Karen Kingsbury

Ok, so when I joined Alexis's book reading challenge I forgot to post it so that any of my reader's could join. Basically it's a challenge to read prizes, no competition, just some good old reading. Go to her site and find her post for the summer reading challenge (or just comment mine) and let Alexis know how many books you think you would like to read between now and Labor Day. Then post the challenge on your site (like I forgot to do) and then update us every so often, through posts, on your progress.

Anyway, I committed to ten books (I could probably do more, but I thought I should be a parent at some point too) and have now finished two. I read "A Thousand Tomorrows" and "One Tuesday Morning" both by Karen Kingsbury. She has a way of bringing out the emotions in her readers, but overall, she isn't my favorite author of all time. I liked "A Thousand Tomorrows" more than "One Tuesday Morning". I guess she just has some quirks that annoy me. I would still like to finish her Redemption series though.

I think I'm going to read a couple of books that will help me learn a little about "real" life next. I have a Ted Dekker and Gilbert Morris book on deck too. I KNOW I like these authors. Two down...eight to go. (Or more like two and a half down...:D)

Have you read anything by Dee Henderson? Another great author.

Happy reading!

I have one of her books...but I refuse to read it because when I picked it up I didn't realize it was a continuation of a first book. I need to find the first book so I can read BOTH of them.

I just finished The Road by Cormac McCarthy... I need something lighter to read now!!!

it's me, Val said...

I bought one of her books for my trip, but haven't had a chance to read it yet. Probably will be a while, but I do look forward to that moment when I can sit back and read my heart away . . :)
