Best Creative Madness Mama Reads of 2011

Yes, there is about ten or so more days left… but I’ll cut it off here. This year I read 313 of my goal for 300 books this year. I might make 315 by years end! Then there is also a good half dozen or so in the DNF pile that I may or may not ever go back to. My understanding is that I read approximately 53,069 pages. Lots of children’s picture books, a few board books, some non fiction, and tons of Christian Historical Fiction. Earlier today I was asked for my favorite read of 2011. That was a hard decision to make, but after narrowing it down to about six or so, I finally chose… The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden, which if I’m not m istaken is her debut novel! I cannot wait for her next one coming in 2012 The Rose of Winslow. . .

Abigail Cushman may not know the difference between a bass and a trout, but how hard can it be to catch a fish? She’s a quick learner, and she’s certain her smarts can net her a win over Ross Springer, the handsome charmer she’s tried to forget since grief tore them apart.
