What books of hers have you read?

I think I have read most of them...wow, they are pretty meaty books.

I'm currently reading her March release, Embrace Me. It's quite good and there's one passage, actually one whole page that talks about how Christians today water down Jesus---wow--talk about hitting you in a sensitive spot. It really made me think and I'm still thinking about it.

I highly recommend you put this book on your wish list.

Straight Up was another one of hers that hit me fairly hard and made me think.

I've read Hollywood Nobody which was excellent by the way and did an interview with her on my blog just a couple weeks ago, you can check that out here if you want.  I have not read Embrace Me though and it sounds good - thanks!

I read Hollywood Nobody and am really anxious to read the sequel. She left a lot hanging!
