*Fall Into Reading* {updated}

Well, it's time for Katrina's Fall reading challenge! I had so much fun participating in the Spring challenge that I've really been looking forward to this one. One of the things I most enjoyed was visiting other blogs that were also participating and checking out their reading lists. I'm always looking for the next great book to read and this was a very good way to check out some new or even not-so-new-but-never-read-before books. I also plan to review the books from this list here on my blog as I read them throughout the fall. There's plenty of time if you'd like to join in, check out the details here and here.

My list seems a bit short this time (although there is a 7-book series listed there), but it's going to be a very busy fall. We've just started homeschooling and we are in the process of selling our home and moving, so there's a lot going on around here. But I can always add to my list, right?Right!

  • Total Forgiveness, by R.T. Kendall (currently reading this one)
  • Messy Spirituality, by Michael Yaconelli
  • Stepping Heavenward, by Mrs. E. Prentiss
  • Mount Vernon Love Story, by Mary Higgins Clark
  • A Tale of Three Kings, by Gene Edwards
  • The Russians series (1-7), by Michael Phillips and Judith Pella
  • Finding Your Way, by Tommy Tenny
  • The Secret Life of Bees, by Sue Monk Kidd
  • The Visitation, by Frank Peretti
  • To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee

And with The Princess:


  • The Little House on the Prairie Series (we are currently reading The Little House in the Big Woods)
Happy reading!!

I'm totally doing this this time! Hopefully will get a chance to post my list later today...Little Man is waking up right now.

LOVE the Little House series...you should bring The Princess up to the Laura Ingalls Wilder home (it's about an hour SW of here) when you guys get here. There's a museum and everything...I've driven by but not been to visit.

Have you read The Russians series before...it seems like I remember you telling me about it (or another series by the same authors, maybe?)

You will like Mt. Vernon Love Story. It's been awhile since I have read it, but I remember liking it! :)
And the LHOTP books are great classics! Did you know they have a newer series based on these, for the Caroline years, etc? They are good, too!

Looks like a great reading list.
Autumn is a perfect reading time, isn't it :-)

The Russians series looks really good. It's the only one I've had time to check out so far. All of them look good though. I see The Secret Life of Bees in the store and on best seller lists, so I'm curious to see your review. It was one of the ones that I saw at Sam's and didn't get.

Chatty absolutely LOVES Little House on the Prairie...the shows, the books, the time period...everything. You should look into "A Prairie Primer." I hope I remembered the title correctly off the top of my head. It's a unit study using the Little House books. Might be just your thing.

Super list! Thanks for the note earlier.

Stepping Heavenward is a MUST read or a re-read for me. Love the book. Thanks for sharing your list.

Happy Fall Reading

The wonderful Little House series. I remember stacking up on them at the library. Those were the good ole days. I hope your daughter enjoys them.

Katrina said...

Looks good! You definitely sound busy, but you've got some good books to supplement all your busyness. :)

Thanks for being part of the challenge!

You have a great list of books. I have the secret life of bees on my bookshelf. I hope you like it :-)

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your list sounds good, too. I've tried to read Secret Life of Bees and got sidetracked ~ gotta get back to it someday!!! Happy Reading, Bitsy

Well, I don't have much to read, outside of school work. I am enjoying Blue Like Jazz, so far and hope to read another book by him. Also hope to read another book by Yaconelli!

Love Little HOuse. I reread them a few years back. I think I read that Russians series as well. Good luck!
