My Current Favorite

Do you ever see a book advertised online and think “Meh, I’ll give it a shot”? That was me with The Crescent Stone. Tyndale House advertised this book because they recently published its sequel, The Heartwood Crown. When I spotted it on Facebook I saw that it fit many of my criteria for trying a book. Namely: Does it have printed words? Check. Is it in English? Check. Would I be ashamed to tell my grandmother I’d read it? No. Check. Okay! I’ll try it!

What Will You Do If The Lights Go Out?

I’m a sucker for a good post-apocalyptic novel and The Light did not disappoint. The characters faced realistic problems and solved them in (mostly) realistic ways. I enjoyed the relationships that developed, and the reliance on faith and prayer to help guide them. This is the first book in The Light series, and I can see the author is going to have a lot of fun developing the storyline and characters further. I look forward to reading the rest of the books, but maybe I’d better wait until after #30inNovember!

It's My Party and I'll Read What I Want To

Yes, I am reading another Pride and Prejudice adaptation. It’s my birthday this month and I can read what I want to! (No, seriously, my 40th birthday is THIS week. I know, crazy, right? This seems like a good time to remind you that if I get 30 new email subscribers in November I will be sending out a prize package to someone on my email list. Know a book reader who needs new suggestions? Send them the link to my sign-up.)
