September Wrap Up

I read five books this month which is right on par with my normal reading. I enjoyed everything I read, and would recommend all of these books without reservation. I think Legacy of Mercy was my favorite. It was one of my most anticipated books of the year, and it did not disappoint. Here are the books I read in the month of September.


A Rumored Fortune
A Rumored Fortune

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I thought the mystery elements were well done, and I liked the characters. Tressa was a great female lead. I felt like it could have ended about twenty pages sooner. I got a bit bogged down towards the end. The romance was a little gushy for me as well. Thank you Netgalley for the free copy for review.

Waves of Mercy (Waves of Mercy, #1)

This was a reread for me. I wanted to refresh my memory before the sequel cam out. I did a full review here.

The Uncertain Season

I loved this historical fiction set in turn of the century Galveston. It was a great end of the summer book to read. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author. I really seem to click with her writing style.

I'd Rather Be Reading: The Delights and Dilemmas of the Reading Life

I enjoyed reading this little book of essays about the reading life. If you love books, you should pick this one up. It's really cute too. I have it sitting on my coffee table.

Legacy of Mercy (Waves of Mercy #2)

I was very excited when Lynn Austin announced she would be writing a follow up to Waves of Mercy. This was a great conclusion to the first story. She wraps up everyone's story, and even brings in some new characters to fall in love with. I could go back and visit Holland Michigan again and again. I loved how much the characters grew in there faith and how much they leaned on that faith when they faced trials and difficulties. I highly recommend this book to lovers of historical fiction. Just make sure you start with Waves of Mercy. Thank you Netgalley for the review copy.

What did you read this month? Let me know in the comments.

Can't Wait for The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter by Hazel Gaynor

What I'm waiting for:
The Lighthouse Keeper's Daughter

Why am I waiting? I read Last Christmas in Paris and The Cottingly Secret by Hazel Gaynor last year and enjoyed them both. I'm excited to read this one as well.
