Five Books for Teenage Girls (And All Other Girls, Really)

I haven’t ever done one of these before, but there’s a first for everything. Today I’m sharing five of my favorite books I would recommend to teenage girls (around ages 13-16). I hope you enjoy, and maybe, find a good book to read… and let’s be honest, these books are really good for any girl. Young and old alike will find comfort (and sometimes conviction…) and enjoyment in these classics.

Interview with Ray Rhodes Jr. {The Prince of Preachers, Ordinary Faithfulness, and What We Owe to the Lady Who Gave Away Books}

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of reviewing the book Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon. It was easily one of the best biographies I have read in quite some time. You can read my review for it here. Today, I am honored to have the author, Dr. Ray Rhodes Jr. join me to talk about the book, Charles and Susannah, and what their legacy means for Christians today. I hope and pray it is as encouraging to you, as it was to me!

{Book Review} Susie: The Life and Legacy of Susannah Spurgeon

“God knows all our wickedness. He has seen all our waywardness; yet His purpose towards us is one of healing and pardon, and not of anger and putting away.”

Susannah Spurgeon

About the book…

Many know and admire the man behind the name Charles Spurgeon, but few have had the sweet pleasure of hearing the story of the woman, who was constantly by his side, Susannah Spurgeon. Ray Rhodes has expertly researched and documented the life of the Prince of Preachers steady and delightful wife. This biography is the engaging, yet factual, story of the woman who captured Spurgeon’s heart and steadied his mind.

{Book Review} The Monster in the Hollows

“It took a few days to realize the light was coming from her. She was shining it. Janner Igiby had changed her. He was gone, but he had left some of his gift behind.”

Monster in the Hollows

About the book…

The Wingfeather family, formerly known as the Igiby family, is tucked away temporarily in the Green Hollows, where the Fangs are more scarce and normalcy seems as though it might be attainable, even if only for a short time. Problems rise though, as evil becomes more than the Fangs, and a silent threat, greater than any they have encountered prior, grows right beneath their noses.

10 Favorite Books of 2018 and What’s Ahead in 2019

I’ve been reading through countless articles from fellow bloggers and book reviewers as to their top or favorite books from this year. Not necessarily ones that were published this year, but ones they read and loved. I didn’t start reviewing books until late summer, and by that point had already made my way through a significant chunk of my book pile for the year, so some of the titles listed may not have reviews yet.

Interview with Robin Jones Gunn {Christmas, Stories for Girls, and Mother-Daughter Connections}

Hello, dear Robin! Thank you so much for joining me for an interview! It is such an honor! I first heard about your books through Hallmark Channel, when Erin Krakow from When Calls the Heart (one of my favorite shows) was in the movie Finding Father Christmas. We watched the movie, and then I checked out the book from the library and fell in love with it! Tell me, what was it like getting your book turned into a movie? Did you like how the characters were portrayed?

{Book Review} North! Or Be Eaten

Yer the High King, which means ye’ve got to start thinking of more than yerself.”

North! Or be eaten by Andrew Peterson

About the book…

The second installment of the literary and imaginative masterpiece: The Wingfeather Saga, the Igiby family has been forced to leave the quiet Glipwood Township and flee from the dreaded Fangs of Dang that are seeking the Lost Jewels of Anniera, which have turned out to be Janner, Tink, and Leeli themselves. Plans fail, tension grows, responsibilities are forsaken, and guilt wages a war on the strong. Can hope and loyalty survive the attacks, the separation, the fear, and the setbacks? Can the age old duties of the three royal children remain, and bring a glimmer of hope to the darkening world?
