The Literary Dinner Party Tag :)

The Literary Dinner Party Tag!.png

 

Hello and Happy Monday! For today’s “open-catagory” post, I am going to do…
The Literary Dinner Party Tag!
In a round-about-way, I was tagged by Faith of Stories by Firefly ~ see, she tagged anyone who was wearing socks while reading her post, and I was, so here I am :D It looks like a fun tag, and I’m looking forward to sharing the characters I chose for the answers!

1// A Character who can/likes to cook:

I want to say the name of a character in a novel that is not yet published (that’d be because it’s not finished yet…), but I will do my best to name characters in already published works. So… I would say, Rylan of “One Enchanted Eve” by Melissa Tagg – while she primarily ‘bakes’, I think she and Colin could produce a scrumptious feast. :)
One Enchanted Eve (Enchanted Christmas Collection #2)
2// A Character who has the money to fund this party:
King Hezekiah  and Queen Hephzibah of “Isaiah’s Daughter” by Mesu Andrews – they’re King and Queen, so yes, they can afford this. :D
Isaiah's Daughter (Prophets and Kings, #1)
3// A Character that might cause a scene:
Freydis – I can just picture her at a dinner party and it not going so well…!
Forest Child (Vikings of the New World Saga, #2)
4// A Character who is amusing:
Sarah Hollenbeck – not sure if she’ll mean to be amusing, but it will be hysterical nonetheless!
The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck
5// A Character who is super popular
Lukas De Wilde  – yep.
A Song Unheard (Shadows Over England, #2)
6// One Villain:
Alex Martin – okay, he’s not really a villain at all. And he has his good qualities. Buuuut, well, yeah. Just gonna leave it at that. ^.^
Pit of Ambition, Book II in The Caselli Family Series
7// One couple – doesn’t have to be romantic:
I could come up with a thousand…but I will go with: Violet Hawthorne and Vance Everstone. <3
The Cautious Maiden (The Everstone Chronicles, #4)
8// One hero:
Walter <3
A Distant Melody  (Wings of Glory, #1)
9// One underappreciated character:
Chiara – I adore her, and her tenacity for life!
   Destiny Defied (The Destiny Series #1)  Destiny Delivered (The Destiny Series #2)  Destiny Defended: Rakshasa's Curse (The Destiny Series #3)
10// One character of your own choosing:
Again, I could choose a ton, but I’m going to go with Josey. :) Love her!
Everything's Coming Up Josey (Josey, #1)
And that brings us to the end of this tag!! I tag anyone who loves books and wants to do this ;)
Are you familiar with any of the characters I named?

“Guilt by Association” by Heather Day Gilbert ~ Book Review

Review (1)

 

“Guilt by Association” by Heather Day Gilbert

Book Three in the “A Murder in the Mountains” series

Review copy from author, being a launch team member

My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

 

 

 

About the Book:

Tess Spencer hadn’t planned on returning to her hometown, but when her ex-prisoner mom puts in a special request, Tess overcomes her hesitance to help her turn over a new leaf.

Pearletta Vee’s drug-dealing past is resurrected when the body of an overdosed teen shows up—right next to her trailer. Tess decides to stick around and investigate, yet the evidence is stacked against Pearletta. Tess suspects a setup—but why?

Never one to back down from a challenge, Tess takes on a wayward teen, an abusive grandma, and more than one drug dealer in her quest for the truth. But it’s going to take a miracle to keep her from becoming a casualty in her own personal war on drugs.

Plunging into the shadowy reality of the drug epidemic in West Virginia, Guilt by Association is the third book in the award-winning Murder in the Mountains mystery series.

 

 

 

My Thoughts:

 

:D  <—- That’s how I feel to be reading a Heather Day Gilbert book. I love her writing!
“Guilt by Association” was an absolutely excellent read. So very easy to get into, and if I could, I would’ve read it straight through – I can’t do that with a lot of books (weird quirk of mine) but I could have easily done that with this book if only time had allowed. But I so enjoyed the time I got to spend within its pages.
The mystery was very well-done, gripping to the end, yet not overly…disturbing. I hope that makes sense! There are definitely some dark murder-mystery books out there, but I don’t think Guilt by Association was dark at all, which I appreciate. It was serious without being morbid.
The drug involvement was fascinating, sharing facts I hadn’t previously been aware of. I am thankful the author included this subject and so smoothly worked it in, educating her readers a bit. I was impressed.
And of course, I absolutely loved revisiting the characters! Tess Spencer is such a strong lead character, and so enjoyable to follow along with.
Truly, reading this book was pure pleasure, and felt so realistic, so believable.
The mystery had me curious till the end, with a very satisfying conclusion. And that ending!!! Oh my word, I teared up. Yes, the ending conclusion to the mystery itself was fantastic, but the last page….yep, it hit me right here (imagine me pointing to my heart ;)). You’ll just have to read the book to find out what I mean!
So good. I don’t know what else to say other than that I loved it, enjoyed every minute of it, was impressed, and definitely recommend this series to good-mystery-suspense-homey fiction! I think “Guilt by Association” may actually be my favourite of the series so far! And I hope there’s more books to come, because…yes, very much-needed, in my opinion!! I don’t want to be done with this series. :)
profits
And look! If you buy a copy of this book this month, you will be helping an excellent cause. So do go pick up a copy of this book! (And the first 2 books in this series!)

The Big Ol’ Wrap Up

It’s that time of year….where we wrap up this previous year and prepare for the new. On my blog, that mainly means: Books. ^.^
And because I am doing this post, I won’t be doing the Monthly-Wrap up of books like I often do. I did aquire some good books in December, but I didn’t actually read many at all. In fact, all I read was a short story (“Last Wish: a Short story” by Valerie Howard) –  I started “Wives and Daughters” by Elizabeth Gaskell at the beginning of the month, and am just finishing it now, so I’ll count it for 2016 but I’m afraid I may finish it on the first. XD. It’s a 600 page book, heavy English. But very good! :)
Anyway…
I read quite a few books during 2016; not quite as many as I was hoping for, but still a good amount, rounding out at a total of 63 books, and a total of 15,048 pages, according to Goodreads.
I won’t list them all, because that’d take time I don’t really have, and some people (most?!) probably won’t care. XD If you *want* to see what all books I’ve read, you can check out my Goodreads page here: https://www.goodreads.com/user/year_in_books/2016
In this post what I *will* be doing, is listing some of my favourites. I read quite a few good ones, so narowing it down is always hard. I’ll try to just list 5.  So, shall we?
blog-2016
Family Lies, Deadly Ties by J.A. Marx. This was a 5 star book for sure. I loved it.
Land of Silence by Tessa Afshar – Mrs.Afshar does it again, writing a brilliant, heart-touching, encouraging read!
Forest Child by Heather Day Gilbert – This is an easy one for “Best of 2016” for sure. Absolutely magnificent!
The Cautious Maiden by Dawn Crandall – My first Dawn Crandall book and it was amazing. So sweet!
Light of the Last by Chuck Black. – A fantastic ending to a great series!
But I can’t forget these other amazing books that I thoroughly enjoyed:
Like Never Before, Keep Holding On, and One Enchanted Christmas, all by Melissa Tagg – all of these were SO good! So cute.
Anchor in the Storm by Sarah Sundin  – one simply cannot go wrong with a Sarah Sundin book! Her WWII fiction is fantastic.
…and so many more books. ^.^
NonFiction: I only read a few, but two of my favourites were these:
“I, Isaac, take thee, Rebekah” by Ravi Zacharias and “I Dare You” by Isabella D. Morganthal.
Honourable Fiction Mentions:
“If He Lives” by Sarah Holman
“Counted with the Stars” by Connilyn Cosette
“Long Way Gone” by Charles Martin
“Miriam” by Mesu Andrews
“The Flaming Sword” by Heather FitzGerald
Augh, do you know how hard it is to narrow down great books?! I realize a lot of you do. ^.^
So, what do I plan to read in 2017? Um…well…I’d like to get through my TBR bookshelves! XD That’s a lofty goal. But realisitcally, I really would like to check off a couple on my shelf that have long been waiting to be read. I also want to reread the first book and novella in the Ilyon Chronicles, and continue on with that series, and also reread The Time of Grace Series by Alicia Ruggieri, finally getting to read the third one! I have many other “To Read”s though. We’ll see what get’s done! What is on your 2017 Read List? Did you have a favourite book of 2016?
Here’s to a year of pleasurable reading!

Book Review: “Forest Child” by Heather Day Gilbert

I’m so excited to share about this book. Why? Because I adored it. But I’ll get to that in my review…

 

Forest Child (Vikings of the New World Saga, #2)

 

Forest Child by Heather Day Gilbert

Book Two in The Vikings of the New World Saga

 

About the Book:

Viking warrior. Dauntless leader. Protective mother.

Determined to rise above her rank as the illegitimate “forest child” of Eirik the Red, Freydis launches a second voyage to Vinland to solidify her power and to demand the respect she deserves. She will return home with enough plunder to force her brother, Leif, to sell her the family farm in Greenland.

But nothing can prepare her for the horrors she must confront in Vinland…and nothing can stand in her way when her family is threatened.

In her race to outrun the truths that might destroy her, Freydis ultimately collides with the only enemy she cannot silence—her own heart.

Historically based on the Icelandic Sagas, Forest Child brings the memorable, conflicted persona of Freydis Eiriksdottir to life. This immersive tale is Book Two in the bestselling Vikings of the New World Saga.

 

My Review:

 

I devoured this book. Wow. How does one put coherent words together after reading a Heather Day Gilbert book? I’m blown away each time.
Ever since reading “God’s Daughter” (book one in this series), a year or two ago, I was hooked and anticipating a sequel. And it’s finally here! “Forest Child” was amazing. And raw. And…a little shocking, yes, disturbing, maybe….but still amazing. Mrs. Gilbert captures the Viking life-style in such a real way. It is so beautiful. I love her books so much!
It was so great getting to really know Freydis more through this book, and reading through her point of view. She could be frustrating (she didn’t always listen to my advice. ;)) but I loved her. What a strong character. The lessons she learned too were so good.
When I read both “God’s Daughter” and “Forest Child”, it is very much like watching a person’s life unfold before you. It’s so very real, and you’re swept away in it. Each character is so well-constructed, it isn’t any trouble imagining them as the real life characters they are.
Now, this book is not for the faint of heart. No, it was rather gruesome to be honest. There were several parts that were hard to read. But also key to the story. So yes, they were on the gruesome side, but it gave understanding to the reader. It helped shape and mold the story.
They’re Vikings, after all. And vikings weren’t all cushy, always nice people. Mrs. Gilbert shows their strengths and weaknesses very well.
I loved it though. Absolutely. Reading it felt so good, and I can’t wait to read it again. Describing The Sagas best would be by saying they are real and raw.  And so well written.
So yes, in conclusion, this book met my expectations so very much so. I would highly recommend it be read by a mature audience, probably no younger than 18 or so, because of the unfavorable events shown in this book.
However, those of you who love a good Viking historical series with real depth, these books are for you. :)
Thank you SO much to Heather Day Gilbert for providing a copy of this book! Reading and reviewing it has been my pleasure. :)

Book Review: “Trial by Twelve” by Heather Day Gilbert

http://www.amazon.com/Trial-Twelve-Murder-Mountains-Book-ebook/dp/B00VYWIASC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429553988&sr=8-1&keywords=trial+by+twelve+by+heather+day+gilbert

“Trial by Twelve” by Heather Day Gilbert

Book 2 in the Murder in the Mountains series   releases May 30th 2015

Review source: ecopy from the author

My rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars

About the book:

Tess Spencer loves her low-key job at the Crystal Mountain Spa, which allows her plenty of down-time with her one-year old daughter and lawyer husband, Thomas. But when a pool installation turns up eight skeletons in the spa’s back yard, Tess becomes entangled in a sleuthing job destined to go awry.
As the investigation gets underway, someone dumps a fresh body near the excavated burial site, confirming unspeakable fears. A serial killer has returned to Buckneck, West Virginia…a skilled hunter with a unique taste in prey.
When Tess agrees to help the cunning Detective Tucker gather clues from the inside, she discovers the posh spa hides more than dead bodies. Even as she sifts through layers of deceit, Tess realizes too late that the killer’s sights have zeroed in on her.

My thoughts:

Wow! What a spectacular, on-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery! I read this book as fast as I possibly could – I needed to know who the killer was.
Heather Day Gilbert has a gift for writing, and I just love how smoothly and well-crafted every book comes out.
“Trial by Twelve” was thrilling, and I think, even better than the first in this series. It was truly riveting. :) And so realistic! The characters were so real to me, and felt so familiar. It was great ‘visiting’ the characters from the first book – felt so homey. :)
And Mrs. Gilbert sure knows how to write crazies for characters – goodness, the killer was creepy! But the Christianity in this book was stronger than the last, and I believe shown nicely. I could always go for some more (I love me some God-centered books) but I know a lot of people prefer the subtleness of faith in books. This had that ‘vibe’ to it. One of the quotes I liked and high-lighted on my kindle copy was this:

“Her [Miranda] numerous biblical commentaries and Bible notebooks remind me of how close she walked with God. I feel so inadequate in the face of her faith, but I know she’d tell me we each grow at our own speed and the point is to be growing,” – location 3088

Sometimes it was a little weird that Tess never filled her husband in on some things, but I guess I can still understand how that happens in some marriages. Not being married myself doesn’t give me the point of position to know for sure. ;)
One thing that I was just ‘ehhh’ on was the comment about her baby and cat being hyper because of a full-moon. I’ve heard that before, but I’m just not so sure about that.

But all in all, I really enjoyed this book – this mystery! – and am looking forward to more from Mrs. Gilbert! Oh and the cover is lovely, isn’t it? I think it’s beautiful! Thank you so much, Mrs. Gilbert, for allowing me to be one of your early readers!

I received a complimentary ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

Okey-doke, I think that brings this to a close! How has your week been and what has it been full of?

Book I read during 2014

Another year is coming to a close. Seems so soon, doesn’t it?

This past year I’ve been able to read quite a few lovely books! In fact, I’ve read over 50 this year, which is a new record for me. :) I thought I would share what books I read this year, and which ones absolutely touched me and remain on my ‘favourite’ list!

The last one “At Home in Last Chance” will be reviewed in January).

 

So that is it – or at least most of them. These are the ones I added on Goodreads (and the images are from that site as well); there were a couple others that I read, but forgot to add to GR…

As some of you may remember, a good percent of these were review books. I liked more than half of the books I read, which is always a good thing! As for my favourites, it is really hard to choose, and the list might be too long, so I will try to keep it short and list one the ones that I super loved (in no order):

“God’s Daughter” by Heather Day Gilbert

“The Well” and “The Thief” by Stephanie Landsem

“Visible Threat” by Janice Cantor

“Pearl in the Sand” (though I’ve read it numerous times before), and “In the Field of Grace” by Tessa Afshar

“For Such a Time” by Kate Breslin

“Daisies are Forever” by Liz Tolsma

“The Cross Centered Life” by C.J. Mahaney (oh my word was this amazing!! Everyone should read this)

Like I said, there were many!! I truly adored each of these books and they made huge impacts on my life. :)

So, what books did you read this past year, and which made it to your favourites? I’d love to hear!

Book Review: “Miranda Warning” by Heather Day Gilbert

“Miranda Warning”

By Heather Day Gilbert

A Murder in the Mountains Novel

Number of pages: 357

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

{To read description, see cover, and find out more about the author, visit my previous post, here: https://godspeculiartreasurerae.wordpress.com/2014/05/25/new-book-coming-out/ )

 

The book was captivating from the first page.  I had my e-copy downloaded on both our desktop computer and my small laptop and would read it whenever and wherever I had the chance. I really do love Heather Day Gilbert’s writing style. There is something about it that is so easy to read, and so engaging. Once again, as with her book, “God’s Daughter”, Mrs. Gilbert forms very life-like, relate-able, and very strong characters. At some points, the main character, Tess, reminded me of a modern-day Gudrid, which I liked. But Tess also had so many characteristics of her own that made her a complete separate character as well. I really liked her husband’s character, Thomas, as well as his little brother, Petey. Miranda was a superb character as well. Really, all of them were so well constructed. But yes, onto the story itself.

A Murder Mystery.  “Miranda Warning” had so many twists and turns, and unexpected occurrences, and it wasn’t all solved until the very ending. It was well done, the putting together of it. It was like a slow-forming puzzle. A piece here, a piece there, and finally you see the whole picture at the end. Every piece of the mystery explained.

However, there were a couple things I was a bit uncomfortable with, to be honest. The book showed the reality of demons, and even possible demon possession, but did not show the Triumphing Power of our Savior who overcomes everything and covers us with His light and protection.

 

SPOILER ALERT:  Yes, I know that Rose needed to seem like she was struggling and even loosing her mind,  (END OF SPOILER)

 

…but I believe that you shouldn’t provide the presence of demons without giving the readers the next step of what to do about them. Because I know that I personally felt a little creepy after reading those parts, and I thankfully know to pray cleansing and Jesus’ protection, but I fear that some readers will not know what to do with that feeling of the presence of demons. Because yes, I do believe there are demons and they are present wherever one gives them room, but Christ gives us the power to kick them out.  I just would have liked to have seen the message of Jesus a bit more pronounced and more centered to the story.

I also was a little curious to the fact that there were some obvious tension-filled moments between Tess and her husband, Thomas, and it didn’t seem to be completely resolved in the end, nor pointing to the fact that God can heal the struggles between them.

Now, please keep in mind that I am not complaining – out of 357 pages, this is all I disagreed with or was not comfortable with.  I really did enjoy this book very much, there were just some things that I wish could’ve been a little different.

The story was thoroughly enjoyable, and very hard to put down! The characters were well thought out, and well written. I was pleased with this read to be sure! (Oh and Heather Day Gilbert has a Pinterest Board of Miranda Warning inspiration pins that I thought fit the story very well! It’s always fun to see how the author themselves picture their characters and everything!)

 

I received an e-copy of this book for free from the author in exchange for my honest and unbiased review which I have given. All thoughts and opinions are my own

New book coming out!

Hello my loverly readers!

Today I am sharing about a book that is coming out on the 20th of June. So keep that date in mind.

Oh, what’s that? I haven’t said what book is coming out on that date?  I wish I could say my own, but alas that is not the case. HOWEVER, the book that IS coming out is a very exciting one! Do you remember when I reviewed the book, “God’s Daughter” by Heather Day Gilbert? (If not, you can go read it here: https://godspeculiartreasurerae.wordpress.com/2014/01/27/gods-daughter-by-heather-day-gilbert-an-excellent-viking-read/) Well, that same splendid author has another book coming out, that is the first book in a new series! Introducing:

 

Miranda Warning by Heather Day Gilbert   …. release date June 20th 2014

Miranda Warning (A Murder in the Mountains, #1)

As you can see, the cover is very intruiging (at least I think so! I like it).  Would you like to read what it’s about? Well, look no further:

 

Child of the Appalachian mountains, Tess Spencer has experienced more than her share of heartache. The Glock-wielding, knife-carrying housewife knows how to survive whatever life throws at her. 

But when an anonymous warning note shows up in her best friend Miranda’s mailbox—a note written in a dead woman’s handwriting—Tess quickly discovers that ghosts are alive and well in Buckneck, West Virginia. Hot on a cold trail, she must use limited clues and her keen insight into human nature to unmask the killer…or the next victim might be Tess herself.

Tinged with the supernatural and overshadowed by the mountains’ lush, protective presence, this twisting psychological mystery is the first in A Murder in the Mountains series.

 

So, it promises to be an interesting read! Mrs. Gilbert has kindly sent me an ARC and so I have already begun to read – it has captured my attention immediately! I really love Heather Day Gilbert’s writing style.  As soon as I finish the book, I will post my review on my blog here as well. :)

Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out Heather Day Gilbert’s site:

Character Love

My literary crush is

 

I have a list. No, I’m serious. That is what I am posting. :D  I have a tendency to, well, fall in love with good, strong, (and most of the time, gruff,) guys in books.  Not every book, mind you, but when a book has one of those kind of guys, it’s hard not to fall in love. ;) So, without further ado, here is my list. And it’s not in order, because I couldn’t choose who’d be first. :)

  • Mr. Thornton of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell
  • Captain Wentworth of Persuasion by Jane Austen
  • Loginus of The Thief by Stephanie Landsem
  • Aric of For Such a Time by Kate Breslin
  • Mitch  of Daisies are Forever by Liz Tolsma
  • Xavier of Daisies are Forever by Liz Tolsma
  • Jace of Heart of India series by Linda Chaikin
  • Sir Bentley of the Knights of Arrethtrae series (“Sir Bentley and the Holbrook Court”) by Chuck Black
  • Salmone  of Pearl in the Sand by Tessa Afshar
  • Snorri Thorbrandsson of  God’s Daughter by Heather Day Gilbert
  • Enosh of The Well by Stephanie Landsem
  • Darius of Harvest of Rubies/Harvest of Gold by Tessa Afshar
  • Prince Turveydrop of Bleak House by Charles Dickens (No snickering, please).

I think that is about it…though I’m sure I’m missing some ;)

I definitely have favourite female characters too, but haven’t yet created that list. Maybe I’ll work on that soon. :)

Who are your favourite male and female characters, and why?
