Back in the Saddle with Some Hot Summer Reads

Back in the Saddle with Some Hot Summer Reads

Carol Award nominee list makes for great summer read must-haves!

It's been a little quiet around here, eh? That's what happens when I go tromping around the world. But here I am, readerly friends, in all my freakish glory. Back to the ol' routine of 3 posts a week, and to kick it off, here is a fantastic list for you to stock up on some summer reads.

Each year the American Christian Fiction Writers association hosts a contest to award great writing in Christian fiction. The nominations just came out this weekend, and whoa baby, there are some stelar reads on the list. If you're in need of a new book to toss into your beach bag, I suggest you pick up one of these.
