About Me/Contact




My name is Maria Behar, and I am known as an inveterate bibliophile.  You might have visited my other blog, A Night's Dream of Books, which is dedicated mostly to YA paranormal romance and urban fantasy, although I also review other genres, including New Adult Fiction and adult fiction. 


This blog, MindSpirit Book Journeys, highlights my more intellectual, spiritual, self.  Through this medium, I review more serious genres such as Christian fiction, historical fiction, classics, literary fiction,  and science fiction. I also review nonfiction books that have not only piqued my curiosity, but have also stretched my intellectual, aesthetic, and spiritual horizons.  From time to time, I include articles/musings, as well.  The nonfiction topics covered are literary criticism, art, philosophy, history, biographies/memoirs, poetry, psychology (academic & self-help), theology, and general spirituality.

I have recently decided to review Regency Christmas romance novels on this blog, as well. That's because these novels are influenced by the work of Jane Austen, and besides, my YA readers are not interested in such books

I certainly hope you'll join me in this exciting reading adventure, contributing your thoughts on the topics and books I write about!

If you'd like to contact me, you may do so through my Twitter page. You will find the Twitter icon in this blog's sidebar. Please do NOT contact me with unsolicited promotional requests, such as review, interviews, etc. All such requests will be TOTALLY IGNORED. I am just too busy at present, and am unable to accommodate them. Thank you.
