I want to read all the books detailed in the book:
25 Books Every Christian Should Read

I don't really read much Christian fiction,
but I do have a few. I love Kay Arthur's
Bible studies, so when I saw her fiction novel.
I snapped it up. It is called, Israel, My Beloved.

I also have 5 books by Francine Rivers
that a neighbor gave me:
Unshaken (Ruth), Unashamed (Rahab),
Unspoken (Bathseba), Unafraid (Mary),
Unveiled (Tamar).

I probably have a few more ... need to
look for them.

I really like Lori Benton's books, I've read several and look forward to new ones coming out!

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.

Kim - there was nothing wrong with those 3.5* books. I just realized that several of the books that I had been rating at 4* didn’t have the depth that some of the others did, so I decided to be a bit more consistent.

I see a bunch of 3.5's on there, Connie, but then some good one's too. Lethal Legacy is one that I have, so I will have to go ahead and make sure that that is near the top of my reading list. Goofy Newfies made me giggle!

Oct. Reads
A Dance of Silver and Shadows by Melanie Cellier - fantasy - 5
The Dragon King by Mike Shelton - fantasy - 5
Apple Trees and HoneyBees by Charity McColl - Regency Rom - 4.5
Grace of Vernow by Shari Tapscott - fantasy - 5
Pippa of Lauramore by Shari Tapscott - fantasy - 5
Anwen of Primewood by Shari Tapscott - fantasy - 4
Seirsha of Errinton by Shari Tapscott - fantasy - 5
Audette of Brookraven by Shari Tapscott - fantasy - 5
The Princess Fugitive by Melanie Cellier - fairy tale retelling - 4.5
Sword in the Stars by Wayne Thomas Batson - fantasy -
The Last Stone Seed by Barbara Lindsey Galloway - fantasy - 5

I started and stopped several

I did read two books in an Amish Fairy tale anthology, a Cinderella retelling by Rachel Stoltzfus. There were two cuss words in the second part of the story (or the second book).

God bless, Kim

Connie, I see you liked most everything you listened to or read this time. That doesn't happen too often. I have quite a few of those books in my library or on my wish list - but I can't believe that we didn't overlap with any books this time!

Here are my July reads and ended reads because of cuss words:
(NC = non-Christian)
Burning Sky by Lori Benton - Hist Rom Indian - 5
Fledgling by Nicole Conway - fantasy (NC) - 4.5
Avian by Nicole Conway - fantasy (NC)- 4.5
Admirable by Sarah Holman - short story, historical - 2
The Princess Game by Melanie Cellier (NC) - fairy tale - 4
The Keeper of the Rulership by Emily Sorenson (NC)- fantasy - 3.4
The Sword of the King by Barbara Galloway - fantasy - 4.5
The Blind Duke by Charity McColl - Regency Rom - 4
In a Pirate’s Debt by Elva Cobb Martin- hist rom - 4
The Weeds within the Rulership by Emily Sorenson - mini story (NC) - 2.5
The Secret Slipper by Amanda Tero - fairy tale - 5
The Embittered Earl by Charity McColl - Regency Rom - 4
Robyn Hood: A Girl’s Tale by KM Shea - fairy tale (NC) - 4.5
Robyn Hood: Fight for Freedom by KM Shea - fairy tale (NC) - 4.5
Flight of Shadows by Sigmund Brouwer - fantasy - cussing DNF
Excalibur Rising - DNF - cussing
Traitor by Nicole Conway - fantasy (NC) - 3 (cuss words)
Traitor’s Masque by Kenley Davidson - fairy tale (NC) - DNF cussing

All of the NC ones that I read (other than the two I noted for cussing) were moral and clean.

God bless, Kim

I've been reading a lot of fantasy lately, fairy tales remakes especially - not sure why, but that's what's peaked my interest recently.

June reads:
Moss Forest Orchid by Shari L Tapscott - fantasy rom - 4.5
Spindrift by Jill Penrod - mild fantasy rom - 3.5
Beck: a fairy tale by Nina Clare - fairy tale rom - 4
Befriending the Beast by Amanda Tero - fairy tale - 5
The Thirteenth Princess by Nina Clare - fairy tale - 4.5
The Honorable Heir by Laurie Alice Eakes - hist rom - 4
The Princess Pact by Melanie Cellier - fairy tale - 4
Two Regency Fairy Tales by Charity McColl - 3
Robyn Hood: A Girl’s Tale by K M Shea - hist rom - 3.5
Rumpelstiltskin by Jenni James - fairy tale - 4
Lady Rosamund by Joyce Brandt Williams - hist rom - 3.5
Captivated by Vivi Holt - hist Indian rom - 3.5
Scarjheen by Barbara Lindsley Galloway - fantasy - 4
Message in a Bottle Anthology: A Distant Tide by Heather Day Gilbert - Viking Hist Rom 4.5
A Song in the Night by Amanda Dykes - Scottish Hist Rom - 4.5
The Forgotten Hope by Maureen Lang - American Hist rom -
A River Between Us by Jocelyn Green - Amer Hist Rom
Princess Ahira by K M Shea - fantasy - 5
Red Rope of Fate by K M Shea - fantasy - 5

K M Shea and Shari Tapscott are not Christian authors but their books are clean and don't have dark themes, but rather have forgiveness and love themes.

God bless, Kim

I think that it is so funny, we read some of the same books this month and I rated them very differently. I didn't even finish the Rosanne White book that I was reading, it was just so slow I couldn't get into it at all, so I stopped. It's not even on my list. The Susan Warren books, especially the last one in the series bothered me because of the slang and the shallowness of the believers, but the second one I enjoyed more than the last one.

May reads:
The Snow Queen, book 1 - K M Shea - fairy tale - 4
The Snow Queen, book 2 - K M Shea - fairy tale - 4
Audette of Brookraven - Shari L Tapscott - regency fantasy - 4.5
Seirsha or Errinton by Sharri L Tapscott - regency fantasy - 4.5
Sleeping Beauty by K M Shea - fairy tale - 5
Swan Lake by K M Shea - fairy tale - 5
Anwen of Primewood by Shari L Tapscott - regency fantasy - 4.5
*Deliver by Tricia Minerink - historical thriller fantasy - 5
*Wild Montana Skies by Susan May Warren - contemp rom - 3
*Rescue Me by Susan May Warren - contemp rom - 3
*If Ever I Would Leave You by Susan May Warren - contemp rom - 4
*The Spinner and the Slipper by Camryn Lockhart - fairy tale - 5
The Miller’s Girl by Nina Clare - fairy tale - 4.5
Moonset Child by Jill Penrod - mild fantasy rom - 4.5
*The Mark of the King by Jocelyn Green - historical rom - 5

Many of these stories aren't by Christian authors, but they are clean and have very good moral characters. The one with the * denote Christian authors or a Christian editor and at least a mild Christian message (such as in The Spinner and the Slipper).

God bless, Kim

I'm 57 and really enjoy YA fantasy. I've pretty much read all of Melanie's books and have even commented on her page on Good reads! I also love Jill Williamson, Donita K Paul, and Lisa Bergren's series! Some YA can be a little immature, but the more established authors usually write really well. I thought about this author too, Jenni James, she writes a lot of fairy tales.

SONFLOWER_TX - I also am childless. It was very difficult and I understand the pain. I was later blessed with two grown step-daughters and then a grandson. I said that I was really the lucky one, I got a grandbaby without having to raise kids. My grandson will be the only grandbaby and he is 19, now. God definitely blessed me, even through the pain. I can look back now, and see the blessing that God had in store for me, and the reasons why I didn't have children.

You are among friends with even that in common! Isn't amazing how God puts people together?

I have read several YA books that I enjoy, as well. I have read several of Melanie Dickerson's books as well.

Hi Restfinder, thank you for sharing. The journey to get to that place of peace that you have now is normally a turbulent one (speaking for myself). I found a few online communities that are supportive in helping me come to terms with this reality. They have really helped me especially to know that I am not going crazy after all. Just being real and transparent here.

One of them even had a Christmas gift exchange which I thoroughly enjoyed. I got a lovely necklace from a lady in England. And I was able to bless a lady in Minnesota. I am so grateful I found that group.

I thought it funny that I would find myself drawn to christian Young Adult romance books, but I am. Are there other not-young-adults that also like christian YA? I was like... do I post these books? And then if I do, do I post that I really, really enjoyed Melanie Dickerson's? Because they are going to think I'm a teenager! And I haven't been a teen for over 30 years.

Melanie D is very active on goodreads; it's always nice to interact with the authors.

I love Melanie Dickerson's stories. I've read most of hers.
I read that series by J C Morrow too and really liked it as well. The books, after the first one, were really short and quickly read.

I've never heard of "Life Without Baby" but my husband and I never had children. It took many years for me to realize that I wasn't less, just that God had a different plan for us. There are blessings and joys as well as losses in both states. We are content, especially now that we understand having children isn't God's plan for everyone - just as marriage isn't God's plan for everyone. Neither is better or worse, just a different path - and the path God chooses is the best path.

I'm so glad you shared. Thank you.

God bless, Kim

Thanks, Erin. Hey, sometimes I'm a whole month behind! So you are doing well!

God bless, Kim

There is nothing more important in your life than your relationship with Christ.

Something is wrong when focus is, "how sin does not separate us from God," rather than, "how God separates us from sin."

Live today with all you've got for Jesus. Never give in and Never give up.
