What I’ve Been Reading

I love my Kindle. Love. Love.

Here’s a little snipbit of what I’ve been reading the past few weeks, and my thoughts on them…

Reference/NonFiction –

The First Five Pages by Noah Lukeman

I’ve had this on my to-read list for years. Every author sings is praises, and I’m quick to agree. It is a great book about the nuts and bolts of a solid novel.

This helped me during a bout of writer’s block and helped spur some important changes and edits for my work in progress. All authors – read!

From Dust and Ashes by Tricia Goyer

Another one I’ve had on my list forever. I loved this story and the rich detail and fresh perspective on World War II. This took place at the very end of the war and showed the powerful aftermath.

Goyer had me guessing all along what would happen next and who would end up where. A beautiful story and important part of history for us all to remember.

The Centurion’s Wife by Janette Oke and Davis T Bunn

This one was beautifully written and I’m a huge fan of the time period, and this offered a new perspective — This book takes place right after Jesus’ crucifixion and shows the birth of his following.

The characters are hard to resist and I was disappointed when it ended as I wanted to continue to read more about them! A nice read and I plan on reading the rest of this series.

The Apothecary’s Daughter by Julie Klassen

I adored this novel for so many reasons. The main character’s voice was so sweet and I rooted for her every step of the way. Klassen introduces so many potential suitors, you’re not really sure who the heroine will end up with.

I found the history of the apothecary fascinating (also partly because I hear a bit about such things through my job at a College of Pharmacy). The author was a joy to read and I’ve put all her other books on my to-read list. You should too!

    Love the new look lady! 🙂 We must catch up soon and brainstorm together! I think marrying design and writing is a beautiful idea that you consistently portray. Kudos! And thanks, as always, for thinking of me.
