Bookish Question of the Week



It’s already been a year of great reading and there’s still plenty to come! With five more months in 2016,  I’m thinking about the books still to be released and read. There are more fantastic indie books to get your hands on, along with those from traditional publishers.

I’m sharing some of the books I’m excited to get my hands on in the second half of this year.  I’ve had the pleasure of reading four of the beauties below already and I can very confidently say you are in for a treat! It’s quite the eclectic mix of must reads – traditional and indie – but I’d love to know what your wish list for the rest of the year look like. Care to share?!

  1. You’ve included several of mine in your list (Tamara, Ronie, Kristen, Susan). Here’s a few more I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on:

    * Without Warning – Lynette Eason
    * Rise of the Beast – M.K. Gilroy
    * Catching Heat – Janice Cantore
    * Another Day, Another Dali – Sandra Orchard
    * The Captive Heart – Michelle Griep

    There are many, many more but don’t want to be a comment hog so I’ll stop here.

  2. SO MANY GOOD BOOKS. Cannot wait for Ronie’s, Kristen’s, Katherine’s (*happy face*), Susan’s and Kara’s. Joanne’s is beautiful. :)

  3. Almost all of these are on my want-to-read list as well. I also want to read…
    The Captive Heart by Michelle Griep
    Lost in Scotland by Julianne Donaldson

  4. I’m so looking forward to The Lady and The Lionheart! I was checking for that cover for MONTHS before it finally appeared!

  5. Can I just say ditto to most of your list ESPECIALLY Told You Twice and Can’t Help Falling!? I’d also be remiss if I didn’t add Another Day Another Dali. And, I don’t want time to speed up, but I wish Elizabeth Camden could just bump up her release date by…oh…six months or so sounds good. :)

  6. Love this sneak peek, Rel. Thank you. I’m keen to read many of those you’ve mentioned and in particular, Ronie, Kara and Jim’s.

    But I’m going to be a bit cheeky and nominate 3 others that have nothing to do with ChristianFiction but I’m very keen to read: AutoBiographies from Bruce Springsteen and Jimmy Barnes plus Matthew Reilly’s latest lands in Oct/Nov (always every 2nd year).

    See ya,

  7. Hi Rel!

    Thank you for the enthusiasm over my BOB. Griffin and Quintin are nearly ready to be unleashed on the romance reading world. So excited!

  8. Of course at the top of my list is Baron of Blackwood (BOB)!! I’ve read the others in the Feud Series, so I’ve been on pins & needles for the story of Baron Griffin & Lady Quintin. Note to self: “Patience is a virtue” (ok, now crumpling note and throwing in waste basket – ahhh- 2 points!) I know you’re working furiously Tam! Is BOB on pre-order yet?
    And I am also patiently waiting (another shot to the waste basket – HOOYA! 3 pointer) for your next time travel romance release “Lady Ever After” – it’s been a while since “Dreamspell” and you are so good at time travel romance – you go girl!!
    I will definitely be getting “Newton & Polly” when it releases – love, love, love the cover!
    I’ve already pre-ordered Bischof’s “The Lady & the Lionheart”.
    And Amy Matayo’s “The Thirteenth Chance” will also be on the batting line up.
    As always Rel – LOVE your blog and reviews – my Kindle is on fire!!!

  9. Klassen, Reay, Bischof, Isaac & Hedlund are on my list too! I would add:

    Shadow of the Storm by Connilyn Cossette
    When Love Arrives by Johnnie Alexander
    Waves of Mercy by Lynn Austin
    Child of the River by Irma Joubert
    Love’s Faithful Promise by Susan Anne Mason
