Book Review Hiatus

I’ve maintained this blog for a few years now and posting book reviews on a somewhat consistent basis. The last while, I’ve noticed I don’t enjoy reading as much as I used to.

Because of this and a couple of personal reasons, I will be taking a break from posting on here. I am still on a street team for an author so I may pop every once and a while to post a review about their books, but for the most part, I won’t be posting reviews.

I’ll probably still read a book now and then during my free time but I’ll be taking it slower and won’t be critiquing them.

I’m not sure how long this break will last. I’ll take it a month at a time and see how I feel. I expect to come back at some point, but it may be more sporadic and/or look different in regards to genres.

Thank you for those who have read my reviews and I wish you all the best.


Case for Christ movie review

A hard-driving journalist, Lee Strobel was exactly where he expected to be at work: on top. His award-winning investigative reporting recently earned him a promotion to legal editor at the Chicago Tribune. But things weren’t going nearly as well at home where his wife Leslie’s newfound faith in Christ went against everything Lee believed—or didn’t believe—as an avowed atheist.

Utilizing his journalistic and legal training, Lee begins a quest to debunk the claims of Christianity in order to save his crumbling marriage. Chasing down the biggest story of his career, Lee comes face-to-face with unexpected results that could change everything he knows to be true.

Based on Lee Strobel’s award-winning bestselling book and starring Mike Vogel, Erika Christensen, Faye Dunaway, and Robert Forster. – from the movie’s website

When I first heard that they were making a movie based on the book Case for Christ by Lee Strobel, I was curious as to how they would do it because the book isn’t written in story format. I felt like they did a good job of taking the premise and evidences included in the book and incorporate them into a story that we could follow. It probably helped that Lee Strobel was a part of producing the film. I found some of aspects of the movie didn’t come across as authentic as I would have liked, like when his wife prayed for him and the choking scene at the beginning. I was pleased with how the movie turned out and how Strobel’s conversion was portrayed throughout the whole experience. I also appreciated them showing the problems Leslie’s conversion and Lee’s subsequent quest to disprove her faith caused in their marriage. I really liked that in the end he still had to have faith whichever path he chose because he couldn’t find proof to completely eradicate doubt. It asks you the question, what are you going to do with the proof you do have?


Welcome to The Librariosphere! This is a blog focused on books, libraries, and writing.

To start off, there will be two posts a month – one every two weeks.

I will try to do a variety of book reviews from different genres, but because of my own interests, there will probably be a lot from the contemporary romance, romantic suspense, historical fiction, suspense, and Christian fiction genres.

If there is a specific book or genre, please let me know and I’ll try to incorporate them into this blog.

I also plan to do interviews with authors, so if there is a specific author you want me to interview or questions you want me to ask authors, please contact me.
