My Bookshelf: A Song Unheard by Roseanna M. White

If betraying her heart means saving countless lives, will she find the courage?
Willa Forsythe is both a violin prodigy and top-notch thief, which makes her the perfect choice for a critical task at the outset of World War I—to secure a crucial cypher key from a famous violinist currently in Wales.
Lukas De Wilde has enjoyed the life of fame he’s won—until now, when being recognized nearly gets him killed. Everyone wants the key to his father’s work as a cryptologist. And Lukas fears that his mother and sister, who have vanished in the wake of the German invasion of Belgium, will pay the price. The only distraction he finds from his worry is in meeting the intriguing and talented Willa Forsythe.
But danger presses in from every side, and Willa knows what Lukas doesn’t—that she must betray him and find that key, or her own family could pay the same price his surely has.

Must-Have February Releases

I really cannot believe it’s already February! I know that I say that every month, but really, this month went by so very quickly! I cannot believe how quickly it has flown by, especially since the school months tend to be a little bit slower for me. Either way, I am happy about it, because that means there are more books to read, and I’m even closer to summer! February brings with it Valentine’s Day as well, so here is a great list of things to ask for from your sweetheart!

Must-Have January Releases

As crazy as it sounds, the year is almost over, and 2018 brings with it another long list of fantastic books I will hopefully get the chance to read. Even though I unfortunately didn't get to read all that much this past year, I am hoping to change that next year, especially since there are so many great things to read! Here is just a little taste, just a month’s worth, of the amazing novels that will be coming out next year! Hopefully you'll find something new to read as well!

Must-Have December Releases

This year has completely flown by, and now here it is, already almost December! I cannot believe it, but I will say I am super excited to finally be on Christmas break. However, there is always such a small number of books that release in December and that makes me so sad. But, these three novels are all bound to be fantastic, so at least there’s that. And the Christmas season is just the best! Maybe these books would make some of the most perfect gifts.

My Bookshelf: A Note Yet Unsung by Tamara Alexander

A master violinist trained in Vienna, Rebekah Carrington manages to wheedle her way into an audition with the Maestro at the newly-formed Nashville Philharmonic. But women are “far too fragile and frail” for the rigors of an orchestra, and Rebekah’s hopes are swiftly dashed. Because the conductor—determined to leave his mark on the world of classical music—bows to public opinion. To make matters worse, Adelicia Acklen Cheatham, mistress of Belmont Mansion and Rebekah’s new employer, agrees with him.
Nationally-acclaimed conductor Nathaniel Tate Whitcomb is Nashville’s new orchestra leader. And despite a reluctant muse—and a strange buzzing and recurring pain in his head—he must finish composing his symphony before the grand opening of the city’s new opera hall. But far more pressing, he must finish it for the one who first inspired his love of music—his father, who is dying. But Tate’s aliment worsens. He knows Rebekah can help him finish his symphony. But how do you win back a woman’s trust when you’ve robbed her of her dream?

My Bookshelf: High as the Heavens by Kate Breslin

A British nurse in WWI German-occupied Brussels, Evelyn Marche spends her days at the hospital and her nights working at a cafĂ©…or so it seems. Eve’s most carefully guarded secret is that she also spends her nights carrying out dangerous missions as a spy for a Belgian resistance group.
When a plane crashes as she’s en route to a rendezvous, Eve is the first to reach the downed plane and is shocked to recognize the badly injured pilot as British RFC Captain Simon Forrester. She risks her life to conceal him from the Germans, but as the secrets between them grow and the danger mounts, can they still hope to make it out of Belgium alive?

Must-Have November Releases

Fall is definitely here! Already, the semester is halfway over, and so is the college football season, and I can’t believe how quickly the time is flying by. I am glad, however, because two more of my favorite things are coming up: Thanksgiving and Christmas. I absolutely love the season of Christmas—I’ve honestly already started listening to a little bit of Christmas music—and there are so many good books that are releasing in the next two months!
