Now that the holiday season is upon us, I am looking forward to spending time with family, enjoying the Christmas season, and curling up with a few good books in the evenings. There are a few books that have been on my wish list for a while, and a couple of others that will soon be released in late December.
Since reading Waterfall, the first book in Lisa T. Bergren's The River of Time Series, I have been eagerly anticipating Cascade and Torrent. I have to admit that I would probably not have read Waterfall if it had not been offered as a free Kindle book in the summer. Besides Jenny B. Jones' YA fiction books, I have not read many other YA Christian fiction books; but if their writing is any indication of what else is out there, I need to search for more! The River of Time Series packs in all of the elements of engaging fiction: multi-dimensional characters, a plot full of adventure with twists and turns, mystery, danger, romance... and time travel.
I still love to have a real book in my hands; so I am looking forward to getting these paperback books for Christmas. I am also a big fan of the free books that Kindle offers; and in several cases, it has introduced me to great stories and authors that I would likely never have known. The free ebook monthly promotions can be a powerful marketing tool for authors and publishers.
I am also looking forward to reading Alice Wisler's A Wedding Invitation. I have enjoyed all of her previous books; so I am sure to enjoy her new release as well. Like Wisler, Julie Klassen is an author that has become synonymous in my mind with good fiction. I love traveling to historic England in the pages of her stories.
After reading The Lady of Bolton Hill last summer, I have been looking forward to Elizabeth Camden's sophomore release,The Rose of Winslow Street, as well. I love the cover, and I hope that the story is just as promising!
