Thank you for stopping by my blog. Lately I have been reviewing books and haven't had as much time to scrap. Hopefully soon I'll get back to scrapping and creating some new files. Thank you for your patience. I have made files available at absolutely no charge. I do this for fun. I am learning the wonderful Make The Cut (MTC) program and trying to improve my skills. Most of the files have been created from free coloring sheets online. You will need MTC software in order to cut these files.

Still Life by Christa Parrish left me a little uncertain
about how I feel about this novel. It is a novel about Ada who was raised in a
strict, religious sect who married an outsider, Julian Goetz and a lady Katherine
who has a troubled marriage. I didn’t hate this book but it probably isn’t one
that I absolutely love either. It was just an okay read for me.
First, the description of the book doesn’t quite add up to
the story inside but it’s close.It was
a little misleading. I maybe expected something a little different. Ms. Parrish
wrote this book in a format that is a little different than most books that I
have read which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I kind of enjoyed the format.
The characters were pretty believable but it seemed there wasn’t much of a
connection made. It is almost as if the story includes too much information
trying to be crammed into one book. I would have probably enjoyed the book more
if I felt the characters connected with each other on a more personal level
Secondly, I felt heartbroken that such a weak woman lost so
much in such a short period of time. It was nice to be able to feel the
characters and follow them. I just wish their story was a little deeper and we
were allowed a deeper insight to their lives. I believe the concept of the
storyline is a good one. It needed to be pulled together just a little better.
I wish the ending had been a little more detailed and pulled
together. It was almost as if the book was made to end just a little too soon
and didn’t get a proper finish. It probably needed a prologue with the way it
ended. I would have liked to have seen Katherine and Ada to come together a
I’ve listed several negatives but the book still had its
good points. I read it pretty quickly and did enjoy the characters. The overall
plot was a good one and I did find myself wanting to keep reading it.
