Harbor's End

Shanyn Tomlison is a young woman who's come to the small Oregon town of Harbor's End with a secret. She's a world renowned horse woman, but she's come to this small town to die. She's told no one of her diagnosis, and she's come to this small town so that she can be anonymous as she's getting ready to die. Her horse, Magic, is stabled at a stable owned by Keith Ellington's family, and he's unsure just why Shanyn seems familiar to him. Shanyn thinks that he's nice, and it is nice to have a few friends to spend time with, still she's afraid of getting too involved with anyone when she knows that she will end up dying. But with Keith and his friend's friendship, soon Shanyn feels that she will maybe be able to beat the odds and live instead of die. But then the symptoms begin in earnest. Will Shanyn survive to be able to fall in love?

This is a really cute book. It's kind of predictable, but sometimes that's just what you need. The characters were cute, the plot was easy to follow. I was able to read this book fairly quickly, and sometimes that's just what you need too!

This is a book that I bought a few years ago, but didn't get around to reading until now.  

With Thanksgiving tomorrow, I hope that you all have a great day giving thanks and eating pie. I too will be enjoying it with my family, so I won't be posting about any books!

Blog Tour - Stu Stories: The Adventures of Dirt Clod and His Sidekick Bird Bones

About the book: Stu Sanderson is no ordinary eighth-grader. Not only is he seven feet tall, but he also vanishes into thin air, duels knights and ninjas, lifts the downtrodden, and woos the best-calved girl in school. Become a middle-grade legend with Stu and his sidekick, Bird Bones, on the journey of a lifetime in “Stu Stories.”

My review: This is a fun book written for middle grade boys. It doesn't seem as though there are all that many written for this group, so I always enjoy seeing new ones. 

I liked the way this one is written. Stu is who the book is about, but the way it's written is through the eyes of his friend, Bird Bones. That makes the things that happen to Stu even more funny because you don't know how the things happened. 

This book reminded me a little bit of "Sideways Stories from Wayside School," because it's a collection of several stories that kind of fit together to make a whole story, but they also stand on their own. I thought the stories…

Favorite Friday - Relative Race

Our family doesn't watch very much TV at all. Most of what we watch airs on BYUTV. We are big Studio C fans at our house. And this show, Relative Race is one of our very favorites. We recently re-watched the whole first season because the second season starts on Sunday and we couldn't wait! 

This show is a reality type show. There are 4 couples who start on one side of the country and race to the other side, meeting new relatives along the way. Last season they took their cell phones away very first thing and they had to use paper maps to get where they needed to go, which was sometimes a problem for all of the contestants. Anyway, each team is given a specific city to go to. They have to make it to the city, then take and send a selfie with a city sign. Once that happens they get a challenge to complete and then they are given their relative's address. Then...they have to spend the night with their relatives, which seems to me like it could be very awkward! But last season…

Changed Through His Grace

About the book: "Have you been changed by grace?" In this insightful book, Brad Wilcox explores this life-altering question in depth. Christians throughout the centuries have used grace to describe God's favor, goodwill, and love. However, grace is more than a description of God's attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. It is the help, power, and strength He offers as we choose to engage with Him in striving to attain those attributes. Grace is different from the Atonement. It is not Christ's suffering, death, and Resurrection. Rather, grace is the power that flows from those sacred moments. Grace is not a priesthood ordinance, but essential ordinances invite greater and greater endowments of grace into our lives. Grace is a divine gift, but like any gift, it must be received.

In this book, Brother Wilcox uses real-life stories and personal experiences to demonstrate how we c…
