Katrina Lybbert | 5 comments Happy New Year. My favorite book read in 2016 was A Noble Masquerade by Kristi Ann Hunter. A Noble Masquerade (Hawthorne House, #1) by Kristi Ann Hunter

This book kept my attention from beginning to end. It was the first in a long time that a book drew me in so much that I didn't want to put it down. I just loved it.

Amber Schamel (amberschamel) | 53 comments Oh, I want to read Luther and Katharina too! The one I really want to read by Jody Hedlund though is her new one, Newton and Polly. Newton and Polly A Novel of Amazing Grace by Jody Hedlund I was hoping my dropped hints would get me a copy for Christmas, but it didn't happen so I've got to get to a bookstore soon. :) Secrets She Kept looks great too!

Debbie Lockledge (aggieland_deb) | 20 comments The Ancient Words series (Books 1&2) by A. M. Heath. Goodreads has the series incorrectly listed as The Ancient Worlds series, but if you pull up the book cover and enlarge it where the series name is clearly visible, you'll see the series name listed correctly.

Amber Schamel (amberschamel) | 53 comments Good catch, Debbie. Have you contacted a Goodreads Librarian about the issue?

LadyS   (ladysugar_) | 1 comments Land of Silence By Tessa Ashfar. Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar this book is spectacular. The best book I've read not only in 2016 but in a long time.

Cindy Pye (cindychandlerpye) | 13 comments My favorite from last year is Cheyenne Christmas by Caroline Lee. It is such a wonderful story that I didn't have to worry about skipping "scenes" since it is Christian Historical Fiction.

message 16: by Amber (new)

Amber Schamel (amberschamel) | 53 comments Haven't heard of Cheyenne Christmas before. I'll have to check it out.

I want to read something by Tessa Ashfar this year as well. I don't think I've read any of her stuff yet.
