Book Review: Awakening by Stovall Weems

        "This will be your best year ever- IF it is your best year spiritually."  ~Stovall Weems
        Have you ever wished there was some kind of caffeine for your spiritual life? You know, something to wake it up, and propel it forward? In this awesome, easy to read book, Pastor Stovall Weems shows the keys to "Awakening" a slumbering spiritual life. He does this effortlessly, weaving together all the components of a alive, refreshing, and vibrant spiritual life. He shows you how to "de-junk" your spiritual system, cleansing and removing the toxins so that your life can be made more vibrant through fasting and praying.
     I absolutely loved this book! It is not a usual thing for me to find a book that I am willing to read through slowly, chewing and digesting the contents. I could not believe how great this book was! I agreed with all of Pastor Weems theology, and I believe I am going to do one of the fasts in the back of his book in a couple of weeks or so. Criticisms? The only one I could think of is that he hasn't written any more!(That I know of :) I absolutely loved this book, and I am going to have to read it again! I never knew what a grand effect fasting had on the human body. It was awesome!
     I would recommend this book to anyone, just so long as they can read! One thing that helped when I was reading this book was that I did not just read it straight through, I read a little bit every day until I finished. When reading this book, you would be best served to read it in small portions to start with. I highly encourage you to read it, and make sure to let me know if you do!

   By the way, Waterbrook Multonohmah gave me this book for free to review honestly.

Book Review: Peril In the Palace by Marianne Hering and Paul McCusker

     The Imagination Station lets you do many wondrous things, like going in to video games, going back in time to be a King, and the like. Oh! Did I mention trying to help your old cousin Albert get priceless treasures from different countries. Kind of important.When that happens you should probably call on your cousins Patrick and Beth. If you don't, then you could find yourself in perilous trouble including (but definitely not limited to), giant eagles, Jail, and Mongolian warriors capturing you. If that isn't enough adventure (which is hard to believe), you still have to save cousin Albert from evil Lord Darkthorn. Yep. Couldn't get much worse.

   To me, "Peril In The Palace" was a great book filled with intrigue, adventure, and suspense. I had never realized how deceitful the Shamans could be; tricking innocent people into the lie of . As an avid reader, I was able to read this book fairly quickly, which is a good thing. I adored the enormous amounts of suspense in this book, which is another reason I read the book so quickly. Overall, I believe this is a great book for all ages, and I will definitely recommend this to others.
