Hello and welcome to the final day of Five Fall Favorites, hosted by Rebekah Morris! (Be sure and visit her site for more fun content and links to more posts!)
For those who are new to FFF, this is a week-long fall celebration of books we love from different genres! Each day, each participant will have a different theme and one of them is a Book Room with a free story so make sure you check every post! My theme for the day is…
Oh man, I miss my bike so bad! It’s been ages since I’ve gone biking! I have a pretty vintage style brown and cream bike that transported me back to olden times, smuggling babies in the Netherlands under the Nazis’ noses or trying to outrun my imaginary older brothers who were much better bikers than me 😊 My siblings and I have been resistance workers, cowgirls (and a cowboy!) or just normal people of all things XD
So, while you’re here for the bike trails, let’s fill the basket with my top 5 reads of 2021 (so far)!
1| Modern Warriors by Pete Hegseth
Yes, this book needs a little censoring for a handful of words but other than that, I can’t recommend this book enough! Best book I’ve read all year! (My review is here!) Seriously, I got this book on a whim and I don’t regret it at all! It’s literally like sitting down and talking with a veteran rather than reading a book. It sucks you in and makes you think. 10/10 recommendation!
2| The Colour Red by Katja Labonte
This book y’all… She’s revising it right now, but oh! If you have the opportunity to read this gem, do yourself a favor and do it ASAP! It has found-family, deal with anxiety and mental health in a way that actually makes sense and provides hope for those dealing with what feels like a never ending cycle of pain. It honors police, so you know I’m all about that! Just please read this book so I can fangirl with you XD
3| O The Fallen by Abigail K. Harris
Broke. My. Heart. Based off of two heart wrenching songs about our soldiers, this story ripped my heart out and ran it through a paper shredder… Highly recommend. (some mild romance)
4| Firestorm at Kookaburra Station by Robert Elmer
This is part of the Adventures Down Under Series and I loved it so much! I love how it teaches about not judging people by their looks and being willing to listen. The hot air balloon was a fun twist too XD
5| Chasing Lincoln’s Killer by James L. Swanson
In all honesty, this one will probably get bumped off pretty soon XD It’s the middle grade version of Manhunt, but not half as good in my opinion. You can see my reasons in this post so I don’t have to rehash it all here XD
Don’t forget to stop by the Literary Lodge for more Fall Favorites Fun!
