Book Reviews | 10 Favorites

Sharing a list of 10 books that have stuck with me over the years and are worth reading again (and again).

1. The Bible - read it all the way through, it will change your life.
2. The Hiding Place - never forget that there's no pit so deep that God is not deeper still.
3. Redeeming Love - a beautiful story of love and forgiveness.
4. The Giving Tree - yes, it's a picture story will leave you pondering what makes you truly happy.
5. Little House on the Prairie - read the entire series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
6. Fahrenheit 451 - how could anyone burn books!
7. To Kill A Mockingbird – if you’re only going to write one novel, it might as well be a Pulitzer Prize Winner, right?
8. Alas, Babylon – no matter how many years go by, this novel is still relevant.
9. Watership Down – amazing what we can learn from the rabbits in this story.
10. Gone With The Wind – you can think about reading this one tomorrow.

Which books would make your list of 10 favorites? Please share in the comments.


  1. Interesting list. I've not read 2-5, but have the others. My Ladies Coffee Hour Bible Study group starts up again next week via Zoom & we are studying 1 John, which for me is always the way to study the Bible; with guidance & like minded folks :)

  2. I've read The Bible, it did take me a couple of years. I also loved Gone with the wind and all the little house on the prairie series.

  3. I've read the Bible all the way through once, and many, many portions many, many times. I've also read #4, #5 (the whole series was read aloud to Sarah,), #7 and #10. I'd have to think hard to make an all-time top 10 list. Working on the one for 2020 for now.

  4. I read the Bible in 90 days and that did give me a whole new perspective on how the Old and New Testaments relate. Can you believe I have never read any of the others, although To Kill A Mockingbird is mocking me, as it keeps coming to my attention again and again. I have seen Gone With The Wind too many times to count, but never read the book. I have read the sequel - but if there had been a movie, I'd have seen it first. ;-)

  5. That's a great list, and an intriguing exercise. I'd have to include a Jane Austen in mine. As for children's books, I'd add The Veleveteen Rabbit :).

  6. I read To Kill a Mockingbird and Gone With the Wind as a teenager. A friend and I had tickets to see the new West End production of TKAMB in June - postponed until next June ... hopefully.

    I read Redeeming Love a few years ago and thought it was a slow start, but then found that I couldn't put it down. :)


Thanks so much for your comment - it's like a ray of sunshine in my day!
