The TOP TEN on the Bookshelf

At the end of the year, I post about the top ten books of the year. Before I do that, which will be in a few weeks, I want to share with you my top favorites from the Read Shelf of my bookshelf. These are the top books that I will keep and reread multiple of times.

I will start with the most favorite of them all and go in descending order. Hope you enjoy and maybe you will find a new book to add to your collection. 

The Blue Flower by Henry van Dyke
~This century-plus old novel holds a treasure of allegorical stories to Jesus' ministries while on earth. Rich in prose and vivid in imagination, I can never part with this book.

Tapestry of Trust by Mary Annslee Urban
~Like a tapestry where the threads weave in and out to create a picture, this book contains threads of love, forgiveness, trust, and sacrifice wove into a beautiful story.

Pirate by Night by Lisa Asenato
~To chose revenge or redemption is harder than it seems. This book tells a richly inspiring tale of love.

Space Drifters: The Emerald Enigma by Paul Regnier
~Parables, allegories, and symbolism combine in this fast paced, highly entertaining, but thought provoking space adventure.

from Dishes to Snow by Kathy M. Howard
~Truthfully poignant and true to life, this book shows how God can heal the most heartbroken of them all.

Hope by Josephine Walker
~Mystery and faith weave a fantastic story that counters superstition and fear where only Truth wins.

Willing to Die by John Muntean
~The true history of Romania and one man's attempt to save his family and people show history repeating itself, especially in America.

Darkness Follows by Mike Dellosso
~Symbolism and Faith, the Bible and its truth, demons and their lies, all combat as one man tries to unravel the dangerous mystery consuming him.

Dynamo by Eleanor Gustafson
~God equips. God leads. Such a heartbreaking story of two rebellious souls who form a bond and how each is a part of God's glory.

Good-Bye, Lover by Rachel Britz
~A sweet but deeply provoking book about ultimate sacrifice and the rewards of trusting in His love.
