One of my favorite things about this new found world of blogging is looking for other blogs that interest me. A couple I have found give suggestions and book reviews for clean books. I have read a couple of books that I found on those blogs and I figured since I always love a good suggestion for a book to read, so might some of you!
The first book I read is called "Its a Mall World After All" by Janette Rallison. Yes, I know the title is a little cheesy and it really does give good insight to what kind of book it is. It is definitely a fluff book. There are no deep moral of the story kind of moments in it and it is all about high school and malls, but there is no questionable material in it and it is very cleverly written. It is a very quick and entertaining read. I would recommend this book to someone looking for a no-brainer book. Sometimes you need that kind of book after a long week of school or just a long week.
The second book I read was "For Freedom" by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. It is a fictional story based on a true story about a girl who becomes a French spy during World War II. The beginning is really sad and I almost stopped reading it because I wasn't in the mood for sad, but lucky for me I plugged through it. It is a really good story, although the writing isn't the best. I kind of felt like I was reading a translation into English or an abridged version. Everything seemed really simplified and kind of awkward. Once I got past the writing style I really started to enjoy the book and once I found out that it was based on a real life story, I was even more impressed. Just like the last book, it was very clean. This book takes a little more concentration than the last one, but it is still a very quick read. I read it in a couple of hours.
Well I hope some of you enjoy these reviews and if you want the links to some clean book blogs, they are on the left under "Other Blogs". If anyone else out there knows of any good clean books, then pass along the info!
