Andrea over at My Chihuahua Bites hosts this meme every Thursday. I’ve thought about linking up before but when I saw this week’s topic I knew I had to link up! This week we’re talking about books. If you’ve been around for awhile, you know I love to read (The WYE? Challenge speaks to that!)
So the question is:
"What three books are most important to you/do you re-read most frequently?"
I think it goes without saying that the Bible is the most important book to me. I’m not always digging into as I should but it has everything I need for life in there. No matter how many times I read it, there is always something new for me. So, since that one is obvious, I’m going to share three less obvious with you:
1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I didn’t read these books until I was an adult. I was in Viet Nam and I came across them at my country director’s house. English books can be scarce when you’re overseas and you take what you can get! I got hooked. My second year in Nam I brought the whole series with me and I read them about once a month. I just fell in love with Anne Shirley. How can you not love her? (Picture Source)
2. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I love, love, love this series. All of them. My favorite book of the series in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader with The Magician’s Nephew being a close second. The only one in the series I don’t care for is The Silver Chair. The Man loves these books as well and we often talk about them. We have a book that has 365 reading from all 7 books and we read one each night. We will probably fight at bedtime to be the one who’s reading these to Munchkin. She will be read them from an early age! (Picture Source)
3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
I’ve read this series about 6 or 7 times. There’s just something about them that keep pulling me in. I’m sure I’ll be reading them a few more times this year!
Others that I enjoy and reread often:
Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling.
Every Storm by Lori Wick
The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
