It's Monday! What are you reading?

I'm reading a book called The Manual by Sherryle Kiser Jackson. You can see the title on my Shelfari widget to the right. It's urban Christian fiction, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I'll write a review for this one next week.

This makes only the second time I've read a book of this genre. I've read mainstream urban fiction, but for whatever reason I haven't spent much time on the inspirational side. So I need to branch out. Do you read urban Christian fiction? If so, who are your favorite authors? List them in the comments section so we can expand our horizons. If you have specific urban Christian romance recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

And I've got some Amazon freebies to mention today (not urban fiction, sorry). Both of these are currently free for the Kindle.

No Place for a Lady by Maggie Brendan
Love Comes Softly by Janette Oke (which might be the first bestselling inspy romance)

There's also a great ebook sale going on over at Multnomah. I heart cheap books, don't you? The sale runs through June 30 (thanks to blogging friend Michelle Sutton for this heads up):

Want to know what everyone else is reading this Monday? Head over to see Sheila at Book Journey.


  1. I'm always interested in finding good inspirational fiction. Most of the authors I know write for the Love Inspired line. I'll be adding you to my reading list.

    My reads are here

  2. Joy, I have not read urban Christian fiction that I can think of. The book, The Manuel sounds interesting.

    Have a super week Joy!

  3. This is one of the first blogs dedicated to reading I have stumbled upon! I LOVE to read, but I have not read any christian fiction. Right now I am reading The Help.
    I am a new follower, I found you thru Tueday tag Along!

  4. Just hopping through via the Tuesday Tagalong. Come check out my blog if you get a chance, there are some great ecofriendly coupons, freebies, and giveaways! I'd love it if you would follow along on my journey to a greener life!

  7. My TBR is huge! I'm in the beginnings of "61 Hours" by Lee Child. Not bad, so far.

    Have a great day!

  8. Your blog is just too cute! Thank you for stopping by my blog today!

  9. I am reading Caleb and Kate by Cindy Matinusen-Coloma and it's FABULOUS! It's a modern day Romeo and Juliet scenario where the girl is a rich white chick at a private high school and the guy is a Native Hawaiian and it's very believably done.

  10. Oooh, Caleb and Kate sounds like it would be something I'd enjoy. Thanks.

  11. Thanks for mentioning The Manual, I'm going to have to check it out.

    I'm a huge fan of Urban Christian fiction, and always looking for authors in that category. I just reviewed "Sins of the Mother" by Victoria Christopher Murray.

    I also love reading ReShonda Tate Billingsley, Tiffany L. Warren, and Jacquelin Thomas.



I love comments more than Starbucks! Thanks for leaving one!
