My Fave Reads in April and May

June 3, 2017 month in review, monthly faves 40

I am in a perpetual state of ‘behind’ lately, it seems, and as such May was over before I had even thought about a “My Fave Reads in April” post. Soooooo… y’all get a bonus today!

   

 

   

   

 

 

 

(May was the month of interviews and guest posts lol)

What about you? What were some of your fave reads in April and May?

    I can’t tell you, Carrie, how thrilled I was to wake up to see Blown Together beside all these AMAZING books!! Love and hugs!!!

    So…for some reason WordPress has me down as Amanda Tero! What??? I wrote that comment above 😉 LOL

  3. Kin

    Totally agree with you on A Fragile Hope and True to You. They were both awesome. Many of the rest you listed are in my massive TBR…not even sure what to call it anymore!

    I’m “behind” in everything right now. I loved Susanne’s Dietze’s “My Heart Belong’s in Ruby City”. Of course, Just The Way You Are” is one of my faves. I don’t think Pepper Basham has written a book I didn’t like. I do still need to read The Thorn Healer but I’m pretty sure I’m going to like it 😉
    Other faves were Melissa Jagears “A Love So True”, Seven Brides for Seven Mail-Order Husbands” Barbour collection, Cynthia Roemer’s “Under This Same Sky”, Naomi Rawling’s “Love’s Winter Hope”, “Right Where We Belong” by Raney, Tagg, and Walsh. Oh, and “Alice’s Notions” by Tamera Lynn Kraft, and Angela Couch’s “The Patriot and The Loyalist.”
    I still need to read several of the books on your fave’s list.

      Hey Andrea! Angela Couch is one of my critique partners, and her stories are great! I haven’t gotten to many of the others you mentioned, so I need to check them out!

      I still need to read several of the books on YOUR list 😉

    This sounds aweful but I feel like the majority of books I’ve read this year have been “meh”. What’s wrong with me?

  6. Marilyn

    Carrie,you amaze me with all the books you read each month. I love your choice of books.

    Man you read a lot. Was coming out of darkness fictionor non fiction and did you do a post on it that i missed?

    I’m perpetually behind as well! My favorite reads for April/May were The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson, The Memory of You by Catherine West, and Shelley Shepard Gray’s Her Secret AND His Guilt (an uncorrected proof I was sent – yay for twitter, though now it will seem like an even longer wait until The Amish of Hart County books 3 & 4 come out!). Now I feel I’m slighting the other books I read, all of which I enjoyed…

    I’m planning to read The Evaporation of Sofi Snow, True to You, and Behind the Scenes this month (and hoping to get to more). 🙂

    I’m behinder than you are! I really need to read some of these— as soon as the library gets them! Thanks

    ACK! I never seem to be able to read a new release until much later. The struggle is real!

  11. Rebecca Maney

    A couple of my favorites were (that you have not already mentioned) were “Wings of the Wind” by Connilyn Cossette, “The Feathered Bone” by Julie Cantrell, “A Trail of Crumbs” by Susie Finkbeiner (so glad she will be at the CFRR!)and “The Illusionist’s Apprentice” by Kristy Cambron.

    • Janet Ferguson

      Hi Rebecca!! I want to read Julie’s book and the one by Kristy Cambron. I hope to be at CFRR next year and meet you!

    • Carrie

      those are all on my MUST READ ASAP list lol

    Aw, Carrie! Hugs and more for including WAITING FOR BUTTERFLIES! (Oh, and here’s one more hug!) Looking over your list and reading the others’ made me remember a couple titles I forgot to write down! 🙂 A FRAGILE HOPE was my first Cynthia Ruchti book (and not my last!). THE CON MAN’S DAUGHTER really grabbed me–nonfiction and a little tough at times–but the redemption story…YES! FAITH TRANSPLANTED is a nonfiction story by a friend who underwent a liver transplant. Very well done, but I may be a little biased. 🙂 I am almost finished with TURTLES IN THE ROAD by Rhonda Rhea and Kaley Rhea…a witty and sweet romance.
