2018 Reading List

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 two of Irene Hannon's other series 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. Her Guardians of Justice series is next on my reading list!

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! 

By His Grace We Blog: The Perfect Resource for the Christian Blogger by Carmen Brown

Carmen Brown is such a doll and I love all her encouragement in this book. If you have ever thought about blogging or felt God calling you to blog I encourage you to pick up this book. By His Grace We Blog is filled with advice, specific action steps, and help specific to those bloggers that want to honor God in their work. 

More books coming soon!
