So recently I’ve blogged about good books for boys and good books for girls. Today I’m going to post about some of the really good books I’ve been reading lately. I blog regularly about reading and book reviews over at my Leah’s Good Reads blog. So today, I’m going to link up to some of the reviews for really good books I’ve read recently.

The Sky Beneath My Feet by Lisa Samson- I love any books by Lisa Samson. She writes in a down to earth way with characters who are believable and likable. Her books are Christian fiction and always have an inspiring message without being preachy.

A Noble Groom by Jody Hedlund. Jody Hedlund is an author I stumbled upon by accident. I was reading a book called The Preacher’s Bride (also an excellent one!), and I really loved it. When I came to the end, I found out that is was based on the story of John Bunyan and his young wife. A Noble Groom is also based on true accounts of German immigrants who came to America and moved out West to farm. The story is engaging, the characters are believable. And there is a sweet, but not sappy, romance.

An Open Heart by Harry Kraus. I’ve read other medical suspense from Harry Kraus. I’ve enjoyed all he’s written. In An Open Heart a former missionary kid travels back to Africa when he thinks he has a message from his deceased sister. There are some supernatural elements as well as intrigue and suspense and a good spiritual message.

Wishing on Willows by Katie Ganshert. This was a new to me author that I really enjoyed. A story about a young widow and her desire to hold on to a coffee shop that belonged to her and her husband, this novel had a sweet romantic story line but still on touched on some pretty deep issues of grief and moving on.

Widow of Gettysburg by Jocelyn Green. I haven’t quite finished this one yet, so my review isn’t posted. It’s the story of a young woman living in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania during the infamous battle of the Civil War. It is written based on actual letters found from woman who were in Gettysburg during the battle. I am loving it. The Civil War is one of my favorite time periods about which to read. There are so many difficult aspects to consider, and this book is touching many- slavery, prejudice, loyalty, and the consequences of a divided nation. This is one of those books that I can’t wait to finish because I want to read the resolution, but I am going to be so sad to see it end.

These are some of the favorite books I’ve been reading. Have you read anything memorable lately? Leave me a comment and let me know.
