Reader's Choice - Christian Fiction

GIVEAWAY


Help me replenish my dwindling TBR pile and plan my end of year reading by recommending new releases scheduled for publication in September, October, November or December 2017 and you could win one of the books you recommend. Here's how:

IT'S CHRISTIAN FICTION GIVEAWAY DAY!!!!!
 
To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title of the book(s) in the Christian Fiction genre you'd like to win. Please note: This is an open giveaway -- any Christian Fiction book published in September, October, November or December 2017 is eligible. You can choose books you've already entered on other days or select completely different ones. This is also a chance for readers who enjoy Women's Fiction, YA, Sci/Fi, Fantasy, novellas etc to have their say since those categories didn't have their own giveaway day.

How does it work?
Easy-peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win the draw, you win the book you suggested.

BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES!!!!!!
Publication dates must be
September, October, November or December 2017
Each day is genre specific so
only submit books from that genre
Christian Fiction books only please!
You can offer three suggestions per day
BUT
they need to be made in
three separate comments
(makes it easier for me to tally)
No email entries this week 
(too hard to keep track of due to the
# of responses)
Open to International readers (I'm all about spreading the Good News about Christian Fiction all over the globe!!!!!!)
Please remember to include your email, using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers. Draw will be held and winner announced on
Sunday August 20 2017.

  3. Lastly, I keep coming back to this one for some reason written by a completely new-to-me author. The premise intrigues me.

    #3 The Space Between Words by Michele Phoenix~ September 2017

    1. Oh wow -- The Space Between Words sounds really intriguing. And hard to peg a genre -- a little bit suspense, contemp and maybe dual timeline if only from the diary passages. Uber cool. Good luck, Trixi.

    2. This book sounds awesome! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I have Susie Finkbeiner's first two books in this series that begin during the Great Depression - again, a favorite era of mine when reading historical fiction. This next one sounds like it is a bit later.

  6. I've had this on my Amazon wish list since I first saw it and I'm taking a chance listing it here as a choice since this is a new-to-me author. The premise sounds like a book I would really enjoy.

    The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck by Bethany Turner

    1. I'm excited about that new YA book as well, Terrill! And someone mentioned The Secret Life of Sarah Hollenbeck on an earlier day -- it does sound interesting, doesn't it? New-to-me author too. I've never read anything by Susie Finkbeiner -- didn't realize this one was the third in a series. Must check that out. My wishlist is bulging! Good luck, Terrill.

  27. There's been some buzz in the Avid Readers of Christian Fiction group on FB about Bethany Turner's new book by Revell. Everyone seams to be looking forward to it. It's such an interesting topic. What do you do when your pre-Christian job is writing steam romances and then you get saved? What will the ladies at church think when they find out? I really want to know how this author handles this subject.
