My house overflows with good books!

My house is overflowing with good books. I've had an influx lately. Not only am I finishing my own great book (a-hem) Dining With Joy, but I've been blessed with recent releases from my author friends.

Susan May Warren's new Summerside release, Sons of Thunder, is a fantastic book. The story, the writing is beautiful, and worth any readers time.

Colleen Coble's Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter. Given to my by the lovely and gracious Colleen last weekend, I started the book on my flight home from the ACFW spring board meeting and was completely captured. Colleen simply tells a great story with a heart that draws in the reader.

Siri Mitchell has been a favorite of mine for a long time. She's also a lovely person. Her latest, She Walks in Beauty, is a coming-of-age story that takes place at the turn of the 20th Century. I've just read a few opening pages, but it has already delighted me. I can't wait to read it entirely.

Denise Hildreth's latest release Hurricane in Paradise looks hilarious. Having lived through three hurricanes, I'm sure I'll be able to relate. I haven't started it yet, but I know Denise will deliver.

Crossing Oceans by debut author Gina Holmes, founder of Novel Journey, has written a lovely story about a single mom going home to deal with a life changing tragedy. The writing is solid, crisp and leads to a heart touching ending. (I peeked ahead.)

I also have Liz Curtis Higgs Here Burns My Candle and Lisa Harris's debut, Blood Ransom.

Liked your post. Someday I hope to write a book where the royalties will pay for the copies I give away.

Yeah, Nikki, me too! :)

Sounds like some good reading - DITTO that you get enough in royalties to MORE than pay for those give-aways. If you want to do something w/them after you read them - I'll be glad to take a couple of them :o) Love ya
