There are a lot of awesome books coming out this year, including our very own Rose Ross Zediker’s Dakota Love. I have it on order, currently being delivered by the slowest postal service in the world (or so it seems to my impatient reader sensibilities.) If you’d like a chance to win your own copy of Dakota Love leave a comment below or on any of our blog posts this week to be entered in the draw. Good luck!
Now, speaking of all those books….oy. I started a book buying journal by month for 2015. A very organized thing to do, but very overwhelming as well. I already have 153 books listed in my journal! And in case you’re into bookishly stats, here’s a genre rundown:
Historical Fiction – 57 titles
Contemporary – 46 titles
Amish – 26 titles
Suspense – 24 titles
And that’s just the ones I know about from the major Christian publishing houses! Interesting numbers breakdown though, right? For an industry claiming that historical is out they sure are publishing a lot of them. But I think there are definitely more contemporary books out there now too. Very trending in 2015.
I get a tad dizzy contemplating all those yet to be read books. Thousands of unread pages. Heroines I’ve yet to meet. Heroes not yet swooned over. Villians still plotting diabolical plans yet unchecked. Phew — give me a second to take a deep breath and gather my thoughts. Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out. Okay, the world has stopped spinning…for the moment.
Not wishing to add to my reading dervish tailspin, I won’t even try to single out individual titles (though you really ought to add Rose’s Dakota Love to your shopping list…or win it here. See details above.) Anyway, I decided ‘go big or go home’ so I’m tackling an entire genre today. Romantic Suspense.
I love me a good romantic suspense. I do. I do. I really do. Like these:
I get heart palpitations just looking at those covers and knowing I’ll get to dive into murder and mayhem with satisfying regularity in 2015!
What about you — do you have a favourite genre?
