Top Ten Tuesday


Hosted by The Broke and The Bookish

Top Ten Tuesday Freebie: Pick My Own Category.
Top Ten Christian Fiction

1. Safely Home by Randy Alcorn
This book touched me in so many ways.  It's about Christianity in China.  What we see is not what really goes on.  It's a work of fiction, but it contains a lot of truth.

2. Covenant Child by Terri Blackstock
An allegory for Jesus's love for his children, a beautiful piece of literature.

3. Restoration Series by Terri Blackstock
I haven't finished this series, one book left, but already it's pretty high on my list for not just Christian fiction, but fiction in general.  In a sense, I guess you could say it's a Christian Dystopian Series.  I think we all know the dystopian part is temporary.  But, I haven't read the conclusion so I don't really know how the world ends up.

4. Sisterchicks Series by Robin Jones Gunn
Each story can be read on it's own.  The connection is they're all sisterchicks.  What is a sisterchick?  A friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you're being a brat.  (www.squidoo.com/sisterchicks)  Each book is a trip to a new place, London, the Netherlands, Paris, Hawaii, Venice, New Zealand, and Finland.  

5. O'Malley Series by Dee Henderson
Suspense, romance, and Christianity wrapped into one. This series has it all. It's about orphans all grown up.  They were never adopted so they formed their own family and created their own surname--O'Malley. Each one has a highly suspenseful job that creates the main plot for each story. I found each book to be predictable but still a joy to read.

6. Coming Home to Brewster Series by Roxanne Henke
This series is about a bunch of women who live in Brewster, North Dakota. It's about finding God and finding out where your true home is. Roxanne Henke is a fabulous writer. If you like both Christian and women's literature this is definitely a series you don't want to miss. I'm just sad there's only five books in this series.

7. The Awakening by Angela Hunt
The main character suffers from agoraphobia which only increases when her mother dies leaving her alone in her apartment.  Can God and her new neighbor help set her free?

8. The Debt by Angela Hunt
This story has a powerful message.  We must not stay in our comfort zones.  We need to go where the needy are.  They're not going to come to us.  It will not be easy.  People may talk.  But, we need to do what we need to no matter what others think.

9. Like Dandelion Dust by Karen Kingsbury
This one was turned into a movie.  I haven't seen the movie.  Now that I've read the book I do want to see it.  A mother and father find out the adoption of their son was illegal.  Breaks a parent's heart.  What will they do to keep their son?  What will the law make them do?  Heart wrenching.

10. Seasons of Grace Trilogy by Beverly Lewis
The top writer of Amish Fiction.  All of her series are great, but I chose this one as I have rated it the highest.    With so many series under her belt how can she make one unique so the reader doesn't feel they are reading the same story over and over?  This one includes an adopted son who runs away, a mother with an injury, and a girl with a confused heart as well as a Prodigal Daughter.
