Real, Not Perfect
by Stephanie Coleman

View in Library Catalog



Real, Not Perfect is a sad but uplifting story about a teen named Tessa and her struggles in the family life, friend life, school life, and relationship life. Stephanie Coleman writes an intriguing novel that i have already read so many times. It also shows how to stay close to Jesus, and i truly appreciate that!! It is book one in a series of four, about four friends: Tessa, Shay, Izzie, and Amelia. A good read, and i recommend it to all teenage girls ready for a good read!!

Captured by Love

Interesting. Intriguing. A little sexual. Sort of Christian-based. Not my pick for 14 and down. But definitely a good romance novel!

Where The Mountain Meets The Moon

I enjoyed this book a lot that I am rereading it. There are lots of interesting Chinese folklore woven into the story and is very clever. A very enchanting tale with so many amazing characters. Grace Lin is a great author. Even though this book is a good read for younger children, I think it's something everyone should read.

Hour of the Witch

I enjoyed this easy read with compelling writing that kept the pages turning. It's been awhile since I had a book in my hands that I did not want to put down. I admired Mary's strength (and at a young age) and courage, but oh my, shocking to see the role of women in such a patriarchal time. Women did not stand a chance, although I loved Constance - she would have none of it! Good for her. Interesting to note, historically, there were several (many?) witch trials before Salem; Hartford was of note. How is it I'm only learning this history now? Recommend? Absolutely.

Another hilarious installment of the Miss Fortune series. The characters are fantastic and the story has some great twists.

The Art Of Pastoring
by David Hansen

A refreshing look at ministry without all the answers. This read was encouraging and did not include the typical list of things to do to improve ones ministry. The most important focus was on prayer, time to recharge so that you can pastor others during messy and difficult times.

Our Woman In Moscow
by Beatriz Williams

I am a big fan of historical fiction but this book was a disappointment to me. It wasn't until the author's note after the novel ended that I learned of the historical episode the book was based on. Although I am now more interested in learning about the Cambridge spy ring, and the treasonous quartet, the novel itself did not convey "the stuff of legend." Without the author's note referencing this event from 1951. I would have been hard pressed to cite the history. At best, this is a novel about two sisters, Ruth and iris, and their lovers, with some sense of spies in and from Russia shortly after WW2, at the beginning of the cold war. A disappointing read for me.

The Bride's House

This book really held my attention! It covers 3 generations from the 1880's through the 1950's. It's centered around a family in a mining town in Colorado. It involves romance, secrets and the loyalties we live for. Excellent!
