I’m constantly amazed by all of the talent out there. Here’s this week’s tribute to awesome posts and great writers:
“Annoying Encounters of the Literary Kind” by Anna at Anna’s Book Corner
“Let’s face it: when you read a lot, you’re going to meet some characters you love and others that you, well, don’t like so much. Sometimes you’re not supposed to like these characters; their irritating qualities are meant to prove a point or demonstrate the themes of the book. Then there are some characters that the author wanted you to like, but you just can’t.”
“Secrets and Spies” by Tom Tivnan at We Love This Book
*Review of Jennie Rooney’s Red Joan
“In 2005, octogenarian Joan Stanley gets a knock on her door and is whisked away to be interrogated by MI5, who accuse her of spying on Britain for Russia during the Second World War and the Cold War. Her high-flying, well-connected barrister son Nick arrives to defend this preposterous charge, but Joan soon reveals—in painful, shocking detail—that the accusation is true.”
“What Love is This?” by Lore at Sayable
“Love never ends: it wakes up every day determined to do it all over again.”
“Hotter Than All the Fifty Shades in the World” by Megan Hill at Christianity Today
“A marriage is not a fait accompli: Check it off the list and then go unclog the toilet. Rather, marriage is an ever-evolving challenge, and the tension created by meeting that challenge is the key to its passion—and its success.”
“On Losing a House” by Sarah Markley
“I can’t explain it but places do have power I think. Even if it’s as simple as what a place symbolizes to you, I now know with experience that a place can be good for a person or very bad for a person too.”
“Beware of Thinking Biblically” by Micah at Redemption Pictures
“The Bible is God’s word to us; it is true and trustworthy and beautiful and full of life. The Bible is never, ever wrong. But all too often, we are very, very wrong about it. We must never underestimate our own ability to think Biblically to terrible conclusions.”
