Top 13 Favorite books

Day 13: Me with Thirteen things: my thirteen favorite books right now.
 I love theis one because of the kitten trying to play with me. I had to set my timer A LOT because kittens kept running in front of the camera. :)

 The books aren't stacked by favorites but by size if you were wondering.
So my top 13 are (from top of the stack down)-
 Stepping Heavenward by Mrs. E Prentiss {I try to read this little book every year. It is a fictional journal following a woman's life and journey with God from 18 years old to her death. It is very encouraging to me because she isn't perfect but you can see how God grows her throughout her life.}
Finishing Becca by Ann Rinaldi {THis is a young adults book I read multiple times growing up about a girl named Becca who works as a maid during the revolution. Great historical fiction.}
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen {I've read this fully and in pieces over twenty times I think. This is my favorite book by far. Classic. Don't just see the movie!}
Jane Erye  By Charlotte Bronte {This is a classic. Read it!  Again, don't just see the movie, the book is soooooooooo much better!}
The Power of a Praying Wife by Stormie OMartin {Even though I haven't finished this book yet I believe every wife should read/pray through this book. Prayer is so important to marriage. OMartin sets it up great, focusing on one thing a day for 30 chapters that your husband needs prayer for and also may shed some light on things. She covers everything from his fears, his health and trials to his sexuality, purpose and fatherhood. She starts out with a chapter on "his wife." Make sure you pray for yourself too.}
The Holy Bible My favorite translation is the New American Standard. {Reading your Bible consistantly helps with your relationship with God in that you are learnig more about Him and He is revealing things to you and teaching you through His word. Personally, I need to read my Bible everyday to stay focused on God and what is important.}
Little Women by Louisa M. Alcott {You just fall in love with the characters in this classic. I grew up reading this and I love it still.}
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee {Jeff and I both love this book. It's just so good with so much in it!}
Rebecca by Daphne Du Martin {I know what you must be thinking- two of my favorite books have my own name in them. No I'm not vain. :) My Grandma suggested this one to me. It's a romantic suspense story of a young wife living in a grand old house that is haunted by the memory of her husband's late wife, Rebecca. She sets out to discover what happened to the late Mrs. De Winters and the truth is shocking!}
Black Beauty by Anna Sewell {I, like most little girls, went through a horse phase. And while that fettish has died a little, my love for this story hasn't.}
The Lord of the Rings Trilogy by JRR Tolkien {Jeff read these to me while we were dating. It was our favorite thing to do at lunch our senior year of high school. Please please please don't just watch the movies. The books are so beautifully written! and there is so much you miss if you don't read them!}

{By the way, The Hunger Games Triolgy  almost made the list. Also worth a read! But they didn't make my top 13, sorry.}
