! I have a blog. Why don't I offer a copy up for one of my amazing readers to win? Then at least one person I know will own this amazing book for themselves!"

  1. I'm with you...I love a good book. I have read so very many that stayed with, some for many years. One book that I read some years back impacted me so much I named the baby I was pregnant with when I read it for the main character in the book. I have always counted it as probably my all-time favorite book...it is The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara. It is about the battle of Gettysburg during the Civil War. The characters were all true historical people as were the events in the book. We named our son Joshua Lawrence Jones after Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. Another book that really changed my life and way of thinking about the world was To Kill a Mockingbird and more recently The Help. Great books all. I hope I win, but if I don't I'll probably go out and buy this book. Thanks for the recommend!

  2. Oh, this sounds like a great book! I too have that same problem (or is it?) of always walking out of a bookstore with a book...or two or three :-) Recently I have read Persuasion with my littles before rest time, and I think I enjoyed it more this time than when I read it in college. I am also starting to read Mere Christianity again (another book I haven't read since college). Perhaps I need to read books I haven't read yet...Oh, the Hunger Games trilogy was excellent as well :-)

  3. One of my favorites that I've read and and am thinking about lately is One Second After buy William R Forstchen. My husband bought it and it wasn't one I'd typically read but really opened my eyes to thing of that sort. After reading it I want to stock up and prepare of a disaster would hit!

  4. One of my favorite books ever is Memoirs of a Geisha.

  7. We got a Kindle Fire for Christmas, and I've been reading a bunch of free stuff from the Amazon Kindle store. I just finished "Old Fashioned Girl" by Louisa May Alcott. Even though it is set in the 1800's, when bicycles were brand new inventions (velocipedes!), I found so many parallels to our own culture. It starts as a country mouse meets city mouse sort of tale, but there is so much wisdom in it. Loved it!
