Summer Book Haul!

Displaying Blog Party Header.png

Hello y’all! I’ve been wanting to do a fun little book haul post, and when Victoria Lynn invited me to her amazing party– it totally fit the deal! Read her post for the lovely details!

My subject for today’s post, to join the part, is my summer reading book haul! These are the summer reading books I have bought, found (by found, I mean was given by my Mom when we went through storage), or books I got as gifts and just got around to reading. A lot of these are also ‘to be read’, but since I just got them and all, here they are. πŸ™‚




Love Comes Softly series by Janette Oke. Books 1, 2, 6, 8. My Granny loved Oke, and I’m excited to read this series.


The A.D. Chronicles, by Bodie and Brock Thoene. Books 1, 3, 4, 5, 6. My Mom had a bunch of Thoene books in storage, so I was happy to find them!


The Zion Chronicles, by Bodie Thoene. Books 2, 3, 4, 5.


Β  The Trellis and the Seed, by Jan Karon. Elsie Dinsmore, by Martha Finley. Superman Unchained comic. OK: I think I’ve read this Elsie Disnmore book before (and have a hardback copy) but this copy isn’t packed up so… πŸ˜‰ And a DC comic book is a fast way to up my 100 book reading goal this year LOL.


OK, I bought these 4 books at a huge flea market in NC while on vacation. I was soo excited to get them! First off, I love Kipling- but this copy is pretty old. It doesn’t even have a year copyright in it- but someone signed it, and that signed date is 1938. So it is at least that old, y’all! Before WWII! *freaks*

The Stories of Sherlock Holmes is SUPER old, doesn’t have a copyright date, and is very delicate.

Bluebird and The Sparrow, by Janette Oke.

Little Men, by Lousia May Alcott.



Please note that I own every single one of these books except the two ebooks I read in exchange for a review/won. I just don’t have photos of them because they’re packed away, since we’re moving. So. ;(




Letter of Love, by Amanda Tero. Ebook copy.



Spinner of Secrets, by Annie Lousie Twitchell. Ebook copy. Read review here.


Tortured For Christ, by Richard Wurmbran.

Β 17333533

Outlaw, by Ted Dekker.


The Unholy Deception, by L.A. Marzulli.


Henry Huggins, by Beverly Cleary.

Image result for winter is not forever book

Winter Is Not Forever, by Janette Oke. (Excuse the weird photo above, the cover on Goodreads would not load for some reason… hm)


Β Of the O’Malley series, this summer I read ‘Guardian’ and am currently reading ‘Truthseeker’. Can I just freak out about this series, y’all? because it’s soo sweet. Other than a lot of typos in the print and all, the story is great!


Victory On The Walls, by Frieda Clark Hyman.

The River Between Us, by Richard Peck.

The Warrior, by Francine Rivers.

The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-ExupΓ©ry. I actually read Little Prince twice, so… it’s a favorite. πŸ˜‰



Β The Long Way Home, by Andrew Klavan.

Seek, by (yours truly) Angela R. Watts. I’m also asking for beta readers for Seek (Sept. 9th- January 2018) so if you want to sign up, here’s the link!





Β Mayan Calendars, by Geoff Stray

Cannabis For Lyme Disease and related conditions, by Shelley M. White. Read review here.



And that would conclude my summer book haul. πŸ™‚

  1. You found some great books! The Love Comes Softly series and and the Thoene books are amazing. I haven’t read the Zion Chronicles books yet, but I read half of the Zion Covenant series, which are great.



  2. That’s a lot of books, Angela! πŸ™‚ It’s always so much fun when you get a lot of books at once. Then, unless it’s a series, you have to decide just what to read first. πŸ™‚ I’ve read some of that list, but not all.

  3. Awesome post, Angela!! Somebody has been burning up the books!!

    I’ve read several of the Dee Henderson books and Victory on the Wall. Victory on the Wall is AMAZING – pretty grisly in a spot or two – but the rest of it W.O.W.

  4. It looks like you’ve collected some amazing books this summer! I went to a book fair a couple of weeks ago and really found some good stuff… I was a little embarrassed by how much I brought home, but that’s beside the point. I did get to grab some Peter and Catherine Marshall books, Corrie ten Boom books, and a some various other reads I can’t wait to dive into, like Chronicles of Avonlea!

  6. I’ve attempted to read the Love Comes Softly series, but it was just way too slow for me…. I like Janette Oke’s Canadian West better anyway. I also like Seasons of the Heart. πŸ™‚
    All of these books sound cool! πŸ™‚

  7. Book hauls are so fun! Except then there’s the issue of finding bookshelf space… XD

    I’m so excited to see Outlaw on your list! Ted Dekker is amazing. And I’ve met very few people online who have read Andrew Klavan, so that’s awesome!

    I also am due for a reread of the O’Malley series one of these days. Great post! πŸ™‚

    • Oh gosh, yes! I have one bookshelf and it’s crowded… but since we’re packing, I have to box a lot of my books up, still. :/ πŸ™‚
      DEKKER IS ONE OF MY INSPIRATIONS! πŸ˜€ And Klavan caught my attention with ‘If We Survive’ it was soo good.
      Thanks, Tracey!!
