The Liberty Bride by MaryLu Tyndall is the sixth book in a series of books by various authors, telling a story through the birth of America. This story is set during the war of 1812.
Today’s post is a list of books I’m aiming to read this year. They aren’t necessarily released in 2019, just books I’ve been wanting to read for a little while that I hope to get around to.
Whoohoo and welcome back to one of my favorite posts every year, the post where I look over all the books I read and tell you which ones are my favorite! I read 58 books in 2018, and I’ve narrowed the list down to the top 11 I want to share with you all. They are in the order that I read them in 2018, not of favorite to least favorite or anything like that.
Freedom’s Light by Colleen Coble is one of the latest books I’ve received from the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild. I haven’t been a huge fan of Coble’s in the past, but I enjoyed this novel. I love historical novels and have read several centered around lighthouses, so this fell within my sweet spot for reading. 🙂
Searching for You by Jody Hedlund is the third book in Hedlund’s “Orphan Train” series. In this series, Hedlund takes an interesting perspective on this historical phenomena, following the perspectives of three German immigrant sisters and how their lives in America were all touched by the orphan trains of the Children’s Aid Society.
Wow, wow, wow.
I can’t even begin to explain this book. It’s complex, it’s simple, it’s humorous, it’s serious. It’s raw and real and honest. Levi strips away the masks we like to hide behind, and gets down to business. I smiled and laughed at some of his personal stories; they drew me in and I couldn’t put this book down.
The Christmas Heirloom: Four Holiday Novellas of Love Through the Generations is a collection of novella stories spanning a couple hundred years of time, from historical novellas to a contemporary one, that is written by four different authors.
Murder at the Flamingo is Rachel McMillan’s debut novel, so congratulations to her! The Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild sent me this title recently and the cover immediately caught my eye. It’s cute and quirky this cover is while still portraying that it’s a murder mystery set during the 1930s! It’s one that definitely piques your interest and makes you want to learn more about it.
Shelter of the Most High by Connilyn Cossette is the second book in the “Cities of Refuge” series. I haven’t always been a fan of biblical fiction, but this series and the author’s previous series have been absolutely incredible. (Each book can work as a stand-alone but the characters do carry over.)
