A Book Called You by Matthew Stephen Brown

A Book Called You JustRead Blog Tour

Welcome to the Blog Tour for A Book Called You by Matthew Stephen Brown, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!


A Book Called You
Title: A Book Called You 
Author: Matthew Stephen Brown 
Publisher: W Publishing / Thomas Nelson 
Release Date: October 5, 2021 
Genre: Christian Growth / Enneagram 

A biblically grounded Enneagram book that looks at the Enneagram numbers of people in the Bible so readers can discover more about themselves and gain specific wisdom about how and why they are uniquely made. 

Who am I? Everyone asks that question, no matter their age or status in life. If we truly are supposed to be real with others, shouldn’t that start with learning how to be real with ourselves? We think so. But we have to be willing to look inside and ask, "Okay, God, who am I? What is it that I don’t see about myself that you see?" A Book Called YOU will help us learn about who we are as individuals and how a biblical view of self-discovery can improve every part of our lives. 

Based on his widely successful teaching series "A Series Called You" and his personal experience using the Enneagram personality assessment tool in his marriage and other personal relationships, pastor Matt Brown offers a groundbreaking, entertaining, and heartfelt guide that highlights biblical truths alongside the Enneagram to help us better understand ourselves and how we relate to the people around us. 

My Thoughts:

This is a great book on the Enneagram from a Christian worldview. I’ve heard of the Enneagram before, but really knew very little about it. I love how in each chapter about the nine different types the author features a person from the Bible who likely had that personality type, it was really helpful, and it was great to see a study of God’s Word intertwined with a study of personality types. 

I’ll admit that I haven’t yet figured out which type I am, still working on it, and thinking I might not fit exactly in any one category, but this book taught me a lot about recognizing traits of the different types in people I know, so I know it will help me to understand them better. I definitely anticipate referencing back to this this book many times in the future. 

If you’re looking for a great Christian book about the Enneagram I definitely recommend A Book Called You!

Review: Life Flight by Lynette Eason!

5 Stars! 

Wow, wow, WOW! Life Flight is an AMAZING book, and I can’t even find words to express just how much I loved it! This book sucked me in with the first sentence and wouldn’t let go! I ended up staying up way too late to finish it, I can’t even remember the last time a book enthralled me so completely! Life Flight is by far the best romantic suspense book I’ve read in 2021!

Penny is amazing (she’s one of my favorite heroines of all time!) I love how smart, witty, kind, and compassionate she is. I also love that she’s definitely not a shrinking violet, she’s super tough, and is always ready, willing, and able to fight back against the bad guys, but at the same time she’s not too independent to ask for and accept help when needed. Plus, she has the COOLEST job as an EMS helicopter pilot! 

And, Holt, oh my stars! I love him so much, he is AH-MAZING, and he’s definitely high on my list of all time favorite heroes! No spoilers, but at one point in the book after Penny had a run in with a killer, Holt did something so sweet and tender that I completely swooned and my heart melted into a puddle! 

Lynette Eason’s books are one of my very favorite things and I’m always eagerly anticipating her next release! When I first learned that Life Flight would feature EMS, helicopters, and the FBI (three of my personal favorite story elements!) I think I may have squealed in excitement, and in that moment Life Flight became my most highly anticipated release of 2022! My expectations for a Lynette Eason book are always sky high, because I know what an amazing writer she is, and Life Flight not only met my expectations it exceeded them all! This book is INCREDIBLE, and not only is it one of my favorite reads of 2021, it is also one of my all time favorites by this author! I wish I could give it 10 stars! Fasten your seatbelt and prepare to take the flight of your life! You won’t be sorry you did! 

I seriously can’t recommend this book highly enough, it is everything I want in a romantic suspense, it’s packed with non-stop action and suspense, and I could not put it down! 

Yes, I know I’m gushing, but I don’t care, you’re just gonna have to deal with it, this book deserves all the praise! Life Flight absolutely and completely blew my mind, and I loved every single minute I spent reading it!

I’ll say it again, I loved absolutely everything about Life Flight, and I cannot wait to read Julianna’s story when it releases!
