First I want to say that I am honored to be the new Wednesday fox. My first book comes out November 4th, Love Overcomes is a Contemporary Christian romance. My second book is going through the first round of edits.
This week we are all blogging about our top 10 books or authors. I saw something like this going around Facebook awhile back and I am sure that I did it but I honestly do not remember the answer since then I was told not to think about it. When you give something thought you come up with different answers from the ones you rattle off the top of your head.
Here are my top ten they are not in any particular order though.
Jane Austen the books she came up with. The fact that she gave herself and her sister happy endings in her books. I love looking into how life was back then. How they lived. The fact that I get to have Mr. Darcy fall for me every time I read Pride and Prejudice certainly helps.
The Chronicles of Narnia. My favorite book in the entire series is The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. It was the first one that I read. It introduced me to Narnia. I fell in love with this magical world.
The Hobbit I remember reading this in school. I fell in love with it. This little hobbit that nobody thinks can do anything goes on a wonderful and fantastic journey.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas this book is just plain fun. Plus his heart grows at the end of the book when he realizes that Christmas is not about the gifts or the food. Without those things you can still have a special and merry Christmas. Just ask Who-ville.
The Little House on the Prairie series this series is what made me fall in love with reading, it was what I read over and over. To this day I still find myself picking up books in this series and reading it. I even had the Little House cookbook. That is how much I loved these books. Now, my daughter enjoys them.
I admit that I love the Veggie Tales books. My kids enjoy them and they have grown on me.
I adore the writing of Wendy Knight. She creates worlds that are so magnificent and incredible. I love reading her books. She describes everything in such a manner that you can really see everything the way she sees it.
Sacajawea by Anna L Waldo this book was/is incredible. I got lost in it the summer after 5th grade. I could still be found in the tree that I loved to climb but I had this book with me or in my room at night staying up way past bedtime because I wanted to know what was going to happen to her next. It was a wonderful tale. One that I hope to share with my children.
The Outsiders. I know this book is not for everyone, my daughter did not care for it when she read it for school. I remember thinking that while some things in society changed many other things had not. You could still be born on the wrong side of town and looked down on by classmates because of that. This story pulled me in. Then it annoyed my brother because I started calling him Soda Pop.
The Bible. I did not read the Bible as child, I had children stories that were based off of the Bible. I have read it through twice now and I find something new each time. I love sharing the stories with my children. I love how it makes them curious. I love how I can find comfort, true comfort in it.
So those are my top ten authors/books. What are yours and why? I’d love to hear from you.
Thank you for stopping by today
