Reader's Choice - Retro Reads

GIVEAWAY


The best part of summer is the hot new releases publishers are sending our way! SQUEEEP!!! I'm so excited! And I know you are too so here's a chance for you to win a book from your summer wishlist.

Here's how it works: You recommend Christian Fiction with release dates in July, Auguat or September 2018 (up to three a day) and you have a chance to win one of your recommendations! BUT it's a little more complicated than that so be sure to read ALL the details before entering.

PLEASE NOTE: email entries are not eligible this week. :-(



IT'S RETRO READ DAY!

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


Retro Read

Any Christian Fiction novel published in 2017 or earlier. Here's your chance to catch the one that got away! Just make sure it's still in print or email format if you're okay with that.  

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
2017 or earlier
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
(to hard to keep track of 
due to # of responses)
IMPORTANT: entrants must submit their own selections
(not piggback on somebody else's login) IMPORTANT
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
Sunday June 17 2018

  29. Doing a WWII theme, after pulling my list of favorite authors and then doing a search of them on ChristianBooks. So, I have scattered books of most of Sarah Sundin's series (her books are so wonderfully researched and are so inspirational) but missing these in the Nightingale series.

    On Distant Shores, Sarah Sundin, 2013

    We all have so greatly enjoyed all the education and fellowship this week!

  31. Daisies Are Forever, Liz Tolsma, 2014.

    I also note her next book in the Music of Hope series, entitled When The Heart Sings, will be out from Gilead in October. The first book in that series, Melody of the Soul, was excellent and had a different focus. Thanks!!

    1. I love Sarah Sundin too and I think I'm missing a few from her earlier series. Thanks for reminding me!

      Liz Tolsma actually has a Love Inspired book out now - Amish!-- It will be interesting to see how that compares to her WWII novels. I just love her. Good luck, CC.
