Feels Like Something I Would Write - My Review of A Chance at Forever

Published by: Bethany House
By: Melissa Jagears

I am a writer. I like to include children and teens in my books. I like to focus on adults helping those young people. For those reasons, this book felt like something that I would write.

A Chance at Forever tells the story of a young woman who is working at an orphanage and a man who starts helping out there. The past that these two share is not a good one, but they both have a love for the children in their care.
A Chance at Forever

What I liked:

The characters are all very interesting. I feel like they stand out from the characters in other books that I have read.

The story pulled me in and I wanted it to keep going on forever.

Like I said, this book has children and teens in it and I liked that.

This is a touching read.

What I didn’t like:

I just wish that this book was longer.

My conclusion:

Overall, I really liked this book.

I give A Chance at Forever 5 out of 5 stars.

Fun Farm Book for Nighttime - My Review of Night Night, Farm

Published by: Tommy Nelson
Written by: Amy Parker
Illustrated by: Virginia Allyn

I have never been a big fan of "touch and feel" books but some of the things that little ones get to feel in this book are actually pretty cute and fun - such as a woolly sheep and the blanket covering some adorable pigs.

I enjoy reading children's books and sharing them with my nieces and nephews and I was happy to have the opportunity to read and review Night Night, Farm.

Night Night, Farm Touch and Feel

The illustrations:

The pictures in this book are adorable! I love them!

Who This Book is For:

This is good for any baby or toddler, especially those who love farm animals.

What I liked:

The pictures in this book are so, so cute.

Like I mentioned before, the things that little ones get to feel are fun.

This is a colorful and fun book.

What I didn’t like:

Some of the "story" and wording felt a little off to me.

My conclusion:

Overall, I like this book.

I give Night Night, Farm 4 out of 5 stars.

Like that It's Focused on Yosemite - My Review of Where the Fire Falls

Published by: Waterbrook
By: Karen Barnett

I have been to a few of the National Parks, and Yosemite is one of them. I went there a couple of years ago and I remember my visit so I was happy to have the chance to read and review Where the Fire Falls, a book based in that park.

This book tells the story of a woman who is running from her past. A painter, she is pretending to be a whole new version of herself because she is afraid she will not be successful otherwise. She spends time at Yosemite National Park and her whole world is shaken.

Who the book is for:


Those who have visited Yosemite like I have may enjoy this book and also those who would like to go there but have not.

What I liked:


I like all of the details and descriptions regarding Yosemite and various parts of the park.

The characters are likable.

The story is unique.

What I didn’t like:


This book is a little "blah". I wish that there was more to it and that it was a little more exciting.

There seems to be an anti-gun message in this book that I found a little surprising and weird.

My conclusion:


Overall, I thought this was an okay book.

I give Where the Fire Falls 3 out of 5 stars.
