Hello and welcome to the second day of Five Fall Favorites, hosted by Rebekah Morris! (Be sure and visit her site for more fun content and links to more posts!)
For those who are new to FFF, this is a weeklong fall celebration of books we love from different genres! Each day, each participant will have a different theme and one of them is a Book Room with a free story so make sure you check every post! My theme for the day is…
I love a good bonfire with a hot mug of Apple Cider and a warm brownie (I’m not big on s’mores 😉)! I love singing songs and talking about upcoming plans with friends and family. Who’s getting married and when the next baby in the family is due… precious memories! I actually remember a time we met with other young people and discussed classics we thought were over or underrated! It was fun to see literary factions form and reform as different works were brought up!
All that being said, let’s get by the fire, grab a mug of cider and talk about some family favorites to add to your TBR list today!
1| The Moody Family Series by Sarah Maxwell
This series is a huge hit with my family! There are 10 books and two Christmas novellas all about a sweet homeschool family and their daily lives! As a conservative, homeschooling family, it was an encouragement to us to know there were other people with similar standards and convictions as us and reminded us of why we do what we do: not to get attention from or to look down on others with different standards, but to please God above all else! Highly recommended to the entire family!
2| The Sugar Creek Gang by Paul Hutchins
Having grown up on the radio programs that shared these stories, I was thrilled to gift my sister with a complete, matching edition set for Christmas! She has read them to all of us over the years and we have all enjoyed them so much! She even changes her voices for each character, so it's the best “audio book” ever! If you like wholesome stories about boys growing up and growing in their walk with God, these books will not disappoint! It’s like the Christian version of the Hardy boys!
3| The Ester Reid Series by Isabella Alden
My heart…these books hold such a dear spot in our family’s life. My mom raised us on books and read to us often and this series has been read to us at least three times. It is so deep and captivating, convicting and yes, entertaining as well. Are you saved, but miserable in your Christian life? Are you asleep to your reasonable service? Have you strayed from the teaching of the Word of God? Please, pick these books up and give them a read. They are worth the time.
4| The Courtship Series by Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Castleberry
These books are some of my personal favorites! They explain relationships in a way that romance novels will never be able to grasp. What does a Christ-Honoring relationship look like? How does one guard their heart exactly? What if you are interested in the wrong person? What if…God has called you to wait? This series is beautiful and my whole family has enjoyed them over the years! Modern classics *halo*
5| The Farm Mystery Series by Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Castleberry
Ten books of logical, hilarious and scientific goodness! The mysteries these siblings solve range from farm fiascos, suspicious cars, the science of vapor and even who borrowed the tools that no one remembers lending out! Is it possible to blend a family with children who don’t speak English? And if dad takes on a new job, what does that mean for the farm?? This is a minuscule sampling of what is in store for you when you pick up a Farm Mystery book! Get your copy ASAP!
