How to be God's Little Princess was a cute book for girls. My little sisters "oohed" and "ahhed" when they saw the pretty pink book.
Walsh starts and ends the book with a little note for the girls telling them they're always God's little princess - even when they mess up or aren't always perfect. Then she launches into the royal tips for manners, etiquette and true beauty for princesses. The book is full of fun quizzes, "what's wrong with this picture?" activities, recipes, and craft ideas.
I thought it was a very cute book and my little sisters loved it. It was an easy read and entertaining for young girls. Definitely the perfect rule book for any of God's little princesses!
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Changed By Faith was a very good read. I loved all the stories about "broken" people who became saved and accepted Christ as their Lord and Savior. Lius wrote about many precious people who went through a lot before they got saved. He also wrote about faith, showing that we really live day to day on faith. "Faith is a part of our everyday lives" he wrote. I totally agree with that. He also had a very good argument to go along with it, explaining how we use faith everyday.
I thought it was a good book, but it isn't omg-that's-the-best-book-ever kind of book. It was just a good book. Bit I do think that the book really depends on the person. Someone who is struggling with faith might read this book and it could change their life. It all depends on who is reading it. As for me, I liked it, but didn't love it.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for review purposes from Tyndale House. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

The king is missing.
Hopes are failing across The Expanse. The forests, once beautiful, are now haunted and bloodthirsty. House Abascar's persecuted people risk their lives to journey through those predatory trees. They seek a mythic city - Abascar's last, best hope for refuge - where they might find the source of Auralia's colors.
They journey without their king. During a calamitous attempt to rescue some of his subjects from slavery, Cal-raven vanished.
But his helper, the ale boy, falling through a crack in the earth, has discovered a slender thread of hope in the dark. He will dare to lead a desperate company up the secret river.Meanwhile, with a dragon's help, the wandering mage Scharr ben Fray is uncovering history's biggest lie - a deception that only a miracle can repair
I've wanted to read Auralia's Colors for, like, years, but never got the book to read it. It was very confusing starting the series off by reading the fourth book, but pieces clicked together as I read further (I would recommend starting at book one!). I actually didn't know this book was a sequel to Auralia's Colors until I got it in the mail...surprise!
It was a great read for fantasy fans and the story was awesome and very descriptive. I loved all the names of the characters, who were, by the way, delightful and very real. The whole book definitely had a other-world feel to it.
Like I said, it was confusing and I didn't get into it as much because I hadn't read the three previous books, but I liked it. A great read for ages 12 and up!
