Bibliophile + Reviews

Whenever I’m sitting down – which isn’t often – I feel compelled to be reading something.  Anything.  Even the back of a cereal box.  I  grew up in a house groaning with books and read a book a week on average, sometimes more.  My “home away from home” is the public library.  They *finally* invented a word for people like me: bibliophile.

So, in response to numerous requests for a “recommended reading list,” here’s the abridged version.  🙂   In no particular order:


Walking With God, Waking the Dead, Captivating: Unveiling the Mysteries of a Woman’s Soul

Ruby Slippers: How the Soul of a Woman Brings Her Home

These Strange Ashes, In the Shadow of the Almighty, A Path Through Suffering: Discovering the Relationship Between God’s Mercy and our Pain

The Applause of Heaven, When God Whispers Your Name

Secrets of the Vine, The Dream Giver

For Those Who Hurt

Cold Tangerines

The Grapes of Wrath, Travels with Charley

The Last Place on Earth


Babette’s Feast

The Velveteen Rabbit

The Little Prince

Les Miserables

The Harmony Series

The Mitford Series

Sense and Sensibility

The Grand Inquisitor

Jane Eyre

Silas Marner, Middlemarch

The Scarlet Letter

Great Expectations, A Tale of Two Cities, Bleak House, Martin Chuzzlewit

My list of favorite authors is ridiculous.  Here’s the short list (in no particular order):

Max Lucado, Philip Gulley, John Eldredge, Frederick Buechner, Charles Swindoll, Jan Karon, Elisabeth Elliot, Richard Paul Evans, Charles Dickens, Isak Dinesen, Jane Austen and Dostoyevsky.
