ArmchairBEA LogoExample_thumb[1]

 

Today is the first day of Armchair BEA and it is all about introductions.  We received some questions to introduce ourselves, so let’s get started:

 

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?

My name is Tiffany and I’ve been blogging for a few years. I got into blogging because I simply love to read and I wanted to share that with the world. I wanted to do my part to influence people to turn off the tv for a little bit and pick up a book!!! I currently live in Maryland.

 

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online. 

A place where books from all genres and authors are discussed!!!

What book would you love to see as a movie? 
I would love to see Fighting for Glory by Rickey Teems II as a movie.
Fighting for Glory by Rickey Teems II

Fighting for Glory by Rickey Teems II

Two words. Ten letters. It does not seem like enough to change lives but when a Persian woman yells “Allah Akbar!” and sets off a bomb it is more than enough. Do I have your attention now? Well, those two words definitely caught mine and that is how Rickey Teems II begins his latest novel, Fighting for Glory.

Fighting for Glory is like reading a book about current events: foreign and domestic terrorism, arguments in the Holy Land over which religion is the most authentic, and individuals curious if religion is even necessary. The story is mesmerizing and one that will have you on the edge of your seat with suspense as you try to figure out everyone’s connection to one another. Teems was quite imaginative yet authentic when writing about the mystery about the beginning of religion.

The topic of religion plays a major role in Fighting for Glory but it is not a preachy, faith-deciding book. Yes, it will make you think and possibly challenge some of your beliefs but that is what an excellent book is supposed to do. All of Teems’ previous books have done an exemplary job of intertwining entertainment, social issues, and religion but it is my belief that Fighting for Glory will be a game changer for this up and coming author!

Well, now it is time to get on the festivities for the rest of the week! I look forward to meeting so many new bloggers!!!

Comments

  1. Greetings, Tiffany! and, happy Armchair BEA! Love your Dr. Seuss book quote — that’s perfect for this week.

  2. Looks like your books are all a little older than I normally read, but I love the picture of the person reading! Hope you have fun with Armchair BEA.

    • Fighting For Glory was released on January 24, 2014 so it is a fairly new release. Thanks for your comment!

  3. You’re right – that first line of your review really made me super curious about that book! I’ve been seeking out more Middle Eastern literature lately; I will have to check this one out.

    Welcome to ABEA!

  4. That Dr. Seuss quote is fantastic!

    Enjoy Armchair BEA!

  5. Visiting your blog via ABEA; my YA mystery / thriller, FERAL, will release in August with HarperTeen.
