Spring Reading List

Woo hoo! It's finally here - the Spring Reading Thing hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I've always loved reading. It all started with Dr. Seuss when I was quite young, continued on to my "devouring Nancy Drew books" phase, and on to today. Now I go to the library for one or two books and walk out with 10 or 12. A favorite pasttime is going to bookstores. There was a time in my life when hubby and I would go out to dinner with my parents on a Friday or Saturday night, and then for recreation, we all went to Tower Books (they were open very late) and hung out for an hour or two. And then there was Amazon and Alibris - let's not even get started there! Needless to say, reading has always been very big in my life. So here's my Spring Reading List:

Crossroads by Nancy Moser - I'm part way through this one. I've not read anything by Nancy Moser, but came across her books at the library the other day.

The Invitation by Nancy Moser - a series by Nancy Moser. If I enoy this one, I'll read the rest.

The next three are a series that my Mom told me about. They sound very charming and enjoyable. She had just received them in the mail and was kind enough to loan them to me.

O Come Ye Back to Ireland by Niall Williams & Christine Breen

When Summer's in the Meadow by Niall Williams & Christine Breen

The Luck of the Irish by Niall Williams & Christine Breen

The Yada Yada Prayer Group Gets Real by Neta Jackson - I've seen this series but haven't read any. I figured I'd give one a try.

If Diane Mott Davidson has anything new during the Spring Reading Thing, I'll definitely be reading that. Oops - nix that - after checking out Amazon, I find that her next book is due out in September of this year. She'll be on my fall list.

Also if Robin Jones Gunn has a new Sisterchicks book, that will make my list. What was it someone said - it's brain candy. That's probably a good description. They're pretty happy and pleasing books.

side note: everything I posted beyond this point was lost and had to be re-done! ARGH!!!

Get Out of That Pit by Beth Moore - I love her stuff! She is an amazing, annointed woman of God. I am always challenged and encouraged by her.

Upgrade by Kevin Swanson - Kevin is the Executive Director of Christian Home Educators of Colorado and spoke at a local homeschool meeting recently. I was fortunate to win a copy of his book.

Mom's Everything Book for Sons by Becky Freeman - I've read part, if not all of this book, but I'm always up for strengthening my relationship with my two boys.

Strengthening Your Grip by Charles Swindoll - Anything by Chuck Swindoll is fantastic. Once again, a "started but not finished" book.

I must say Thank You to Katrina for giving me this opportunity for accountability to complete some books I've started. I'm always up for a good book (or two or ten!). I don't have a picture of my stack yet, but might do that later today or tomorrow.

Happy Reading!!

Love Becky Freeman, and I've enjoyed Diane Mott Davidson's books as well...in fact, I enjoy many of the authors on your list. You oughta try Laura Childs and Joanne Fluke if you enjoy Diane!

Katrina @ Callapidder Days said...

I love Diane Mott Davidson too, and am always sure to pick up her latest. And I was a Nancy Drew devourer myself. The book by Becky Freeman looks really good; I'll definitely be looking into that one. Thanks for being part of the challenge!

I know a few people in a book club who area reading Get out of that Pit. I've not read anything by Beth Moore yet, but she's on my summer list.

I am another lover of Diane Mott Davidson! I am just about finished with Get Out Of That Pit and whew what an awesome book!
Happy Reading!

Well, for the DMD fans, her new book Sweet Revenge comes out on September 17th. You can pre-order it for $17.13 at Amazon. I plan to get on the list ASAP. I attended a book signing of hers and she is a riot! If you ever get to do that, I would highly recommend it. Sadly, the independent book store here in town that always hosted her for book signings closed, so we haven't seen her in a few years.

Deena - Thanks for the input. I'll definitely check them out. Maybe I'll finish my ENTIRE list before June 21st and can add them. LOL!! Just a little ambitious, eh? I'm always up for new good authors, though. I scarfed up Diane Mott Davidson (through The Grilling Season) and then I just stop and wait for a year or two until the next book shows up. I actually ration my reading of her books now, because I don't want them to be gone too quickly!

Katrina - Thank YOU for hosting. I'm excited to be a part of this.

Kathleen - If you ever have the opportunity to participate in one of her Bible studies with the DVDs, do it. She is incredible. The first time I saw a video, though, I about fell out of my chair! I wasn't sure I could take her for 10 weeks. Not only could I take her, but I always came back for more. God has done some amazing things through her life.

Nise' - I couldn't imagine Beth's book not being awesome, but it's always good to hear.

Well, I'm off to see what great books are on your lists! Happy Reading!

Dianne said...

Hmm, I just had to check out the other blogging Dianne with 2 N's on Katrina's list! Looks like you've got a lot of good reads ahead of you!

Susanne said...

I also love books by Chuck Swindoll. Have you read any of his Great Lives series? Amazing series. Those Irish books look very interesting.

Happy reading.

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Susanne, I haven't read any of those, but I hear they're good. They've been in that category of books I'd like to read (still). Maybe this will be the year.

You have one of the best lists I have seen. I really an likeing Sister Freaks. Perhaps I should pick that up this weekend. =)

Dianne - Bunny Trails said...

Thanks! I hadn't even heard of Sister Freaks - just happened to come across it at the library and put it on hold. It arrived just in time, too.

Have fun reading!!
