Welcome to the Book Nook

Well, hello! Welcome to my lil ole reading area!

What would you like to read today? Some fiction? Perhaps a historical romance? Or, a biography on the famous literary author of the century? Can I interest you on a book about the arts, culinary classics, or self-help? There are just so many options, sometimes its hard to choose what to read next!

I tend to gravitate towards fiction: historical, romance, mystery, mythical – any way it can be written, I’ll probably enjoy it! I especially love to read Christian fiction, which makes up most of my reading list.

I hope you’ll join me on this reading adventure! What is your favorite book or books to get lost in? I’d love to hear about them and add them to my 2016 Reading List!! If you’re interested in the latest books I’ve been reading or what novels I have up next in my queue, friend me on Goodreads! I’ll also be updating my 2016 Reading List below with the books I’ve finished. I have a goal to read at least 100 books this year, so lets get this party started! 🙂

    Hmmm…Advice: Always follow God’s plan for living a life holy to him. Read and follow the Bible. Don’t listen to the world’s ideas of what is acceptible or good. It is often the direct opposite of what God says. God doesn’t change and neither does his word. You are never alone, no matter what it feels like. God is always with you, through the good and the bad, and everything is for your good, if you love him. Believe and trust in Him!
