Coloring Book Review: Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit




Do you enjoy coloring? Since I was a child, I have always loved to color. When I was young, that was one of my favorite things to do. I can remember staying up all night with my best friend, and we would spend hours coloring. Back then, I used crayons, but now I like to color with colored pencils. And I'm very happy to say that my 9-year-old daughter likes to color with me!

Several weeks ago, I won a copy of a new coloring book called Inkspirations Fruit of the Spirit with original art by Lorrie Bennett. The book is filled with inspirational quotes from scripture paired with beautiful pictures to color.

The book is set up as two-page spreads, but M and I picked individual pictures that we liked, rather than coloring the two pages together. I will admit that we are not a very religious family, but I plan to have M color some of these as gifts for family and friends who are. They really are beautiful ~ both the sayings and the pictures.

I've shared few pictures that M and I colored. She colored the LOVE picture and the forest scene, while I colored the hot air balloon. I love patterns like that, and she is obviously drawn to animals. It was so nice to spend some time with my little girl coloring. I'm hopeful that "adult" coloring books like this will allow us to continue this tradition for many years.

Banned Books Week: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park

This is the end of Banned Books Week and unfortunately, I haven't had a lot of time to write about banned books this year. But I did want to include at least one post about it, so today I wanted to share one of the book series that it seems most people are surprised to find on the list: Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park.

According to Wikipedia:
The Junie B. Jones series came in at #71 on the American Library Association's list of the Top 100 Banned or Challenged Books from 2000-2009. Reasons cited are poor social values taught by the books and Junie B. Jones not being considered a good role model due to her mouthiness and bad spelling/grammar. This is an interesting example of a banned book. Many times there are serious, controversial topics featured in books that are challenged. Things like homosexuality, drugs, vulgar language, etc. You can actually understand why people may not want their children to read those books, and why they may challenge their inclusion in school libra…

April Reading Review

Where exactly did April go? I swear it was just the middle of March and now it's May. Once again, I'm going to provide a quick review of each of the books I read last month. For the last two weeks of the month, I participated in the Spring Into Horror Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. The only rule was that you had to read at least one book that was horror, thriller, etc. I read one book that qualified. With the exception of the first book in my list, the books I mention below were read during the readathon


My book club's May selection was Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson. I had started reading this nonfiction book about the author's work representing men, women and children who were on death row in March but finished the book in April. This is an eye-opening story that everyone at my book club discussion agreed should be required reading for law schools and police officers and even legislators who are making the laws related to judgements. I learned to…

Book Review: The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas

Tessa Lowell left Fayette, Pennsylvania, when she was just 9 years old, moving to Florida with her grandmother. Now she's a recent high school graduate and heading back to town to say goodbye to her dying father. With no family in town anymore, Tessa stays with the family of her former friend Callie, which is pretty awkward since she and Callie haven't spoken since they were little. Being with Callie also brings up questions that Tessa has held onto for the years since she's been gone. Questions about the testimony the young girls gave that sent a man to death row. 

I don't read many young adult novels, but The Darkest Corners by Kara Thomas was touted as "the next twisted psychological thriller," so I decided to give it a try... and I'm glad I did. While the story moves r…
