Christianity in Literature that DOES NOT SUCK.

I know that some Christian authors have the reputation to write boring books. They all end the same, or have the same types of plots. They are very honk if you love Jesus kind of stories. Let me tell you something about a Christian author I found that writes AMAZING books, that are far from boring and talk about real issues.

Melody Carlson is her name. My favorite book by her is called “Finding Alice.” It is about a girl with schizophrenia named Alice. Her whole life she was your average girl, then she hits her senior year in college and totally freaks out. She starts hearing voices, one in particular named Amelia. Amelia told Alice to do all of this crazy shit. You have to read it to really understand, this book is wild. I loved it. You can tell that the author researched schizophrenia hardcore before she put pen to paper. It’s nuts what happens to people’s minds.

If you have a loved one who does suffer from this disease, this book will for real open your eyes to what they go through.

Nicholas Sparks.

I got the new Nicholas Sparks book, "The Lucky One" before it came out...
I just hope it doesn't piss me off like his last couple of books.


I haven't actually read a book worth reading in about a month. Lately, I've been dying to call these authors and demand they give me these wasted hours of my life back.

Barefoot by Elin Hilderbrand was a breath of fresh air my friends. It was unlike any book that I have read in the past few years. Yes, it had the typical love conflicts, people getting hurt...drama, drama, drama. It is like a 400 page book and I read it in two days, I couldn't put it down. There were different twists, and I honestly had no idea what the ending was going to be like until I got there. It was not predictable at all, and everyone who reads this book will appreciate that shit, for sure.

Three very different women, living together, in a very small house on Nantucket for the summer. All of them were completely screwed up. Lets just say it will make you feel like your life isn't that bad.

Read it, get lost in their world, you wont be disappointed.


Hey Everyone.

I am new to this whole blogging thing. I loveeee, love love to read, so I decided to start using a blog as a book review website so I can let you all know what books suck, and which ones KICK ASS (as my blog title states).

Since I read about a gazillion books a year, I thought it would be very good samaritan of me to let you all in on the good, bad and ugly in literature.

I will give you my honest opinion, without giving away too much of the actual book.
