I can’t believe summer is almost over. As a teacher, I have one more week–to read freely, to write, to do whatever I want to do. Then, back to work for me. Yet, that will not stop my reading.
I’m excited about the next books on my list. They have been staring at me from my pile for a few months. Perhaps you will join me in reading some of them.
The first, and the one I am currently reading, is A Loyal Heart by Jody Hedlund. I always enjoy a romance from the Middle Ages, 1392. So far, Lady Olivia’s story is full of intrigue and surprises.
The Backcountry Brides Collection features 8 novellas by authors I follow such as Carrie Fancett Pagels, Angela K. Couch, and Denise Weimer. These stories take place in Colonial America. A historical time surrounding my own research.
Melanie Dickerson retells the story of Aladdin in The Orphan’s Wish. If you haven’t read any of Melanie’s novels, she has a long list of fairy-tale retellings.
I’m going to try a new author, Kimberley Woodhouse, with The Mayflower Bride. I’m ready to join the passengers of 1620.
I’m continuing the Uncharted Beginnings Series by Keely Brooke Keith with Book Three All Things Beautiful. It is 1868 in a hidden island country. Her novels are always creative and inspiring.
Although I’ve not read much about the 1920s, I’m looking forward to learning something from Ain’t Misbehavin’ by Jennifer Lamont Leo. I’m sure I’ll be entertained by Chicago’s vibrant history.
To get me in the spirit of Christmas, I am going to read the Once Upon a Dickens Christmas Series by Michelle Griep. The first one is 12 Days at Bleakly Manor. Ready for a mystery!
