The Light in the Wound

Heart Breakingly Beautiful Book - Have you ever had to hide out in the bathroom to cry so your husband couldn't hear your sobs and think you have lost your mind. Well this girl did. This book I think I cried only a half a million times. Love triangles get me every time! [...]

Eight Goodbyes

I have so much love for this book. It is simple, yet exciting and exquisite. I thought nothing could overtake my love for In This Life, but Eight Goodbyes has done it. Tess and Simon are wonderfully rounded characters who have been brought to life through Christine’s words. [...]

In This Life

My heart is still knotted tightly minutes after marking this as "read". I was broken, shattered, but I became whole again. I was driven into a wild roller-coaster ride of emotions -- uncertain, confused, hurt, and overwhelmed with affections. [...]


Jade is a rockstar! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I began reading Insipid. Here’s this woman who was SO different from anything I have ever been….I wondered how I would relate to anything she was going through. Little did I know how much I would love this story.

His Wounded Light

Outstanding ending to a series! I enjoyed the debut novel written by Christine Brae, The Light in the Wound. It was intense, full of angst and felt authentic; I even gave it a 4.5 star rating. But to my delight, I was so very excited by the noticeable improvement found in the writing, voice and style in her newly published novel, His Wounded Light!

  • To say that it’s such an honor to be on the same page as these amazing authors is an understatement. So, NYC - here we come! I can’t wait to see everyone, especially that one on the right. #bookexpoamerica #bookexpo19 #vesuvianbooks #vesuvianmedia #livelikechristine
Repost from @natashaisabookjunkie using @RepostRegramApp - Thank you so much, Christine Brae, for this very special book and the beautiful note in it! ♥️ Coming on Aug 20, this is the story of a woman’s loss of self and purpose, and the journey she takes to find her way back, and I simply cannot wait to dive back into Christine’s heartfelt prose.

  • I’m going against my one IG post a day policy to show you this one! Today is Honors and Awards assembly. This guy has always pushed the envelope -  wore sneakers instead of dress shoes and he gave us a heart attack when we didn’t see him in the procession line. We thought he was pulled back because of his shoes...and his dad was ready to 😡! False alarm. He was on the other side. 😂😂😂 #graduation #honors #illinoisstatescholar #livelikechristine
  • Such an honor to speak at this year’s @vivawomen_chicago’s #BeBrilliant Conference. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing your words have inspired others. #livelikechristine #vivawomensconference #diversityandinclusion #career #leoburnettchicago
  • Kids. This is the look you get when first, your hair straightener is missing from your suitcase, next, you’re at the airport at 6:30 am for a flight back home and last, you’re in a cab rushing back to the office for a meeting. All in a span of 3 hours! Where’s the glamour in all this? #livelikechristine  #careergoals #thelife #reality #lucky
  • I’m so grateful to be signing with these amazing authors at this year’s Book Expo in NYC! And OMG. I can’t wait for you to have a signed ARC of my youngest baby. #theyearileft #newrelease #carinandmatias #summerread #livelikechristine #vesuvianbooks #vesuvianmedia #bookexpo2019 #booklovers #bookexpoamerica #bookexpo19 #bookexpo #librarians #publishersweekly #nyrightsfair
  • You guys! I can’t believe that in a little over two months, I’ll be going through my final book release! I am keeping this book close to my heart because it’s the end of my journey. And what a trip it’s been -  I can’t get over all the kindness and support I have received over the past few years. I’m not going to lie because not all the parts were good, but no matter what industry you’re in, always know that hard work never goes unrewarded. #livelikechristine #newrelease #romance #summerread #carinandmatias #theyearileft2019 #theyearileft #vesuvianbooks #vesuvianmedia #sparkbooks #anvilpublishing
