Happy APRIL FOOLS' DAY!! I think the big joke is on those people who still have snow on the first day of April!! Being that it's the first Tuesday of the month, it's also time for the Bibliophile Files . . .
And that's no joke!!
I finished up all my March books and will be doing several reviews over the next few Saturdays. This month, my books practically chose themselves! My challenge is to read four books from the following categories: books that have been recommended, books I've borrowed from the lending library, books I'm reviewing (blogging for books), and books that are faith/walk strengtheners. So let's see what I've chosen (or rather, what chose me) . . .
This month's review book will be one of Beverly Lewis's--a favorite author who specializes in Amish fiction. It's book five in the Hickory Hollow series, The Last Bride. I've followed this series from beginning to end, so I'm looking forward to getting started on it! It's a new release, too, as of this morning!
A Rooster Once Crowed by Bryant Cornett is my "recommended book". I've heard good things about the both the author and the book and decided this month, the month of Easter, was a particularly good time to give it a read. I have to admit, I've already started turning the Kindle pages on this one -- it's going to be a quick read! (As of this morning, it was a freebie on Amazon, too!)
One of my favorite movies is Julie & Julia -- the story of a blogger (Julie Powell) who cooks/blogs her way through Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I'm tickled to say that Joc has a copy of MAFC and I will be looking through it today (Ellie Day! YAY!!) for a recipe for potage parmentier, aka potato and leek soup. But that's a story for another post, non?! When I saw my e-library had a digital copy of the book available for check out, I decided to grab it.
And finally, my faith strengthening book for this month will be Francis Chan's Forgotten God. We just started a new series in Sunday school and this is the book our series is based on. Our teacher (who is also our pastor) recommended we get and read the book, so I will. (I was always that kind of student!) I've read several of Francis Chan's other books and so I know this one will be terrific. This is a freebie for Amazon prime users!
So, that's where my nose will be for the next several weeks . . . what about yours??! Be sure to head over to sarah did it! and see what else is coming off the bookshelves for the month of April!!
