||Holly’s Heart|Kennedi||

Hey guys!! I’m back with a book review! Today we are reviewing…

Holly’s Heart~ Best Friend, Worst Enemy. Beverly Lewis.

This book was so good!! I really loved Holly’s point on being 13. I love the attitude Beverly gave Holly, and all the challenges she faces.

What the book was about.

This book was about Holly, her mom, best friend Andie, and the new boy at school – Jared.

Holly faces challenges, the divorce of her parents, and Jared, her first crush. But the problem is- Andie likes him too!! Will their first crush tear their 10 year friend ship apart, or will they realize who Jared really is?

Questionable Content

To be honest, there wasn’t much here. Holly did lie to her mom once, but other then that……nothing.

What I thought.

I thought this book was so amazing! It had nothing bad in it, and it was a Christian book! I will give this book 4.5/5 stars ⭐️

Just a reminder, this was my contemporary book for our giveaway challenge! If you have not yet signed up, the button to sign up is 2 or 3 posts down! I can’t wait to see who wins!!

I hope you enjoyed this post! Please give it a like and tell me what you thought in the comments!

**Hey guys! So I’m back with a book review! Today I’m doing 5 books so let’s get right into it!**

Four Seasons Of The Heart ❀️

I LOVED THIS SERIES!!! I was so sad when I finished them….I stayed up late, wanting to see what happened next! I already reviewed Once Upon A Summer (OUAS) so we’ll jump right into book #2- The Winds Of Autumn (TWOA.)

TWOA was an amazing book!! I think OUAS and TWOA were my favourites out of this series- THEY WERE SO GOOD! There was NOTHING bad in this book at all, and I loved Josh’s personality- (as I do in each of the books)- And his ways. This book wasn’t super sad, but it was bitter sweet. In conclusion, I LOVED IT. And this book deserves a 5/5 stars ⭐️.

Next was Winter is Not Forever (WINF)! I loved WINF, this book was SO SAD. I mean, there was some super happy things- and there was some super sad things too. I’d have to say this wasn’t my favourite out of the series, but it still was worth reading!! Think book gets a 4/5 stars for me!

Next is Springs Gentle Promise(SGP)! I just finished this book last night *sniffle* this book was so sad. And also, I was so sad the series was ending!! Janette, couldn’t you have made a series about his kids?! But, all good things have to come to an end at some point…right? *sob* I’d have to say this was my least favourite book out of the series. It got boring at some of its points, and it was sad. 4/5 stars.

I really loved this series! And I would re-read them, so yes, I did LOVE this series- so I definitely recommend it!!

WOW. Our challenge ends this week!! If you have not yet signed up the info is in a post down below this one, so you can go check it out!

This book would be in the historical section, or the your choice!

MY CLASSIC!

So, I had to do a classic for the challenge- SADLY, I had to study shakespeare for school- so guess what, I did a Shakespeare book! *sad sigh*

Let’s get right to it. Straight to the point people. I DISLIKED this book SO much. As far as I’m concerned, it was a stupid book. Sorry for the language, BUT, yes, I have to give his book 1/2 a star out of 5. Boo!

Sorry all you shakespeare fans, but I really didn’t like this book. I don’t even know what to say as a review except that I disliked (no…hated) this book. (I know hate is a strong word, so I’ll just say I strongly disliked it)!! So in my conclusion about this book- IT’S NOT WORTH READING!!

…….

Please

Hey guys!! Today I am reviewing….

An Untamed Land by Lauraine Snelling

I really liked this book. Ingeborg. She’s so amazing!! This book is sooo good, and Lauraine really did her research and put a heart-warming, bitter-sweet job at this book.

It is sad.

So sad. But, it’s also happy in its moment. Okay, let’s get on to the review!

What was the book about?

This book was about Ingeborg Bjorklund, her husband, Roald, and their toddler son- Thorliff. Along with Roald’s brother Carl and his wife Kaaren, they travel from Norway to Dakota Territory. Where they soon find that this land isn’t all that the article promised to be. Life is a struggle, and Ingeborg really doesn’t know if they can make it. Will they survive the long winter?

Questionable Content

There wasn’t too much here. There was some adult stuff, but nothing was in detail, making it a passable section.

My personal opinion.

I CAN’T WAIT TO READ THE NEXT BOOK. Although this book was SO sad, I found myself turning page after page late at night. Overall, this book is 4.5/5 stars. I loved the characters, even though Roald is sooo grouchy, he’s still a nice guy.

You can purchase this book HERE.

My TBR for the upcoming weeks…

So the books I’ll be reading (until I get Book #2 of the Red River Of The North Series) are….

The Winds of Autumn πŸ‚

β€’Janette Okeβ€’

Winter is Not Forever + Springs Gentle Promise

β€’Janette Okeβ€’

Holly’s Heart Collection 1

Hey guys! Victoria here today (finnnnally) I missed posting last week so here I am today with what I’m Currently Reading. Let’s get into the post! πŸ˜„

Christy Miller Volume One // Robin Jones Gunn

I just started rereading one of my favorite series ever with a sweet blogger friend of mine, Maddy and I am SUPER excited !! I’ve been wanting to read the series straight through for awhile so this was the perfect opportunity. πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

Taking Tuscany // Renee Riva

I just started it this morning after finishing Saving Sailor last night and I am SO excited! I am adoring this lovely series and all the characters. πŸ’•

The Bluebird and the Sparrow // Janette Oke

I’m a little over halfway through this and I had to take a little break from it yesterday (bc I was getting so frustrated at the characters…πŸ˜‚) but it’s good so far and i think it’s going to turn out well! I also love this cover. 😍

The Reapers Song // Lauraine Snelling

I haven’t picked up this since Thursday, since I got distracted with Saving Sailor, but I was really enjoying it and hopefully will finish it this week! Ingebore, Haaken, Karen and Lars are some of my favourites and i’m also loving Zeb and Katy…πŸ™ŒπŸΌ (I’m about 70% done)

The Lieutenant’s Bargain // Regina Jennings

Okay, last one! I’m actually listening and reading this one and I am LOVING it! it’s so good! I recently read and reviewed the first book, and eagerly snatched up this one, not sure what to expect. It’s so humorous and such a fun book! πŸ˜„
