10 Incredible Books That Instantly Captured My Attention

I rarely read a book twice, but the books on this list were very tempting. Whether it be the story, descriptive scenery or even the food, there was something about each book here that I’ll never forget. If you want to enjoy some quality reading this season, you’ve come to the right place.

1 Kathryn Cushman’s Fading Starlight

The breathtaking West Coast scenery seemed like the perfect getaway! You’ll be dreaming about your own quintessential home after reading Cushman’s lush descriptions. The story itself is wonderfully wholesome.

2 Melissa Tagg’s  Made To Last

This novel introduced me to Tagg’s unique writing style and love of “Gilmore Girls”. I was a big “Gilmore Girls” fan back in the day, and I stuck around for her future books that described a picturesque Maple Valley with such lovable residents.

3 Jessica Dotta – Born Of Persuasion

Escape to the ultimate fantasy world in this elegant romance with a hint of the thriller genre.  It’s set in historic England, however, it puts a deliciously dark twist on classics.

4 T.I. Lowe’s Sea Glass Castle

Filled with romance, friendship, realism and the serene East coast. It has all the elements of a well-rounded story. The right ending to a trilogy.

5 Carla Laureano’s The Saturday Night Supper Club

The love story was sweet, but the dishes were even sweeter. I found myself anxious to get to the next chapter just to read about the new meals/desserts the main character was ready to serve.

6 Sarah Jakes – Lost And Found

Before I read this book, I knew about Bishop T.D. Jakes, but I didn’t know anything about his children. It was eye-opening to read such a raw and honest account from one of his daughters. You have to applaud her for keeping it real!

7 Dee Henderson’s Taken

Besides the engrossing tale, I found the description of the meal at the very beginning absolutely delicious. Henderson is very good at describing the smallest things.

8 Diann Mills’ Burden of Proof

There wasn’t a dull moment in this gripping mystery novel. It’s the kind of story you pick up but don’t want to put it down until the very last page. This one introduced me to Mills’ work and piqued my interest in future books.

9 Courtney Walsh’s Just Let Go

This story was a good mixture of Hallmark Channel and real life. It wasn’t hard to relate to the characters while cheering for a possible happy ending.

10 Dagny Griffin’s  Shine

Even though this is strictly a picture book, the fact that the main character gives everyone such a great example of a righteous person… is definitely worth a second look.

Happy Reading!
