A book review and giveaway!



A few days ago in the mail I received a book that I had been interested in reviewing. This was a free copy I received from Writer's Lair Books so I could reveiw it and then post it on my blog to give away! That is right, one of you lucky blog readers is actually going to win this book!

The name of the book is "When A Woman Takes an Axe to a Wall" by Allegra Bennett.

First of all the title intrigued me. I wanted to know more, wanted to read the stories in this book. It is a collection of short stories from all different women. The stories are filled with women of courage and change. Women who held their heads high even when times were tough! Women who were not afraid to "take and axe to a wall."

I enjoyed so many of the stories and a couple of them even related to what I am going through right now with the process of starting my own business. So this was an excellent read at an excellent point in my life.

I encourage each of you to find your own copy if you do not win this one. The stories inside these pages will inspire you!

So how do you win?  Simply leave a comment below about why you think you would love to have your very own copy of this book!  And remember to spread the words to your friends as well!

Love the title of this book. I would like to win it because I like to read & it sounds interesting. I would give it to my mom to read when I was done because she's going through some life changes now & from the sounds of it I think it would help remind her of her own strengths.

I'd love to read this book, only because I'VE taken an axe to a wall.
Ok, not really, but I've had my own hard times, and got through them!
