The Reading Habits

Are you a re-reader? Why, or why not? And if you are, what are some of the books you have read over and over?

There are only two books (besides the Bible) that I’ve read more than once. My TBR pile is so high that I can’t bear to go back and re-read. But the two books I have read twice are Catherine Marshall’s Christy, and LaVyrle Spencer’s Then Came Heaven. The latter, I read the last page and was so sad to leave the characters behind that I …

Cover Reveal: Indie Novels coming soon

Indie April May 2017

You will recall that last year some of my best reading experiences were independently published novels, and this year is shaping up in similar fashion. I’m loving seeing the quality of indie covers improving, too, and there are some beauties here. Some I’ve already read, so I’m going to share a little bout those stories while I have your attention!

Jenny’s cover is the standout for me, eye-catching, appealing, reflective of the genre and that skull and crossbones amidst the flowers adds a lively quirkiness. I’m privileged to be reading it now, and are you all in for a treat! …

Must Reads: Becky Wade and Katie Ganshert


Okay, so I’m in a bit of a reviewing bind at the moment! As an INSPYs Board Advisory member I’m currently knee deep reading the longlist books which I can’t talk about as it would compromise our wonderful Awards, so I’m stuck. But…one of the best things about being a book blogger is access to not yet released novels. But then it’s best to review close to their release date. To remedy both my “problems” I’m going to recommend two upcoming books that I’ve had the privilege to read, which I won’t be reviewing until closer to their release dates.

The Writer

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

I’m so glad you suggested I ask friends, because as it turns out, their adjectives are different from what I might have answered. The answers they gave were organized, insightful, and loyal. I would have chosen “organized,” too, but the others surprised me.…

Bookish Question of the Week

BookishQu250We’re talking general fiction today. There might be romance, their might be danger, there will be heartache, tears, and restoration! General fiction is not my preferred genre, but there are a number of authors I won’t miss. These three for sure, along with the lovely Cynthia Ruchti…but that’s cheating adding a third name, isn’t it?!

If you are anything like me, it’s super hard to keep recommendations short, but I am going to ask that you stick with three only. It’s a given that you will have way more than three recs you could make, that you love lots of …
