Are You In? Christian Fiction Book Club, February 25th

Renee Ann Smith —  February 22, 2011 — 24 Comments

Hey, guys, great news! If you’ve read a Christian fiction book this month, you can write about it, link up or share your review here, and be eligible to win a prize! If you’re not a blogger, you can email your thoughts on your book to me (reneeasmith61 [at] yahoo [dot] com) or you can share your thoughts in the comments section of my review when I post it.

I’ll post my review on Friday, February 25th, and we will have the weekend to link up and read each others’ reviews.

This is a great way to fellowship by sharing our values, hearts, and special favorites with each other. So join us. It’ll be fun! I promise!

If you’re new at this and don’t know what to write, consider these questions . . .

  • Which character did you relate to and why?
  • Which character did you love and want for a friend?
  • How did the author’s story touch your heart or affect your view of some aspect of life?
  • Could you relate to the situation in your book because of something in your own life?
  • Did the dialogue or situations in the book make you smile?
  • Would you read another book by this author?

For further details about books suggestions and how this all works, see my original book club post at this link.

I teach literature in a Christian high school by day and write inspirational fiction by night. I love to share heart-touching quotes and stories here on my blog. So glad you stopped by!

  1. I love this idea. I am currently waiting on a book to arrive in the post so I won’t be able to participate on Friday, but will you be doing this each month? I would love to participate then. I love Christian fiction, but do not have much access to it. This seems like a great way to learn about what books to search out as well as an opportunity to meet others.

    • One of several blogs hosts the Christian fiction book club each month. I decided to host an open choice for my month because I haven’t always wanted to buy the books chosen each month. We’ll see what the ladies in charge decide to do for next month. But I may host a book review linky next month just for fun–even if it’s not the “official” book club meeting!

  2. What a great idea. I did not read any fiction this month, stink!

  3. Hey Renee, can you pass the torch to someone for next month? Choose someone who’s interested from one of the people who link up this month. You might have to guide them to put up an introductory post. Also, as this month’s host, can you run a poll on which book to do for March?

    Here are my suggestions:
    1. A Cowboy’s Touch by Denise Hunter (on Netgalley)
    2. The Preacher’s Bride by Jody Hedlund
    3. Paradise Valley by Dale Cramer
    4. While We’re Far Apart by Lynn Austin

    5. The Girl in the Gatehouse by Julie Klassen

  4. How awesome! Will you be doing any Christian YA? I’ve had a lot of people tell me to send my stuff to Christian publishers because I don’t talk about sex or curse and tend to have spiritual themes sometimes, but I think I do too much fantasy….any opinions?

  5. I’ve read a few this month and the reviews are on my blog!
    A Time To Heal – Quilts of Lancaster County Series #2 by Barbara Cameron
    Amish Hearts by Beth Wiseman, Kathleen Fuller and Kelly Long
    Rugged and Relentless, Husbands for Hire Series #1 by Kelly Hake
    Digitalis by Ronie Kendig
    Grace by Shelley Shepard Gray
    One Imperfect Christmas by Myra Johnson
    A Rose Revealed by Gayle Roper
    Unwilling Warrior by Andrea Boeshaar
    Love Finds You In Hershey Pennsylvania by Cerella D. Sechrist
    When Sparrows Fall by Meg Moseley
    A Place of Abundance by Julie Bell
    I hope this is what you wanted? I’m 3/4 of the way through Kathi Macais People of The Book and will be posting that soon! http://musingsbymaureen.blogspot.com/

    • Maureen, on Friday I’ll provide a linky list at the end of my own book review. You just link one of the reviews from your blog to the list! You can do the review that’s up now or write a new one.

  6. This looks like so much fun! I wish I could participate, but have not had any time to pick up fiction books this month since I’m in my final semester for grad school. I was considering maybe reading a short one over the next few days, but the papers that are due next week would suffer if I did that.

    I hope you do this again over the next few months, and would love to participate in the next one! :)

    • If folks respond well on Friday, I’ll definitely do this again. I like leaving the book choice open because that way no one has to buy a book they’re not interested in. And life’s too short for me to spend time and money on something I’m not going to like! . . . Praying for all your papers and assignments. Blessings, Helene!

  7. i am in “)
    and especially because we weren’t restricted to a particular title –
    i’m not a fiction reader, but this freedom encouraged me to choose something FuN for a reading interlude in a crazy schedule allowing me to participate at my own pace ~
    it will be more interesting to discover new reading opps …
    thx Renee!

  8. Aw man! Is it that time already? I’ve been reading. I promise…but I’m far from finishing. :(

  9. Hi Renee Ann,
    It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to be graced with your wonderful blog posts! Just stopping in to say HI and as much as I want to join in on the reading fun, I’m struggling with keeping up with everything else. As stated in my most recent blog post, I am currently reading a book and trying to find time to finish it :) Have fun and thanks for your continued link ups to NOBH :) God bless!
