LDS Fiction Reads

Recently, I've read a couple LDS fiction books. First I read our own Jolene Perry's The Next Door Boys. Which, by the way, is fantastic. I finished it in a few days.

Now, I'm making my way through the third book in the Hearts of the Children series by Dean Hughes. I read his WWII (first Thomas generation) books: The Children of Promise. None of them disappoint.

So, now I'm on a LDS fiction reading high, and I'd love for a few new recommendations! Please chime in!


  1. If you haven't already, I would read Annette Lyons' work (Band of Sisters is my favorite, and I think it won a Whitney recently) and Braden Bell's The Road Show was surprisingly good. I thought it was going to be cheesy, but it was actually very poignant.

    I've heard tons of good things about Melanie Jacobsen, and her books are on my Christmas wish list!

  2. Sarah Eden has a new book out called Seeking Persephone, Stephanie Black's new one, Rearview Window, Traci Abramson, Obsession, Melanie Jacobsen, Not My Type, Jennie Hansen's If I Should Die, Josi Kilpack's Pumpkin Roll, oh man, I could go on and on with so many great ones coming out in the last month. I love them all! :)

  3. Thanks Julie. I'm putting all of these on my list:)

  4. I am almost finished with Jolene Perry's, THE NEXT DOOR BOYS. I am loving it so far and I would have finished if not for my ten year old son's slumber party weekend and my two day migraine that followed.

    Thanks for the recommendations and for visiting my blog. I also stopped by your mother-daughter book club blog. I love it. I have been tinkering with the idea of starting a local mother-daughter book club. I am looking for ways to keep my teen and pre-teen girls close to home. They are all big readers and I read somewhere that a mom/daughter bookclub is good for helping girls deal with peer pressure in more positive ways.

  5. I guess I'll second my nominations? How funny. Um, I was going to say Traci Abrahamson. Good stuff. Stephanie Black=great thrillers. Josi Kilpack: excellent mysteries. Chick lit? Aubrey Mace's Spare Change. And Julie Wright's Cross My Heart. Or me, I guess. Funny historial? Sarah Eden. And I think Jolene did a great job with her book.
