Experimentation on Books....

Photobucket



Let's try something fun, created by Becky Miller over at A Christian Worldview of Fiction! I was tagged by MJ at Creative Madness

Here’s how it will work....


I’m going to list five MUST Read novels and five Keep Your Eyes on These novels, then tag five bloggers who I’m asking to post my list on their site. They may then add one book to each list but must also subtract one book. Finally they should tag five other bloggers, link here at A Christian Worldview of Fiction, and comment to this post so visitors here know to check out how they may have changed the list. (I don't tend to play fair, so I'm adding my OWN category *grin*...you can play along or delete it...up to you).


If you aren’t tagged but want to play, copy the how to paragraph above, make your own list of MUST Reads and Keep Your Eyes on These, and tag away. It will be fun to see if we can generate some book wars … uh, I mean, discussions … good, healthy, respectful discussions! ;-)

NOTE: On my post, my selection is a different color than the others, and a * means I agree with the book being on the list.

MY FIVE MUST READS:

Demon: a Memoir by Tosca Lee (NavPress)*
A Promise to Remember by Kathryn Cushman (Bethany House)*
The Restorer by Sharon Hinck (NavPress)*
Beyond the Reflection's Edge by Bryan Davis (Zondervan)

Riven by Jerry B. Jenkins (Tyndale)



MY FIVE NON-FICTION MUST READS:

Crazy Love by Francis Chan (David C. Cook)
The Beautiful Fight by Gary Thomas (Zondervan)
Wilderness Skills for Women by Marian Jordan (B&H)
Lost Boy by Greg Laurie (Regal)
Saturdays With Stella by Allison Pittman (Multnomah)

MY FIVE 'KEEP YOUR EYES ON THESE':

Scarlet by Stephen Lawhead (Thomas Nelson)*
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness by Andrew Peterson (WaterBrook)*
Auralia’s Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet (WaterBrook)*
The Edge of Recall by Kristen Heitzmann (Bethany)*

Searching For Spice by Megan DiMaria (Tyndale)


MY FIVE BOOKS TO LOOK FOR SOON:

Shade by John Olson (B&H)*
Field of Blood by Eric Wilson (Thomas Nelson)*
Stepping into Sunlight by Sharon Hinck (Bethany)*
Eternity's Edge by Bryan Davis (Zondervan)
Faking Grace by Tamera Leigh (Multnomah)



MY TAGGED BLOGGERS:

Rel at Relz Reviewz
Kim at Window to My World
Deb at Books, Movies, and Chinese Food
Stacy at Vader's Mom
Ty at CBReviews

Hopefully, they'll all have time to play along! Don't forget to leave me a comment to guide me to YOUR list, and visit Becky (the originator) to leave her a comment as well:-)

Deena,
I love your lists! I really want to read Greg Laurie's new book. And I love the addition of the Non-Fiction book category.

Great job!
Blessings,

Deena,

Fun to read some of the other lists.

Mine's up too as Becky pegged me in her list and then what do I get for putting off doing anything about it - Another tag from further down the line LOL.
