I am always up for a party! So when I came across The Ultimate Blog Party I figured I'd take a break from reading and writing about it (a second break as my last post was on a movie) and join in the fun.
My name is Marissa, and I love to read - I know you are shocked by that. Also I am a sinner who is eternally grateful for God's Grace.

This blog is a melting together of those two aspects of my life - God and a love of reading.
As a mother of two young boys I don't get a lot of time to read, and even less time to discuss the books I do read. However, as an English major, I can't give up reading, or a desire to talk about what I read, so I'm hoping you like to read and will join in my discussions. Maybe even give me some suggestions on great books?
Anyway, the point of this blog is simply to be a place for me to share my feelings on books I read (all the books on this blog I read because I want to, not because I have to).
Many of the books I read are from Christian authors, but not all.
Some are focused on teenage girls as I mentor High School girls through my church, and am always looking for great reading material for myself and them. (Great book for teenage girls)
As a mother to two young boys, I am on the lookout for books that might motivate me, and keep striving to be the best mommy I can be for them.Or books that I think I should be aware of so that I can discuss life topics and events with my boys as they (hopefully) grow into book lovers also. (In preparation of future discussions)
Great marriage book)
As as an avid reader, who enjoys escaping reality once in awhile, I read fiction that does just that, paints a picture that I can escape to in the few moments of quiet time I can steal for me. (Chick-Lit)
I would love for you to add my blog to your list of blogs to follow- sign up to receive my posts through email below - add my button to your own blog - comment below and I'll stop by your blog!
Can't wait for the discussions to begin.
