one minute book review-Confessions of a Prayer Slacker by Diane Moody

The Summary:

What I liked:

So there I was on Monday, realizing that I had a book review to put out in two days, and I wasn’t close to finishing any books that I had on my reading list! So in a scramble I started searching the web for novellas that I might quickly want to read so I could bring you a book review on time, and then frantically perusing my Kindle app. While doing that this book caught my eye, as I’d started it months ago, but never finished. And I wondered why, because this is a short little book.

Very good, Book Chick, but you still haven’t told us what you liked about it yet.

Well, I liked that it was short. And Ms. Moody had a good sense of humor and some good things to think about concerning prayer, but. . .

What I didn’t like:

This book wasn’t innovative. I was glad that I’d picked this up free, because all the things she talked about were things I had seen via Pinterest. This seems to have first been published in 2010, and I think then there wasn’t a glut of this kind of information on the internet, but if you’ve been thinking about your prayer life, you’ve probably seen this stuff before on various blogs and such.


I would recommend this to someone who wants to have a relationship with God, but maybe doesn’t know where to begin. Or someone looking for a short read that could be completed in a few hours, because it is fairly short, with a novella (or maybe an excerpt of a novel?) tagged on to the end. But if you’ve already thought about your prayer life, and maybe done a little bit of searching on how you can improve it, then this book may be a little bit boring for you.
