What My Summer Reading List Consisted of in 2014


Believe it or not I did get a lot of writing done over the summer for the writing projects that I have almost completed– ALMOST. Hopefully, I will be adding more to the word counts on those ‘said’ projects in the next few months with the kids back in school. I also added a lot to my reading lists that I would like to share. Maybe you are looking for a much needed break with a good book or perhaps you are looking for something to do while you wait for your son to come out of football practice late- – No? That must just be me!

Here are just a few of the books I read:

Lindsay Buroker has a great series called the Emperor’s Edge that I have to admit I found hard to start. I read the first few pages and I couldn’t get into it. Maybe it was what I had going on while I was reading or perhaps it was the Industrial- Steam Punk genre she writes in (not sure that is a genre but I am sticking with it). I put it down several times in just the first few pages. Once I picked it up and had some quiet time to myself I couldn’t put it down. Lots of places in the book that made me laugh OUTLOUD. She really sucks you into this make-believe world and I have since downloaded the others and the short stories. I highly recommend this series.

Patricia Strefling is another author I have fell in love with. Her books are very Christian based and the 2 book series ‘Ireland Rose’ is a great read. Strefling establishes a very strong female character in Ireland Rose and you will find yourself cheering for her one moment and having a hurting heart the next. Lots of twists in these books and I couldn’t put them down till I was done and had a mental completed story of her life.

Heather B Moore, author of Hearts of the Ocean was another book with a twist I never saw coming at the end. This was a book I thought I had figured out halfway through and I was completely wrong!! I am sure you will enjoy this as much as I did 
