Purpose

Welcome to Great Books for God’s Girls! As a conservative Christian young lady, I know what a struggle it is to find godly reading material. This blog was started with the vision to make it a place where Christian girls could find reviews of excellent books to read!

As those who have read many of my reviews probably know, I am very specific about the types of books I read. I try to follow Philippians 4:8 and my parents’ rules as a guideline for books. Based on these things, I choose not to read books that contain romance, which, for me, includes just about any type of “boy/girl relationships”. At the beginning of my reviews, you’ll see a “Romance Content” category, in which I tell about any type of romance in the book.

I also am greatly disappointed when I find curse words or euphemisms in books, and thus it is very seldom that I review a book that has those things in it. (If I do, I try to make that clear in my review.) One other thing that you should know is that I personally only use the King James Bible. I try to let my readers know if a version other than the KJB is used in each book that I review.

Some genres that I enjoy are historical fiction, inspirational or biographical non-fiction, mystery and suspense, as well as contemporary fiction. The vast majority of the books that I read are unashamedly Christian, though I occasionally read books that give me insight into unbelievers’ viewpoints (usually recommended by my dad).

If you have any questions about my reading preferences or why I believe what I do, please feel free to contact me! I believe in being able “…to give an answer to every man that asketh [me] a reason of the hope that is in [me], with meekness and fear.” (I Peter 3:15)

Reviews or posts usually appear every other Monday. To see what I am planning on reviewing, you may check out the To Be Reviewed page.

I love to be given recommendations for good books! If you know of a book, author, or series that you think I would enjoy but I have not reviewed, please let me know via the contact form! (To see if I have reviewed a book on this blog, please check out the book review archives page.)

I have reviewed or recommended music and movies on this blog as well. Are you looking for godly music to listen to? Please click here! Would you like to watch a good movie? Please click here to see what movies I have reviewed!

Disclaimers:

Just because I recommend a certain book/author/musician/movie/producer does not mean that I agree with them 100% on everything. Please use discretion and biblical principles while reading books, watching movies, and listening to music that I (or anyone else!) have/has recommended.

Also, I haveΒ been notified that advertisements for the Book of Mormon have been showing up on this blog. I do not endorse the Book of Mormon/the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints; it is a cult. Please excuse any ads, but let me know if they are getting inappropriate (if you have a free blog through WordPress, they put ads up that they think are relevant on it :/ ). I may have to upgrade if I am told that inappropriate ads are showing up. Thanks for understanding!

    Hi!
    I love to read and I’m looking forward to some more Christian Book reviews! My fav. series are the Chronicles of Narnia, The Knights of Arrethtrae, and Return To the Canadian West. I have a Book Nook page on my blog that I ( try to) update monthly. I can’t wait to see some of your recommendations!
    Keep reading (and writing!) for Him!
