Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
I am horribly remiss in participating in memes on a weekly basis. I'd love to find just *one* that I could follow through with...for once in my life. Maybe this will be the one. *wink*
So, the Top Ten List this week is something to the effect of one's personal, most wish-listed books. I'm going to go along with the main post by compiling a list of books scheduled to release between Sept. 1 and Nov. 29, which is my birthday. Every one of these books would be a lovely gift to receive...maybe I should point my hubby to this post. :o)
1. Forsaking All Others by Allison Pittman - This is book 2 in Allison's Sister Wife Series, and I have no doubt it will be as *incredible* as the first one! It's a little out of the norm when it comes to Christian fiction because it follows the early days of the Mormon church and the practice of polygamy. Scheduled to release 10/1/2011.
The Christmas Singing by Cindy Woodsmall - After just meeting Cindy in person earlier this month, I'm so anxious to read her newest book. I've not been disappointed yet with any of her books. Scheduled to release 10/4/2011.
Love on the Line by Deeanne Gist - Anything by Deeanne is a must-read. Her mix of edgy writing and humor always make for fabulous stories. :o) Scheduled to release 10/1/2011.
A Lasting Impression by Tamera Alexander - Don't shoot me, but I've not yet read one of Tamara's books, despite countless recommendations to do so. I'm intrigued by this one mostly because 1) it's historical and 2) it's set in TN, my home state. And do you see that cover?? Love!! Scheduled to release 11/1/2011.
The Lady's Maid by Susan Page Davis - Ever since reading Susan's Ladies Shooting Club series, I've been eager to read another one of her historical novels. The cover of this one is beautiful to me, too. Scheduled to release 10/1/2011.
Shadow in Serenity by Terri Blackstock - I always go for Terri's books when I want a good suspense story that's tied together with a social issue. Lately, she's been writing a series of books that deal with drug addiction that have been impossible to put down. Shadow in Serenity is bound to keep me occupied until I can get my hands on the next book in her Intervention Series. Scheduled to release 9/27/2011.
Baby, It's Cold Outside by Susan May Warren - A few months ago, I got my first taste of Susan's books, and I'm hungry for more! This one sounds like a perfect Christmas read, and it's releasing well in advance of Christmas to give me plenty of time to read it and get in the Christmas spirit. :o) Scheduled to release 9/1/2011.
From Ashes to Honor by Loree Lough - This book has been on my radar for a long time now, and kudos to Loree for writing a book based on the events of 9/11. I've only read books by Loree that included a good dose of humor, so it'll be interesting to transition to something more serious from her. Scheduled to release 9/1/2011.
A Necessary Deception by Laurie Alice Eakes - I've been wanting to give Laurie a second chance ever since I read her last novel, Lady in the Mist. It was a good book, but it just needed a little more focus. I'm hoping this next full-length novel will be better than her last. Scheduled to release 10/1/2011.
The Merchant's Daughter by Melanie Dickerson - Last, but certainly not least, is Melanie's second novel. Her first novel was wonderful, and it was young adult to boot (which I don't read a lot of)! What makes this book extra special is that it's scheduled to release ON my birthday, which, I believe, is a first since I've been reading CF devoutly for the past few years. ;o) Scheduled to release 11/29/2011.
Geez, after all that, I wish it was my birthday like, tomorrow! Oh, well...patience is a virtue, as my dad is known to say. I suppose I can wait. It's not like I don't have enough books to occupy me in the meantime! :o)
Thanks for stopping by!
