    I think I’d like to take a chance on a new author and choose Slender Reeds if I win. I ❤ biblical fiction.
    2. Conspiracy of Silence would be my second choice. Kendig is amazing!

    Lucifer's Harvest is part of a series that looks interesting, but I haven't begun reading.

    1. Hey, Amanda. I really had fun putting this list together. I don’t just copy and paste everything from Amazon; although, I use that site for the buy now links because is is so popular. I look into each book, the authors, their blogs and past book/book reviews to try and get really great reads. Another blogger recommended Lucifer’s Harvest to me, though I’ve yet to read it. Let me know how it is, if you read it. 🙂
