the thursday thirty, issue five.

i’m such a bookworm. it’s been a trait of mine since before i even truly learned how to read, when i decided to carry around a 99 cent dictionary everywhere i possibly could – never mind if i could actually pronounce any of the words it contained. i hope my love for prose never ceases, and in honor of that, here are 30 of my favorite books.

  • anne of green gables // lucy maud montgomery
  • rachel’s tears // beth nimmo & darrell scott
  • my utmost for His highest // oswald chambers
  • a long way gone // ishmael beah
  • the pillars of the earth // ken follett
  • the green book // elizabeth rogers & tom kostiken
  • the challenge of missions // oswald j. smith
  • walking on water // madeline l’engle
  • the sisterhood of the traveling pants series // anne brashares [don’t judge me…]
  • the other boleyn girl // philippa gregory
  • breaking free // beth more
  • to kill a mockingbird // harper lee
  • the canterbury tales // geoffrey chaucer
  • the historian // elizabeth kostova
  • the kite runner // khaled hosseini
  • velvet elvis // rob bell
  • the poisonwood bible // barbara kingsolver
  • abundance // sena jeter naslund
  • prisoners of hope // dana curry & heather mercer
  • kingdom ethics // glen stassen & david gushee
  • blue highways // william least heat-moon
  • cold mountain // charles frazier
  • divine secrets of the ya-ya sisterhood // rebecca wells
  • love you forever // robert munsch [who said children’s books couldn’t be on the list? :D]
  • authentic beauty // leslie ludy
  • four souls // matt kronberg, jedd medefind, mike peterson, & trey sklar
  • the diary of anne frank
  • she said yes // misty bernall
  • the daily round [this devotional from the 1800’s is one of my favorite flea market finds.]
  • the mates, dates, and inflatable bras series // cathy hopkins [mmhmm.]
