What Would Jesus Post? by Brian D. Wassom: Book Review

Image
Hello again! I'm here today with another book review. I received a copy of  What Would Jesus Post? by Brian D. Wassom from BookLook Bloggers.


This book gives seven principles for how Christians should act on social media. These include think before you post, don't try to act like something you're not, guard your heart, don't be too distracted by social media, don't be a stumbling block for other people, be a peacemaker, and build genuine community. While this is aimed for a Christian audience, I think that these principles are ones that every person on social media should be following. 
The author's main points include thinking before you post and not bringing down other people. Is what you're about to say going to hurt anyone? Is this something that really needs to be shared? Think about what you're posting: is this appropriate for the people who are going to see it? Pretty common sense stuff that doesn't seem to be so common. He also says not to …

Hello everyone!
Today I am reviewing the book Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon, which I received from BookLook Bloggers. I was so excited to receive this book because I have seen many reviews on it and heard wonderful things about it. I couldn't wait to pick it up and start reading.
Doon is a fantasy novel that takes place in Scotland. The story follows two American girls who just graduated from high school named Veronica and Mackenna.

November Book Wrap-Up

Hello, there!
Unfortunately, I didn't get to read as much as I did last month, and I didn't stick to my TBR list at all. School has been keeping me insanely busy, and I've been knitting/crocheting a lot of Christmas gifts lately. Also, I was having some trouble getting into the two books that I'm currently reading. So, here's what I read in November.
The Amazing Book is Not on Fire by Dan Howell and Phil Lester- I found a signed copy of this book at Target and I am so excited! Dan and Phil touched my book! It's a very fun, quick read that I recommend for anyone who enjoys their YouTube videos. I gave this book 5/5 stars on Goodreads.Unconfessed by Yvette Christianse- This is a book that I had to read for one of my English classes. It's about a slave woman in South Africa who is sent to a prison. It deals with all of the injustices and bad things that happened to her. It was interesting and easy to get through, though I only gave it 2/5 stars.The Queen of Zo…
