Spring Smorgasbord


No matter what the occasion, I’m always ready to spring into a good book. And I get a tad shy of giddy when given an opportunity to share what I’m reading. I’ve tried to curb my enthusiasm by limiting my list of spring must-reads to the books currently inĀ  my TBR pile. It’s still formidable though, so let’s get started. Here’s a sneak peek at what I’ll be reading in the next month or so.

I always choose a selection from Love Inspire every month. I love the consistency of their line and the guaranteed happily ever after. Not mention the amazing authors!


Picking out two Amish books was a given since I love this genre. I’ve read Rebecca Kertz before but Jo Ann Brown is a new-to-me author so I’m looking forward to getting acquainted.


Heartwarming and faith-filled, the Love Inspired contemporary romance line has a lot to offer. Especially with fantasticĀ authors like Lisa Carter and Glynna Kaye!


And seriously, how could I resist catching up with Linda Ford’s new historical series? Especially with covers as appealing as these beckoning to me.


Romantic suspense is a genre I can’t seem to get enough of. Excited about the new K-9 continuity series. Puppies! Intrigue! Romance! Need I say more?


And speaking of romantic suspense…sqqqqquuuueeeaaalllll!!!!!! Irene Hannon’s newest release is hovering near the top of my teetering TBR pile. I can’t wait to dive in. She never disappoints.


These three came courtesy of my public library. I love that they are expanding their Christian Fiction collection. I do my part by recommending books every month. I got first dibs on these ones for that very reason.


One of the huge blessings in my reading life is receiving free books in exchange for an honest review. This trio arrived on my doorstep via Litfuse Publicity Group. Cozy mystery, fairy tale retelling and women’s fiction. Can’t get more eclectic than that!


These two are courtesy of public library too. I have read both artists in the Christian Fiction genre and while I think these are for the general market I’m sure I’m going to love them as well.

Phew! So that’s what I am reading this spring! How about you?

  1. Wow, Kav, you’ve got quite an impressive assortment here. I haven’t read any Amish for awhile so those really intrigue me and also the romantic suspense. Irene Hannon never disappoints and the others look great too.

  2. You read books like my beagle eats food, lol! He inhales it all in seconds flat. I’m impressed. I do have two of these on my list–Melanie Dickerson’s Beautiful Pretender and Rachelle Dekker’s Calling! Great choices!!

    1. I really liked Rachelle Dekker’s debut book so I’m excited to get started in on The Calling. And, I love dogs, but not sure about being compared to a beagle. Bwahahahahaha!

  3. Kav – you always have the best selection of books! One of the books I’m really looking forward to reading is Cynthia Ruchti’s Song of Silence. She’s become one of my favorite authors – love her voice!

  4. Oh Kav, it looks like Thin Ice has a figure skate on the cover. I might not be able to resist that one for the skate alone! (Incidentally, have you read Alina Adams’ Figure Skating Mysteries? They are hysterical!) The Courtney Walsh novel, Change of Heart, caught my eye, because I’m pretty sure it takes place in the same Colorado town obsessed with Valentine’s Day as another one of her novels that I enjoyed, Paper Hearts. I really liked the characters in that one, and if this one involves some of them, I’ll be excited to read it!

    1. I just finished it, Stephanie. I’m like you — I saw the cover and thought figure skating? It does have a figure skating component to it. Whheeeeeee! And thanks for the tip about Alina Adamas, My library has three of her books. Woot!
