I'm almost starting to think that I should make these a monthly event since that is how often I appear to be posting these!  Here is what I have acquired over the last couple of weeks.

Received for Review:

  • Young Jane Austen: Becoming a Writer by Lisa Pliscou (received from author) - just a lovely little book and so different.  Review coming soon as I already inhaled this book.  I'm not a huge Jane Austen fan by I enjoyed this on.  I agreed to review it because I was interested in the format and structure of the book.
  • The Tapestry by Nancy Bilyeau (received from the publisher) - looks like I have a marathon coming up of Bilyeau's books because I have them all to review.
  • The Oregon Trail: An American Journey by Rinker Buck (requested via Netgalley) - I have always been interested by all things Oregon Trail and this one is the author's trek across the trail.
  • The Rebel Queen by Michelle Moran (received from author) - Michelle Moran, need I say more!
  • Gallagher's Pride by M.K. McClintock (audio download from author) - I had read the Christmas short story collection last Christmas and loved the author's storytelling style of a western historical fiction romance.  Great audio production - another series of books I inhaled!
  • Gallagher's Hope by M.K. McClintock (audio download from author) - see above
  • Gallaher's Choice by M.K. McClintock (audio download from author) - see above
  • Cleo by Lucy Coats (requested via Netgalley) - love everything Cleopatra and this is a YA take on her life.  The only one I have read as a YA on her before was Royal Diaries series book.
  • Beneath the Heart of the Sea by Owen Chase (requested via Negalley) - I am going to pair this one with Nathaniel Philbrick's The Heart of the Sea.
  • Among the Fair Magnolias by Tamera Alexander, Shelley Gray, Dorothy Love, & Elizabeth Musser (requested via Netgalley) - I am loving anthology/compilations lately and especially those set in the South.

  • Arthur by Stephen Lawhead (Kindle purchase) - I have been working on building by Lawhead collection for awhile.
  • Pendragon by Stephen Lawhead (Kindle purchase) - see above
  • The Black Rood by Stephen Lawhead (Kindle purchase) - see above
  • The Golden Apple by Michelle Diener (Kindle purchase) - I have enjoyed the few Diener books I have read and have started collecting her works.
  • Her Irish Surrender by Kit Morgan (Kindle purchase) - I have been picking up the books in the Holiday Mail Order Brides series throughout the year and this one was on sale during St. Patrick's Day.
  • Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross (Kindle purchase) - I have heard so many good things about this book, I jumped on it when there was a sale.
  • Queen of the Waves by Janice Thompson (Kindle purchase) - Titanic set - so of course I grabbed it.
  • The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon (Audible purchase) - Diana Gabaldon, need I say more!
