What I Read in September

What with settling in to our new home, plus a trip to Missouri, I didn’t fit in as much reading as I usually do this past month. But, as always, I did read a few books.

My star ratings are according to GoodReads definitions:

  1. Did not like it
  2. It was ok
  3. Liked it
  4. Really liked it
  5. It was amazing

Review Books

The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon Lady by Sharon J. Mondragon

My Rating

Cozy read for fall or winter. Check out my review.


Eden by Brennan S. McPherson

My Rating

“Biblical Fiction of the World’s First Family.” I enjoy Biblical fiction if it stays true to scripture and helps me understand the Bible better. This one, about Adam and Eve and their sons, did that.

Flood by Brenna S. McPherson

My Rating

The second book in The Fall of Man Series, about Noah and his family, was more of a stretch for me, but I still give it 4.5 stars.

The Longest Day by Terry Toler

My Rating

This book was so disappointing for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the first half, but sadly it went downhill from there. I think it was trying to be a mash-up of sci-fi and Biblical fiction, and while the sci-fi part was okay, the Biblical fiction part was weird to me.

Stealth Power by Vikki Kestell


Book 2 of Nanostealth, a Christian sci-fi series.


Unquestioned Answers by Jeff Myers


The subtitle is “Rethinking Ten Christian Cliches to Rediscover Biblical Truths.” I highly recommend this one, especially if you’ve ever found yourself (like I have) scratching your head over trite platitudes that often pop up in Christian circles.

Juvenile Fiction

Nate the Great Saves the King of Sweden by Marjorie Weinman Sharmot

My Rating

Super cute “detective” story for emerging readers.


The Case of the Red Rubber Ball by John R. Erickson

My Rating

This was the last of the audiobooks on our moving trip.

Grace Space by Robin Merrill

My Rating

If you’ve ever been involved in, or known someone involved in, a multi-level marketing program you’ll get a kick out of this story.
