Spring Reading Thing 2009

It's time for the Spring Reading Challenge, hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. This is always a fun time of intentional reading. One of my favorite things to do is to curl up with a good book. (I'm sure that comes as quite a shock!)

I've got a bit of a stack growing, and there are several books releasing over the next few days and weeks that I am eagerly awaiting. And I'm quite sure my list will grow after my little trip to the Christian Book Expo this weekend! (Maybe yours will, too!)

But for now, here's my list:
The Inheritance by Tamera Alexander - a stand-alone Women of Faith Novel
Beyond this Moment by Tamera Alexander - releases April 1
Yesterday's Embers by Deborah Raney - #3 in her Clayburn Novels series; releases Tuesday (3/24)
A Killing Frost by Hannah Alexander - start of a new series a great husband/wife writing team (LOL - no relation to Tamera; Hannah Alexander is a pen name!)
Finally Alive by John Piper
Salty Like Blood: A Novel by Harry Kraus, MD - available next Tuesday (3/24)
Plain Pursuit by Beth Wiseman - the second novel from a gifted author; releases April 28
Journey by Angela Hunt - final novel in the reprinted series about the family of Joseph; releases April 1
Talking to the Dead: A Novel by Bonnie Grove - releases May 1
Ambushed by Grace: Help & Hope on the Caregiving Journey by Shelly Beach
The Note II; Taking a Chance on Love by Angela Hunt - releases May 1; when Angie's novel The Note was made into a Hallmark movie, it was such a hit that they made a sequel and Angie was asked to write the novelization.

Okay, I better stop! Come along and join us! It's always fun to see what others are reading!

If you are new to the Spring Reading Thing, you can read about the general idea HERE and find additional guidelines for participating HERE. And some additional info about prizes and other miscellany is here.

Thanks to Katrina for hosting this!

And Happy Reading!!

I honestly cannot figure out how you and Susanne have kids and blogs and still read so much. Amazing.

Ooh -- several of those are new to me and look good. My TBR list increases exponentially with these challenges!

I have the first of Beth Wiseman's books on my list and am looking forward to it.

I love reading. It does seem like lately I haven't been sitting down as often as I used to with a good book.
I think I'll check out a few of your titles.

Have a great day!

When I opened Katrina's post today and saw your name listed, a big grin formed on my face. :) I enjoy reading your blog and reading about your reading so much!

Great list! Have fun at the expo. :)

Katrina said...

Great list, Linda! Salty Like Blood looks like a book I'd enjoy, and I've already been eyeing up Piper's Finally Alive.

Enjoy all your spring reading, and thanks for joining the challenge!

It's been a while since I read a Hannah Alexander book. I'll have to look for that one ... after my challenge books are done, of course! :)
