- The Silent Storm by Brown and Crone (Anne Sullivan’s childhood) Written on a simpler level, it was a quick and easy read.
- Desert Star by Linda Chaikin (already read the first one) Have to say that this one did not leave much of an impression on me.
- Hansi The Girl Who Left the Swastika by Maria Hirschmann. This one was interesting to me. She was a Polish girl that was a Nazi Youth, and escaped to Germany when the Russians took over Poland. She was saved after the war.
- Ever After by Karen Kingsbury (another sequel). I cried and cried! It was definitely a true to life story that I could hardly put down.
- ‘Tis Herself by Maureen O’Hara (autobiography). About what I expected. It was just her point of view so some of the things made me wonder. . .
- Remembered by Tamera Alexander (comes after Rekindled & Revealed which I really liked). It was good, but I hope that she stops with three in this series.
- A New Day by Anita Bryant (I read her earlier autobiography so I’m curious.) Only finished this one because it was on my list. I did skim read a lot of it.
- Cassidy by Lori Wick (one of my favorite authors). I still like Lori Wick. I can definitely tell when she’s writing for money. She’s just not as captivating as she used to be; or maybe it’s my taste that’s changing.
- Stars of the Twilight by Mada Scott (letters from her husband Lt. Col. C.L. Scott, an Air Force Bomber Pilot). He flew some of the first airplanes. I knew that he died in the war so it was bittersweet. One interesting thing was during their engagement when she was a teacher, he would buzz over her school in an airplane. All the students would run outside to wave at him. Quite different from today!
- Deadly Decore Mysteries by Ginny Aiken (Design on a Crime, Decorating Schemes, Interior Motives) Cozy mysteries. Funny, easy to read, pleasant.
- Janette Oke A Heart for the Prairie by Laurel Oke Logan. I just couldn’t get this one finished. Tried and tried.
- Fancy Pants by Cathy Marie Hake new in October. I really liked this one. Somewhat unbelievable, but it’s a fiction book! I might have to buy this one – used, of course.
- The New Testament by the Lord Jesus Christ KJV 1611. I made it through I Corinthians. I feel somewhat guilty because of that. The only excuse I have is that I like to take my time, read, and think about the words so I can’t read it as fast.
- Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen. I’m glad I read it, but I’m not keeping that book.
- The Measure of a Lady by Deanne Gist. Interesting for sure, but there’s something with Deanne Gist that just doesn’t mesh with me.
- The Martha Rules by Martha Stewart 10 essentials for achieving success as you start, build, or manage a business. Part way through – I will probably finish this one. It makes me want to think, create, market, and sell!
- Freedom’s Hope by Dianna Crawford (#2 in The Reardon Brothers Series) I’m really liking this series so far. Set in the pioneer days. The Reardon Brother’s have a valley that they are poplulating. # 3 is on my shelf to be read. I like the way that the characters witness to each other.
- True Light by Terri Blackstock. (#3 of the Restoration series) For some reason I find this series to be fascinating. A Pulsar knocked out all electronics and they have to change their whole lifestyle.
This was the first time that I made an actual reading list. Posting made me stick to the list more so I did read some non-fiction. It was fun, but I don’t think I will do another list right now.
I will post the winner of the third book later today.
