I love creating stories that have heart and depth. But, before I was a writer, I was foremost a reader.
I have always been a vivacious reader. I have literally read hundreds of books throughout my lifetime. But there are only a handful that I would put on my favorites list.
5. How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck
I thoroughly enjoyed all of the books in the Royal Wedding series but this one was, by far, my favorite. I fell in love with each of the characters and loved seeing how they evolved. The redemptive nature of this book had me tearing up. It’s definitely a great read!
Oh my, The Swan House is one of those books that you will never forget. I’m not going to lie, the story has a sad element woven into the plot. I am usually not a fan of books that have sad elements in them, but Ms. Musser’s writing is so engaging and rich, I could not put The Swan House down. The story also convicted me on a personal level and had me thinking how comfortable I live when there are so many people living homeless and hungry. It gave me a desire to want to stretch my hand out to help and minister to those less fortunate in my community. If you have a chance to read this book, please do.
3. The Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett
I love classic literature. And this story is one of my favorites. There are so many quotable lines in this book and I love every one of them!
2. The Lady and the Lionheart by Joanne Bischof
This book had me from the first chapter. The writing washes over your soul, slowly, yet engulfing. The characters are real and tangible. The plot is convicting and soothing. Please, if you have not read this book, do so as soon as possible. It’s about a circus. And lions. And a Lionheart. So please, once again, read this book.
This story is all about redemption. Every time I read this book, I am reminded of how much God loves us. I honestly don’t know what else to say about this book because it is that good. It’s just one of those you have to read.
I would love to hear from my readers! What is your favorite book(s)?
