Here we are again with an update of some of my favorite new and old reads of the past few months! Technically this list extends back a few months into 2021 and ends at some point in March. I’ll update you on my late-spring reading when I post my summer reading update. My reading tastes are a bit eclectic, with an emphasis on Christian fiction and historical fiction, so you’ll find everything from lighthearted spy comedy to classics on this list—and even a short story. Enjoy, and share in the comments if you’ve read any of these!
Introducing the new format! Even updates eventually need updates. My updates page has been reformatted to a more traditional blog-style layout. The main reason for this? I love to hear from and engage with my readers and other book-lovers, and I wanted a way to post updates that would let you comment and follow and interact. This post is a quick one to let you know a few pertinent details.
I’m excited to announce the release of Promise of Refuge, a short story prequel to Preacher on the Run! This story has floated around in my head for a long time—ever since I wrote about Robert and Magdalen Boothe in Preacher on the Run. You see, I knew Robert had been a circuit rider, and I knew Magdalen had grown up on a tobacco plantation in the east. But I had never fully imagined how they met.
I’ve always been a voracious reader, and this summer and fall have been no exception. With a mix of old favorites, new favorites, and not-so-favorites, my reading list has expanded to include some authors I didn’t know about but very much enjoyed. Since you may find these titles and authors equally unknown but equally enjoyable, I thought I’d share some highlights from my precariously leaning book piles. Here they are, in no particular order.
Hello, book-lovers, and welcome to the Preacher on the Run blog tour! This is the first stop on a two-week tour through multiple book blogs, with interviews, excerpts, a giveaway, and more.
