Morgan Huneke ~ Unfortunately, I haven’t read 5 Homeschooled Author books this summer. Adulting takes away from reading time, and my friends like to distract me with books I can get from the library or cheap on Kindle. ;) But I did read two fantastic books by homeschooled authors this summer. Both are highly recommended.
Lady Dragon, Tela Du by Kendra E. Ardnek
Before You Meet Prince Charming by Sarah Mally
Kendra Ardnek ~ 1. Crannig Castle by Morgan Elizabeth Huneke. The last book of her Time Captives trilogy, I read it for betaing purposes, and it's not out yet ... but it's awesome. Tore out my heart.
2. Song of the Sword by Hope Ann. An allegorical retelling of Rapunzel focusing on Joy. It was amazing.
3. Twinpathy by C.B. Cook. A superhero novel about telepathic twins. There were some moments where the main character bugged me, but I loved the book nonetheless.
4. The Rose and the Baloon by Kirsten Fichter. A Beauty and the Beast story. I don't love it as much as I love her Cinderella retelling, but it was a lovely story that I do recommend.
If we want to round it off and make it an even five, I have been neck-deep in edits for Lady Dragon, Tela Du...
Rebekah Morris ~ My top 5 favorite HA books that I read this summer were pretty easy to choose since I really haven't had much time to read and only read 6 authors. The first two were my favorites while the last three all tie for the same place.
The Old River Road by Ivy Rose (Loved this book! It made me cry and that doesn't happen often!)
Money Making Mom by Crystal Paine (Yes, she was homeschooled.)
The Treasure Hunt by Kate Willis
Journey to Love by Amanda Tero
The Silent Blade by Jesseca Wheaton
And I feel that I should go ahead and mention the 6th HA book too.
Adventures and Adversities by Sarah Holman
Sarah Brown ~ The top 5 Homeschooled Authors books I read this summer are as follows (in no particular order): 1) Gift from the Storm by Rebekah Morris: This book was extremely unique in storyline, and, while not a masterpiece, I was very impressed with the author's ability to so vividly portray the main character's amnesia and distress. 2) The Master's Calling by Amber Schamel: If you want to taken back into Bible times and practically live out the experiences of the followers of Christ after His resurrection--so vividly told that you feel like you're there with them--then this is the book for you! 3) Ante Up by Chautona Havig: (I hope this counts as an HA book--Chautona is a homeschool mom, and this series is about a homeschooling family. This last book of the Aggie's Inheritance series--if you haven't read the first 4(?) books, do that before reading this one. Your faith will be challenged and strengthened! 4) Pajama School by Natalie Wickham: Wow! Want to be inspired to get out and use your talents for the Lord? Natalie's book will do that for you! 5) Past Forward, Volumes 1-3, by Chautona Havig: The best that Chautona has to offer, IMO!! I don't care as much for the later books in the series, though they're still good, but nothing can beat volumes 1-3--volume 1 is even available as an audiobook! Willow & Chad's story is... well, there's no way to even describe it--just read (or listen to) it!!!
