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. 🙂
I have been a part of the Thomas Nelson and Zondervan Fiction Guild since its birth two years ago, and my oh my how those years have flown by! I have absolutely loved getting books in the mail every month, but if that wasn’t enough, every year they send me a “Happy Anniversary of being with us” gift too! I wanted to post this to share my appreciation and thanks for the gift. (I received it last weekend but haven’t had a moment to slow down yet!)
So I came home to this nice package waiting on my doorstep:
Included are five of the latest fiction releases from Thomas Nelson and Zondervan publishers, plus an exclusive tumbler!
I think the mug is just so adorable and I love how it says “Ask me what I’m reading…” because goodness knows that’s just about all I know how to talk about! 🙂
The first novel included is Katherine Reay’s The Austen Escape. I’ve been wanting to read her books for a little while now but haven’t gotten around to it. I love Jane Austen and as far as I know Reay does spin-offs of her works so it should be good!
The next book in the box was Amy Clipston’s A Place at Our Table. I haven’t read much Amish fiction, so maybe I’ll give this one a try over the winter. Branch outside of the normal. 🙂
The third book was Julie Cantrell’s Perennials. I’ve never heard of this author or book, but the cover has a really unique feel to it–it’s not your average paperback feel–it’s almost like dried, pressed flowers feel, which is really cool considering the title and cover design.
I was so excited to see Irma Joubert’s The Crooked Path in the box! I really enjoy her works; they have a simple feel like that of Little House or Little Women novels, but really unique settings, perspectives, and characters. Her previous book, The Girl From the Train, is one of my all-time favorite books, if not top favorite, so I am excited to read this one. It’s a fairly hefty paperback, coming in at 392 pages of story, so I’ll have to clear out my schedule.
THANK YOU FICTION GUILD!!
