Review: “The Radium Girls” by Kate Moore

First, this review has been a long time coming. I read The Radium Girls months ago before it was published and have been meaning to write a review ever since. Between graduating, traveling, and life in general I just never got to sit down and write what this book deserves. Per usual, I'm now a… Continue reading Review: “The Radium Girls” by Kate Moore

Review: The Pioneer Woman Magazine

If you're not familiar with Ree Drummond you can find her promotional links at the bottom of this post. I have  a mildly obsessive love for Ree Drummond, otherwise known as the Pioneer Woman. I own all her cookbooks. I read her blog religiously. Her television show is among the few I actually watch. My… Continue reading Review: The Pioneer Woman Magazine

Review: “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr

In the spirit of complete honesty, let me admit that I did not at first enjoy this book. The first one hundred pages required endurance on my part as I found it difficult to really sink myself into the story. I do not blame the novel for this in any way. I actually attribute this… Continue reading Review: “All the Light We Cannot See” by Anthony Doerr

Review: “Walking To Listen” by Andrew Forsthoefel

I few months ago I went through a phase of fascination with the Appalachian Trail. The idea of walking 2,181 miles with nothing but your backpack and resilience was (and still is) kind of romantic in an incredibly awful sort of way. Reading and listening to the stories of individuals who had the initiative to… Continue reading Review: “Walking To Listen” by Andrew Forsthoefel

Review: The Curious Christian by Barnabas Piper

Faith is meant to lived loudly. It is meant to ask questions, seek out knowledge, and declare truth. It is meant to stand boldly not shirk quietly. It is meant to encompass the entirety of life and redeem it. Faith should not be kept in a box taken out only on Sunday mornings and it… Continue reading Review: The Curious Christian by Barnabas Piper

Review: “When Breath Becomes Air” by Paul Kalanithi

I never cry when I'm reading. In fact, reading is not an outwardly emotional activity for me. Even when reading some of the most tragic and the most beautiful literature produced by English, I do not cry. This book changed that. This book broke that because it broke me in a multitude of ways. I was… Continue reading Review: “When Breath Becomes Air” by Paul Kalanithi

Review: “Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith in God” by Anthony Le Donne

C.S.Lewis's Mere Christianity is considered a classic of Christian apologetics. Any young Christian seeking to understand the difficult, and often frightening, world of apologetics is almost guaranteed to have Lewis's work thrust upon them. In fact, very few Christians can honestly say that Mere Christianity has not been recommended to them at point. This is because Mere Christianity, like most of… Continue reading Review: “Near Christianity: How Journeys Along Jewish-Christian Borders Saved My Faith in God” by Anthony Le Donne
