What books are you reading?

In the same vein as movie/music threads...

"Books? You want books?! Ha! We've got books on hairy otters, on onions and on mars! All the fungus you could care for, plus, three triple zillion stars. We've got books on flossing teeth, plus three books on tossing sheep. If we spent our lives just counting books, we'd never get to sleep!" -Leopold the Librarian ("The Great Wishy Woz, Part 2")

I'll skip the creepy book! My imagination is too vivid for me to read anything too creepy. :anxious:

I recently read "Tactical Rescue" by Maggie K. Black. It was a lighter read, but it caught my eye because it takes place in Ontario, and not that many books take place in Canada. It was quite enjoyable! It was the first book I've read by the author, but I would read more.

This week I've read: Firewall by DiAnn Mills, very good. I checked this one out of the library and bought the remaining books in the trilogy. Since I read the first one I have to read the rest of the series and the two libraries closest to me did not have them. Sea Rose Lane by Irene Hannon, also very good. Up next for me is Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar.

I recently finished The Last Unicorn. I don't think it'll become one of my favorite books, but it was definitely worth reading.

I finished Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar, very good book if you like Biblical fiction. Up next for me is A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar, it is the first book in her Shenandoah Saga series. Ms. Boeshaar is one of my favorite authors as well.

I just finished reading "Hush: Moving From Silence to Healing After childhood Sexual Abuse" by Nicole Braddock Bromley. She shares her story and there's lots of valuable information in it. Very enlightening read.

I'm almost done "Dreamspell" by Tamara Leigh. It's a time travel story, which I don't read a lot of but really enjoy now and then. It's been an intriguing read! :D

I finished A Thousand Shall Fall by Andrea Boeshaar, excellent. I can't wait for the second one. Up next for me is a book I checked out of the library a couple of days ago. Claudia: Wife of Pontious Pilate by Diana Wallis Taylor. I've already started it and I am really enjoying it. Yes, it is a novel about the wife of the actual Pontius Pilate who sent Jesus to the cross. First time reading this author.

I just started "Lady of Fire" by Tamara Leigh. It's historical, and different than what I had expected. It's interesting, but distinct from other books I've read by her.

I recently finished The Boy on the Wooden Box by Leon Leyson. It's a memoir of one of the youngest children to survive the Holocaust on Oskar Schindler’s list. It was inspiring and very easy to read. He, and his family went through it all it seemed and survived to tell the tale, which really puts the little things we complain about into a new perspective.

I highly recommend checking it out if you haven't already.

That sounds really interesting, snubs! I'll have to look for that book.

I'm over halfway through "A Lasting Impression" by Tamera Alexander, and it's fantastic! I'm really enjoying it. Great historical detail and a compelling story.

I just finished Claudia: Wife of Pontius Pilate by Diana Wallis Taylor, excellent book! I highly recommend this author. Up next for me is The Baron's Honourable Daughter by Lynn Morris. She is the daughter of Gilbert Morris who has been a favorite of mine since 1991.

I've been reading so much this weekend! :mad: I finished "A Beauty So Rare" by Tamera Alexander, which was excellent, then read "No Other Would Do" by Karen Witemeyer, one of my favourite authors. It was very good, and I'm looking forward to more in the series!

I'm in the midst of several books...for whatever reason it's hard for me to finish a book.

But they include:

A Crook in the Lot:Or, the Sovereignty and Wisdom of God Displayed in the Afflictions of Men, by Thomas Boston

The Flow of the Psalms, by O. Palmer Robertson

Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love, by Jerry Bridges

I borrowed "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" novelization from my local library and have barely started it. They had it on a display of newer books and I had a vague recollection of hearing that it was worth the read, so I took it out. It's good so far, though I'm not anticipating any really big surprises. ;)

I've finished The Baron's Honourable Daughter by Lynn Morris, excellent book.
A Penny For Your Thoughts by Mindy Starns Clark, excellent as well.
I am currently reading The Wonder of You by Susan May Warren, just started it today. Also A. Lincoln by Ronald C. White, Jr. I think people are smart enough to figure out who this book is about!! :mrgreen: It is very good.

Have you read the whole Million Dollar Mystery series by Mindy Starns Clark? You're making me want to read them again - I read the series years ago, and I remember it being very good!

I'm reading "To Whisper Her Name" by Tamera Alexander. It's fantastic! I am really enjoying it. I'm going to have to read her older books again soon. I read them a few years ago, but I'm enjoying reading her books so much that I want more!

I enjoyed that book when I read it too. I bought the Million Dollar Mystery series when it first came out years ago. I think I read the first one but never got around to the rest of the series. Now that I've read the first one I'll get around to reading the other four, eventually.

That happens to me sometimes too! I get distracted with another book that looks really good, or read something because I know I need to return it to the library instead of waiting forever to read it ;) and take a while to go back.

I'm reading "From a Distance" by Tamera Alexander. Reading her newer books reminded me of how great an author she is, so I went to the library to get more books! :D
