Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I absolutely love all kinds of books, so this is a very difficult question for me to attempt to answer, but I will try. My favorite book of all time is "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen. It is smart and the characters are imperfect, which I love. Number two would have to be "The Great Divorce" by C.S. Lewis which is I feel like is a book where Religious Fiction and Science Fiction meet and converge in such an interesting way. Third on my list has to be "How I Know God Answers Prayer" by Rosalind Goforth. I read that book when I am in serious need of encouragement. My addiction to Science Fiction compels me to pick "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley as my fourth favorite, who was so far ahead of his time. I also love "Absolute Surrender" by Andrew Murray, this is a classic, but a new favorite for me personally. My favorite living book (and the only one of its kind) is the Bible.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly Science Fiction and Contemporary Christian Fiction.

Smashwords book reviews by Kristin Spencer

  • Spring Thaw on April 18, 2016

    Imagine you have been through unbearable grief, and have to start your life over again from nothing. That is the position that Selena, the protagonist from Spring Thaw, finds herself in. This is the sweet story of forgiveness and restoration amongst the scars that bitterness and anger have a tendency to penetrate into our hearts. Follow Dirk, Selena, and Dirk’s young son Wade, as they try to figure out who Jesus is, what His forgiveness means for their lives personally, and how God can use even the most difficult times in our lives to prepare us to serve Him in the future. I loved this book so much. It was well written, and there were times when I felt so strongly for each of the different characters. This book will make you laugh and cry. Thank you Tammy Fish, for all your diligence in writing this story. It is a wonderful novel that will encourage many. I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review on my book review blog.
  • Never Too Short To Save The World on May 27, 2016

    Terrance stole my heart from the beginning. His sense of justice and his appreciation for properly used, rich vocabulary made him my favorite. The other characters were also fun, and I loved getting to experience them through Terrance's eyes. This rag-tag group of defenders of the earth have their work cut out for them! I enjoyed reading about their adventures, and Terrance's hatred of stairs (they are evil, you may as well accept that now). The end was a real twist that I didn't expect. At all. To my delight, I was completely surprised.
