Non-fiction VS. Fiction

In years past I rarely got excited about reading a book that wasn't fictional. Recently though I have found some amazing devotionals that have made me look at non-fiction in a new light.

I love fiction. I have meet only a hand full of people who don't read fiction. What I love about fiction is that it takes you to a different place and time, and it shows you a different perspective.

Although I read more fiction than non-fiction, I think I like both about equally.

What about you?
Which do you like better-  Non-fiction or fiction?

Hi! I hope ya"ll are having a good week.

The reason why there are no pictures of book covers on my last two book reviews is because blogger won't let me upload any images onto my posts. I am trying to figure out how to fix it. As soon as I do I will put the images up.

Prom and Prejudice Book Review

Title: Prom and Prejudice

Author: Elizabeth Eulberg

Series: None

Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Pages: 231

Plot:     Lizzy Bennet is a student at the exclusive, all girls, Longbourn Academy. Lizzy is a music scholarship student, though, which means she has few friends among the rich and elite.
 At a social event Lizzy meets Will Darcy who goes to school at Pemberley, an all boys school across the street from Longbourn.
 Unlike the other Pemberly boys, Will seems different to Lizzy, until Will finds out Lizzy is a scholarship student. Will's pompous attitude makes Lizzy believe she will never find common ground with the rich. Can Prom change that?

What I liked about this book: It was a fun modern take on Pride and Prejudice.

What I didn't like about it: There is some innuendo. A guy tries to take advantage of two girls, but is stopped ( it doesn't go into much detail about it). There is one use of the word h*ll.

Would I recommend it? Yes. I already have recommended it to one of my friends.
