LOTD || Books #4

Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Today's LOTD is slightly nerdy- books! I am a self confessed bookworm so I thought it might be nice to bring that into blogland a bit. Wednesday's LOTD can either be a book you have read and enjoyed or a book you plan to/would like to read.

Wednesday will always be : Books.


Today's book will definitely not be to everyone's taste as I suppose it is a 'religious' book, although that's not how I viewed it when I picked it up after a friend told me she read the whole thing in 3 days. 

'Heaven is for real' is the true account of a little boy who whilst in theatre, died, experienced heaven and was then resuscitated by doctors. You might well think the notion of this is a load of old rubbish, but as a believe in God and heaven myself, I found it both fascinating and comforting. 

I won't go on about it too much because I would hate to thrust my beliefs upon you but I thought it was a BRILLIANT read. I read the whole book in one night, found it easy to digest and have since lent it to several other people who also loved it.



Here is a snazzy little widget to take you straight to the book on Amazon, where you can find out more about it. If you don't like Amazon, it is stocked in lots of other places so do feel free to have a look around. 

If you would like to join in, simply copy and paste the image above (please link this blog with it), find your favourite book and share it with the world. Feel free to let us know in the comments if you have done this and we can all mooch about together!

Do you believe in heaven?  
(I realise that is a big question, of which we may all have different views and ask that we respect one an other in the comments x)

Toodlepip!

  7. oohh might try and get that one for a bit of holiday reading! I was brought up to be religious, but i kind of ignore all the bits i dont like... and make up bits i do... like i believe in heaven but i dont believe in hell at all because i think god would let everyone into heaven because he's a nice person... i used to think that rays of sunlight through trees and things was people/animals/bugs going to heaven x

  8. I've just had a really good look around your blog and I just wanted to tell you how impressed I am generally. I think your graphics, background and layout are very professional but still reflective of the girly, sweet identity you and your blog have. Having read your moving birth story (I'm due on Saturday!) I was inspired to update the links of my blog myself. I wish you continued, deserved success. What a positive, beautiful, hilarious woman you are. Thank you for brightening so many peoples' day! Hopefully, summer will cheer up for you and all of us soon! X

  12. II like to believe that heaven is real because it makes me feel better; it's like a comfort blanket. I have been reading a book called "Flowers in the attic" it is the first in a trilogy written by Virginia Andrews who sadly died and had to have someone else finish her books. But I would certainly recommend it to anyone especially a bookworm! :D I love your blog sooo much :) x

  19. Im going to look into this - sounds like a good book to read. I also believe in heaven and the thought that theres nothing there at the 'end' scares me a little - when i see people on TV talking about their near death experiences and the fact they saw a glimmer of something there it does help to comfort slightly and it fascinates me - i really really want to believe these people that claim they have experienced such things. Thanks Louise :) xx

  20. I love these types of books. I don't know if you have read the book 'elsewhere' but it has a similar theme whereby it is based around a girls experience of heaven or elsewhere as it is known after she is killed by a hit and run driver. I read it in about 2 nights and really got into it its def one of those books that leaves you thinking afterwards and is such a comfort. Especially to those like me that find the whole concept of death and the afterlife hard to digest.

  24. One of my favourite books!!! it just confirms it that heaven is for real and God is there and with us through everyday lives. A lady at my church gave the book to two of her friends at her office, they became christians and got baptised. Even people who aren't christian will enjoy this book!! God bless xxxx
