The Lover Book Tag: Round 3

I'M BACK with a THIRD Lover-inspired book tag (and fourth general Lover-related post.) Will there ever be an end to these? PROBABLY NOT. I really enjoy this album! Sarah the Bibliophagist made this tag and Lori @ Lori's Bookshelf Reads did it on her own blog. Get ready to press play! And...begin. I FORGOT THAT YOU EXISTED:… Continue reading The Lover Book Tag: Round 3


The Cheesy Goodness Book Tag

Sad story: I found a lump of leftover mozzarella in my fridge. That's not the sad part. I could have SWORN I'd used all the mozzarella earlier in the week. Elated, I set about making a cheese sandwich. I reached for the bag of mozzarella. My fingers closed around a hard-edged lump. It was an… Continue reading The Cheesy Goodness Book Tag

Like dessert, different genres of books inspire my praise or rouse my ire. I scream the same epithets when someone brings… Continue reading Books as Desserts: A Bakery Case of Genres


TERRIBLE PROSE TUESDAY: Overly inspirational

I've got some beef with Christian fiction. I love C. S. Lewis and realize the great impact his Narnia novels had on Christian literature. The problem with Lewis' work is that it inspired other Christians to write painfully obvious allegories that barely cover up the gospel message. Instead of telling stories, they get preachy. I'm not… Continue reading TERRIBLE PROSE TUESDAY: Overly inspirational
