  1. Two books that I would really like to read soon: “Monster” by Frank Peretti, and “The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser” by Hosanna Emily. I already own a copy of the former. My parents surprised me with it yesterday. As for “The Mystery of the Midnight Trespasser”, I don’t own a copy, yet, but it’s at the top of my to-read list on Goodreads.

    My second favourite book (after the Bible, which is what many of my blog posts are based on) is “Covenant Child”, by Terri Blackstock. In fact, if I could only re-read one book, that would be it. When I first read it three or four years ago, I just felt so deeply attached to the characters, like I was feeling everything right along with them.

  2. I cannot think of just one book that is my favorite (other than the Bible, of course!). I enjoy reading in several different genres. =)

    As non-fiction goes (mainly devotionals), I have LOVED reading books by Elizabeth George. Her “A Young Woman After God’s Own Heart”, “The Heart of a Woman Who Prays”, and “Loving God With All Your Mind” are all fantastic reads. They have impacted my spiritual walk so much!!

    I also enjoy historical fiction a great deal. I don’t have one favorite, but I recently finished “AD 33” which was really good! It was both a fantastic read and had a great Biblical message. There are many others that I enjoy..the Crown and Covenant Series…anything by Janette Oke or Lois Walfrid Johnsond..and others. =)

    I’m so tickled that you are wanting to read my novella, Jordy! =)

    Thanks for the fun discussion post. =)

    1. Hi Hosanna!

      I haven’t read any of the titles you mentioned above, but as far as I can tell, the books that you read and enjoy are very worthwhile! Your positive reviews on Goodreads often make me want to go and buy the book!

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. The Bible is my favourite book but other than that I have SO many favourite books! I love to read and I love so many books and genres.

    I love ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’ mostly because those books are the ones that got me started reading. They are really cool and written in a very cool way. They are creative and very unique. I would love to read them again.

    I tend to like books that are a bit off; a bit weird. I love ‘House’ by Franck Peretti and Ted Dekker and ‘Chayatocha’ by Shane Johnson. They are both supernatural thrillers by Christian authors and I would recommend them both.

    I’m also a huge sucker from romances and I love Melanie Dickerson and her series of virtuous romances. I can’t remember the title of the series but the first is ‘The Healer’s Apprentice’ I believe. They are really good and she is a great author. I want to read more of her books soon!

    Those are some of my favourite books; the ones I’m most likely to rant about ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. I think it’s pretty cool that you can name the book/series that really got you into reading. Not everyone can do that. I’ve never read ‘A Series of Unfortunate Events’, but if ever I got the chance, I would readily accept it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Frank Peretti is a great author for those who like stories that are just a bit off. He’s very good at making the unrealistic feel believable. I think you would enjoy his novel, ‘Monster’. ๐Ÿ™‚
