Spirit Wars by Kris Vallotton
For those of you who have no idea what is going on in the spiritual relm read this book. This author draws you into something you may never knew about. Having said that, I will remind you that this is an infalliable man. Don't "believe" everything and be sure to study this in scripture as well. Vallotton is a fantastic writer and after reading this you should look up Frank Peretti if you haven't already!
I received this book from Chosen/Baker publishing in exchange for an honest review.

The Exceptional Life

The Exceptional Life by Stephen Arterburn
I really don't like giving bad reviews. I was able to read a couple chapters, but I just couldn't get into it. I am not a big fan of "steps" to make life better anyway. When reading those chapters I kept thinking you got to the point already why are you still dissecting it?
This book was sent to me from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.

My Stubborn Heart

My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade
This was a great read from new author Becky Wade. Instead of ruining the book for you with spoilers, I am going to tell you my the reason I liked it so much. Wade did not overuse the use of God in the story. Some if not most contemporary romance throw the Lord in all too often to be overbearing and overdone. God was weaved throughout the story so naturally that it did not seemed at all forced upon the reader. Wade made God seem real and approachable! This book was sent to be complementary from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

The Fiddler

The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis I was definitely surprised on how well I liked this book. I generally love Beverly Lewis but her last book made me think she took all her previous books and made them into one. Having said that, I really liked The Fiddler. It was different from what Lewis usually writes. The characters seemed to be more realistic and you wanted things to work out between Amelia and Michael.I feel this book made me want to get to know the Amish a bit more.
