Shadows in the Mind’s Eye by Janyre Tromp

Theme Chatter Post-traumatic stress disorder was a main theme in the early chapters of this book (it likely was through the whole book, but I only made it to twenty percent). While I have not been diagnosed with PTSD, I have experienced it. A tough thing, that. It has wild symptoms and is disruptive to… Continue reading Shadows in the Mind’s Eye by Janyre Tromp

The Master Craftsman by Kelli Stuart

Theme Chatter I didn’t really connect with any themes in the first 101 pages of this book, and I stopped reading it at that point. So the chatter today is about DNFing a book. Not every book is for every reader (though every book usually does find its readers), and since there are so many… Continue reading The Master Craftsman by Kelli Stuart

Counterfeit Love by Crystal Caudill

Theme Chatter Trusting God even if the worst should happen was a strong theme in this book. It isn’t always an easy thing to do, but it’s worth every ounce of fight we have in us to surrender to His will. I’ve been on the brink of death several times in my lifetime, and every… Continue reading Counterfeit Love by Crystal Caudill

Recently, I've been wanting to share some of my virtual traveling finds with you, friends, so… Continue reading Cozy Travels: Scotland + Happy News

The Lady of Galway Manor by Jennifer Deibel

Theme Chatter One theme prevalent in The Lady of Galway Manor was that characters made assumptions about others, which led to misunderstandings and hurt feelings. I’ve found in my own life that it’s much better to ask questions in order to learn about a person rather than assume I know them, which requires little to… Continue reading The Lady of Galway Manor by Jennifer Deibel

The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water by Erin Bartels

Theme Chatter Lost friendship was a strong theme in this novel. I can't help but think of my best friend in Kindergarten. I loved playing with Mandy and taking turns riding her pony, and we even dressed alike for Twinkie Day at school that year, making sure we brought along our matching Rainbow Bright dolls,… Continue reading The Girl Who Could Breathe Under Water by Erin Bartels
