Saturday Christian Fiction Carnival

I'm participating in Saturday Christian Fiction Carnival hosted by Amy.

This Saturday's Question is:

Why do you read and review Christian fiction? Do you exclusively read Christian fiction or do you also read general market books?

Guess it is a double question. Hmmm...well, I write Christian fiction, so it is good to see what else is being written. I also love the authors...they are such great people to work with. The publishers and publicists go out of their way to make sure I get great books to read and review.

No, I do not exclusively read Christian fiction. I am a big time fantasy reader. My favorite authors are J. K. Rowling, Anne McCaffrey, and Elizabeth Moon. Plus TONS more. I also love Jane Austen.

A big THANK YOU to those authors and publishers! And to you too, Mimi for taking the time to work with all the reviewers at FIRST and all of FIRST's offspring! :)

It is nice how amazing Christian fiction has become. Not that there wasn't good work before, but we are getting access to more and more great fiction.

Mimi - I love participating in your WildCard Tours - I've read some very good Christian books that I wouldn't have read otherwise!

My answers are here:

Have a great weekend!

Hi Mimi,

Boy going through all these sites and trying to find something sort of different to say on each one is trying, but fun...LOL

I love reading Jane Austen too!!

I love Anne McCaffrey, especially Dragonsong and Dragonsinger! Also the Harry Potter series but I haven't heard of Elizabeth Moon. What do you like about her books?

Hi Mimi! You are so awesome with everything you do on FIRST! You shouldn't read my answers to Amy's question. :( We have some differing opinions, but it's because of what my life was like when I was a teenager. Hopefully I don't offend too many people.
