Cinder (Meyer)

I am surprised by how much I enjoyed this book! I have never been a big fan of the original Cinderella; she is really only good at being nice and pretty, making for a pretty boring character. 

Just in Time (Bostwick)

I don’t think I’ve read anything by this author that I didn’t like! Although this book wasn’t as much about quilting as some of her others, there was still quilting and sewing included!

Fahrenheit 451 (Bradbury)

This novel is the story of Guy Montag, a fireman who lives in a future where firefighters set houses on fire to burn books rather than put them out.

A Life Once Dreamed (Fordham)

Imagine growing up, thinking one thing about yourself and dreaming of your future, only find out what you’ve always believed to be true isn’t, and the new truth makes the future you envisioned for yourself no longer possible.

Set the Stars Alight (Dykes)

This book was one of those that I just couldn’t wait until I had a chance to listen again! The author did an amazing job of interweaving stories from two different times in history into one cohesive novel that kept me wondering how things were going to work out in the end.

Between Friends (Macomber)

This was different than the usual Debbie Macomber novel … still a great story, but not her usual romance story. This novel was a story of two girlfriends, spanning from the time they are small children through their adult life into about retirement age.

The Last Piece (Clark)

This is the story of a woman who gets the chance to reconnect with the child she gave up for adoption 50 years ago. You really feel for the main character and at times truly don’t like her daughter.

The Hideaway (Denton)

Sara Jenkins left Sweet Bay, Alabama as soon as she was old enough to do so, and although she makes weekly phone calls back home to her eccentric grandmother, she doesn’t seem to find many opportunities to visit. And then it’s too late.

The Girl From the Train

I really enjoyed this book … another great historical fiction novel where I felt like I learned about history without sitting through a dry lecture.

When We Were Young and Brave (Gaynor)

I really enjoyed this story, even though it was really rather sad in many ways, but it also showed the resiliency of people. Hazel Gaynor does an excellent job making you really care about the characters and make you want to know more about the events surrounding the story she has written.


Ok … I know this is a reader’s advisory blog and we are supposed to talk about books, but I really, really, really want to share this new TV series I recently watched as I think there will be many others out there who would like it.

Christian Fiction True Crime?

“Fiction Based on Strange, But True, History. True, riveting stories of American criminal activity are explored through unique stories of historical romantic suspense.”

The Accidental Empress (Pataki)

Elisabeth “Sisi” accompanies her older sister, who is betrothed to the Emperor, to the Habsburg Court to be her lady-in-waiting. Sisi soon finds herself with a problem … she has fallen in love with the Emperor, and he with her.
