NKJV Apply The Word Study Bible Review

Image
Hello again!
Today I'm here with another book review for a study Bible that I received from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers. This Bible is to be released March 8, 2016.

First of all, just upon first looking at the book, this is a really nice Bible. It's a hardcover book with a very pretty cover. The cover looks the same when you take the dust jacket off, and I personally love that, and the cover is super shiny and nice. The pages are so soft and sleek and feel nice in my hands, yet they're thick and sturdy enough that I don't feel like the page is going to tear when I flip it. It's organized really well and laid out nicely as well. Also, the words of Jesus are in red, which I really like to see.

The stories bored me quite a bit, and I really didn't have any attachment to any of the characters. The writing style was hard to get past. All of the sentences were short and choppy, and the author hardly used any pronouns and just repeated names over and over again, which got really annoying. I felt like I was reading something that a child…

January Wrap-Up/ February TBR

This year, I set my Goodreads reading goal for 100 books, which is a little crazy. I know I'm probably not going to make it to 100, but I'm really going to try. I'm okay with not reaching the goal, but that's what I want to work towards.
So far, I'm really happy with my reading this year. I read quite a bit in January since I wasn't working and I didn't start school again until the very end of the month.
