Books I’ve read lately

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to write up about some of the books I’ve been reading, so I thought I would do some concise summaries just to get them out of my head and recorded on this blog. You know that’s why I blog right? To get things out of my head […]

Crazy Love

I’m ashamed. It has taken me so long to write up a review of Crazy Love, by Francis Chan. I mean. Really. It’s a book that changed my life. Honestly. And I know several others that have been radically challenged by this book. I have read this book twice now. Once with my group of […]

Book Club:: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

This month’s book club book was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson. I wasn’t really sure what to expect with this book since it billed itself as a murder mystery type thriller set in Sweden. And honestly, I didn’t like the first couple chapters – I couldn’t figure out what was going […]
