A review of “The Christmas Promise”

This week’s book was “The Christmas Promise” by Donna VanLiere, published in 2007. I stumbled upon this book last week when exploring a new library, and figured it would fit perfectly into my four weeks of Christmas books.  “The Christmas Promise” is a part of a series labeled “Christmas Hope Series”. This book is actuallyContinue reading “A review of “The Christmas Promise””

A review of “Sula”

Sorry this is coming so late, time zone changes are a big thing. This week I have read “Sula” by Toni Morrison. A classic book that is now being taught in many schools.

Review of “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me”

“You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me” seemed to be a fitting first book to review because of all the press Sherman Alexie has been getting recently. Sherman Alexie has been accused of sexual assault by many women, and it wasn’t until very recently that the accusations were proved false. When the accusations wereContinue reading “Review of “You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me””
