They’re talking about snow for Easter around here :p. But not much… thank goodness!
And with spring comes cleaning (ugh!) and reading (yay!) – so today let’s talk Spring Reading lists!
There’s ALWAYS wonderful InspyRomance books on their way (my next post is a sneak peek at my upcoming release!) and you can find the newest and upcoming releases on our books page!
But here’s some of the contemporary Christian Romance books, by non-InspyRomance authors, that I’m looking forward to! Ironically, three of them release on May 1. Pretty sure I’m going to have to set aside a couple of days to do nothing but READ!
Shoshanna Gabriel – The Rancher’s Convenient Pregnant Bride
If you haven’t read any of Shoshanna’s Bear Creek Saddle Series, you should! Shoshanna has an amazing story that she’s put at the beginning of each book. For many year she wrote… let’s say NOT InpsyRomance. Really not. But she came to know Christ and her writing is reflecting that! I’m loving the new series – her first as an inspy author.
Book 3, The Rancher’s Convenient Pregnant Bride, released not too long ago. It’s eyeing me from my kindle, and I hope to get to it this week. Fingers crossed!
Becky Wade – Falling for You
Becky’s books are sure winners for me! I’ve loved her (and her stories) since I read My Stubborn Heart not long after it released – and she used the phrase “It’s on like Donkey Kong!” With that in her writing, I knew I needed to be her friend! I’ve loved all of her books since and I Can. Not. Wait. for Falling for You, book 2 in the Bradford Sisters series!
Sadly, it doesn’t come out until May! Sigh! I may have to revisit My Stubborn Heart while I wait ;). Or maybe the prequel novella and book 1 in the series! They were both outstanding!
Kristin Billerbeck – The Theory of Happily Ever After
AH! This one is calling to me! The Theory of Happily Ever After ALSO doesn’t release until May! AH! I’ve read a couple of books by Kristin and thoroughly enjoyed them, but it’s been a while since I’ve read one of hers.
And it’s on a cruise ship! What could be better?! Except being on it myself ;). I’ve seen her posting about it on Facebook, along with early reviews coming in, and it sounds wonderful! I can’t wait for this one!
Denise Hunter – Honeysuckle Dreams
I love Denise Hunter’s books! It doesn’t sound like a marriage of convenience (which is pretty much my favorite trope ever), but engagement of convenience could be great fun too!
But since it doesn’t release until (wait for it!) May either, I may have to go on a Denise reading binge.
And of course she has plenty of books to binge on while I wait!
That’s four of the CCR books I’m looking forward to reading – but there’s also several historicals and romantic suspense I’m looking forward to, but those are a post for a different blog ;) (and a few clean-but-not-inspy contemporaries too).
Some of the ones I’m looking forward to are indies and they’re less likely to be posted already. Pepper Basham has a couple coming this year. So does Mikal Dawn. And so many of my fellow InspyRomance authors!
What books are you looking forward to? Contemporary Christian Romance, of course, but other (Christian) genres welcome in the comments too! One lucky commenter will get a copy of my upcoming release, A Royally Beautiful Mess, when it releases in a few weeks!
