The Secrets Beneath by Kathleen Fuller

I received a complimentary copy of this book through Thomas Nelsons BookSneeze program. I had never read an Amish fiction book before. I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It was a very fun read. It is a mystery, and it definitely kept me guessing. It is written for tweens and teens, but I still found it to be a delightful read. I plan on keeping this book around for my daughter to read when she gets a little older. It was a very clean, well told story. I also enjoyed learning a little more about the Amish way of life. All in all, it was a very fun book!

Run to Overcome by Meb Keflezighi

I recently received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House Publishers. I thought that the book sounded very interesting. I had hoped to learn more about Meb's life before he came to America, but found the information fascination. Meb is a true inspiration. He is an example of how if you are willing to work for it you can achieve anything. It is amazing to see the dedication and hard work that he is willing to put into being the best runner that he can. I also enjoyed learning about the culture Eritrea. I had never even heard of Eritrea before this book, and so found the information very interesting. I enjoyed this book very much, and would recommend it to anyone. Especially to anyone that enjoys running.
