"Bloom: Me & God" by Samantha Hanni

About this book:

  “Between friends, school and family, life can get pretty crazy, right? There are many voices demanding your attention. Voices that tell you how to look, how to dress, who to be, what to believe in. And just as you figure out the look you want or the group you want to be a part of, the rules change, and you’re left once again to figure out where you fit in. How do you know which is the right voice or the right idea? How do you know which voice to listen to?
  As a young Christian, you need a daily dose of truth in all these areas and more in order to flourish and grow. What better way to accomplish this than with a fresh devotional book that talks about the issues that are important to you?”

{Ratings are lowered as ages grow higher due to content.}
While I’m not in the main target age (which is around age 10-ish), I found this to be a sweet devotional that had a few activities within it. I do have to say, though, that devotion #58 was my favorite…Philippians 4:8 is such a great verse! ;)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

About this book:

  From political danger to personal drama, life is about to get explosive...
  The legacy of literary icon Sherlock Holmes is alive and well in 1912 Canada, where best friends Merinda Herringford and Jem Watts continue to develop their skills as consulting detectives.

My personal Rating-
Hmmm. I did enjoy this book, it’s a neat book with interesting characters. The writing style is very different, though, so I have a hard time following along sometimes. I’m still not sold on any of the romance relationships between certain characters; I like them just fine separately, but am still getting used to a couple of them being married. ;)

See y’all on Friday with a new review!
