Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival

It is that glorious season known as spring here in New Orleans.  It lasts for a month or so--after the cold is gone and before the real heat starts.  It is perfect weather for sitting on the patio with a good book,so guess what I've been doing?

I'd like to share some of my reads with you.  I enjoyed Dogwood, about the victims of an auto accident, but didn't like the ending. I absolutely loved, and definitely recommend Love Mercy.   The author, Lisa Samson, was baptized Catholic and remained Catholic at least long enough to make her first communion.  She then became a Protestant.  She is a novelist who writes Christian fiction and I've reviewed quite a few of her books. She recently reverted to Catholicism.  Love Mercy is partly the story of her spiritual journey and partly the story of a trip she and her daughter took to Swaziland.  I've got some more book reviews this week, and a children's book meme so have a look around while you are here.

What did you write about this week?  To participate in Sunday Snippets--A Catholic Carnival, go to your blog and create a post entitled Sunday Snippets--A Catholic carnival, and in it highlight one or more of  your posts from this week, including link(s) to the post(s).  In that post, also include a link to this post.  Then come back here and sign Mr. Linky, giving a link to your post.
