Reader's Choice - Christian Fiction

GIVEAWAY


It's time to help me plan my New Year reading (and future giveaways) by recommending new releases (publication dates January, February or Mach 2018) and you have a chance to win one of the books you recommend! Remember to read all the details before entering!


IT'S CHRISTIAN FICTION GIVEAWAY DAY

To be entered in the draw just leave a comment (or 3) below, including the title(s) of the book(s) in the Christian Fiction genre you would like to win.


Christian Fiction

Any genre, including previous selections you've made on other days and also for specific genres not already covered -- like Novellas, Women's Fiction, Speculative Fiction, Sci-Fi etc.


How does it work?

Easy-peasy! Make recommendations in the comment section each day and if you win, you win the book you suggested.

BUT YOU GOTTA FOLLOW THE RULES!

Publication dates must be 
January, February or March 2018
Each day is genre specific so
only submit books from that genre
Christian Fiction books only please!
You can offer up to 3 suggestions a 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 
# of responses)
NEW - entrants must submit their own selections 
(not piggyback on someone else's logon) - NEW
Open to International Readers 
I'm all about spreading the good news about Christian Fiction 
all over the globe!!!!

It's helpful if you include your email (using AT and DOT instead of @ and . to protect yourself from spammers) but you only need to add it to one of your comments (per day). If you choose not to include your email then it's up to you to contact me if you are a winner.


Draw will be held and winner announced on 
Saturday December 23 2017

  1. These open-ended category days are SO hard because there's SO many great books coming out! My list could be as long (or longer) than Santa's list...haha!! But I'm ready after much deliberation and many hours staring at all the great covers/titles for all the books I've put on my TBR pile for 2018. Here goes:

    1. The Mayflower Bride by Kimberley Woodhouse (Daughters of the Mayflower book 1) February 2018

    ReplyDelete
  2. How about some Biblical fiction?

    2. The Light on the Hill by Connilyn Cossette (Cities of Refuge book 1) February 2018

    ReplyDelete
  3. And for my last choice a novella set...

    3. Seven Brides for Seven Texas Rangers by various authors ~March 2018~

    1. LOL -- I know, at least with the genre days we have to channel our focus somewhat but whatever way you look at it --- so many books, so little time -- sums it up. :-) Good luck, Trixi.

    1. I know a few people have asked for Susan Meissner's book on a previous day and I included it, not realizing it was with a non Christian publisher. However on her blog she mentions how she read a really good 5 star book but she couldn't recommend it because of profanity and sex scenes so hopefully that means this book doesn't have those either! So yes, I'll include it for this giveaway. Good luck, Cheryl.

  86. I'm going to pick all new choices - one's I would have loved to enter if we had unlimited entries. Haha! This first choice will be going against my norm, but I was fascinated when I read the synopsis awhile back. And NO romance. What?! Yet, it is a reimagining of a classic and you know how I like those.

    1.) The Man He Never Was by James L. Rubart

  87. When I read the synopsis for Mason's next release, it actually made me heart-sick and longing for the main character's happily-ever-after. You know it's got to be a good book blurb if it's already prompting my empathy for characters whose story I barely know.

    #2) A Most Notable Heir by Susan Ann Mason
