Sparkly Green Earrings Book Review

I love to read. Much more than I love to write. That's probably why I'm not a good blogger - I'd rather read other blogs. Case in point - Big Mama. Even more awesome, she's coming out with a book. And guess who got her hands on an advance copy of the book to read and review? Why yes, yours truly.

Melanie Shankle, author of the largely popular Big Mama blog, extends her voice beyond the blog world with her debut book, Sparkly Green Earrings. In her tale of life, motherhood, and letting go, Melanie's stories reach into the heart of every woman, whether she is already a mother, about to be one, or dreams of one day becoming one.

Melanie has written the type of book that makes you feel like you're sitting next to your best friend, sipping on coffee and sharing about life. She's warm. She's inviting. She's hilarious. And you will catch yourself more than once exclaiming, "Me too!"

Wanna know more? Check out the official review on Faith Village. February is a long time to wait for this book, but you should get it, because it's really, really good.

I've never heard of that blog, but the book does sound good! BTW, your comment "Captcha" thing kept tripping me up, took me three tries to leave a comment. Just FYI in case you had been debating disabling it... :)

Oh my goodness THANK YOU!! I seriously thought I turned that silly thing off ages ago, and since no one has said anything I didn't assume otherwise.
