10 Day YOU Challenge | 4 Books

Although I am not the reader that I once was, I still love books! Here are a few that I can think of off the top of my head today. :)

1. The Bible. I read the King James Version. I've had a lot of people tell me that they don't like to read this because the language is hard to understand, but with practice you get better at understanding it so it's really not that bad.

The Wakefield Dynasty by Gilbert Morris.
(I have all the books except #5)

2. The Wakefield Dynasty by Gilbert Morris. A great series in which each books follows the life of the children of the main characters in the previous book. I love them! I love the time setting that the books are written in and the characters are awesome! The story lines are similar in some of the books, but they are different enough that they are all worth reading!

3. The Shack by WM. Paul Young. This book is one we read as a family years ago. Before then I never ready any 'scary' stories and I haven't since then. I really thought this was a really interesting story. I really liked it but I doubt I would read it again because I don't like to read things like this twice.

Kiss by Ted Dekker & Erin Healy.

4. Kiss by Ted Dekker. Although I've only read a few of Ted Dekker's books, this was by far my favorite! Probably because it was the very first book of his that I read, but is my favorite Ted Dekker book and I would read it again!

I had a hard time choosing between Kiss and Divine by Karen Kingsbury. That is also a great read about a girl who was abused as a child and once she is older she reaches out to abused women while trying to recover from her own past of abuse.

Read the other posts in this series: 10 Secrets, 9 Loves, 8 Fears, 7 Wants, 6 Places, 5 Foods, 4 Books, 3 Films, 2 Songs, 1 Photo.


  1. except for the series (#2), I have either read those books, or books by those authors, and loved them. I tend to read the New KJV for my every day study, but for just plain beauty of language, I prefer the KJV.

    1. Oh I love Gilbert Morris books, although he has a tendancy to carry similar storylines throught series of books...this one doesn't seem to be like that. Yes, I love the language in KJV too!


  2. great list! I haven't heard of #s 2-4 but they seem interesting.

    Also I gave you an award on my blog!

    1. Oh they are very interesting books for sure! :) Thank you Nicole!!! I will write up a post soon!


  3. Oh, I want to read the shack. SOunds interesting. For some reason it reminds me of Ender's Game. I think that's what it's called. Im going to check it out now. Thanks for sharing =)
