Over 40 Summer Reads, how about you? (This blog post is only about Summer Reads Part Four :).)

I need books of the mystery genre.

Tell me how is it that I come back from the library with two books while I had returned just one book? Tell me how I tell my blog-readers that I have only over forty books to read when my list has come out to seventy books? I must find every book that an author has written when I have just read one good by that author that was written well.
I have added a few secular books to my reading list. The only books I shall be listing are in the Christian fiction genre.

On to the continuous list of books I shall read.

Obviously all of the words in this post are about books and are books. Some of these book titles are a little weird :P. I clarified that A Lady Of Hidden Intent is a book. I clarified A Lady Of Secret Devotion is a book. Of course those last two book titles are books but typing the book titles out I was like "I'm paranoid." I'm weird.

Well the next couple books are mystery suspense. Lately the only books I've foundlately are those historical ones. The historical genres are okay to read, suspenseful books are better reads :P.

iheartfaces.com's "Beach Fun".



A lot of people already know that I am an aspiring amateur photographer, I've been taking pictures of events for people, I take portrait pictures of people.
The site iheartfaces.com always has photo-challenges ever week of the year and the age starts from fourteen to above for amateur photographers and professional photographers.

The difference between amateur photographers and professional photographers might seem unfair for contest participants but even the site hosts made it clear that the only reason why you're a professional photographer is because you're being payed for your photos.

I decided to participate in the photo-contest this week of iheartfaces. The theme for the photo-blog is Beach Fun.
If you have any pictures of someone at the beach blessed with skill visit iheartfaces.com :).



This is my iheartfaces entry for their "Beach Fun" photo-contest :). Visit ihearfaces.com for more information to join in on their photo-fun!

God bless,

Over 40 Summer Reads, how about you? (Summer Reads Part Three)

Ready for even more books? I'm still in the middle of creating and editing my list but I officially have over 50 books to read and I'm still finding more that I have put on my list and randomly find through mutual authors I've read.

There are a lot of books so tighten the string on your reading glasses.

Now tell me what you're reading!

I have so many blogging ideas currently, but I'm working on finding verses for my "important posts" posts I've been thinking of. My Summer Reads Series is more like a filler for the time. I'd love to know what you all are reading though. I've gotten comments about authors and books. I really research the books I'm going to read and I added Erynn Mangum's site on my author list on my computer's "Favorite Books" list.

Over 40 Summer Reads, how about you? (Summer Reads Part Two)

This post is the continuation of Summer Reads Part One. I'm posting my to-read list that I have so far, and you post your to-read list in the comments of this post. Very simple how just posting a comment of the books you're excited about works, eh?

Anywho onwards to my list of to-read books.


13. Title: A Passion Denied
Series: Book #2 of The Daughters of Boston Series
Genre: Historical romance.
Author: Julie Lessman
Author’s site: JulieLessman.com

14. Title: A Passion Redeemed

Genre: Historical romance.
Author: Julie Lessman

15. Title: A Hope Undaunted
Series: Book #1 of The Winds of Change Series
Genre: Historical romance.
Author: Julie Lessman

I have not read the first book of The Daughters of Boston Series just because for now I do not believe that's a book I'm too interested in.

16. Title: Surrender the Heart
Series: Book #1 of the Surrender to Destiny Series
Genre: Romantic suspense/history
Author: MaryLu Tyndall
Author’s site: MLTyndall.com

19. Title: The Raven Saint
Series: Book #3 of The Charles Towne Belles Series
Genre: Historical romance.
Author: MaryLu Tyndall

I haven't read the first book to The Charles Towne Belles Series , as a matter of fact I haven't read any of MaryLu Tyndall's books. I found a book of hers at the bookstore in the Christian section, wrote down the title of the book, and then looked her up on Amazon and her site. There's only so much romance I can take in and certain types of romance. We'll see how I like MaryLu Tyndall.

20. Title: The Believer

Genre: Historical romance.
Author: Ann H. Gabhart

Author: Karen Kingsbury
Author’s site: KarenKingsbury.com

22. Title: Ever After
Series: Book #2 of The Lost Love Series
Genre: Inspirational romance.
Author: Karen Kingsbury

Honestly I've only heard of Karen Kingsbury's books, and looking up her site it looks like her only books are fictional books of marriage and not-my-type-romantic-books. I'm giving her a try but we'll see with Kingsbury.

23. Title: Grace In Thine Eyes
Genre: Fictional history.
Author: Liz Curtis Higgs
Author’s site: LizCurtisHiggs.com

24. Title: Bookends
Genre: Inspirational romance/history
Author: Liz Curtis Higgs

25. Title: Mixed Signals
Genre: Inspirational romance/history.
Author: Liz Curtis Higgs

Liz Curtis Higgs is a new author I'll be reading and I'm not too sure whether Mixed Signals is my type of inspirational romance, but I had the book on my list so we'll see about that book and her other books.


Obviously all of the books on my Summer Reads Series Part Two are books by authors I'e never read but I'll try the books out :). You may try the books out and tell me if you do because I'd love to know your opinion on some of these books!

God bless,
