I’ve got my reading bug back and I hope it is here to stay…because I have a stack of books waiting to be read.
This will be no problem, as I can read two or three books at once. I’ve got my daytime reading, my nighttime reading, and my easy reading.
So, without further ado, here is my reading list for this month!
As usual, I have a mix of modern and “olden times”, as I like having a variety of books.
Dawn Comes Early (Amazon Link)
If you want something easy to read that is sweet, funny, with classic cowboy outlaws and a western town, then you will like this book.
This will be the second time I have read it. I can’t wait to get started reading it again.
Kate Tenney, a disgraced dime novel writer, her career has been killed by a recently banned book. Now she seeks a new avenue, she travels to Cactus Patch, Arizona to be the heiress of the Last Chance Ranch.
But from the moment she steps off the train, nothing in the books she has written prepares her for Cactus Patch. She meets the town outlaw on her first day, and Luke the town blacksmith. Luke reminds her of the hero of her novel, but she doesn’t have time to think about him. She has a ranch to learn how to run.
And she has no idea how to do it, all she knows is each day, dawn comes way too early.
Just Let Go (Amazon Link)
I am a sucker for those “unexpected love” stories. Kind of like Beauty and the Beast, both disliked each other, hated even, but as time went on and they got to know each other, love begins to come into play.
While this book is not anything like Beauty and the Beast, it’s got that “unexpected love” twist in it.
Quinn Collins has bought the flower shop her mother once owned. The mother who walked out of her life 20 years ago and never looked back. Quinn is now busy renovating and preparing for a prestigious flower competition. The last thing she needs is a distraction.
But in walks Grady Benson, Olympic skier whose fight in the town diner lands him doing community service, which he loathes. He gets the opportunity to work in Quinn’s shop, which she loathes. She thinks he is completely reckless and entitled; he thinks she’s the most uptight person ever. But there are glimpses of vulnerability in both.
Together they just might find forgiveness and the letting go of past heartache, so that they may walk in the freedom of the present, the way God desires for us to live.
The Library of Lost Things (Amazon Link)
This one I have already started reading, and I don’t think I have put it down…it is a very unique book, I don’t think I’ve ever read or found one like it.
Darcy Wells is a literary genius. From the moment she learned to read, she has lived her life within the world of ink and pages. For it is better than her world, as her mother is a hoarder.
Reading helps Darcy pretend her life is normal, and not filled with stuff.
When she not reading, she is working at a small bookstore called the ‘Yellow Feather’ where she meets Asher Fleet, a former teen pilot with an unexpectedly shattered future.
And for the first time in her life, she cannot find the right words when she is around Asher.
Darcy has spent her whole life keeping people out, but there is something about Asher that makes Darcy want to open up. But securing her own happily-ever-after will mean she’ll need to stop hiding and start living her own truth—even if it’s messy.
Undercover Princess (Amazon Link)
This book’s plot reminds me of The Prince and the Pauper meets The Parent Trap. And it has the most interesting names!
Lottie Pumpkin is an ordinary girl who has spent her life longing for the extraordinary.
Ellie Wolf is the crown princess of Maradova, who wants nothing more than a chance at an ordinary life.
When they both end up in the same dorm at prestigious Rosewood Hall, they devise a plan to switch places, identities, and live the life each has dreamed of.
But at Rosewood, a secret never stays secret for long. Someone in the school is on to them—and if the truth is revealed, the results may be more treacherous than they ever expected.
The Memory of Things (Amazon Link)
Similar to The Library of Lost Things, this book too is very unique, it talks about a time in history that is rarely talked about, let alone setting a fiction book in that date and time.
This one takes place on September 11, 2001.
After watching the first tower come down, Kyle Donohue runs home to safety across the Brooklyn Bridge and suddenly stumbles across a girl perched in the shadows, covered in ash, and wearing a pair of costume wings.
Unable to communicate with his family, Kyle makes a split-second decision to bring the girl home. What follows is their story, told in alternating points of view, as Kyle tries to unravel the mystery of the girl so he can return her to her family.
Let’s end the list with a Civil War story that is part fiction part non-fiction
Wedded to War (Amazon Link)
During the Civil War, there was a small group of women who become the first female nurses for the Union Army.
Charlotte Waverly is one of those nurses; and she will face more than musket balls and the gore of nursing. Corruption, harassment, and opposition from Northern doctors threaten to push her out of her new role.
Wedded to War is a work of fiction, but the story is inspired by the true life of Civil War nurse Georgeanna Woolsey. Woolsey’s letters and journals, written over 150 years ago, offer a thorough look at what pioneering nurses endured.
There ya have it! My reading list for the next few weeks!
