The Quarters

Youtube video of The QuartersBy Mari Bell

Ms. Bell did a wonderful job with “The Quarters”. The plot is written so that the reader wants to keep on reading. WARNING: The book is not the type you will want to read in the doctors’ waiting room? You may miss the appointment just to read “one” more page or finish the chapter.

The characters are wonderfully written.  I felt that they were part of my everyday world, they were so real.  Yes, even the con man!  I have been getting phone calls from scammers at home.  However, the book will play on all of your emotions as the reader gets to know the characters in the book.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book!  Great Job!

2015 Successes and Surprises

2015 was a very different kind of year for me.  The main reason that it was different was because of my word.  My word for this year was integrity.  I thought I had integrity, God showed me that I did not have the integrity a Christian should have in her daily life.

However, I did have some surprises and some successes.

Surprises for 2015

Successes for 2015

Those are my surprises and successes for 2015.  There may be more, maybe.  This is year I will choose a different word; it will be discipline.  It has the word line in the word.  The work will help me “get right with God” and become a better steward of my gifts.


Netgalley Reviews

This is the website where I receive e-books for the privilege of reviewing them for more badges. I am not being sarcastic, I have really received some good books. I have also become acquainted with some new authors. These authors have also been really nice about contacting me. The publishers have had their marketing directors email me directly so that I can receive advanced news of advanced copies.

Now I realize how well they have held up their end and this is the year that I am a woman of integrity. I will get through these book and raise my book review rate to 80%,

Thanks Netgalley for all of the great books! I will become a great reviewer.
