My Favorite Stories

I’ve decided to make an updated list of my favorite books/plays/stories. Here they are (the Bible is not listed but it is definitely the most important book in my life):

  1. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott–I LOVE this story so much!
  2. Our Town by Thorton Wilder–this play is so deep. I’ve seen it twice and read it once, and it is fantastic. The perspective it gives you is one I’d recommend to anyone.
  3. The Mapmaker’s Trilogy by S.E Grove– I have only completely read the first two, but they are absolutely amazing.
  4. Dracula by Bram Stoker–I think this book is likely a surprise to anyone who knows me. I’m not a horror person, I am a fairly quiet person who likes princesses and broadway and Jesus, but I really enjoy this book. I regret I have only read most of it, but it is amazing.
  5. The Edge on the Sword by Rebecca Tingle–This book is a hidden treasure. It is practically unknown, but I love this book. It was almost always at the library, and I kept checking it out (no I didn’t read it that much). When I would look at the used book section of a bookstore nearby, a copy was always there. It was a little more expensive than I would have liked, but eventually I gave in and bought the poor, lonely copy.
  6. The Princess Spy by Melanie Dickerson–A new favorite of mine, but a great book for anyone who likes Christian fiction and the medieval time period.

I could probably go on and on and on, but I am going to keep this list short and sweet.

    • Awesome! I have to read The Fairest Beauty and The Healer’s Apprentice (my friend lent them to me), so I’ll have to get to them this summer. I adored The Princess Spy. Melanie Dickerson really needs to write more stories about Margaretha and Colin.

      I’ll have to check out your reviews!
