What Are You Reading?

A very brain-dead Mindy here. I guess I'm just not awake. So we're gonna keep things short today.

With my two year old granddaughter consuming much of my time, it's been a while since I've been able to sit down with a good read. Haven't even perused the shelves of the bookstore. What's new? What's good?

Which leads me to the question, what are you reading? Is it good? What's the best book you've read in that last six months? Enquiring minds really do want to know, so let's hear the reviews. And be sure to leave your email addy. On Friday I'll draw a name for a $10 Amazon or Barnes & Noble gift card.

  1. HI! Well, I just read Angel of Wrath by Bill Myers. I absolutely loved it. It's book Two...first one is The Voice. He's right up my alley, though. Supernatural/paranormal stuff.

    Great action scenes and fantastic writing. I'd say it's the best book I have read in the last six months.

    Hope you get some rest!

  4. "A Blue and Gray Christmas" is a novella written by Vickie McDonough, Lauralee Bliss, Tamela Handcock Murry and Carrie Turansky.
    Very good book. Kristy Dykes was supposed to write one of the stories but she passed away with cancer.

  5. In the last 30 days I've read two Mae Nunn books, The Texas Ranger's Family and A Lonestar Courtship---both very good, I've reread Twilight and I'm reading a book by Anna Destefano right now called Dark Legacy. Excellent!! As soon as I'm done with Dark Legace next on the list is rereading New Moon. I read those books so fast I need to read them all again.

  6. Oh, I'm also reading the Bible chronologically (spelling?) and as a church we are reading the New Testament in 70 days. I'm a little behind on the New Testament but have kept up with the other. I LOVE reading the Bible. So many interesting stories.

  7. I have read so many good books lately! I just finished finished "A Slow Burn" by Mary DeMuth and reviewed it on my blog. For a devotional: "Life Within the Veil" by a dear friend, Linda Jennings. Very uplifting and encouraging book!

    Thanks for a great topic!

  8. Hi,
    Here are a few that I thought were excellent. "Wildcard" by Robin Shope. A romantic suspense that you cannot put down. "The Christmas Edition" by Robin Shope. Not a suspense by has a mystery. "Love's Rescue" by Tammy Barley. A historical that you can't put down. "Compelled To Love A Stranger" by Teri Shaubaugh. Marriage of convenience story. Anything by MaryLu Tyndall or Julie Lessman is excellent too. Hope that's not too much. I love talking books.

    Have a great day.

  9. Wow! You ladies are just full of great ideas.

    Edwina, I have Slow Burn in my to-be-read pile.

    Lindi, I want to read Mae's Texas Ranger's Family.

    SherryK, if Wildcard is a RS that can't be put down, I'd better add that one to my list as well.

  10. I am in the middle of reading Brandilyn Collins' Exposure which is excellent so far.

    The best book I've read in the last six months was Mary Conneally's Cowboy Christmas. It's not my usual "genre", but once I opened it up, I couldn't put it down...literally. Love it when that happens...though I'm sure my family doesn't. :)

  11. I just finished reading Rita Gerlach's "Surrender the Wind" and now I'm in the middle of Golden Keye Parson's "Prisoner of Versailles". Both are great!

  12. I am reading several books. That's how I do it. Usually 5 or 6 at a time with at least 2 being non-fiction.

    My favorite book lately is The Pirate Hunter. It fit my mood as I polished my non-fiction book, Battle Your Pirates--And Win!

    Favorite all time books are Leota's Garden, Demon: A Memoir, and Havah: The story of Eve. Each one of these met me in a place and led me into another one.

  13. Mindy, my brain is like yours. I did just finish Glynna Kaye's debut novel for Love Inspired, Dreaming of Home. Excellent! And I also read New Moon (after seeing the movie trailer). :) Excellent as well.

    Mary's Cowboy Christmas is in my TBR pile! And after reading a blurb, I'm dying to buy Cheryl Wyatt's Soldier Daddy. :)
