Book Blitz: A Spoonful of Grace

A Spoonful of Grace: Mealtime Blessings in Bite-sized Pieces
by Annette Hubbell
Release date: Feb 2017
Genre: Family devotional, Children’s devotional

Meet A New Book

A book that sounds like a great way to connect with your family, in bite sized pieces. (Sorry I just couldn’t resist the pun.) A special grace/blessing/prayer for each meal sounds like a great idea, and I’m glad that they are kept intentionally short enough for a kids attention span.

Just 2 minutes each day can change your family meal time for a lifetime.

A Spoonful of Grace is a collection of 366 evening meal graces taken from all 66 books of the Bible and designed to provide meaningful exposure to prayer and the Bible at a most opportune time: the family evening meal.

The Scripture/grace devotions are inviting, can be grasped at several levels, and are brief enough (about two minutes) to hold the attention of hungry kids.

Here’s why:

  • Each day has an application section called Grace Notes: ideas and quotes to further illustrate the message and stimulate conversation.
  • Sundays are for Story Graces. These 52 devotions are a bit longer to afford the suspenseful, engrossing reading of stories such as David and Goliath, Daniel in the lions’ den, and Jonah and the big fish.
  • Special Graces are celebrations such as Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays.
  • Each grace:
    • Supports discussions of God’s attributes and of faith-based values, offering moral examples like forgiveness, friendship, honesty, trust, even table manners.
    • Creates curiosity about the Bible and ways in which Scripture can be applied to today’s issues.
    • Demonstrates how the act of praying together lifts one’s own spirit; fosters praise; and increases mutual feelings of appreciation, gratefulness, and accountability.
    • Teaches without overt instruction, similar to hiding extra veggies in the spaghetti sauce.
    • Remind us that our food, as well as God’s countless other daily blessings, is a gift.

Book Blitz: Sink

Sink
by M.E. Rhines
(Mermaid Royalty #1)
Publication date: July 31st 2017
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Meet A New Book

I am a HUGE fan of the Little Mermaid, and mermaids in general, and this book look too good to pass up. And if it’s from Clean Teen Publishing that is always a plus. Sink looks like it’s win-win. I can’t wait to get my teeth into this one. 😉

Obedience has always been a matter of survival for sixteen-year-old mermaid princess Pauline. Her mother is the tyrannical Queen Calypso, who rules the kingdom of Atargatis with an iron trident. To utter one word against her would mean banishment—or worse—so Pauline bites her tongue and minds her manners. But on the eve of her sister’s merling-shower, all of that is about to change. Confronted with the truth about what happens to the human men who are betrothed to the mermaids of Atargatis, Pauline realizes she can stay silent no more.

Determined to end the queen’s dark tradition, Pauline goes along on a search for shipwreck survivors, secretly planning to free them. But things get complicated when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to one of the men. Before she realizes what’s happening, she has kissed him—and a kiss from a mermaid is not without consequences. Now Pauline will have to risk everything if she is to save the young man and thwart the queen’s dark plans…

Review: Empty Threat

By Danny Bell
Pages: 243
Date Finished: 7/15/17

LoBook Reviews - Loved Itved It

Synopsis:

Book Blitz: Empty ThreatElana Black has the power to make herself fictional. But when she decides to start saving all the people in books and TV shows who die just for the sake of advancing the plot, she quickly learns that she’s not the only one with her powers.

All Elana wants to do is save people. But these others don’t want the stories to change, and they’ll do everything they can to stop her.

If you had the power to change fate… to create a happy ending where there wasn’t one before… would you do it if it meant risking your own?

Review:

A book for bookworms, and everyone who wishes they could find magic within themselves. I did a book blitz for Empty Threat and knew right away that I wanted to read this book.

Elana is socially awkward, and more than a little bit of a personal disaster, that is until she’s in her element with a book in hand or at the book store where she works. In fact, I see A LOT of myself in her (except for the ginger hair and living in L.A.) As I read the book I kept thinking “that’s exactly what would be going through my mind too,” or “I would totally feel that same way.”

Elana is such a great character. And she has a good supporting cast in Olivia, her bestie, and Claire, her boss.

The book is written from Elana’s perspective and so as the reader you only know as much as she does. The truth behind her powers and the larger world of those with similar powers remains mostly a mystery to us. I know that this will bother some readers, because the action just keeps up and you are left wanting to have your questions answered. (As I’m sure Elana is too.)

This setup leaves you hungry for more, for me that was good. I liked that there was mystery and undiscovered depth. It gave the world building what it needed to expand from a very narrow viewpoint to a much, much bigger one.

Bottom Line:

I felt like this book was written for me, or with me in mind or something. I connected so heavily with Elana from the very first chapter. Empty Threat is the start of something great. I can’t wait to see where it goes from here.

Review: Mirain

By Jacob Reifsteck
Pages: 592
Date Finished: April 15, 2017

Book Reviews- It Was OkayIt Was Okay

Synopsis:

Princess Sofia, just recently turned old enough to have her own personal guards. The guards, Hector, an unproven, yet ambitious young knight and his sarcastic squire, Mark, sees this as an opportunity of a lifetime to guard the noble lady from the safety of her castle…but the lady has other plans. Her home, the land of Mirain, has prospered under years of peace, but the princess becomes alarmed at the news of possibly superstitious events at the outskirts of the kingdom. Even more alarming is that few knights bother to acknowledge them, preferring to instead compete in tournaments for personal glory and recognition. The princess drags her unwilling guards to investigate the reports of monsters in the far off corners of the realm. Soon, they discovers a much bigger problem than anyone anticipated.

Review:

I keep putting off writing this review, because I want to like this book, I really do. It just has too many problems. It felt like an unfinished or unedited book. But the promise of the book was there, in many little glimpses especially toward the latter half of the book.

The story is basically a coming of age tale for 3 characters Sophia, the crown princess, Hector he personal guard and Mark his squire. From naive young teens ready to take on the world to war weary veterans just desperate to help their friends survive the next onslaught.

The first problem is that the characters are too modern, especially Princess Sofia. The way she talked just ground a nerve, it didn’t fit with the rest of the story or setting. Especially when the characters use the phrase, “Just saying.” That being said her voice matured though out the book and by the end (finally) the dialogue fit the story.

Secondly, the mistakes! Several times characters were called by the wrong name. Once even a sentence was in the wrong place, which completely took me out of the story. The word knew was used instead of new, and there were other mistakes that really should have been caught by an editor.

Soap-Box-Rant: Also you can’t just steal the Uruk-hai from Tolkien. I’m pretty sure that’s copy right infringement or plagiarism or something. It’s one thing to make allusion to another work, or homage to it, but to just straight up take a part of his world and use it as your own that’s not good. They are not commonly used fantasy characters like elves, dwarves and what not they are characters made up by Tolkien for use in his world.

Bottom Line:

Please someone edit this book and put out a second edition! There is a good epic fantasy story hiding in this book, and I hope it will get the rewrite it deserves.

Book of the Year

I knew, as soon as I finished reading it, that Rags and Ruins would be my pick for book of the year. It turns so many fantasy troupes on their heads and I just feel in love with the characters. From my review: “Bob Dixon can weave a tale. Rags and Ruins is a masterpiece, a must read for fantasy fans. “My bottom line: I loved it! From the first page to the last, I thought this book was adorable and the characters truly likable.”

Read my full review.

Rags leads an idyllic life for a goblin child—he spends his days playing in the landfill with his gargoyle friend Ladin, going fishing with his father Hargo in the river, and developing his love of music. His parents love him intensely, and his mother Calin is fiercely protective of him. How could he ask for anything more as he lives an enchanted life on the reservation on the outskirts of the “civilized” world, surrounded by mystical creatures and magic? Little does Rags realize that he is not a goblin but instead a human who was abandoned shortly after his birth and left in the landfill to be raised by the goblins as a way to fulfill an ancient prophecy of good and evil, twin brothers separated at birth and reunited in the thirteenth year of their life, one to unleash an ancient evil, the other the only hope to stop it from happening. A powerful tale of magic, music, and danger, Rags and Ruins is sure to thrill readers of all ages with its mix of adventure, intrigue, and humor—and if it doesn’t, they’ll have to answer to a furious goblin mother.

“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.” ― William Styron

Top Ten Tuesday #31

toptentuesdayTop Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish in June 2010.



July 11, 2017 TopicTop Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island!

The gals over at the Broke and the Bookish are taking the summer off, but I figured I would use the time to post on a TTT topic I haven’t done yet. Besides, who hasn’t thought about the books they’d want on a deserted  island? And since I probably couldn’t bring my Kindle and all the books on it, cause you know battery life… here are my picks.

 

Top Ten Books I’d Want On A Deserted Island!

  1. The Bible – for the encouragement and hope.
  2. SAS Survival Handbook – for the practical advice.
  3. Foraging – seems smart to have a book like this with you on a deserted island.
  4. War and Peace – because it’s been on my TBR forever and this is pretty much the only way it’s going to get read.
  5. Where the Sidewalk Ends – cause I’d need a poetry book, but not one that took itself too serious.
  6. Celebration of Discipline – because I would have time on my hands, and this would help fill it.
  7. The Allan Quatermain Series – for the entertainment.
  8. The Great Library Book Series – also for entertainment and because it’s a series I’ve been meaning to read.
  9. National Geographic People of the World – so I wouldn’t feel so alone, or so that I could at least remember what other people looked like.
  10. The Potpourrific Great Big Grab Bag of Get Fuzzy – for the laughs.

That’s my list. Did I miss anything obvious? (I purposely didn’t put the Complete Shakespeare on this list because I’ve already read so much by him and I think I’d want to read new material. Also no complete Jane Austin because frankly she’s not my style.)

I did manage to finish Six of Crows before everything went wacky on us, I also technically ended the month in the top 100 but barely (at #92 in the USA) and I did manage to create my bullet journal pages.

But well the goal of small goals is to take it one step at a time.

Sit down and review my week every Monday.

June 2017 Book Pick Ups

The Deliberate ReaderOnce again I got WAAAY too many books this month. I’ve really got to stop opening up book deal emails and emails from authors. My Kindle is over flowing.

Plus a book by my friend Karen Barnett came out in June, and our local independent book store had a sale.

Also over summer break we are trying to read all of the Dr. Seuss books on this checklist (as many as we can get our hands on.)

For Kindle:

The Pearl of Wisdom Saga: Two Book Bundle
Why I got it: Author freebie. The description for this fantasy series starts, “Kings. Queens. Treachery.” That was enough to get me interested plus the title of the first book “Two Heads Two Spikes” sounds intriguing, and then the cover for book 3 sealed it. Yeah this is a series that I want to check out.

Whispers From Another World: Whitney Powers Paranormal Adventure #1
Why I got it: Won it from an Amazon giveaway. It’s by the same author as the Pearls of Wisdom saga. While I’m not a fan of “medium heat romance” or urban fantasy, winning is always nice ;).

The Man of Legends
Why I got it: My Kindle First Selection for June. To tell you the truth I didn’t really scrutinize the list this month, and just picked out the science fiction selection.

Cage of Deceit: Reign of Secrets, Book 1
Why I got it: Author freebie. A princess by day, vigilante by night is a pretty unique twist on the princess troupe. You know the one where she’s a political pawn, but feels in her heart she’s something more, and then boom! turns out only she has the special whatever to save her kingdom. I am hoping this one turns that on its head.

99 Days (Red Proxy Book 2)
Why I got it: Author freebie. “Kertram is a contented man with a simple life. He likes the dangerous, but rewarding work of shepherding baby dragons… His wife is murdered and his babies kidnapped. He knows his newborns will be ritually sacrificed on the 99th day of their lives to satisfy the monstrous appetites of others — unless he can get there first.” Wow! I totally want to know what happens.

The Faerie Guardian (Creepy Hollow Book 1)
Why I got it: Author freebie. Ok the cover, I’ll admit it, one look at the cover and I was in. I’m not as into Fae stories as some, but it does sound interesting, and this books is a A 2014 Readers’ Favorite GOLD MEDAL WINNER in YA Fantasy.

Conan: Broadsword Legacy Collection
Why I got it: Instafreebie had this collection listed in a email I received from them. It’s EVERY Conan story in the preferred reading order. Now I can read Conan without having to wonder “what order do I tackle these in?”

Redemption: A Malvers War Story
Why I got it: Author freebie. This one didn’t actually sound too fascinating to me, but the others in the series did, Ancient Enemies and Ancient Allies. Monsters and humans in a never ending war, dark prophecy, and warrior women in an epic fantasy tale.  This story is still available on Instafreebie.

Seventh Mark (part 1 & 2)
Why I got it: Author freebie. This is one of the reason I’ve got to learn that not every freebie is worth it. Shifters, love triangles and romance… well I probably won’t be getting to this any time soon.

Salted
Why I got it: Author freebie. The author was intrigued when his mother challenged him to write a “mermaid” book that would appeal to boys. So what we get is an under the sea tale about Selkie’s, action and adventure. I’m am definitely excited to dive in this one.

eARC:

The Thirteenth Gate: Dominion Mysteries #2
Why I got it: New Kat Ross novel!!! **Dances in the streets** I am so hooked on Kat Ross, some of the best new fantasy I’ve read in the past couple of years. And if my enthusiasm isn’t enough here is a bite sized description, “Winter 1888. At an asylum in the English countryside, a man suspected of being Jack the Ripper kills an orderly and flees into the rain-soaked night.”

ARC:

1969 Chevrolet Camaro SS: Muscle Cars In Detail No. 4
Why I got it: My husband and I enjoy classic muscle cars, so I took a chance with this book.

Kids Books:

Tangled: Kingdom of Color
Why I got it: My weakness for cheap thrift store books and Disney Princesses strikes again.

The Berenstain Bears and the Sitter
Why I got it: IT WAS FIFTY CENTS! Seriously, that’s all to add another Berenstain BEars book to our collection.

Great Buildings
Why I got it: My husband picked this out at the thrift store.

Serendipity
Why I got them: Two reasons 1. I love Serendipity and endeavor to own them all. 2. Our local book store Browser’s Book had a 25% off sale one weekend in June and I found they had recently received a whole huge collection of Serendipity books. Thank you Dottie (name plate inside the books), whoever you are for passing on your books, we will make sure to enjoy them all.

PS: I’m personal friends with the owner, and when I told him what I had bought during the sale (at really reasonable prices I might add,) he told me, “I know I could put them on Ebay and get more for them there, but I want them in the hands of children.” Bingo! The Little Bug loves them and yep they are certainly going to be read not just shelved in a collection.

Other:

The Road to Paradise: A Vintage National Parks Novel
Why I got it: This is the latest novel by my friend Karen Barnett. I had it on pre-order since day one. It’s a historical fiction novel set in the early days of Mount Rainier National Park.

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1)
Why I got it: The online book fair for Little Bug’s school had this as one of the weekly deals, so I got a copy for $1. I may finally get into this YA series that everyone raves about. And really since I’m a big fan of Greek Mythology and retelling you’d have thought I would have already read this.

From The Library:

Six of Crows
Why I got it: The June choice for the Date A Book Club on Goodreads. It’s been a while since I’ve been involved with a book club and another book blogger I know was going to be doing it, so I jumped in. And I devoured this book. I can’t believe that I have never read a Leigh Bardugo book before.

How to Train Your Dragon: How to Fight a Dragon’s Fury (Audio)
Why I got it: June is Audiobook Month, so I thought I’d give audio books another shot, and besides this one was read by David Tennant. However the library sticker prevented me from seeing that this was book 12. Way to start at the end **head slap**.

Dr Seuss – Bartholomew and the Oobleck, Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?, Dr. Seuss’ Sleep Book, Gerald McBoing Boing, Hooper Humperdink … ? Not Him!, I Am Not Going to Get Up Today!
Why I got them: We are working through the Doctor Seuss library this summer. I will have to say that so far Gerald McBoing Boing has been the big hit.

Cover Reveal: The Queen’s Rising

With gorgeous description and detailed rendering of a world where not everything and everyone are what they seem, Rebecca Ross weaves an intricate tale of revenge, loyalty, and, ultimately, self-discovery. Don’t miss the beautiful cover for Rebecca Ross’s debut young adult fantasy, THE QUEEN’S RISING, and pre-order your copy today!

THE QUEEN’S RISING Synopsis:

When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.

Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.

Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes.

With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?
