What I've Been Readin'

Hey all! Today I have my list of books I have read in the last two weeks here for you. It's not as many as I could have done, but Jess(my older sister) and I have been watching some old movies together (Little Dorrit, Newsies, etc) together and they aren't very short. So that has been cutting into my reading time at night. Anywho, here we go!

Jersey Brides (Romancing America)
Well I picked up the last book in Laurie Alice Eakes little New Jersey series, The Newcomer. I've enjoyed this fun series and, while this wasn't my favorite one, it was still a good read and a nice conclusion to the series. If you are curious to read my review you can go HERE. If you like Laurie's works, then you will enjoy this conclusion to the New Jersey series.

Too Close to Home (Women of Justice Series #1)I read the third in the Woman of Justice series by Lynette Eason a little while ago, and since I had the first installment, Too Close To Home, on my kindle, I dived into eagerly.I was NOT disappointed in this book. Lynette is a gifted writer and her books are full of suspense, action, and heart-warming love stories. I look forward to getting the second book in this series so I can read about all three of these amazing women.

Pompeii: City of Fire: A Novel 
After that I grabbed T.L. Higley new book, Pompeii: City on Fire. I always love reading her books because I learn so much history as I go through the amazing adventures. Wow! The eruption of Vesuvius came to life through the stories of Ariella and Cato. Love historical fiction where you learn a lot? Get Pompeii: City on Fire! You can read my review HERE.

Tomorrow We Die 
With a name like Tomorrow We Die, by Shawn Grady, I had high hopes for this book. A nice suspense/mystery, I loved the medical view of this book as it followed Jonathan, a EMT paramedic. You can read my review HERE, but if you like action and suspense you will really enjoy this book. I look forward to reading more by Shawn in the future. 

Praying for Your Future Husband: Preparing Your Heart for HisI heard SO many good things about Robin Gunn and Tricia Goyer's first book they wrote together, Praying for Your Future Husband. And, wow, was it good! What a big encouragement it is to single women everywhere. And I liked it because it not only talks about your future husband, but also bettering your relationship with the Lord. Reading all the stories of other women who prayed for their future husbands...it was very uplifting and encouraging. Really, if you are waiting for your future husband, this is a wonderful book to get and really take to heart! My review can be read HERE

Distant Melody, A: A Novel (Wings of Glory) 
Okay, I have been waiting and waiting to read Sarah Sundin's books. Well, it finally reached the top of my TBR pile and I dove into A Distant Melody with a lot of excitement. And I was not disappointed. I loved reading about World War II and I so enjoyed getting to know these two amazing characters, Walt and Allie. One thing I loved about their love story was that it didn't develop over physical attraction (though that was there), but over their exchanged letters. I can't count the number of times I laughed or cried with Walt and/or Allie. Certainly a book worth putting on your wish list.

False Witness 
After reading that lovely historical fiction, I dove into Randy Singer's suspense/thriller novel, False Witness. Oh-My-Word!! Talk about being taken for a WILD ride! I enjoyed every second of this book and look forward to re-reading it sometime soon. My review can be read HERE where I rant and rave on and on about how much I love it. ;-) There is torture and threats of rape in the book, but that's the only warning I have for you!

Targets Down: A Novel 
Last, I just finished Targets Down by Bob Hamer today. Another great suspense novel, I really loved reading about Matt's undercover work. Because his undercover work deals with a prostitute house, I definitely recommend this for mature readers. But besides that, this was a wonderful suspenseful read to add to my bookshelf. Since I just finished it, I still have not written up a review, but hope to soon. This is the first book I have read by Bob Hamer, but I look forward to reading more in the future.

Great list! I have read all of the Women of Justice series by Lynette Eason, and I absolutely LOVE them! The second was my favorite. I hope you enjoy it! I'm waiting to get Praying for my Future Husband in the mail - I can't wait!

Thanks Jordan! Oh really? Awesome! I am looking forward to reading Don't Look Back. Too Close to Home and A Killer Among Us were awesome!

How exciting! I hope you like Prying for Your Future Husband as much as I did. It was amazing and a very easy read!
