This Week On WORD up! June 16, 2008

There are some wonderful books being showcased on my blog this week.

Today, check out an excerpt from "Trion Rising" - a wonderful science fiction/fantasy read for teens (but I liked it, too). It asks the question: What if Christ visited a planet other than earth?

Tuesday features a wonderful interview with "The Summer of Cotton Candy" author, Debbie Viguie. If you missed the book preview on my blog last week, check that out as well.

Wednesday is a wonderful novel by bestselling author Angela Hunt. "She Always Wore Red" is the second title in the Fairlawn series that tells the story of Jennifer Graham, a single mom and new owner/operator of a funeral home. This book is fascinating, but gets rather in depth with the job duties of a funeral director/embalmer-in-training. I highly recommend it, but it's not for the squeamish.

Thursday showcases another author interview. Check out Sue Dent and her novel "Never Ceese" that we previewed on the blog last week.

Saturday features "Mixed Bags" - another teen chick lit novel by Melody Carlson. My daughter loved it so much, we had to run out and buy her the second in this new series.

Sunday previews a novel by one of my favorite authors, Mary Connealy. "Calico Canyon" promises to be an incredible read by this amazing author.

As always, please stop by, check out the reviews and leave comments about what you think. Peruse the blog archive for previously reviewed books, Bible studies and devotionals. Sign up for my weekly newsletter to be notified when new articles are posted automatically.
