Here we are, in the middle of another November. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, you’re likely sipping hot cocoa and ready to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good read. Am I right? Who doesn’t love a great book on a cold, blustery day?

 

Fiction Favorites

Here’s a compilation of some of my favorite fiction titles and authors, new and old. Go ahead and add them to your holiday shopping list. Then come back and tell me which ones you enjoyed best! Happy reading!

 

SecretsOfACharmedLifeCOVER

 

My review of Susan Meissner’s book, Secrets of a Charmed Life, is the most-clicked book review I’ve ever written. People find it every day. Secrets of a Charmed Life was also nominated in GoodReads’ Top Historical Fiction books of 2015. Read my review here.

I’m so excited to be reviewing Susan’s latest novel, Stars Over Sunset Boulevard, which is now available for pre-order and is set to release in early 2016.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dear Mr. Knightley by Katherine Reay was fantastic. I’ve recommended this book so many times, and each person who read it has come back and told me they loved it. I can’t wait to read Katherine’s newest novel, The Bronte Plot, which just released this past month.

You can’t go wrong with Lynn Austin. I’ve enjoyed every book of hers that I’ve read, including the Chronicles of the Kings series, the Refiner’s Fire series, and several stand alone books. Get A Candle in the Darkness for FREE on Kindle by clicking here!

 

JusticeGameCover

 

Randy Singer is a fantastic suspense novelist. If you’re looking for John Grisham-like books, check out titles like The Justice Game, By Reason of Insanity, and Fatal Convictions.

Emily Wierenga’s debut novel, A Promise in Pieces, will make you smile and sigh and maybe even cry. Beautifully written. AND — the paperback version is only $5.98 right now! Read my review by clicking here.

 

 

My favorite Francine Rivers book is The Last Sin Eater. I was also really moved by Redeeming Love and The Atonement Child.

 

 

 

I had the privilege of attending two writers’ conferences in October, and heard some fantastic talks given by the names listed below. Can’t wait to dig into their work!

  1. I totally agree with you on Secrets of a Charmed Life! It was the first book I read by Susan Meissner and I loved it! She had me hooked from the start, I couldn’t wait to see how it ended. After I finished it, I read The Girl in the Glass, have you read that one? I thought it was also quite good. Looking forward to her newest coming out!
    Thanks for the recommendations!

    • Hi Hannah! The first book I read by Susan Meissner was Lady in Waiting — SO GOOD! I’ve also read A Fall of Marigolds, which has stayed with me ever since. Can’t wait to read her newest book as well! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Kate, your book selections sound good. I’ve enjoyed every Susan Meissner book I’ve read. I downloaded Cup of Dust. I’ll be eager to dig into it. ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of my favorite fall reads is The Wedding Chapel, by Rachel Hauck. It actually releases tomorrow. So good!
