Book Review: Indigo’s Struggle by Krista Wagner

Indigo’s Struggle by Krista Wagner is an eye-opener!34813562

I rate this book with 5 stars!

As a teen we are easily led by our emotions. We struggle with feeling accepted, who Mr. Right might be, and friendship loyalties. We fall into what feels right rather than choosing what we understand and know is right. We become mentally unbalanced. I too, struggled as Indigo did (the main character). Krista wrote from understanding and it show’s in her literary work. I highly recommend this book, especially for teens in today’s world. Find courage to be who you’re meant to be- stand out and be strong in your singular identity. Know that there is purpose for your life. Everyone around you can benefit and be inspired by you, If you so choose.

BOOK REVIEW: The Gift is in the Giving by Bill Arienti (A great holiday read)


“If you need help getting into the Christmas spirit this book will do it!”

This Fireman needs a standing ovation. While I read this book I became amazed by the circumstances and the outcomes. The gifts in this book are miraculous. Who needs superheroes when you have a fireman like the fireman in this book! This is what Christmas is all about.  The fireman in The Gift is in the Giving sees so much loss and destruction. He does what he can to bring hope and inspiration. This fireman is a hero. This book is a MUST READ!

This book tares the heart for the victims but then brings a smile to the face and a glow of warmth with the giving of each gift. It makes me want to get out there and drop presents on doorsteps of those in need, knock, and then run- lol!

This book is the perfect book to read cuddled up in a blanket, sitting by the fire, and maybe some cocoa on Christmas Eve- A great book to read aloud to the family.

Book Review: Where the Water Rages by Jacquelyn Sill

32468748I just finished Where the Water Rages by Jacquelyn Sill. What an amazing story! Jacquelyn Sill did a great job portraying, not just physical struggle, but our inner struggle as well- oh, how our emotional waters can rage.

Jacquelyn also did an amazing job bringing to light sex trafficking and how it affects the child. Jacquelyn wrote on this subject very delicately. Her book is a must read! Also, don’t forget the tissue near the end.

BOOK REVIEW: Victim of Shame by Mian Mohsin Zia (I love this book)

I just finished “Victim of Shame’ and I’m kind-of speechless. I love a book that touches deeply and unfolds answers to hard questions throughout the story. I can relate to both main characters in my own way. This book had my eyes watering several times and it was hard for me to stop reading. This story is now on my favorite book list, thank you Author Mian Mohsin Zia.

I give this book a 5 star rating for the depth of life and the struggles so deep that they are life changing- “Why me, God!”
