2018 Reading List

Fiction

Patrick Bowers Series by Steven James

I flew through these books as fast as I could get my hands on them. They are fast paced, intense, and kept me wanting more. They are considered Christian Fiction but they can get rather dark as Patrick Bowers is an FBI agent that deals with serial killers. I'm anxiously awaiting the next book (Every Wicked Man) which is due in September. 

The Jevin Banks Experience Series by Steven James

While I was waiting for more books from the Patrick Bowers series to show up for me I moved on to the Jevin Banks Experience. These were still entertaining but were not as face paced and hard to put down as the Patrick Bowers books. Still a great read and significantly less heavy, while still dealing with suspenseful and heavy topics. 

Men of Valor Series by Irene Hannon

I read some of Irene Hannon's other books last year (Private Justice and Code of Honor) so I grabbed the next series that the library had in full. Her books weave suspense and romance together in a way that isn't gag worthy because it's so cheesy. I can't handle the super swoony love stories but I'm okay if there are characters that fall for each other.

Guardians of Justice Series by Irene Hannon

Another great series from Irene Hannon. I love that I can pick up her books and get sucked in within a chapter or two. Sometimes I can figure out how the small details fit in to the larger story before all is revealed but often she leaves me guessing until the end! 

Heroes of Quantico Series by Irene Hannon

Are you sensing a theme here? If I find an author I enjoy I tend to keep reading anything I can find by the person until I hit a dead end. I've finished the first two books in this series and I'm currently reading book three. 

If I live by Terri Blackstock

This is the third and final book in the If I Run series. I randomly grabbed the first book off a shelf at the library two years ago and it threw me into the world of Terri Blackstock. I've read every one of her suspense books and they always teach me something new. Her characters are real with actual flaws and struggles. I highly recommend her! 

The O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson

One of my favorite finds this year! I flew through this entire series in less than a month... but out of the eight books I read half of them in a week! I couldn't put them down and felt for the characters deeply. That's what I want in a book!

Danger in the Shadows
Jennifer
The Negotiator
The Guardian
The Truth Seeker
The Protector
The Healer
The Rescuer

 

Non-Fiction

You Can Stay Home With Your Kids: 100 Tips, Tricks and Ways to Make It Work on a Budget by Erin Odom

I've been home with my kids for almost ten years now and I still found great advice in this book from Erin Odom of The Humbled Homemaker. Erin herself has struggled to make ends meet while being home with her kids and knows how hard it can be to drop that second income to follow your heart. She shares all her best advice in here for cutting costs, making DIY items to use around the house, and even having fun while still watching your spending. A perfect gift or great for yourself.
