MY CHRISTMAS READING LIST by Linda S. Glaz

I thought I’d give a shout out for some wonderful new books that have hit the market. After all, it’s time to make that Christmas wish list.

1-Fatal Reality by Jonathan Wakefield. If you are a fan of reality TV, you don’t want to miss having Fatal Reality on your list. Hate, love, dark secrets, narcissism, and a search for what God really means in our lives, all come together on the “island” where the characters must fight to stay alive. I’m not saying anymore, but if you have a reality show nut in your house, then this is the book to buy him or her this Christmas.
2-Mind Over Madi by Lynda Lee Schab. Have you ever suffered from jealously, feelings that you’re not quite as important to others as you’d like to be? Madi battles plenty of inner demons as she tries to build self-esteem. Will she discover who she really is in time to save her marriage? A wonderful read for the lady in your life.
3-Thyme for Love by Pamela S. Meyers. Anytime you put food in a book, I’m with ya. When April Love, chef extraordinaire, interviews for a job and discovers an old love will be her boss…well? What can a girl do? Before she can decide, there is a murder that might be blamed on her once-upon-a-time boyfriend. This is a game changer. This delightful mystery will keep you turning pages well into the night. Be sure it’s on your list.
4-Peril by Suzanne Hartmann. As the suspense novel takes Nascar turns, terrorism, and religion join the race. Add in a secret government organization, and you’ve got suspense enough to force yourself to race to the finish without once closing the covers. Get this novel and read at your own peril!
5-Savanna’s Gift by Camille Eide. A novella that releases Dec. 2nd. Sweet and full of wonderful holiday cheer. Savanna’s Gift will even lift the spirits of the likes of Scrooge, and at only one dollar during the month of December, he’d be happier yet.
6-Laramie on the Lam series by Deb Harper. For your middle readers. Wonderful fun-filled series. Less than one dollar a book.
7-Lost in Translation by Roger Bruner. Roger’s YA’s will reach into the readers’ hearts and pull at every emotion. A must read for your teens.
And don’t forget to pick up a couple by Max Anderson for the son/grandsons in your life. You won’t be sorry. There are so many to choose from, you’ll spend all day on Amazon!
There are a number of others that I know I’m forgetting, but just finished with these authors and their books are fresh in my mind.
My point is this: put books at the top of your Christmas list. For anyone. There’s no better gift than that of reading.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving all.

These look great; thanks for taking time to make this list for us, Linda.

An eReader is at the top of my list--actually, it's the only item on the list!

Happy Thanksgiving,
