I started Lisa Samson's book Straight Up. It's due to be released September 19th by Waterbrook. I've read about 1/3 of the story and so far I like it. This is one interesting novel. At first I was confused due to so many different characters and time periods, but then as I got to know the characters that no longer mattered. Lisa Samson is a master at making you care about the characters and creating realistic scenarios for them. There are no perfect Christians in this book. How refreshing!
I began The Gathering Storm by Barbara Warren. This book is also scheduled for release in September by Jireh Publishing. I'm still reading The Recital by Robert Elmer. That story has already been released so I'm not reading it as quickly as I would otherwise. The publisher is also Waterbrook and I'm about 1/4 of the way through the story. I also began Fury by Jack Cavanaugh. It's scheduled for release September 5th by Howard Publishing. So far it's definitely unique for a historical. I'm on chapter 4. I hope to post a review of this one on PastTimes blog when I'm finished. So many good books, so little time.
I received 8 books in the mail last week alone. Eek! Since I'm a little bit insane, I think I'll also start The Cubicle Next Door by Siri Mitchell tonight as it was just released August 8th by Harvest House. I love all of Siri's books! Since they're different genres I can do it, no problem. :)
