Love Book Reviews? You'll Love This Move. (And the Literacy Musings Monday Linkup)

Do you love to read? I do! In the days before Kindles and the ability to buy books any time from the convenience of home, I may have been known to send my loving husband out at 10pm to find a book for me to read. Thankfully, my mother always had the equivalence of a book store in her house, so he could go shop at Mama's House of Books. Heaven forbid I be without a book to read.

In the past few years, I've not only been a crazy avid reader, I've also reviewed books- first at a blog named Leah's Good Reads and for the past two years at Good Books for the Journey. This year I'm doing something a little different. I'm combining my blogs and moving my book reviews here to As We Walk Along the Road.

Christian book reviews

"Why?" you may ask. The truth is that it's just too hard to keep up with two blogs. And most homeschool moms like to read, if you can find the time to. So I'm combining my two passions- homeschooling and reading- and moving my book reviews here.

Don't worry if you aren't a reader. My book reviews aren't going to show up in my main feed. Instead you can find the up there in the menu bar. See that word "Reviews"? Hover over it, and you'll see a menu for "Good Reads Book Reviews." If you love to read- and I hope you do- you can find all my book review there. (You can also type in the name of a book in my search bar to see if I have a review for it.)

So, there you go. If you love reading, there's more valuable content for you to look forward to. If you aren't a reader, don't worry. Your reading about all things homeschooling won't be interrupted.


Now it's time for the Literacy Musings Monday Linkup! (There's also a giveaway you don't want to miss!)

LMM Linkup

Linkup Rules:

  1. Include a link back or the blog hop button linked to this hop on your posts.
  2. Link up the urls to your posts not to your blog.
  3. Please remember this is a family-friendly linkup. Although we believe in the right for adults to read whatever they want to read, we prefer to read wholesome posts that feature literature that edify and uplift families. We reserve the right to delete any posts that are not family friendly. We love all kinds of literature and genres including family-friendly inspirational romances, fantasy, or science fiction. We do not welcome any posts that feature excessive violence, sexual content, or any cursing. This rule also applies to book review posts that feature books that are not family-friendly. These posts will be deleted without notice to the blogger or explanation. While we believe in the right for all adults to read whatever they want, we feel our linkup is for family-friendly posts only. Thank you for understanding.
  4. We also want to be loving community by supporting one another. Please make a point to do this this week! Visit the two posts before yours and at least one other blogger's post of your choice! I want to see lots of clicks on everyone's posts. Remember it is also nice to follow them on their social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook.
  5. Follow your hosts and co-hosts on their social media.
  6. Tweet about the link up too.


  1. Hi, thanks for all that you do for the linkup. ;) Like how you streamlined your blog. I had to too when I tried to keep up two blogs at a time. :)

    1. Yes. I hope this will make things better for everyone. People can find my book reviews more easily, and I only have one blog to keep up with. :-)

  2. I definitely love to read right alongside my boys while homeschooling.


Thanks for stopping by. I love comments or questions, so be sure to tell me what you think.
