Many of my favorite memories are of curling up with a hot cup of green tea as I trek through my stories. Whether it’s journeying through a creaky house with Nancy Drew, enjoying the splendor of Green Gables with Anne Shirley, running around with the Penderwick sisters and their various friends, walking around in God’s nature with one of Janette Oke’s heroes and heroines (my favorite is named Ariana Benson), running through Sherwood Forest with Robin Hood, or coming face-to-face with Aslan as I journey with the Pevensie children and Prince Caspian (I really like Prince Caspian!).
However, you may already know that it is challenging to find books that are even fairly Christian. We used to go to the library fairly frequently, and I would bring home dozens of books. Some of them I finished, liked, and bought (those have long since been purchased and are sitting on my bookcase), and others I just started and put down. The modern influences in fiction are not appreciated by many Christians, including myself. And, while many may enjoy classic literature, it may become tedious to others after long hours of attempting to read it, and decipher what is considered archaic language.
This section will introduce and bring up many books I have found enjoyable and fun, without being un-Christian. Many of them are written by Christian authors, and many of them I enjoy even though some of them are considered ‘juvenile fiction’. I hope that you enjoy my suggestions and that they help you. If you have any similar suggestions, please comment, because I’m always on the look-out for Christian fiction to read! My first priority, though, is reading God’s word, better than any work of fiction written. God created us to read, so that we would read what he wanted us to read.
God bless you,
-A Christian Girl

A New Look for My Blog
As I’m preparing to start up the new school year, I’m happy to freshen up my blog with this new turquoise look. I hope that you all enjoy it. The butterfly doodle is mine, and I think it adds a nice little look. I was inspired to change my look for a more simplistically cute […]
A Biblical Worldview vs. A Secular Worldview
If you type in ‘worldview definition’ on your Google Search Engine, you’ll probably see this: If your worldview is your particular philosophy of life or conception of the world, then the worldview is the most singularly important thing that you can ground in this life. As Christians, our worldviews should include what I’ve heard called […]
Happy New Year’s, everyone! I was tagged for the New Year’s Book Tag by my very good friend, Emma, at Bookish Daughters of the King. She’s a very sweet blogger, and a very nice person. I love to talk with her about books, and I’m honored to do this book tag. Thanks so much, Emma! […]

It’s Friday!!! Wow, what a relief. Today, I was inspired to write a different kind of post. This week, my mom was teaching my younger siblings about the Vikings, and she read aloud this really interesting book to them. I was doing my own school, cooking, and prepping for Christmas, so I didn’t really catch […]
My friend, Emma at Bookish Daughters of the King, released a post on musical characters, and on her list I found a historical fiction Christian romance novel set in the 1950s, called Love Me Tender by Janice Hanna. I mean, it literally sounded like my ideal book, so I was quick to get it, and […]
The Green Ember burns; the seed of the New World smolders. Healing is on the horizon, but a fire comes first. Bear the flame. This quote comes from one of my favorite books, which happens to be the center point of focus for this blog post. Yesterday I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do […]
I was building this book tag centered around friendship, and I asked Emma❤ to collaborate with me on this post. I’ve never done a collaboration post before, so this is very exciting. Emma is a highly talented, very special blogger, avid reader, and follower of Christ. She blessed me by doing this post. Thanks again, […]
Adventure is out there! No, seriously, it is. I love adventure stories. There are so many great ones. Great, epic quests. I like reading Jules Verne’s Around the World in Eighty Days, for one. Not only is it filled with a great adventure spanning over the entire globe, but it’s also filled with fun characters, […]
Hi, there! I’m sorry it’s been a while since I posted. Life’s been busy and I kinda forgot about releasing new posts. This week is our break from school, though, so I’ve been able to spend a little more time catching up. Today, I’m going to try something a little new, though… I was looking […]
I love to read. I’m currently taking a literature course, and when I go to college I plan on majoring in English. As such, I love reading classic books, but I don’t stop there. I’ll read basically anything, anytime. However, there are certain times of the year that tend to be better for one book […]
I love the Penderwick stories! Jeanne Birdsall weaves a beautiful story of summer days, with excitement between the pages, and the comfort of home and love between the lines. She transports me to a world not far from my own, and yet surrounded with worries that do not seem important, and surrounded with achievements of […]
