Rewordable (word game)

A little change of pace from my book reviews – here’s a fun word game.

If you like brain games like I do, I think you’ll enjoy this one. I love games that make me think, such as scrabble, trivia, etc. and this one certainly does.

The entire game comes in a small box that makes it easy to take while traveling, the cards and discs are colorful, and the directions are easy to understand. If you can read, you can play this game, and the more players the more fun.

A fun gift, or a keeper, Rewordable is unique and fun.

Egypt's Sister

I’m a big fan of Angela Hunt. She is a gifted storyteller and creates beautiful Biblical Fiction. She puts a lot of research and dedication into her writing, and many of her characters are based on real people in history.

With that said, this isn’t one of my favorites that she’s written. It is a good story, but it didn’t fully captivate me. I found myself putting the book down and not being in a hurry to pick it back up. Although I wasn’t fully invested in Cleopatra, Chava gave me reason I continued on.

The aspect I loved about this book was Chava’s unique and intriguing relationship with God. Her faith is touching and carried the story, but I wish the pacing was a bit more steady.

Overall, this is a good story (but not great like the other books I’ve read by this author!)

Journey into Grace

I love reading devotionals, especially those geared toward women. It’s a simple way to spend time with the Lord and his teachings. Even during the busiest of days, these devotions quickly put your mind in the right place and steer your heart to spiritual thoughts.

Journey into Grace covers many everyday explorations, as well as those for more troubling or difficult times. They are each comprised of two pages, and includes a Scripture verse, devotion, a reflection section, and a brief conversation with God (prayer.)

This is a wonderful resource for quiet time with our Lord and will surely encourage you on your daily walk. It makes a beautiful keeper – or a thoughtful gift.

To Wager Her Heart

I love so much about this story—that it takes place in the south, it is a historical, and Tamera Alexander wrote it. Although I haven’t read the other two books in this series, I am familiar with Ms. Alexander’s writing after reading A Note Yet Unsung. She is a rich storyteller, and creates entertaining and unique characters. She incorporates music, faith, and history is a page-turning way.

The pacing is nice, the romance is light and satisfying, and the story put me through many emotions. A superb blend of fact and fiction!

Now I want to go back and read the first two books in the series. (This works well as a standalone.)
