Tuesday Ten: Favorite Books

The Golden Spoons

These are books that I read over and over again:

The Bible: I try to read it cover to cover every year---right now I'm in the middle of Numbers.

The Shack, William Young: This book actually changed my personal relationship with God, and helped me find a way to feel closer to Him on a daily basis.

Gone With The Wind, Margaret Mitchell: I also watch the movie at least once a year....but the book is so much more in-depth and so much better.

Bridges Of Madison County, Robert James Waller: Love this movie as well.....but with the book I can always skip easily to my favorite sections and read them.

Wuthering Heights, Emily Bronte: My favorite romantic classic.

These are books  that I have recently discovered:

Twelve Years A Slave, Solomon Northup: Read it before watching the movie, and was SO moved by it. I have a feeling it will move into the read and re-read category.

Somewhere In Time, Richard Matheson: As many times as I've seen this movie (my all time favorite film, in fact!) I can't believe I'd never read the book until this weekend. So much more emotion than the movie, and I cried several times.

Beneath It All, Tori Madison: This is a fabulous  fictional story of a woman diagnosed with breast cancer--her medical and emotional experiences rang very true with me.  Looking forward to reading the sequel in the near future.

Remnant Series:  Faith Departed, Hope Deferred, Love Defined, Elizabeth Maddrey: Christian fiction about twin sisters and their husbands, fighting infertility, and their different paths. Well-written and heart-wrenching.

Who R U Really?, Margo Kelly:  I recommend this one to anyone who has teens online. It's a little too over the top with its warnings in places, but overall it is an amazing cautionary tale.

A Few Of My Favorite Things.....

List five of your most recent favorite things:

1) Bigelow White Chocolate Obsession tea: Barry bought me a box of this tea over the weekend, and I love it. It has white AND dark chocolate in it, as well as black tea, and is tasty with or without sugar.

2) Goodreads First Reads giveaways: I've won 38 books from them since June of last year, and there are new giveaways posted every day.

3) How To Get Away With Murder: Probably the best crime show since Law and Order.

4) Ghiradelli Squares Valentine's chocolate assortment: Something else Barry got me this weekend. It has milk chocolate with caramel filling, dark chocolate with strawberry filling, and 60% cacao dark chocolate.

5) Super Bowl halftime show: One of the best I've seen in years. Katy's outfits, her entrance, the colors of the entire show, Katy flying during "Firework"---it was simply amazing!

And what about those Super Bowl commercials?  Budweiser, Doritos, Nationwide, Mercedes Benz---those were the most memorable ones for me.
