Well, I expect you’re ready to hear how “What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours” was, but I didn’t end up reading it. I got about three pages in when I realized that maybe this was not a book for a 15-year-old girl (if you’re curious to find out why, just read the book yourself). Since it was a book of stories, I glanced at the others and didn’t find appeal in them either, so I picked a different book – a memoir about God’s grace.
The story of a blogger named Edie’s hard childhood and redeeming adulthood, this book was beautiful and moving. Edie went through so many difficult things in her life – dealing with an alcoholic father, a divorce, and depression – but she overcame it all through the love of her new husband and God. I’m very glad I read this book.
And now, onward!

I have to request it from the library, so it may take a little while for it to come in. Bear with me. I’ll read it as fast as I can when it comes.
In the mean time, while I wait for my next great read, maybe you’ll find yours in my novel, The King’s Decree, available on Amazon for only $10.00! (Subtle Promotion. :D)
