On 3/9 Sela Young wrote: I just finished reading this book, and I haven’t decided exactly what I think of it. Overall, I guess I would say that I enjoyed it. I find that I enjoy historical fiction, especially well-written and well-researched historical fiction. So, let me tell you the things that I liked about it first before ... Good historical fiction!

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

Then Sings My Soul Book 3

On 1/11 Sela Young wrote: The first thing that you notice when you hold this book is the pages. They are thick, uneven in an antiqued sort of way. It’s comforting. Matches the theme of the book. I know each book in the series is like this, but I still like it :-) The sections in this book are The History of Hymnody, Do You ... Another fine addition to series

On 1/16 Sela Young wrote: I read the first one in this series, Invasion, and liked it enough to want to read the second one too. This one was a good sequel, and I’m hoping there’s more to come. The book picked up right where the other one left off, so I would definitely say read them in order. The plot was simple enough ... Fun and easy read

Aliens, conspiracy, comic books, yep, definitely teen sci-fi. This book was an easy read, but also had a lot of depth to the main characters and ... Excellent Teen Sci-Fi
