Max on Life-Max Lucado

We have questions. Child-like inquiries. And deep, heavy ones.
In more than twenty-five years of writing and ministry, Max Lucado has been the receiving line for thousands of such questions. The questions come in letters, e-mails, even on Dunkin Donuts napkins. In Max on Life he offers thoughtful answers to more than 150 of the most pressing questions on topics ranging from hope to hurt, from home to the hereafter.

The Making of the Review (Part One)

This is the beginning of a two-part series in which I'm going to try to explain to you guys how to start out a book blog.  Where I get the books you get books to review, what you should consider when reviewing, and in general, what happens to become a book review blogger.  Today I'm gonna focus on how you guys can get books to review, should you want to.

Song of the Ovulum-Bryan Davis

Song of the Ovulum is the first book in Bryan Davis' new series, Children of the Bard, which builds upon two past series, Dragons in our Midst, and Eye of the Oracle.  While it is helpful to read the other two series to get the maximum enjoyment out of this, I believe anyone can enjoy it nonetheless.

Song of the Ovulum follows two main sub-plots that work together to the conclusion.  Matt and Lauren are two sixteen-year-olds who begin to realize they have abilities that are unlike those of the normal human as they both find themselves in a strange prison that holds mysterious prisoners.  The second plot follows the story of Joran and Selah,  the children of Methuselah and grandchildren of Enoch as they travel through fascinating and dangerous lands in hopes to sometime escape the expansive prison they live in.

iShine Bible Review

This is my first time reviewing a Bible, so bear with me ;).  There are two versions, a girls version, and a guy's version (pictured below).   I'll be reviewing the special parts of the book, the cover, and general feel of the both editions.  With that in mind, here goes nothing...
Not actual cover

Cover and Quality:

The Bible itself is a lower quality leather that uses varying shades of blue and yellow for the guys and pink and white for the girls to create an appeal that attracts their target audience, pre-teens.  The size of the Bible is nice, it allows for you to throw it in a bag and bring it with you but also allows you to have a decent sized Bible for regular reading.  For a portable Bible it's nice, but personally I prefer a bigger sized Bible for my regular reading.  However, it feels nice and it could be just the thing some people would want.

Masters and Slayers-Bryan Davis

Bryan Davis is currently writing/releasing two separate yet closely intertwined series that relate to each other, yet have their own individual storyline's.  Masters and Slayers begins the storyline of the adult series while Starlighter begins the storyline for the young adult series.  So far I believe he has pulled off this stunt magnificently.
