The Newton Chronicles: Soldiers, Crystals, and Temples by Terry Overton is on tour with Celebrate Lit, January 7-20, 2023

The Newton Chronicles: Soldiers, Crystals and Temples intrigued me, so I signed up for the tour. A few days after the book came, my 9yo said “I want to learn more about Isaac Newton!” So we started this book, to get a taste. We learned a few things, had a ton of laughs, and every time I tried to stop reading, there was a very insistent “2 more chapters please!” so I’d call this an absolute win! Even the 4 year old sat still! Don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the post! About the Book Book: The … Read More

Gears and Steam "Christian Steampunk Books"

Today, we enter a whole new world. Some of the dangers are far too familiar. But some are very unique and creative. As much as I enjoyed being a guest to Skyworld, I’m not sure I would want to live there. I’ll admit that I didn’t know what ‘steampunk’ was until this book. But it’s pretty cool. Victorian culture, steam-powered advanced technology, and a fascination with science. And I must say, this author hit the ball out of the park with her Christian Steampunk books! Why Read Christian Steampunk Books? Christian Steampunk books explore a unique ‘what if’ that really … Read More

I have to admit I don’t, always, but I’m doing better. And the book we’re going to highlight today, well, it’s a ton of fun, but it will absolutely challenge you to stand up and act on some of your Biblical convictions. Putting your beliefs into real-world action, instead of just saying ‘yes, I believe that,’ it means actually demonstrating what’s in your heart. … Read More

Endangered Refuge

Endangered Refuge on tour with Celebrate Lit
