Book Reviews 6

I don't get much time for reading when school is in session. After teaching all day and taking care of my family, I am usually asleep within minutes of getting still somewhere;) It never fails that at the end of the semesters, I devour books! Here's what I've been reading (and currently reading):

I picked this up at a yard sale, and let me tell you- It is EYE-OPENING! I recommend this to anyone who has children at home. Dobson and Bauer are painfully honest about our children, our education system, and our government.

As I have said before, I LOVE Francine Rivers. She is able to make powerful statements through her novels, so that I am not only entertained, but challenged too. I enjoyed Her Mother's Hope, and couldn't put Her Daughter's Dream down. All daughters and mothers can learn from the four generations in Rivers' latest works.

I borrowed Maid to Match from a student (it was exam week, and I needed a tiny break from grading and paperwork;). This book really surprised me. I was hooked from the first chapter. I can't wait to read Gist's other five novels! I loved the way she included the history of Biltmore Estate and the traditional roles of servants during turn of the century America. I was interested enough that I googled it for a possible vacation! :)

I actually bought this on audio c.d. to listen to going and coming from work. I am only on Chapter 2, but I can say I've already learned some things about bringing up my little lady. I can't wait to hear more!


  1. Thanks for the reviews! You do suck down books don't you!! :) (Me too!) I just read Richard Mabry MD's CODE BLUE. His debut novel and I liked it alot. It's free on kindle. If you don't have one you can download a phone ap/computer ap for free!

    When my mom gives me back The Familiar Stranger, I'll loan it to you. Very good.

  2. I just finsihed "Maid to Match" and I loved it. I couldn't put it down.



I love reading comments! Thanks:)
