The Day Satan Called – Bill Scott

This book had been on my shelf for a while, untouched. It's not that I was scared of it, I just never got around to it. I would consider myself a spiritual, not religious person, and Christian. That being said, I do not believe that being a Christian is the only way to live on [...]

Soar! T. D. Jakes

I was sorely underwhelmed by this book, no pun intended. Yak yak yak... well, ok, intended. Maybe my disappointment stems from my expectations for the book, I anticipated it to be not solely about entrepreneurship, but also about building a vision for your life and some spiritual tidbits. I am not ready to open my [...]

The Shack – William P. Young

5/5 Stars. Though I found the book to be a bit cliche and corny at certain points, I will say that a book hasn't moved me like this one has in a long time. It actually made me feel something aside from just interest in seeing what happens next. The work tackles some very deep [...]

Conviction: The Untold Story of Putting Jodi Arias Behind Bars – Juan Martinez

I really enjoyed this and was happy to have some insight into his strategy and mindset. I loved seeing his tenacity in the courtroom and how hard he worked to not let Arias [...]

When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits – Mary Ann Winkowski

4/5 Stars I have to admit that I was skeptical before reading this book, as I always am with such works, even given my own experiences, connections, and abilities with the spirit world. However, overall, I was pleasantly surprised and did find a lot of useful information here. Mostly, I had it reinforced that my [...]

Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – Robert M. Pirsig

3/5 Stars Overall, I think this book was entertaining, and I do love a good philosophical read... however, it was slow to start and while I don't mind meandering around across the US as well as in the main character's mind, it became a bit excessive for me. After perusing some reviews on Goodreads I [...]

The Fault in our Stars – John Green

  3/5 Stars. Overall, I found this to be a fast and entertaining read. I liked how John Green captured the essence of teenage angst and attitude. This comes through despite Hazel and Gus being sick and made the characters more realistic to me, but in some other ways they seemed sort of unrealistic and [...]
