First Line Friday - September 22, 2017

It's Friday again! I hope you had a good week. My week went by very quickly. I spent a few days at the beach where I got some quality reading time.

My first line today is from True to You by Becky Wade.

First Line Friday - September 15, 2017

Happy Friday! I hope this finds you at the end of a great week. I am looking forward to a weekend with lots of reading.

My first line today is from The Pattern Artist by Nancy Moser. I think the historical details in this book are amazing! If you enjoy historical Christian romance, I recommend this book.

One of my reading friends, who rarely steers me wrong with with book recommendations (or advice about life), recommended Paige's Turn by Jennifer Peel. Once again, she was right.

First Line Fridays are Coming!

I am so excited to be joining a great group of bloggers for First Line Fridays! Every Friday this group posts the first line of a book on their blog and invites readers to share the first line of a book in the comments. It's a great way to learn about new books and authors. Check back on Friday morning for my first "first line"!

Going for a Test Read

Have you ever wanted to take a new author for a "test read" without committing the time to an entire novel? I'm finding that an increasing number of authors are releasing (often free in e-book format) novellas that are prequels to a series. I've been loving these novellas and adding the novels in their related series to my To Be Read list! Here are a few that I have read or recommend trying.

What Books Have You Reread?

In my recent post about Tackling the Fields, I mentioned that I am adding this to my "keeper shelf". I liked it so much that I want to reread it someday. It's just so hard to fit in "rereads" because there are so many books I haven't read yet that look so good! I have actually reread a few books over the years...multiple times! Here's my list:

Review: Just Right Romance by Dana Mentink

When I saw a fairy tale which included three dogs and was written by Dana Mentink, I immediately added it to my "to be read" list. Just Right Romance quickly went to the top of my reading list and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Summer Reading List

The weather is warm, school is out, and summer is (almost officially) here. That means afternoons spent by the pool with book in hand, staying up late because we keep thinking "just one more chapter", and lots of time browsing the local bookstore to increase our To Be Read piles, right? That's not how you can spend your summer? Well, me neither, but it sure would be nice if life took a reading break!

Review: An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter

What a wonderful book! An Elegant Facade is the second book in Kristi Ann Hunter's Hawthorne House series and it was wonderful to read. If only you could hear my happy sigh.

Pretty Covers!

I am always drawn to a pretty cover. I don't always read the book, but if I think the cover is pretty, I'll  definitely take a look. Pretty covers just make me happy. Well, books in general make me happy, but there's something special about a pretty cover.

Review: Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K. Vogt

I really enjoyed Almost Like Being in Love by Beth K. Vogt. The story was good and I was inspired by this book on a spiritual level.
