Favorite posts are the hardest…

Day 23 – A picture of your favorite book

I have many. I like to read. Books are my favorite. However, because I needed to choose I took this approach–I thought about the book I go back to over and over again. I thought about the books I’ve read the most number of times, because I just enjoy reading them. They include The Good Earth by Pearl Buck, Two from Galilee by Marjorie Holmes, Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe, and our winner:

The Preservationist (or The Flood, as it’s also called) by David Maine. It’s not particularly hard read, but I find it highly entertaining. It’s a spin on Noah and the great flood, from the view of everyone involved–Noah, his wife, his sons, and their wives. The story is anything but typical–it’s bawdy, funny, and very real. It addresses all the feelings each party might have had given the ridiculous situation and explores the characters and their relationships in a very open and honest way. I love Noah as a cranky old man, and characters who didn’t have a voice (or even a name, enter The Wife) get a voice and reaction to the craziness of the world’s goings-on. The book goes from before the building of the ark all the way to trying to rebuild and repopulate the earth. I’m a big fan of historical fiction, and I’ve gotten teased because my usual books are too boring or too big. This one is neither. A fun, slightly crazy twist on a old classic. I highly recommend it.

I’m just Kris, and this is just my blog. Kristina Marina is a pet name my dad gave to me when I was young, and since he’s one of my favorite people in this whole big world, I hold it near and dear to my heart. Who is Kris? Kris is a real person, going through real life with real problems and real trials, holding onto a real faith, making real decisions and sometimes real mistakes, looking all the while for real answers, often wondering why she’s so really blessed when she really doesn’t deserve it. She doesn’t sugar coat things, but also knows that God is bigger than anything this big bad world has to offer, and that, my friends, is the key to keeping it real. In short, Kris is just a real person loving a real God. Kris makes no promises of content– this site may be introspective, irrelevant, highly personal, funny, or even a bit ridiculous. She may wax poetic, share a slice of her world with you (or a whole darn plate). She may try to be philosophical, and while she may prove to be insightful, she never expects to be profound. She will always try to be encouraging, even if it’s just for herself. Life is too short to wallow in the negative, so while things may get rough (they usually do at some point), she will always try to see the sunshine through the rain, the forest for the trees, the rainbow at the end of the storm or whatever other idiom gives you the warm fuzzies. Kris isn’t really sure what identity this new blog will take, but that’s the fun part. And no, Kris does not usually speak of herself in the third person.
