Another week has come and gone at ReadLove ! Here’s what you may have missed:
Christian Chapters: The Imposter by Suzanne Woods Fisher
5 of 5 Hearts. An Inspiring and Lyrical Look at an Amish Community Facing Modern Issues.
The Imposter is impossible to categorize. Calling it a romance ignores the mystery. Calling it a mystery doesn’t fit either. There are many elements to this tale — romance, mystery, drama, humor, and faith to name a few. Just as our lives can’t be summed up with one label, neither can this story, and that’s what makes it so appealing. The Imposter incorporates everything readers of Amish fiction love about the genre, while steeping its setting and characters in modern realism, to a richly satisfying result.
Kids Corner: Nightborn by Lou Anders
5 of 5 Hearts. A Smash-Hit Fantasy Sequel Bursting With Action, Adventure, Worldbuilding, Humor, Gaming, and (Most of All) Heart.
The perfect fantasy series follow-up, Nightborn pushes all the right buttons while breaking the walls of its own world wide open! As the maps of the Thrones & Bones world expand, interest in the series is guaranteed to grow. If you’re hunting for a quality middle-grade adventure series, your search ends here!
Kids Corner – American Girl: Kit Story Collection by Valerie Tripp
4.5 of 5 Hearts. An Illuminating, Kid’s-Eye Look at the Great Depression.
Kit Kittredge is everything you want from a heroine — intelligent, spunky, indomitable. As her story progresses, it’s easy to root for her and share her happiness, as well as her anxieties when hard times threaten. And those truly depressing times are rendered vividly by author Tripp, who never forgets that she is teaching as well as entertaining.
That’s everything that happened on ReadLove this week. See you next week!
Until then, I’d love it if you shared a bit about your week in the comments!
