It’s that time of year when everyone is making lists and checking them twice. Some are finding out who has been naughty and who has been nice. Some are making sure those in their circles of gifting know what they want for Christmas.

Here at Reading Is My SuperPower, I’m making lists too! Every day this week will feature the best books I read in 2015 from different genres.

Review Extravaganza: Patricia Davids

Review Extravaganza: Patricia Davids

Amish, contemporary, Patricia Davids, romance 4

One of the problems that occurs when you maintain an active book blog is that, thanks to review schedules and deadlines, you don’t always have time to read the books you normally would have read by now. As such, I found myself woefully behind when it came to Patricia Davids’ books and made some time this past week to play catch-up. Rather than inundate y’all with numerous posts, I decided to just do mini-reviews of each one at once.

Review (Plus a Giveaway!): Huckleberry Hearts by Jennifer Beckstrand

Review (Plus a Giveaway!): Huckleberry Hearts by Jennifer Beckstrand

Amish, Christian, contemporary, Jennifer Beckstrand, romance 16

While this is the 6th book in the Matchmakers of Huckleberry Hill series by Jennifer Beckstrand, it can easily be read as a stand alone. But I can just about guarantee you will want to go back and read the other books in the series as soon as you’ve finished Huckleberry Hearts because you will fall in love with Anna and Felty and Cassie and Zach and well, MOST of Cassie’s extended family 😉 Written with much talent and warmth, Huckleberry Hearts is a new favorite and I highly recommend it to fans (and non-fans) of Amish fiction, Jen Turano, and Cynthia Ruchti.
