My Favorite Books

April 21, 2013

I’ve never considered myself to be an all-out bookworm, but I do love to read. There’s something absolutely wonderful about nestling down to read in a comfy chair with a blankie and a cuppa or finding a quiet spot outside to read. As summer break rapidly approaches for many of us, there will be more time to read books for pleasure, so I thought I’d make a list of a few of my favorites.

It can be hard to find well-written, quality books. There sure is a lot to sift through! Several times I’ve started a new “Christian” novel, only to be frustrated by the flakiness and lack of depth.

These books are ones that I’ve read and re-read over the years – ones that will always be numbered among my favorites. I am always on the lookout for good books, so I’d love to hear about books that you enjoy! And, as an idea for my fellow blogging friends, it would be fun to see a list of your favorite books on your lovely blogs. Hint, hint. ;)

So without further commentary, here is my book list:

*These last books are some of my favorites among classic literature. I love many of the classics, but since you are probably familiar with them, I won’t list them here. :)

I also love the Daughters of the Faith Series, written by Wendy Lawton. I haven’t read them all, but you can find out more about them here.

Almost Home (our favorite!), Courage to Run, Ransom’s MarkThe Tinker’s Daughter, Freedom’s Pen, Shadow of His Hand, Indian Paintbrush and The Captive Princess.

    Oh my! So many of my favorites on your list! :) I just started ‘Till We Have Faces’ a couple weeks ago – I saw it sitting on a library shelf and decided to read it because (you won’t believe this) I’d never heard of this book before! *Blush* :)

    Have you read the “Scarlet Pimpernel” series by Baroness Orczy? They’re brilliant! One of my favourites :D Also, the Jeeves and Wooster books by P.G. Wodehouse are quite hilarious – especially “Jeeves in the Morning”. Really is top hole.

      Oh my, 93Luthien! You like Jeeves and Wooster as well? I thought my family and I were the only people who appreciated such lovely British writing! :D

      I have not read those series. I’ll have to check them out! Thanks for the recommendation.
      Ha! Love the word “brilliant”….I’ve been trying to use it more often. :p
