Faith 'n Fiction Saturdays: What's on Your Keeper Shelf?

Another of Amy's Faith 'n' Fiction questions!

This from Amy:~
"One thing we share in common is a love of books. I know there are participants of Faith 'n Fiction Saturdays that read over 200 books a year! But while we may read a lot of books, only a few books in our lifetimes are special enough that we would never part with them, always recommend them, and maybe even reread them. So...what fiction books with faith elements are on your keeper shelf?

Please keep your answers to no more than 5 books!"

My answer
(Amy allowed series to be considered one selection!):

1. The O'Malley series by Dee Henderson. Great books! Romance and mystery put in together... I love it!

2. Jane Austen series by Debra White Smith. 6 of Jane Austen's books modernized. They're really well-written :)

3. Homeland Heroes series by Donna Fleisher.

4. A Life of Faith series by Martha Finley. I love 'em, I love 'em, I love 'em! Great series, and they're especially great for younger girls!

5. Hollywood Nobody series by Lisa Samson. These are great for teenagers :)

I too love the O'Malley series! And the Jane Austen series by Debra White Smith is one of my favorites :) Her sister's series is good too.

Hope you have a blessed day!

I've read the O'Malley series and agree with you, and I enjoy Lisa Samson. Thanks.

Wow I haven't read ANY of these! Thanks for the tips. This is a GREAT Q today - getting so many new leads for good reads.

I haven't read any of yours but Dee Henderson is one I plan to read soon.

Also, my daughter loves Jane Austen so I will be checking into those books for her.

So glad you put up Dee's series. I didn't because I put up a single title instead of a 5th series like the rest of my choices! Need to check out the Austen books.

These are books I hadn't heard of, so I'm adding them to the list of must reads also.

With the exception of Dee Henderson, these are new to me - though I have heard of the Jane Austin series.

I loved both the Austen books by DWS and the Hollywood Nobody books - good choices!

I read Debra White Smith's series this summer lounging around in the pool and loved them!

Absolutely love the O'Malley series!!! Have you read the new book out by Irene Hannon? I forget the book title but it's book #1 in the Hereos of Quantico series. The writing and story remind me a lot of Dee.

Amy said...

I loved the O'Malleys, too! And I love everything by Lisa Samson. :)
