Rachel Brand We've not had one of these posts in a while, so I thought I'd start one for this month! What books are you hoping or planning to read in May? Do you make a plan, or do you like to pick books as the mood takes you?

I've signed up for a few group reads and reviews this month, so I already have quite a list that I'm hoping to work through:

A Woman After God's Own Heart by Elizabeth George The Measure of Katie Calloway (Michigan Northwoods, #1) by Serena B. Miller Inescapable (Road to Kingdom #1) by Nancy Mehl While Love Stirs (The Gregory Sisters, #2) by Lorna Seilstad Mark of Distinction (Price of Privilege, #2) by Jessica Dotta Four Friends by Robyn Carr Courting Morrow Little A Novel by Laura Frantz Night Road by Kristin Hannah

Carole Jarvis | 80 comments The Miting An Old Order Amish Novel by Dee Yoder Has anyone read this book? I just started it today, reviewing it for Kregel. It's good so far, but presents quite a different view of the Amish faith than anything I've ever read.

Carole Jarvis | 80 comments The Christmas Quilt by Vannetta Chapman I really enjoyed this book by Vannetta Chapman, very entertaining and inspirational. It's marketed as a Christmas book, but would work well any time of the year. See my review at http://bit.ly/JsfwQR.

Carole Jarvis | 80 comments An Amish Garden by Beth Wiseman "A garden is a way of showing that you believe in tomorrow." - Amish proverb, from An Amish Garden

This group of Amish stories from four talented authors - Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller, Tricia Goyer, and Vannetta Chapman - is one of the best collections I've ever read. Much more character depth than I usually find in novellas. See my review at http://booksmusicandlife.blogspot.com...
