I’m always happy when I get to talk with Varina Denman, the author solely responsible for me starting a blog 😉 Varina Denman enjoys writing fiction about women and the unique struggles they face. She seems to have a knack for describing small town life, and her debut novel, Jaded, […]

Today, the lovely folks at Top Ten Tuesday have given us free rein within a Thanksgiving theme, so I’m taking advantage of another freebie week to talk about books for which I’m thankful. These books range from nonfiction to fiction, current to less than current, but they all have something […]
Lynda Turner has struggled with depression since her husband abandoned her and their young daughter fifteen years ago. Yet unexpected hope awakens when a local ex-convict shows interest. As long-hidden secrets resurface, Lynda must fight for her emotional stability and for a life where the shadow of shame is replaced […]
This week I’m spotlighting my most anticipated books releasing this summer. Today I’m going to focus on contemporary fiction! Throughout the week, I will also be looking at historical, suspense, collections, and nonfiction. As always, I know I will inevitably (and unintentionally) omit a book from this list because there are so many great books […]
I. Am. SO EXCITED. As soon as I saw that today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic was a Valentine’s KissingBooks Day freebie, I knew immediately what my post would be about. Way back in August, I wrote my KissingBooks 101 post and it remains one of my most popular/highest viewed posts. But since then I have discovered some additionally swoon-worthy KissingBooks – or remembered some that I forgot about when I was writing the first lesson. I’ve had several people ask me to do another KissingBooks 101, and I am nothing if not accommodating when it comes to this topic 😉
A couple of weeks ago, I brought you a new list each day of the best books I read in 2015. This week will be similar except I will be talking about the books I’m most anticipating for the first half of 2016.
Let’s kick off the week with the contemporary genre!
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.
Today’s focus is contemporary fiction.
There are several great giveaways going on over at Goodreads right now for some of my favorite books!

*Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog linkup hosted by The Broke and The Bookish* It’s Tuesday, folks, and you know what that means – another installment of the popular blog linkup “Top Ten Tuesday”. This week’s theme is author duos you’d love to see write a book together. I’m […]
I must confess – today’s topic (also known as – If you write it, I will read it) stresses me out. Why? Because I have SO MANY AUTHORS on my I-will-read-whatever-they-write list. I can’t possibly narrow it down to ten. (Next confession: My budget doesn’t allow for a lot of […]
Today on Favorites Friday, I am excited to welcome back author Varina Denman to the blog! Varina will always be a favorite around here – her debut novel Jaded was the first book review I posted here and both Jaded and Justified made my list of Top Ten Books I’ve read so far […]
Can you believe that today is the last day of June already? Today’s Top Ten Tuesday theme is the top books we’ve all read so far this year. That’s really hard for me to narrow down to only 10, but I’ll give it a whirl 🙂 In no particular order […]
Author Varina Denman (one of our blog favorites!) is currently giving away 5 sets of her first two books, Jaded and Justified!! You can enter by visiting her blog and joining in the great discussion about “When Christians Judge Christians”. “It all comes down to love.”
The latest book in the “Mended Hearts” series, Justified takes us back to the small town of Trapp, Texas, and the characters we grew to love (and strongly dislike) in Jaded. Swirling with poetic language and poignant truth, Justified is the prodigals’ story – the ones who came home and the ones who […]
Y’all know about my love for Jaded and author Varina Denman. Her newest book Justified releases today (whoohoo!!!) and in celebration her publisher has lowered the ebook price of Jaded to FREE today and tomorrow. No worries if you miss the freebie price, either, because it will be on sale for $2.99 until […]
I stumbled into Varina Denman’s launch team for Jaded after seeing a blurb about it in her email newsletter. I had never been on a launch team before, but her description of what it involved captured my interest. Frankly, she had me at “Or simply open your front door and yell […]
