Mom's Favorite Fiction Reads (Favorite Books Friday)

Although I love posting about reading to  and with my kids, I also love to read great books for myself. I have a blog devoted to reviewing books. I reviews great reads I've found for myself as well as books that I review for a variety of publishers and book review sites. You can find all kinds of great book recommendations at Good Books for the Journey.

In today's Favorite Books Friday post, I'm sharing some of my recent favorite reads. Fiction is my favorite genre, although I can read pretty much anything. Here are a few of my recent favorites.

Favorite fiction books for moms to read

Ties That Bind by Cindy Woodsmall- Although I'm not always a fan of Amish fiction, this one by Cindy Woodsmall was a great read. It's also the first in a new series that I'm excited to keep reading. You can find my full review here.



The Abbess of Whitby by Jill Dalladay- I love historical fiction. I think it's probably my favorite genre. This book is set during the Middle Ages and, although it's fiction, it sticks very close to real events and people of the day. You can read my full review here.



A Cup of Dust by Susie Finkbeiner- This read is also historical fiction. It's set during the Dust Bowl, and event I knew very little about before reading this book. It's excellent fiction told from the point of view of Pearl, the young girl in the story. You can read my full review here.



Promise to Keep by Elizabeth Byler Younts- This fiction book is another Amish fiction that I really enjoyed. The author was new to me, but I loved the book and will certainly look out for others from her. You can read my full review here.


Lightning by Bonnie Calhoun- Lightning is actually the second full book in a science fiction, futuristic series. There are two full length books in the series and two novellas. The first novella- which comes before the first book in the series- is free on Amazon. You can find my full review of Lightning here.



Only With Blood by Therese Down- Only With Blood is set in Ireland during World War 2. Although I've read a little about the conflict between England and Ireland and the role of the IRA, I've never been aware of Ireland's position during World War 2 and the influence it had on their struggle for independence. You can find my full review here.


Luther and Katharina by Jody Hedlund- Martin Luther, the Father of the Reformation, is well-known, but I didn't know as much about his wife, Katherine. This historical fiction novel focuses on Katherine's life and her relationship with Luther. It's a great historical read as well as a sweet romance. You can find my full review here.



The Lost Garden by Katharine Swartz- This story of this book is told in a combination of current day events and historical flashbacks. It's set in a small English village and is the second book in a series, although it's fairly independent from the first. You can find my full review here.




These books are a good sampling of some of my recent fiction favorites. You can find more recommendations on Good Books for the Journey.
