Renard Moreau said...

[ Smiles ] Wow, that is a whole lot of reading, Becky!

Vasilly said...

Nice list! I've never read Inkheart, but own a copy of it. I think I'll add it to my own OUAT list. :-)

Cindy Austin said...

You do have some great ones on there. CS Lewis is always a win! Right now I am reading Magdala, it's by Valerie Gross. A cool read about Mary Magdalene and her relationship with Jesus. It does make you look at those events a little differently.

I've just signed up for your blog. I love the Laura Ingalls Wilder books and particularly enjoyed Little House on the Prarie. I haven't read Pioneer Girl - I understand it's very different and much darker than Laura's other books. I'm going to visit a Christian bookshop tomorrow (in Birmingham UK)to see if I can buy or order a Rainbow Study Bible (KJV I think).

I love your site and I'm glad that I've found it.

Warm Regards

What I have read by Jessica Day George I have liked. I need to read more from her. Shadow Scale is on my radar, too, but I would really like to reread Seraphina first and just haven't had a chance. Look forward to seeing what you read!
