I know this is a few days earlier than normal, but since I just began reading a couple of new books and know I won’t be finished with them by May 31, I thought this was as good a time as any to share my May Reads!
And let me tell you—this was a doozy of a reading month!
The London House by Katherine Reay
Oh, Katherine! You always tell such good stories! And this one was amazing. A historical mystery of family history it was completely engaging. I had a hard time putting it down each night. Loved, loved, loved it!
Stone by Ronie Kendig
This is honestly a heartbreaking even if redemptive story. But in usually Ronie Kendig fashion, it is full of great characters who capture your heart.
When the Day Comes by Gabrielle Meyer
Oh my! Time travel dual-timeline historical novel? Yes, please! Loved, loved, loved this book set in 1774 Williamsburg and 1917 New York/England. Wow. Could not stop reading!
History Lost and Found by Beth Adams
This is the first book in the Guideposts’ series Secrets from Grandma’s Attic. I loved it! A great historical mystery introducing sisters Tracy and Amy and their cousin Robin, their town of Canton, MO, and their Grandma Pearl’s house. Of course I know about book #6 because I wrote it, but I loved reading the beginning of the series. Looking forward to them all!
Lost in Darkness by Michelle Griep
Michelle is another author who grabs me at the beginning of a story and doesn’t let go! Loved this kind of backwards take on Frankenstein. Great characters and a gothic vibe. So good.
Love Practically by Nichole Van
I love NIchole’s books because they are generally set in Scotland. This one is no exception. I literally raced through this book, losing sleep because I was loathe to set it down. Can’t wait to read the rest of the stories in the Penn-Leith series!
That’s it! Short and sweet. But such good books. And in a very busy month, I feel quite thankful I was able to read so many.
On to June!
