Take One: a review

Take One is the first book in the 4th series by Karen Kingsbury. When I started reading the Redemption series 5 years ago, I was really into the books, so much that I couldn't concentrate on TV b/c I always needed to know what was going to happen in the books.

I have noticed a bit of predictability in the last books she has written, but her writing style keeps me coming back for more. I really enjoyed that in this series she has presented a new type of main character. Andi is a college freshman who has been raised as a very sheltered Christian. Now that she is at a public university she has alot of major life choices to make & she is beginning to break out of her parents' faith to figure out what she believes.

I like that she doesn't always make the right choices because I think it makes her character that much more believable. I was a bit hesitant to start this series because I was worried about the predictable "God will work it all out for good" attitude that all the main characters tend to have. Even though there is still a bit of that, there is also enough realness in other characters' questioning that it was an enjoyable read.

  1. Okay, couple things.. you've convinced me to pick up this new series by KK... I wasn't going to because while I've read each series faithfully, it was getting predictable, but I love it. Anyways, so thank you... I am also a book addict... Anyways, it was nice meeting you a little. My husband and I are in our 9th month of our first Lead Pastor experience, we served 8 years in children's/family ministry... anyways, as I was leaving your sight i am now extremely jealous, I think...
