Top 10 Tuesday — Colorful Book Titles

4 Aug

This week’s Top 10 Tuesday challenge is to list books with colors in their titles. There are a lot more than I expected! I limited my list to books I have read or that reside on my TBR shelf (Kindle or actual), but the list is still really long 😉 .

Have you read any of these colorful titles?

Book Review: Downtown Green

9 Mar

When the highway bypass around Green opens with much fanfare, downtown dries up faster than cement on the roadway. Businesses close and the hospital becomes a clinic. While the road is progress to some, it seems to be leading Green toward a national trend–a town that is merely a shadow of itself.

With the town going backwards, Lois Barker Craig is determined to save Green while juggling life as a new mom and owner of The Green News-Item. But can her plan rescue the town from the path it’s on? And what about Dr. Kevin and her son, Mayor Eva, Coach Chris and other familiar Green faces? How does this affect them?

Author Judy Christie loves to help busy people slow down and enjoy each day more – in her series of novels about Green, Louisiana, and her Hurry Less Worry Less nonfiction books. Judy started her writing career as the editor of The Barret Banner in elementary school and has kept a journal since she was nine (and still has all of them). She likes strolling around flea markets, walking in the park near her North Louisiana home and visiting friends and family on her vintage green Kitchen Couch. Her most recent books are Downtown Green, fifth in the Green series, and “Hurry Less Worry Less for Moms.” For more information, see www.judychristie.com.

My Impressions:

I love small town stories.  I have not read one in a very long time — I just have not come across a book that has piqued my interest.  Until Downtown Green. Green is a small town in north Louisiana that is suffering from what a lot of small towns across the country are facing — a dying downtown.  Lois Barker Craig, owner of the local twice weekly newspaper loves her adopted hometown and the people who live there.  So she takes on the challenge of bringing Green back.  Not an easy task for a new mother, wife and business owner.  But Lois charges in full steam.

Green is filled with lovable residents.  But the town has had to face difficult challenges in the past, and more are one the horizon.  Change is inevitable, but Downtown Green portrays change as a chance to grow and grow up.  And just because Green is a small town, doesn’t mean big town problems like crime don’t show up.  But the residents of Green rally together to meet all that the world brings at them.

Downtown Green is a fun and faith-filled book.  And although it is the 5th(!) book in the Green series, I never once felt lost.  I  did, however, long to get to know the characters better, so I have the first couple of books in the series downloaded on my Kindle ready to go!  I now have another small town series to read!

Recommended.

(I received Downtown Green from Pump Up Your Book in exchange for a review. The opinions expressed are mine alone.)
