2016 Novel Anticipation

As the publishing climate continues to change, my list of must-read books continues to shrink. 2016 will not bring us the latest Laura Frantz, as her publisher is moving her to spring releases. My good friend Lorna Seilstad doesn’t have a book coming out this year either (insert sad face). I’m sure Charles Martin will Read More

Novel Anticipation – December 2015

This month’s small selection emphasizes my diverse reading tastes. Story wise, the following two books couldn’t be further apart, but both authors are at the top of their genre and are master storytellers. I’m certain I’m in for hours of reading enjoyment! EVERY CROOKED PATH (The Bowers Files) by Steven James Signet Who is the Piper? . Read More

Novel Anticipation – October 2015

When I was organizing this post, I realized each of these authors had one thing in common: they’re all Minnesota authors, and they’re all friends, most are members of, or have been members of the Minnesota chapter of ACFW. I guess October’s a good month to release a book up here. THE HIVE by John Read More

Novel Anticipation – September 2015

So excited about the books coming out this month! Two of my favorite authors, authors who write outside the norm for Christian fiction, have releases this month. So if you enjoy “clean” fiction but want something more challenging than your typical CBA fare, I highly recommend these works. THE MISTRESS OF TALL ACRE by Laura Read More

Book Preview: The Bones Will Speak

I usually do a Novel Anticipation post at the beginning of the month, but as I’m not the biggest contemporary or historical romance fan, the pickings are very slim. Not that I mind reading romance, but I prefer books that have more meat than romances typically offer. This month only one book made my anticipation list: Read More

Novel Anticipation – July 2015

Nothing sounds better than bringing a book lake or poolside to wile away a summer afternoon, does it? If your to-read pile is running low, here are books by three authors I highly recommend: GONE WITHOUT A TRACE (Logan Point Series #3) by Patricia Bradley Revell It’s been more than two years since homicide detective Read More

Novel Anticipation – June 2015

With one exception, it’s a pretty light month reading-wise for me. Of course, I’m thrilled for my friend and critique partner, Shannon Taylor Vannatter, whose 11th book released this month. Watch for more from Shannon (on my blog) later this month. Then it’s great seeing a male author with a release in Christian fiction. Anyone Read More

Novel Anticipation – May 2015

Along with May flowers comes a beautiful bouquet of books–sorry, I couldn’t resist. 😉 This month four of my favorite authors are coming out with new releases, and I know they’ll all be winners. Question: Which May releases are on your can’t-wait-to-read list? As Love Blooms by Lorna Seilstad Revell Denied a position as a horticulturalist Read More

Novel Anticipation – April 2015, Part Two

I’m especially giddy over the books listed in this week’s Novel Anticipation! I LOVE giving shout outs to friends when their books release, and this month, two friends are celebrating! I’m Snoopy Dancing with both Stacy Monson (Her debut!!!) and Rose Ross Zediker. And then, of course, Memory Box Secrets will officially release on April Read More

Novel Anticipation, February 2015

My list is short this month, but it’s a quality list including (2) of my favorite veteran authors and (2) rising stars. What’s on your February to-read list? WHERE RIVERS PART Texas Gold Series #2 by Kellie Coates Gilbert Revell Following in her estranged father’s footsteps, Dr. Juliet Ryan has devoted her scientific acumen to Read More
