three things about this book i dislike
- it's paperback
- it's from 2006
- it's in the Christian Fiction isle at the library.
ok, ok, ok, i can hear the WHATs? already. i forgot to tell you that i really can't stand most Christian fiction? oh, i'm sorry. it's not really all bad, in fact, some of my favorite books (Mark of the Lion series, by francine rivers ) are found in the Christian fiction isle. most, in my humble opinion are full of cheesy love stories and down right blasphemy.. so i steer clear of them.. usually.
so two days ago, i'm desperate for a book, i look behind the boss's desk, where we keep the brand new fresh outta the UPS truck not even checked in waiting to be processed books.. did i tell you it's my favorite place to be in the library? i love me new books.
i pick this book up, love the cover so easily i decide to read it. THEN, realized it's from the publisher Tommy Nelson..yes, it's a christian fiction book.
but the title is amazing
and the cover is awesome
and i'm currently not reading anything.
so why not??....
three things that i love about this author
- he's an incredible title writer.. it suggests you need to know why crickets cry. did you know they could?
- his characters are real people who are trying to live for God in a very real way among very difficult circumstances.
- the plot is engaging and made me feel for the characters. really feel.
i learned a ton about the human heart
it was, almost the perfect book.
yeah, it's still in the christian fiction isle.
