November 2021 Book Reviews: The Hand of God, Mismatch, The Strangers, The Lion & the Unicorn

The true story of a former abortionist, two based-on-true-stories books about a cross-cultural secret relationship and a trio of siblings who share the same identifying information as another strange trio of kidnapped siblings. In spite of the busy-ness of NaNoWriMo (attempting to write 50,000 words of a novel in 30 days) and some recurring health …

October 2021 Book Reviews: Eternity In Their Hearts, Keep Going, Work Clean, In My Hands, Chasing Shadows

October began with books encouraging mind-workers to “keep going” and “work clean” (three guesses which titles that might be referring to, and the first two don’t count ;D) And then, as befits the month of ghosts, October’s reading ended on a rather somber note, with two Holocaust/WWII books (one fiction, one nonfiction), about heroic women who …

September 2021 Book Reviews: Serenity, Black Box Thinking, Hope Rising, The Cost of My Faith, Steal Like an Artist

What was surprising was: One of the books made me cry buckets of tears. (And I’m not usually a cry-er, especially when it comes to books) To see how …

August 2021 Book Reviews: The Chosen, The Inner Game of Tennis, Daughter of Cana, The Art of Racing in the Rain

August was surprisingly more fiction-heavy than usual. We’ve got two ancient history retellings, a story about life from the dog’s point of view, and then a performance-mindset/learning book masquerading as a book about tennis. To see how I did this last month with my To Be Read list, keep reading! (To learn more about the …

July 2021 Book Reviews: The Inner Game of Stress, The Four Tendencies, Mark of the Raven, The Land Beneath Us

July turned out to be more fiction-heavy than usual, but I still got in a few interesting nonfiction reads. Fiction, particularly fantasy fiction, rarely catches or hold my attention nowadays, but this month I discovered a trilogy that had me binging the entire 3-book set in one day. Interestingly, it wasn’t even the best story …
