Weekend Reads

My first free in weekend in a while. This weekend I plan to work on my TBR pile. The book I am going to attempt to read the weekend is The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey.

I am a little concerned that I might not get through this book because it has been in my ibooks for a while and I just haven't hd a chance to get into it.
I think that I am also going through a reading slump which is probably a result of the schedule that I have been keeping over the last couple of weeks.

So what are you guys reading this weekend?

Book Review: Color Blind

Color Blind by Michelle Lindo-Rice is the first contemporary Christian novel that I have read. Loosely based on the story of Saul and the Prophet Ananias. The Story follows Saul Sweeterman, owner of a chain of auto dealerships. Sauls' daughter leaves home to marry an African-American man and Saul disowns her. A few years go by and Saul sees his daughter and her family on the street. In minutes a large truck is about to slam into them killing them all. Saul makes the decision to steer his vehicle into the path of the truck and save their family. Unfortunately not everyone was saved. His daughters husband was killed and Saul lost his vision. 

During his recuperation Saul is introduced to Annie, An African-American Physcial therapist, who doesn't allow him to sink into depression and works at bringing him to Christ. 

Overall this was a very good read. I was not aware that this was a Christian novel because it was not marketed as such, more as a romance. There were definitely strong romantic elements that are able to shine through because of the lack of sexual scenes. I throughly enjoyed this book.

I would rate this book 4/5 stars.

Weekend Reads

It is officially the start of Graduation Season. I have two cousins graduating from high school and I also have one graduating from College.... Awesome right!
Along with the family I have two friends that are graduating college as well, one with her Masters degree and the other with her second Bachelors degree. I think I can officially say that my friends are better than yours ( or maybe not).

So that being said I won't be doing a weekend reads this weekend because I will be driving all over the place to attend the first round of graduations.

Do you guys have anyone graduating and since I can't read this weekend what are you guys reading?
