I Gave Dating A Chance

I Gave Dating a Chance by Jeremy Clark is another book about dating!! Amazing I know! Actually this book is about having a godly relationship with another human being (of the opposite sex) and how to go about that. Which sounds like dating... Yeah it basically is, but Jeremy Clark describe what can go wrong or how you can get to know another person. This book is more for an older age group like 13-17ish yrs. I actually enjoyed this one and FINISHED IT! It had many ideas for dates, lets you know what is kind of going on in the other person's mind and such. I hope you take a chance with this book. And keep checking back for more books.

Before You Meet Prince Charming

Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Mally is basically a book to guide young girls in a godly relationship. This book actually says that dating is a bad thing and really just points out all the bad things that can happen when you become too intimate with a boy. I would recommend this book for ages 10-12ish but no older. I am 14 and didn't enjoy it at all (sorry!). My opinion of dating didn't follow what this book had to say and I never actually finished this book. I suppose younger kids may actually learn something from it, and really, it is actually well written. What really bothered me about this book and made me not want to finish it, was the fact that the author was not married at the time, but yet was giving young girls a guide on how to find the one. (Basically she said wait until the man comes along and asks your father, and not to have guy friends- which, I have many guy friends and that made me rather wary.) Sarah Mally's way of giving advice was through a story about a young princess who lived in a good home and had great parents, but was being given wrong advice from an evil crocodile. So if you have a child 10-12ish yrs old you may consider this book, but I wouldn't advise making your older children read it. Stay tuned for more books!

Hello!!! It's been sooo long since I posted! What? Like 6 months? I know!!! Anyway... So have you ever read a series called Artemis Fowl? Well you should. They're now my fifth favorite series. (I have a lot of favorite series.) Artemis Fowl starts out descibing the life of a twelve year old Irish GENIUS named Artemis Fowl. (Obvious..) And goes on to tell how he discovers fairies! Yes I know. Weird. But it's good anyway. I can't really tell you any more with out giving away the whole thing. Not really. I just can't think of anything else to say. Ok. So go on now. READ!!!

The books in the picture above, are called "The Kingdom Keepers." These are now officially my new favorite books. A short summary about them would be:

Five kids are chosen to be DHIs (DHI stands for Disney Host Interactive, or Daylight Hologram Imaging.) in Disney's Magic Kingdom. At night, after they fall asleep, the kids are imported into the park in their dreams. Mission: Destroy secret organization Overtakers, a group of Disney characters come to life.

I know it sounds really weird, but these are (in my opinion) some of the best books ever!

A Thing or Two About a Blog I Follow

I was reading some entries on one of the blogs I follow and happened upon this entry:
Purple Mold Part I

The author of this blog is a fantastic writer. I definitely recommend reading this blog if you have any interest in good stories. This particular story is about purple mold. So a quick summary would be that a girl finds purple mold in her house and thinks it's a sign of destruction.

Anyway, I think you should read it. You can find part II at:
Purple Mold Part II

In my opinion, reading is the best pastime on the planet. Everyone says that reading can take you to a whole new world. No matter how lame that sounds, I must tell you, it's absolutely true. (If you have any imagination, of course.) The Merriam-Webster dictionary, definition of reading is as follows: to understand written language.
Reading is the base of all learning.
