I love reading. I would spend all day reading if I could! I don’t have that kind of time anymore. I read a little bit through out the day, though. Since I’m a fast reader, I can still get through books quickly. It still would be nice to have a whole day just to read!
Biographies are my all time favorite books to read. A very close second is Christian Historical Fiction. Which is why I was so happy when WaterBrook Multnomah sent me 2 books to review as part of their Spring Value Fiction Blog Tour.
My favorite way to read a series of books is to borrow the whole set from the library and read them one after the other!
Deep Harbor by Lisa Tawn Bergren
The Northern Lights Series
I hadn’t read Book One in this series, but the story was easy to pick up. In this book, the main characters are from Norway. As they are building their lives in America, they travel across the country, finally settling in Alaska at the end of the book. The book ended on a happy note. It was a good ending even if there were no other books in the series coming. But I also found myself wondering what happened to the characters after settling in Alaska.
This was a good book, and I will be looking for the rest of the books in the series. This was the first time that I have read a book by Lisa Tawn Bergren, and I will be looking for other books by her.
The second book they sent me to review is:
Faithful Heart by Al Lacy
Angel of Mercy Series: Book Two
I have read books by Al Lacy before. I have also read a couple of books with the main characters of this book. The books are in another series called the Stranger series.
This book has a helpful Prologue, so if you haven’t read any books in that series, or Book One of this series, it catches you up to speed.
This book is very action packed. I did find parts of this book a tad violet. The violence was part of a story line, not just violence thrown in for the sake of having violence. One of the characters is a Civil War veteran, who is suffering from shell shock.
I did like this book, in spite of the violence, and will be looking for Book One in this series, as well as additional books in the series.
