Your Love is a Symphony...

I absolutely love "Your Love is a Song" from Switchfoot's latest album, Hello Hurricane...It's so beautiful. The vocals, the music, and the lyrics.

"Your Love is a Song"

I hear you breathing in
another day begins

The stars are falling out
My dreams are fading now, fading out

I've been keeping my eyes wide open
I've been keeping my eyes wide open

Your love is a symphony
All around me
Running through me
Your love is a melody
Underneath me
Running to me

Your love is a song

The dawn is fire bright
Against the city lights

The clouds are glowing now
The moon is blacking out

I've been keeping my mind wide open
I've been keeping my mind wide open

Your love is a symphony
All around me
Running through me
Your love is a melody
Underneath me
Running to me

Your love is a song (X2)
Your love is strong

With my eyes wide open
I've got my eyes wide open
I've been keeping my hopes unbroken


Your love is a song
Your love is a remedy
Your love is a song

Want to take a listen?

God Bless our veterans...

Awesome, awesome song. I love it so much.
In the song, she sings "chaim". It means "life" in Hebrew, from my understanding. :)

Randomness Friday: Books A-Plently!

Welcome, welcome to my favorite day of the week- Friday!!!

Today I'm actually doing a topic for this week's post. (I know, right? How weird is that???)


But, first, allow me to extend a special welcome to AGoMC's latest follower... *drumroll*


Welcome, Sierra and thank you for joining! :)

So, my friend Buttercup commented on my last post on A Summer's Secret by Kathleen Fuller. You all have noticed my little notes at the bottoms of my review of books lately, right?

That's because I have joined two reviewing sites that lets bloggers keep the books they review in exchange for an honest, well written review.

Pretty cool, huh?

Here are the sites:
BookSneeze (Thomas Nelson Publishers)
Tyndale Media Center (Tyndale Publishers)

So, both are Christian and both are awesome. All sorts of books are on there- fiction, non-fiction, adult, kids, you name it. It's sort of like a grab bag, you have to be pretty fast to catch a good read. I've reviewed several books from each site, so I give it my stamp of safety approval.

However, I suggest you speak with your parents about this. As they send the books to your home, the sites ask for your full name and address. Only join if your parents say it's okay. I believe there is also an age limit somewhere, but I'm not sure.

Booksneeze also publishes your reviews on their site, allowing the name you provide to be published along with it. So the name you provide is up to you, mine is "Prism Book Reviews" as you can see if you click on the below button:
I review for BookSneeze

I've been finding several other sites recently, but have yet to be replied to. If I get a reply, I'll be sure to post about it on here.

Speaking of books to review, I recently received TWO new books from author Nancy Rue!

Pretty cool, huh? I think so, and I'll be reviewing them in the coming month.

Summer is almost here for me! I can barely hold the excitement in! My plans?

1. Reading a TON
2. Horseback riding for the first time in a long time!
3. College prep! (Eh, summer can't be too perfect)
4. A trip to...DISNEY WORLD!

Yeah, it's totally awesome. I can't wait! I've never been before.

Until Monday, y'all!

God Bless,

Review of A Summer Secret

A Summer Secret by Kathleen Fuller is a Christian juvenile mystery of an Amish girl, thirteen-year-old Mary Beth, who discovers a barn and makes it her own secret place, away from her bothersome brothers. She seeks a way to escape and journal and sketch, even though her parents forbid her to go near the barn. Little does she know the adventure to ensue when she find out that another person may know of the barn. A person with a huge secret.

This book follows in the recent trends of Amish Christian fiction. It's only natural for trends in adult fiction to move to children's fiction. I loved learning more about the culture of these unique people and seeing how it all worked. The author provides an outsider's view to the customs of the Amish people, and I enjoyed that. The description is vivid and the characters pure. Characters learned from their mistakes and sought to be better. This book is true wholesome fiction.

Some problems I had with this book was that I felt like there was no real mystery about it. Many of the points in the storyline were obvious, and I never really felt like I was on the edge of my seat about what would happen next. Many times the story seemed a bit dull and drawn out. I read the whole book through, but it was difficult.

All in all, I rate this book 3 stars out of 5. I also recommend it to anyone age 8 up.

Specifics (from
Price: $9.99
  • Paperback: 288 pages

There's So Many Modes of Reading...What To Choose?!

It's been a while since I did a poll!
The latest one is about ebooks, audio books, and good-ol'-fashioned paper books.

Which one do you prefer, and why?

Of course, I know we all have our reasons, but here are some of my views:

NOTE: Yes, I am an informed reviewer, as I have used all three of these modes of reading to a considerable degree. *feels vocabulary-ish* ;)


PRO: Hel-lo, people for hundreds of years have gotten along just fine with these educational wonders! It's classic, it's cool, and most of the time, it's not that expensive. You can't break a book into a million pieces if it's accidentally dropped on concrete! It's a form of entertainment you can take into schools and not be questioned about! You can put REAL bookmarks in REAL pages, bookmark different places, and actually SEE how far along in the book you are!

CON: Not so fun for late night readings, kind of bulky to tote around, and people can read over your shoulder. 


PRO: It's modern and sleek! You can own SO many books in one LITTLE device, and you don't have to run to the bookstore to get more! You can do late-night reading without all of the hassle of a flashlight and waking up others with that page-turning noise, and other can't very easily read what you are reading. (You know who those people are, the annoying read-over-your-shoulder folks. They're great people, just annoying =D) It's AMAZING for people on the go!

CON: One time whopping price for the digital reader or iTouch/iPhone. Note so good for bookmarking, seeing how far you are in a book, and electronic devices can strain your eyes. 


PRO: Okay, you don't even need to READ on this one! Pop in your earbuds, and soak in an adventure. You can listen to a story while doing anything, walking your dog, writing an assignment, dude, even while reading other books! It's SUPER awesome for a road trip with the family. You can take and adventure while listening to one!

CON: Yeah, though I put it into the pro as I joke, I have to admit it's really hard to do other things while listening to an audio book. You just have to sit down in a dark little corner, shut your eyes to the world, and just listen. (Again, joke here, but it is really hard to do other things and listen!) I have found audio books to be my least favorite mode of soaking in a story. The audio books also depends on not only the quality of the book itself, but also on the sound quality and narrator's expertise.

So... school is beginning to wrap up, and I'm getting Superdeeduper excited. (You when I'm excited when I bring myself low enough to say 'superdeeduper'... I have a little sister, people. Yes, I've watched Barney with her before)

Anyways, summer lag is beginning to catch up with me. I'm still trying to go full throttle with all of the work and stuff, but I feel like I'm running out of steam. It's somewhat frustrating.
However, I'll be a good girl and behave... ;)

Here's to the remaining days of the school year!

Now, I have come to compile a somewhat little list of a few of my favorite sites (ranging from anything to anything)
1. All of my follower's blogs

Well, that's it! =)
