The genres cover everything from thriller to romance. For your ease, I’ve included an Amazon affiliate link (this will not add any cost to your purchase, but I’ll...

Author Interview: Wrapped in Red by Meghan Gorecki

Meghan Gorecki and I grew up in the same circles (same school scheme aka homeschooling, nearby communities, same church), but we didn’t really meet each other until we’d both blossomed into stunning young women. (Okay, so I’m biased toward Pittsburgh women) But I was so excited to find another writer bent on making the writing life happen. And this Pittsburgh lady is on fire. In the last few years, Meghan Gorecki has published two books with plans for more. But...

Author Interview: The Engagement Plot by Krista Phillips

Krista Phillips entered my reading realm through one of my other favorite authors, Pepper Basham. I figured, if Pepper Basham said Krista Phillips was the stuff that she must be. And you know, Krista Phillips turned out to be chuckle-worthy. So I’m pumped that she agreed to join me on my blog to talk about her newest release, The Engagement Plot! If you’re interested in my review of The Engagement Plot, you can read it on @CordiallyBarbara! About Krista Phillips:...

Book Recommendation: Where We Belong by Lynn Austin

Since my first introduction (Waves of Mercy) to Lynn Austin, I’ve certainly become a fan. I jumped at the chance to read Where We Belong. So yes, I was given a free copy of Where We Belong, but my opinions are mine. The only time I don’t like confessing my feelings about a book is when I didn’t like it. But even then, I value kindness and honesty in my review. Book Recommendation: Where We Belong by Lynn Austin About Where...

Book Recommendation: Crown of Souls by Ronie Kendig

When I heard that Ronie Kendig’s second book of The Tox Files series was coming out, I itched to get my hands on it. Because honestly, I loved the Conspiracy of Silence, and I wanted to know, “Can Ronie Kendig do it again?” Bethany House Publishers sent out their email with the Fiction selection of titles to review, and I signed right up to receive Crown of Souls. So yes, I received a free copy of Crown of Souls, and...

Guest Review by Julia on The Maze Runner Series

When Julia pinged me with an email with her idea to review The Maze Runner Series on my blog, I thought, “Why not?” Julia and I clicked in Germany over three years ago, and she has constantly been an encouragement to me despite the fact that our paths have not yet crossed in person again. But I suspect I’ll see Julia again. These things just have a way of happening. If you want to know more about Julia and her...

Book Recommendation: All of You by Sarah Monzon

Click here to purchase your copy. My first interaction with Sarah Monzon was on a Facebook group. She was worried (Sarah, I hope you don’t mind me sharing). She was worried that readers wouldn’t like All of You. Her release date approached, and she reached out for encouragement. I remember loving Sarah for her honesty and her gutsy, vulnerable post, worrying over her upcoming release. And then, well, I HAD to read her book. And may I tell you something?...

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

Book Recommendation: The Assault (Harbingers, Cycle 2)

As per usual, I leapt into the middle of a series. I don’t mean to do this, but it happens (way more than I care to admit). And sometimes, I just add to the confusion of the story by not knowing what has happened in the previous book. But other times, a book from the middle of a series offers enough information that I can just run along with the current story. (Obviously, I like those ones) The Assault, the...
