    4. I'm already thinking about the last quarter book search, lol. I'm going to make a new book list on Amazon for them, may be I'll label it "Kav Quarters" 😀

    5. I like it -- like quilting only with books. At least, I think there's a quilting term about quarters. Fat quarters? Pretty sure that's right.

  14. Minding the Light isn't Amish, so am assuming that doesn't count here, right? If so, please count it as my 3rd choice. Thanks!!

    1. It's listed under Amish on Amazon, so it should work. (I'm counting on it counting! 😬)

      Delete
    2. When I suggested the first book in this Quaker series Kav counted it.

      Delete
    3. Yes, I counted it. I think we think of it as Amish because of the author but there really isn't a Quaker genre so....Good luck, Diana.

  21. Amish seemed to be the easiest genre for me to accumulate an abundance of choices this time around. I've had the hard task of whittling it down to three. Albeit, a fun task. :) I loved my very first Irvin read and the first book from this series, so the third book from the Every Amish Season eries was a given.

    1.) Through the Autumn Air by Kelly Irvin

    1. A title I debated, but ultimately didn't choose since there were a number of earlier releases to choose from is SADIE by Sarah Price. Since you enjoy re-tellings like me I thought you might like to know. ;)

    2. Squeepppp --- a new Leslie Gould! I'm jazzed!!! And I loved Belle -- the first fairy tale retelling by Sarah Price. I have the second one, Ella and this one on hold at my library. Grinning an infatuated reader grin. Good luck, Terrill.

    3. Yes, Belle was sooo good! Definitely a favorite Amish book from last year. I haven't read Elle, yet, but it's one of my must read soons.
