So, I've had this post half-written for over a month! Finally got around to finishing it...the things you do when your husband is away.
I'm always looking for a good book recommendation, so here are a few from me and I hope that you will comment with a few of your own for me to read this year.
Here they are (in no particular order, because they were all good), the top ten books that I could not put down in 2010:
1. Redeeming Love: Last year I fell in love with Francine Rivers. She is the best Christian Fiction writer I have ever read, bar none. This is definitely one of her best! It is a retelling of sorts of the story of Hosea set in the days of the Gold Rush. Its beautiful story of love had surprising impact on me.
2 & 3. The #1 Ladies Detective Agency Series (Books 10 and 11): I know that some of you just cannot seem to get into these, but I love them! They are light, quick reading with a super lovable main character, Precious Ramotswe. The stories are interesting, yet not intense and I love all the background of Botswana. And doubly great, they have turned the books into an HBO mini-series that are well worth a watch.
4 & 5. Her Mother's Love/Her Daughter's Hope: Like I said, I fell in love with Francine Rivers, so I read a lot of her books last year. This sequel was precious in its telling of mother/daughter relationships; how we so often misunderstand each other thereby missing really knowing each other and really loving each other well. Plus, I loved that it starts out in Europe and in places that I've seen.
So there you have it. I've already raced through The Mark of the Lion Trilogy which is sure to make it onto this year's list. Now it is your turn...what do you recommend?
