Book Directions

In June the informal reading challenge I am joining in with on Emilie Richards Reader Page is …. A book with a direction in the title. So I have been considering. In actual fact there are quite a few book titles with a direction word in it!

book cover

South of the Buttonwood Tree is perfect directions. You’d know exactly where to aim, well if you knew which Buttonwood tree! That said I am starting to listen to that now, so it won’t be of any use to me for the challenge next month.  Blue Bishop has a knack for finding lost things. While growing up in charming small-town Buttonwood, Alabama, she’s happened across lost wallets, jewelry, pets, her wandering neighbor, and sometimes, trouble. No one is more surprised than Blue, however, when she comes across an abandoned newborn baby in the woods, just south of a very special buttonwood tree.  I have only recently started to read Heather Webber books and I have really liked what I have read.

book cover Another great directions  book, In the Middle of Hickory Lane.  But this one I think publishes in July so too late for June.  Great cover and I will probably listen to this on audio as well.  Family, community, secrets and some magical realism. All elements I enjoy.

book coverWell you’d know where to head too with this title. I’ve never been to the East End except via books like this one. All about a below stairs cook and the mysteries she solves. It’s a series! I love the setting and the characters. Murder in the East End.

book cover Well I think this title gives some direction as well. Under the Southern Sky. Another one that I have read though. Kristy Woodson Harvey has written a story that just kept on giving. A story of family, loss, love, new hope. Wonderful to listen to, because the narrators brought the characters alive.

book coverSummer on the Island. Well the directions don’t tell me which island but its on the island.  This is the book I will most likely read for the challenge as I have it from Netgalley, by a accident actually but that’s okay.  As it happens the island is small and off the coast of Florida and its detailed as a summer of healing, friendship and love and a secret that could change everything!

  1. I had no idea Webber had two more books (well 1 and 1 upcoming). I will definitely be checking both out. I haven’t read any of these but they all look good.


  2. Great books Kathryn – for a fun challenge. Haven’t read any of these – will check them out. I’m still working on May’s challenge. You’ve given me my plan for my post! Thanks

  3. I’m not familiar with any of these books; thank you for the recommendations.  I did really like The Wedding Veil by Kristy Woodson Harvey; and I see that the early books in her Peachtree Bluff series would qualify for this challenge.  So I may read Slightly South of Simple and The Secret to Southern Charm.

  4. What a great challenge. I never really thought about it but you’re right many books with directions of some sort in the title.
