No Holly for Christmas {Book Review}

No Holly for Christmas

Julie N Ford

So a while back I was able to read and share with you The Woman He Married which was a sweet book. And when the second book in the series became available I figured I would take the chance to check it out.

This book is certainly different, and you do not have to read the previous book in order to get what is going on... really they are two stand alone books from the same world. Which is nice, you do not have to worry about being sucked into a long series if you would rather not.



No Holly for Christmas a Book Review





Story Overview 


In No Holly for Christmas, Brian McAlister is struggling to find his way in life, now that his heart is truly broken over Josie's rejection.  So he agrees to take on a new case (he's a lawyer) and buries himself in his work.  Little does he know that this case will truly change his life.

Holly Cavanaugh Winter is recently widowed and now striving to provide for her girls through her job as a social worker.  While she enjoys her work, the life it is providing is not that life she is used to. It is wearing her down, and she is in no mood for the upcoming holiday season. When she somehow manages to get mixed up in a murder case her life is forever changed, and maybe not for the best...

Personal Likes

I enjoyed getting to see Brian again. While I certainly was not a Brian fan in the first book, I felt bad for him.  He seemed to always get the short end of all of life's situations.  He is certainly an interesting character - not really bad, not really good... very real. Which is the main reason why I keep picking up Ford's books - she has a way of writing realistic characters - people you might know.

I also appreciated the pace of the story... it felt like an actual event in someone's life... while they are extraordinary, to say the least, it was still believable enough.



No Holly for Christmas a Book Review


Personal Dislikes


I'm not a fan of the cliche nature of the book.  Nothing surprised me. I know that this is certainly set up for an audience of Hallmark-esque books and movies, but still...

There were some minor details thrown in near the end of the book that helped establish the plot more solidly but they should have been included earlier on to make the story flow better.  It's a minor thing that isn't really noticeable to many, but for the detailed oriented types, well it's something that editing needed to polish a bit.



Reading List Rating

Heart image of rating
I'm giving this book three hearts because it is exactly what I expected, but my expectations were not high... 






My Suggested Audience

I would certainly suggest this for fans of Ford - it lines up perfectly with her style and audience. If you are a fan of sweet romances that add in a little excitement in the plot, then you'll like this. I would imagine fans of Hallmark movies would love it... as well as those who enjoyed Castle.









"Just once she'd like to be with a man who possessed some semblance of a backbone." #NoHollyforChristmas @Reading_list1




Were you a Castle fan? Do you enjoy a little mystery to your stories? Have you read any of Ford's books?  Are you a fan?

I'd love to hear from you, please leave me a little note!

A Court of Thorns and Roses... A Sneak Peek

Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List! 



Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently





Current book:

A Court of Thorns and Roses

Sarah J Maas


A Sneak Peek of A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J Maas



Goodreads Summary:

When nineteen-year-old huntress Feyre kills a wolf in the woods, a beast-like creature arrives to demand retribution for it. Dragged to a treacherous magical land she only knows about from legends, Feyre discovers that her captor is not an animal, but Tamlin—one of the lethal, immortal faeries who once ruled their world.

As she dwells on his estate, her feelings for Tamlin transform from icy hostility into a fiery passion that burns through every lie and warning she's been told about the beautiful, dangerous world of the Fae. But an ancient, wicked shadow grows over the faerie lands, and Feyre must find a way to stop it . . . or doom Tamlin—and his world—forever.



Sneak Peek:

"Yet it was one thing to bandage his hand, to talk to him as if he wasn't a predator built to kill and destroy, but to reveal how little I truly knew, to let him see that part of me that was still a child, unfinished and raw... He face was unreadable." p 117







Initial Thoughts

Oh, this book... wow... I'll admit, it took me a few chapters to get into it, but Sarah J Maas is an excellent writer, so it wasn't that hard to get through the setup.  And wow... just wow.  If you are a fan of fairy tales, or love stories, or fantasy, I seriously recommend this book. And no, it is not a YA book.

Jesus Today... and Sarah Young...

Let's have a discussion...


Jesus Today a book review & discussion on Reading List





Have you seen some of the online articles about Jesus Calling and Sarah Young? Are you a fan? Or a skeptic?

I'm not sure I am a fan, but I enjoyed Jesus Calling when I went through it almost three years back, now. It was encouraging to see one woman's relationship with Jesus. I used it as an extra encouraging devotional for a period of my life when life was chaotic and I did not know how to calm it. It was not my only source of God's word. It was a devotional.

Then, after I had decided I enjoyed it, I came across many others saying how blasphemous Jesus Calling was, that all Christians needed to be wary of this new profit-seeking book. I started to pray, and question...



About the Book


So, this particular book, Jesus Today; Experience Hope in His Presence, is very similar to Jesus Calling. It is a daily devotional, with 150 different devotions to read. Each devotion is exactly as one would expect from a Sarah Young book - a couple of paragraphs of dialogue spoken through the concept of God's voice, followed by a few bible verses. And that is all there is to it. No questions, no further thinking points. 

There is a very sweet introduction to the book from Sarah where she shares her heart condition and mental state during which these particular devotions were written. It shares her process for writing this style. And how she does not claim to be God, but does remain that these are the points she hears from God while she prays. 

Why I Like It

Now, give me a moment to explain what I do like about these devotions. For so many new believers or young believers, the concept of conversational prayer is hard to grasp. The idea of a conversation, where one person talks and then listens as the other person talks, is familiar, but the idea of God having such a similar take on conversation is not quite understandable. And I get that because I struggle sometimes to sit and listen when there is no physical person sitting with me during my prayer times. So, as an example of how God speaks to one woman (Sarah Young, in this case) this is an excellent devotional. Readers can start to see how, while reading the Bible, God can weave more personal points to her.


Jesus Today a Book Review & Discussion Reading List



Why I am Cautious

So, if you are picking this book up as a devotional to help you dig deeper into your own prayer life, this is an excellent tool. If you are looking at this devotional as a way of replacing your prayer time, or bible time, think again. 

Yes, each person will have a personal relationship with God where He speaks to them and guides them... but do not allow someone else's connection to God be your ticket to understanding God. Just as when we have friends, each of us has a different relationship with that friend, so will God be different with each of us. He meets us where we are, and then journeys with us, which makes His conversations with us different and unique. 

I was reminded while preparing this review, and discussion, of when the disciples asked Jesus how to pray. And Jesus was very specific in how to pray. Yet, we know that is the starting point for prayer. It's our guideline to build from so that we can truly connect with God. We do not stay in the first step as believers, we grow and expand. If we can allow these books, this style of devotional prayer, to just be one example of how we can listen for God's voice through His Word, then this is a wonderful tool! 

The other thing I know, for sure, is that when God's word is pushed into this broken and hurting world, it heals. Even if false prophets and the like are speaking it, it is still God's word, and God's Word will never not produce fruit. Use this example to remember, only God is God, and God is still speaking, and He wants to speak to you! 

Places This Style of Prayer is Used and Not Questioned

While I was preparing I was reminded of the power of prayer in song. And there are so many contemporary and popular songs out there right now that also speak as though God is speaking to us. For many, these songs are powerful and helpful in leaning into God again. So, if you are looking for more reassurance of the truth of God's message, and can glean the different between people's interpretation versus the True Voice of God, check out these links. If you would rather not, then don't. But maybe, just maybe, we can be more compassionate, and allow this style to lead those who need to be led to God, and for those who only see these as a heretics warping of the Word, let it go.

The Shattered Vigil... A Sneak Peek

Welcome to Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List! 



Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently





Current book:

The Shattered Vigil

Patrick W Carr


Sneak Peek of The Shattered Vigil by Patrick W Carr on Reading List



Goodreads Summary:

Victory over the dark forces during the feast of Bas-solas should have guaranteed safety for the continent. Instead, Willet and the rest of the Vigil discover they've been outsmarted by those seeking to unleash the evil that inhabits the Darkwater. Jorgen, the member of the Vigil assigned to Frayel, has gone missing, and new attacks have struck at the six kingdoms' ability to defend themselves.

Just when the Vigil thought they had quenched the menace from their enemy in Collum, a new threat emerges: assassins hunting the Vigil, men and women who cannot be seen until it's too late. The orders of the church and the rulers of the kingdoms, fearing the loss of the Vigil's members altogether, have decided to take them into protective custody to safeguard their gift. On Pellin's orders, the Vigil scatters, leaving Willet to be taken prisoner by the church in Bunard.   
In the midst of this, Willet learns of the murder of an obscure nobleman's daughter by one of the unseen assassins. Now he must escape his imprisonment and brave the wrath of the church to find the killer in order to turn back this latest threat to the northern continent.



Sneak Peek:

"'Do not speak to me of what is possible when I have seen it with my own eyes! Do you think your solders can withstand a charge of gifted, King Rymark?"' pg 166-167







Initial Thoughts

I am so grateful that Carr is writing these epic fantasies.  While they are clearly Christian fiction, the audience is in now way limited to Christians, and for that reason, I recommend these books... to everyone, period.

The Shattered Vigil {A Guest Book Review}

The Shattered Vigil

Patrick W Carr

For those of you who have been around Reading List, you might remember a book I shared with you last January - The Shock of Night by Patrick Carr. I was excited because the writing was reminiscent of JRR Tolkien. It had been a while since I had picked up a well written, Epic/High Fantasy book, and the whole thing thrilled me.

Well, the second book in the series was recently released, and I was honored to receive a copy of it.  Now, while, I know most of you stop over to get my perspective on books, I thought, just this once, it might be fun to get my husband's point of view on a book. You see, these books are perfect for the men in your lives, because they are full of adventure and mystery that appeals to all, which is part of why the series reminds me of Tolkien.  So, just this once, will you allow my husband to share his thoughts on this book?  Let me know what you thought of the different perspective!




The Shattered Vigil by Patrick W Carr a book review on Reading List





Story Overview 


The kingdoms established by Patrick Carr in the first book of Darkwater Series have been shaken by the events of the last book. Allegiances are strained between the kings, queens, and the religious authorities. Evil lurks in the shadows looking to corrupt them all. Caught between these three vying parties is the Vigil and it's newest member, Willet Dura.


Personal Likes



One of the things that drives me to fall into the world an author creates is a sense of realism. The world has a sense of reality because the characters, specifically those in the Vigil, and those in the nobility of the kingdoms make decisions based on motives that are logical based on their understanding of the situations going on around them. 

The older members of the Vigil do not yet trust the newest member, Willet Dura, and for a good reason. He has a dark past that they cannot understand. They fear his dark past will allow the rampant evil that they have kept at bay until recently will provide their enemy a tool to use against them within the Vigil itself. 

I also greatly enjoyed the politics of move and counter-move employed by their nobles, regents, and church officials as they seek to protect or expand their personal power. The thinking behind actions is explained clearly so that readers without the understanding of the power struggle that goes on among such lofty members of society will understand why the characters undertake the actions they do and behave in the way they do publicly, and take on a different approach privately. 



The Shattered Vigil by Patrick W Carr a book review on Reading List


Personal Dislikes


There was very little to not like in this book. The author did a good job of reestablishing the world so a reader that skipped the first book of the series could pick it up and find it enjoyable. I personally was not a fan of the author's habit of switching back and forth from first person perspective, usually from the perspective of Willet Dura, to third person narration. I only noticed this after passing the halfway point in the book so it did not detract from the book in a significant way.



Reading List Rating


I enjoyed this book, so I'm going with four stars (hearts). It was not perfect, but it played with one of my favorite perspectives which is those of actions driven by logical, thought-out motivations for each character. Who someone is, what they know, and what they want or need to accomplish can drastically alter why they make the decision they make and the author did a great job of not just writing a compelling story with the right of mixture of action, introspection, mythology, and suspense.







My Suggested Audience

I think teenagers and adults alike will enjoy this book. Teenagers will enjoy this book from the perspective of the younger acolytes, or apprentices, as they don't always have all of the information within the story. Adults will enjoy the more nuanced elements of this book, namely the psychological aspects of motivation, power, and duty. I am an avid fan of the Game of Thrones series (book and show) and people who enjoy the series because of the politics of power and rich mythology will enjoy The Shattered Vigil. 

(If this series sounds even vaguely interesting, you might want to check out By Divine Right, a novella, that is free! The novella introduces you to Willet and this amazing new world.)






Wondering Questions to Consider

The concepts of hierarchy tend to get lost in today's society, as we strive for more equality (which is good). How do you deal with the hierarchy of characters in Epic Fantasy books? When should leaders exert more power for the betterment of the people, and when should they step back?




"Join or die? Thank you. No." #TheShatteredVigil @Reading_List1



Are you a High/Epic Fantasy fan? Are you a Tolkien fan? Do you and your husband ever read the same book just to talk about it later? 

I'd love to hear from you, please leave me a little note!

This blitz also includes a giveaway for a signed ROSEBLOOD poster and a mask courtesy of A.G. and Rockstar Book Tours. So if you’d like a chance to win, enter in the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this post.

Title: ROSEBLOOD
Author: A.G. Howard
Pub. Date: January 10, 2016
Publisher: Amulet Books
Pages: 432
Formats: Hardcover, paperback, eBook

In this modern day spin on Leroux’s gothic tale of unrequited love turned to madness, seventeen-year-old Rune Germain has a mysterious affliction linked to her operatic talent, and a horrifying mistake she’s trying to hide. Hoping creative direction will help her, Rune’s mother sends her to a French arts conservatory for her senior year, located in an opera house rumored to have ties to The Phantom of the Opera.

At RoseBlood, Rune secretly befriends the masked Thorn—an elusive violinist who not only guides her musical transformation through dreams that seem more real than reality itself but somehow knows who she is behind her own masks. As the two discover an otherworldly connection and a soul-deep romance blossoms, Thorn’s dark agenda comes to light and he’s forced to make a deadly choice: lead Rune to her destruction or face the wrath of the phantom who has haunted the opera house for a century, and is the only father he’s ever known.















About A.G. Howard

A.G. Howard was inspired to write SPLINTERED while working at a school library. She always wondered what would've happened had the subtle creepiness of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland taken center stage, and she hopes her darker and funkier tribute to Carroll will inspire readers to seek out the stories that won her heart as a child.

When she's not writing, A.G.'s pastimes are reading, rollerblading, gardening, and family vacations which often include impromptu side trips to 18th century graveyards or condemned schoolhouses to appease her overactive muse.
