This week’s list could also be titled “books which impacted me”. It also includes books that live long in my memory thanks to a great story or interesting characters.


Blackmoore –  I love the Bronte-esque vibes of this story about two friends who are secretly in love with each other, but can’t be together. It’s so full of longing.

Price of Privilege Series – There aren’t enough words to describe the excellence of this story or how it impacted my heart.

Carry Me Home – This one features a memorable setting off the coast of Australia and characters which grabbed my heart. My review

What the Wind Knows – I’ve never not loved an Amy Harmon book, but the circular time line of this one along with the lyrical telling of the story ensured that this one sticks out in my mind. My review

Pearl in the Sand – I have gifted multiple copies of this book to friends because I love the way this story tackles the shame of the main character.

The Lady and the Lion Heart – The tender-hearted, lion-taming hero made this circus story an exceptional one. My review

Beautiful in His Sight – I love historical fiction, especially when it focuses on a historical event I am unfamiliar with like this one does. I also appreciate it when a story like this explores deeper meanings of life.

The Girls in the Picture – I know I’ve mentioned this one ALOT! But it was one of the first fictionalized biographies I’d read and loved. And it inspired me to learn more about silent film history and the influence women have had on Hollywood. My review

In Spite of Lions – I have NEVER read a book like this before and I’ve rarely felt so much a part of the story that I was almost living it, like I did with this one. This one features a fictional heroine but real life historical figures. One of those figures was an African tribal chief who is one of the most interesting characters I’ve ever read. My review

        1. Ugh. That’s hard to say. It depends on what type of story you are in the mood for. Songbook is more gritty and set in the 1970’s music scene. What the Wind Knows is lyrical and set during the Irish Rebellion.
