Sisterchicks on the Loose

a friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart,

loves you like a sister,

and provides a reality check when you're being a brat.

I finished the book this morning! Since having my third child, I really have not picked up a book unless it had to do with parenting or was a Bible study - I just did not think I had time for fiction. I decided that this summer, I was going to start making some time to read for fun and after hearing about this series I knew this is the one I was going to pick up first.

After reading the first chapter I knew I was going to like this book - it talked about travel - one of my favorite things to do. I noticed after the first day that I could not put the book down because I was enjoying reading about Sharon's and Penny's adventure. I think it is because I have always dreamed of taking yearly trips with friends. Maybe someday I too will be having travel adventures with a friend (or friends).

I enjoyed seeing how God used this trip to change things in each of their lives. I giggled and even felt sad for the characters at times. These women are older than me - so I was not sure at first if I would relate to their lives. I caught myself learning from their mistakes and victories as mothers and wives. While reading I would take mental notes - "I want to do that better" or "Remember this because it will be you in a couple of years". I think this is a wonderful book and recommend it! Thanks Amber for your recommendation.

While reading Chapter 5 I had an idea - when I finish this why don't I give my copy away? So that is just what I am doing! If you are interested in reading this series, leave me a comment and on Thursday I will pick a winner. Maybe the winner will want to pass the copy along to someone else after they are done!? :o)

I'm in! Now that you AND Amber have read them, I must jump on the bandwagon!

And what a great idea to read a book then give it away! You're a smart girl!

obviously, I don't need to be entered in the contest, but I wanted to say how very very much I am glad you liked this book!

I love the idea of passing books on! I think I'll do that with some of the books I'm working on this summer- I have GOT to stop keeping them ALL!

What a great idea to pass on books. I need to branch out from Karen Kingsbury I guess!

I am so glad you liked it. I am still in lubbock and was looking for a good book! I will have to go and check them out.
OHHH we stopped by the Slaton Bakery and got thumbprints and sugar cookies on the way into town. The kids loved it... :*) We are going to be in McKInney Friday night ( I am going to have to bust a move to get home in time) and then all day Saturday for Ashtyn's soccer tournament. Ash has a game at 1145 and 5. Will you be around? We will have lots of time to kill between games and I know Nathan would rather me NOT go shopping LOL! Let me know if you are intersted in meeting somewhere.

Hey, what a good idea...passing it along after you're done reading it.
If I win, I think I'll do the same thing!
