Gilbert Morris’ books are not overly “preachy”, but the message definitely gets across to us. This series is touching enough to bring you to tears (if you’re sensitive, like me), is sometimes hysterically funny, and is full of adventure. The characters are endearing and memorable, and every book is different and interesting in plot. I highly recommend this series to those who would enjoy a good historical with a romantic element.
♥ The Host by Stephenie Meyer – I loved it! My review of it can be found here.
♥ Aurora’s Colors by Jeffrey Overstreet – Kind of long and descriptive, but definitely a unique book. Aurora’s character was fascinating to me, as was the world Overstreet created. :-)
♥ Tis Myself by Maureen O’Hara – Maureen O’Hara’s autobiography is really interesting. She had a wonderful childhood, grew up practically in the theatre, and then made her first movie at 17 (Jamaica Inn). At 19 she married a man who made the next five years of her life miserable – he was abusive and drunk. I was surprised to find that she had been struggling so much during movies such as Miracle on 34th Street. Life always looks so perfect in those movies… Definitely a good read, I recommend it!
♥ I’m taking a break from the Cheney series for now and reading Breaking Dawn, the fourth book in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. I’ve only read the first chapter so I can’t say much yet. :-)
