message 31: by Karin (new)

Karin | 184 comments I just finished a couple, and am continuing to read the KJV over the summer.

Sadly, I was unable to get No Less Days from any of the libraries I have access to (most of the libraries in the state) and I don't currently have any book budget. Unlike so many of my reading friends here and elsewhere, I am not a fan of most romance books, so am passing on the other monthly read (I did like a couple of Cathy Hake's books on audio, though, including one not yet read here, but I have nominated a different book for October).

Books I'd like to read this month:
Vanishing Point (Nikki Boyd Files #4) by Lisa Harris Miss Kopp's Midnight Confessions (Kopp Sisters #3) by Amy Stewart The Great Wave of Tamarind (Tamarind, #3) by Nadia Aguiar Where We Once Belonged by Sia Figiel and a few others.


message 32: by Nancy (new)

Nancy (gr-nancy-a) | 260 comments Finished Francine Rivers latest. Definitely a good read. We have our book discussion on the 18th. It will be a good one.

My Heart Belongs on Mackinac Island Maude’s Mooring by Carrie Fancett Pagels vacation theme for the month
series to advance on:
The Storekeeper's Daughter (Daughters of Lancaster County, #1) by Wanda E. Brunstetter The Quilter's Daughter (Daughters of Lancaster County, #2) by Wanda E. Brunstetter
The Missing Amish Grandmother (A Salome Simon Amish Mystery #3) by Ruth Bawell

I chose it because I generally really enjoy Denise Hunter's books and because it was on audiobook from my library. My Library has a new Libby app on my phone which is very user friendly, especially with audiobooks. Audiobooks help me get to the gym, exercise outside or
when I'm doing housework. I just strap my phone to my arm- I have an Iphone neoprene holder kind of thing. It keeps my brain engaged in something fun while I'm doing something not so fun :) haha!


message 43: by Nancy (new)

Nancy (gr-nancy-a) | 260 comments Also reading Enigma by Catherine Coulter, not Christian fiction but clean and well-written suspense.

I haven't tried the Libby app yet. I hear it is super user friendly though! I've been using the Overdrive app on my phone to listen to audiobooks, but I think I might see what the Libby app is like...

I am with you on audiobooks making doing certain things easier - especially exercise and cleaning! :D

I'm pretty happy with what I've read so far this month, if I get one or two more in, I'll be thrilled :)

Finished A Song Unheard (Shadows Over England, #2) by Roseanna M. White today, then began these two: The Valiant Hearts Romance Collection 9 Stories of Love Put to the Test by MaryLu Tyndall The Scent of Lilacs (The Heart of Hollyhill #1) by Ann H. Gabhart


message 47: by Karin (new)

Karin | 184 comments I'm enjoying Lisa Harris' Vendetta. Vendetta (The Nikki Boyd Files #1) by Lisa Harris --I can see why she has won the Christy award, etc. I discovered her looking for award winning Christian fiction that isn't romance (but to be fair, these novels do get called romance and certainly have elements of that type of book in them, but it's not overpowering) a few years ago.


message 48: by Angie (new)

Angie Baer | 6 comments I am making my way through Becky Wade’s Bradford siblings series. True to You and Falling for You (which I finished yesterday). And I loved them so much. Wonderful Christian fiction romance but also two amazing plot lines. Now reading the third Then Came You.


message 49: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth (lizr8900) | 231 comments So far this month I’ve read Dune (Dune Chronicles, #1) by Frank Herbert (GM) which has been in my TBR pile for some time, A Most Noble Heir by Susan Anne Mason Out of the Ordinary (Apart From the Crowd, #2) by Jen Turano and I’ll finish The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond by Jaime Jo Wright tonight. I checked Old Man's War (Old Man's War, #1) by John Scalzi (GM) out from the library so I’ll work on that next.


message 50: by Caitlyn (new)

Caitlyn Santi | 96 comments Angie, I adore Becky's Bradford Sisters series, too! Can't wait to read the Christmas novella Because of You, and Britt and Zander's story! 😍
