Week End Wrap-Up (Jan. 3)

Hello everyone! We have come to the end of another exciting week! This is the Weekend Wrap-Up, inspired by Melanie at Christian Bookshelf Review. This is where I will tell you what I've read in the past week, what I'm currently reading, and what I plan to read in the week ahead. I might also share some interesting events from the past week!
Well folks, it's the beginning of a new year! I'm so excited for this year because I'm getting married! September will be here before I know it, and I'm thrilled to start this new chapter in my life. I'm also looking forward to a mission trip to Belize at the end of March. Unfortunately, this means I won't be blogging for 2 weeks, but I look forward to my first mission trip none the less!

I'm also looking for suggestions from you! I am thinking about changing my domain and blog name. I would love hearing your ideas and suggestions. Also, if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see me do with my blog, I welcome those as well. Since I am no longer in school, I can devote more time to making my blog better for my faithful readers!
What I've Read
Christmas in Apple Ridge View my review here!
Book Cover Bingo: This is an exciting game hosted by the Goodreads group, Christian Fiction Bloggers and it's been fun reading the books for the covers that have been called. I have been slack about putting my reviews for those books on my blog, so here they are!
For Book:
When Calls the Heart (Canadian West #1)When Calls the Heart by Janette Oke

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was sweetly amazing. I loved the characters, the story line, and the way the story flowed. It was simple, sweet, and hard to put down. Janette Oke is a wonderful writer. I liked how the author wove the message of trust and placing your life in God's hand expertly throughout the story without being overwhelming. Overall, this book didn't have a lot of action or adventure, but it's a sweet story and I would definitely recommend it.
For Mask:
Daughter of Silk (The Silk House, #1)Daughter of Silk by Linda Lee Chaikin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very dark, almost gothic style book. I loved the characters and the love story. I was very involved in Fabien and Rachelle's story. They are going to face major trials, from what the book hinted at. However, the plot was a little to dark for my tastes. I still enjoyed it and would like to read the other two books in the series at some point.
For Crown/Tiara:
A Kiss in TimeA Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was a fun, easy read. I really enjoyed the characters and the fast pace of the book. This modern retelling of the classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty was very well written and entertaining. I loved the book!

What I'm Currently Reading:
A Time to Love (Quilts of Lancaster County, #1)This is also for Book Cover Bingo for Quilt :)

What I Plan on Reading:
Long Trail Home (Texas Trails #3)

That about wraps it up! Hope you enjoyed!
