5 Reasons I LOVE Dear Haiti, Love Alaine

Comments 11 Standard

Hey y’all! So it’s no secret that Dear Haiti, Love Alaine has been one of my favorite books this year. I’ve been trying to find more Haitian authors who write YA Contemporary and this one really hit the sweat spot. I’m taking part in Sammie’s Tour the World in 30 Books Blog Tour as a way of getting new books for her community’s library, and this is my contribution. I absolutely love this tour and I’m so happy that a whole new group of kids will have this book in hands reach soon enough.

Matching my Favorite Christian Bops to Books

Comments 5 Standard

Hey y’all! It’s been more than a month since my matching Gospel songs to books post and I’ve been racking my brain for follow ups. I have several in my drafts but this one popped into my head recently and I thought it’d be perfect for the next segment of this series.

In that first post, I talked about how Gospel music really helped me get through one of the darkest periods of my life. If you’ve ever been in the car with me, you know my radio stays tuned in to Christian stations. I even listen to my Christian Mix playlist to fall asleep. My faith is really important to me and it’s a major part of my lifestyle.

That being said, these aren’t necessarily “Christian books” that I’m matching the Christian bops too. They’re just books I really enjoyed that I can find myself matching these songs to in some form or another. I hope you enjoy this interesting and maybe even find a book or song that you want to check out.

When Dimple Met Rishi (Book Review)

Comments 9 Standard

Hey y’all! Time for another review. Look at me, actually reading books and whatnot. It must be something in the water.

I’m pretty sure this is the first book I’ve read by an Indian author. I remember when it first came out, I was going through a whole “I don’t like romances at all” phase so it just didn’t catch my eye back then. Now with my newfound need for ALL of the romances and the Indian Readathon going on, it was just the perfect time to finally pick up When Dimple Met Rishi.
