Today is a release day for at least 4 new books, and 3 of these are books that I had been anticipating reading for a very long time already! 🙂 I don’t know why the publishers do this to us–they throw so many at you at one time, you have to run to keep up! 😉
The three books that I am referring to are these:
A Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette
This is the first book in a new series, called Cities of Refuge. It’s a spinoff, or continuation of the last series Connilyn wrote, and it includes some of the characters from that series.
I’ve just started reading this book, and hope to finish it very soon, and then I’ll give a full review. So far, I’ve only read the first chapter and I can already tell I’m going to love it! (You have no idea how hard I have to work at forcing myself to lay down a book and go get my work done…it’s an ongoing battle…and yes, I have to keep going. 🙂 ) I enjoy sitting down and really reading then, when I get a spare minute, or more… 😉
A Refuge Assured by Jocelyn Green
This book is next, yes, the very next. And I about can’t take the waiting of the reading of this one, either!! (Wouldn’t it be great to be able to read two books at once! Except then you’d reach the endings too soon. No, that would definitely be a loss of enjoyment) I’ve heard so many good things about this one. This author has real talent for books in the historical fiction genre–I can only begin to imagine how much time was spent on the research–the details are incredible! I’ve also read The Mark of the King, also written by Jocelyn Green, and if you have any interest in historical fiction and have not yet read that one, you should check it out! That one happens during the 1720s in Louisiana, when it was still a French colony. A time period & setting that I knew very little about before I read the book.
My paperback just came on Friday, so I decided to wait and enjoy it that way (as opposed to reading a netgalley copy).
The Lost Castle by Kristy Cambron
And here’s another one I really, really want to read! I’ve read all the other fiction books by this author, and absolutely loved them! The reason I’ve not yet read this one is that I do not have a paperback copy of this one to read (no–I don’t get copies of all the good ones sent to me, although I really have gotten a lot recently! 🙂 ). I do have a copy of this one on my kindle reader. So I will read it soon, but somehow, the paperback books usually take priority over the kindle ones. A book has to be really good, or I might not get it read, if I only have an ebook.
If you can’t afford buying another new book, I highly encourage you to check it out from your local library, or if they don’t have it, request them to get it for you! (our local library system is really good about getting in new books!)
And here’s another also releasing today:
Saturday Night Supper Club by Carla Laureano
This book I’ve wanted to read simply because it intrigues me. The description on the back cover, the recommendations from others, etc. I signed up to participate in a book tour for this one, so I’ll give you my review at that time. I haven’t read this one yet, and I don’t think I’ve read any other books by this author, so I’m looking forward to the experience! Go check out the Amazon link if you want any other details! 🙂
Tell me what book you are reading today! (or if you don’t have time to read today, what is next on your reading list?! 🙂 )
