Book Reviews

I've written well over 800 book reviews—so many that sometimes I have difficulty remembering if I've reviewed a particular book! So here's where you (and I) can find a comprehensive list—eventually. This is a work in progress!

Clicking on the link will take you to the review. If the book is part of a series, I've noted that. The list is alphabetical by author. I rank books using a 5-star system, and books that I highly recommend (4-1/2 and 5-star books) are denoted with a . (Keep in mind that I would recommend most of the books that I review, but those noted with a are the best of the best.) Also, nearly all of the fiction books I read are inspirational/Christian fiction, so rather than saying a book is "historical inspirational fiction," I'll just say "historical fiction." Any books with questionable content are clearly noted in the review.

    1. I don't see Elizabeth Musser on your list. I just discovered her this year when someone posted one of her devotionals on FB. You can learn about her and her novels here: If you decide to try one of her novels (I started with the Swan House), I hope you enjoy her as much as I do.

      1. Thanks for the recommendation, Kathy! My list is woefully out of date, but I haven't read any of Musser's books, so she wouldn't appear on it even if it were up to date :-) I do have one of her novels on my Kindle--I'll have to check it out!
