The links to my reviews are posted under each book cover.  Thanks for taking a peek, and I pray that you all have a very Happy New Year!

  3. I have read 5 of these books and loved them a lot! And three of them are on my TBR!

    1. Hi there, Abbi! Thank you for visiting! :)

  4. I have only read 3 of your top ten, 'Promise me This', 'Love's Reckoning' and 'The Help.' I loved all of them!

    It was really hard to decide which fiction books to pick for my top 5, I wanted to include Love's Reckoning.(Such a beautiful story)

    Some of your others are on my TBR pile, hope to get to them in the new year!

    Happy New Year Michelle! :)
