Bookish Question of the Week

bookishqu250butterflyI love the beginning of a new year! Why? Because I think of all the wonderful reading I have ahead of me. These days with Amazon posting books for pre-order eight or so months in advance, means we know a lot of what is ahead and the anticipation is fabulous…and often excruciating if we aren’t too patient!

I began the year reading an ARC of Sandra Byrd‘s March release, A Lady in Disguise, a Victorian era Gothic romance which is loaded with mystery and a delightful romantic attraction between theatre costume designer, Miss Gillian Young and the handsome …

The Writer

Please describe yourself in three words (ask your best friend or family if you are struggling!)

Energetic, thick-skinned, and creative are words that my friends use to describe me. I would lean toward smart, witty, and humble. :)

A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

A Moonbow NightSynopsis:~

Her wilderness survival skills are without rival.
But her greatest talent is keeping other people’s secrets.

After fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It’s a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke–men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew, looking for an experienced guide.

Though he balks when Tempe is appointed to lead his team through the wilderness, it isn’t long before Sion must admit that her abilities may outmatch his own. But can the tenuous

Top 10…ahem…13, 2016

rp_Top-10.jpgEach year choosing a top 10 makes for a challenging way to end the year, especially a year that did a bit of a number on our family…and many others, as we know! My reading time was greatly curtailed this year so I didn’t get to read anywhere near my usual number of books, nor review all the ones I did complete, even some on this list. So in some senses, this list is incomplete, but in no way am I unsatisfied with my choices.

It’s always difficult to choose a top 10, and any of you are good with …

Cover Reveal: Coming in mid 2017 from Tyndale House


Most of you will have seen Tyndale’s batch of mid 2017 covers as they have been around a little while. I’ve held my post until the new cover for Heidi Chiavaroli’s Freedom’s Ring was finalised, and it is one I much prefer to the original.

I adore Melanie Dobson’s cover – it is simple yet tells a story I want to learn about. Tracy Groot’s novel was originally published in hard cover with the title Maggie Bright, both now tweaked for the paperback version, and I believe this new cover reflects the story better. Jolina’s is stunning and I like

Year Seven! INSPY nominations are now open

rp_inspyrs2.JPGIt’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that the INSPY Awards are into their seventh year. It has been my honour and delight to be a part of this wonderful program since it’s inception as an inaugural advisory board member. I adore my fellow board members – past and present – and am excited to see the nominations roll in! I love these awards as they are reader/blogger nominated and judged by book bloggers. I love that the books that win are books that readers have connected with, which makes the INSPYs quite unique amongst Christian book award
