Tuesday Blog Hop- Favorite Book....

This week's blog hop theme is favorite book. At one point I would have nothing to share for this, but allow me to rewind a bit. Growing up I remember enjoying when my mom would read to us. I specifically remember her reading the Box Car Children Books to us before we could read. I also remember going through the stage of loving Babysitter Club (anyone remember those?) and Nancy Drew books. But shortly after I grew out of those books reading really became a chore only done for school. If I read (besides enjoying the comics) it was because I had to. I had mentioned, at one point, my dislike of reading to my friend Britney and she said she had felt the same way until she read "this" book. I really had my doubts but I thought I would give it a try. Well, it changed my outlooks on books forever.

The book I am referring to is "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers. I'm a bit of a romantic and anything with the beauty of a good romance gets me hooked. But this one is a different kind of romance. Have you ever had something you know is wrong but you just can't help doing it over and over again. Spending money when you know shouldn't, little white lies to your husband, gossiping about friends, filling your mind with inappropriate images or lyrics. This is the story for you. A husband takes a wife and no matter how many times she deceives him he always takes her back and loves her unconditionly. Don't take my word for it though. Read it for yourself, you will not be dispappointed. It made me truly enjoy reading again. Be sure to come back and tell me what you thought!

Since then I have throughly enjoyed ALL of Francine Rivers books. My other personal favorite is her 3 book series The Mark of the Lion . It is so captivating, addicting, and intense. On our honeymoon I happened to finish one of the books and I made the hubs search practically all over Maui for a book store that carried the next book! Yes it was that good. (side note: he's so good to me, nothing like a Hello Marriage reality check!) Oh and I also really loved the Atonement Child...ok I'm sorry I could practically list all of her books as my favorite. They are all so different but all beautifully written. They are also very easy reads! Also the romantic in me has also really enjoyed Dee Henderson and all of her books too!

So, here is mine. When I was a little girl my father would sit on the couch with me in his lap and read two books to me, one was Where the Wild Things Are. Between these two books I learned how to read and how to face life. Between these pages and my dad's voice is my childhood.

The other book that was read to me and brings back memories is The Frog and the Toad. This book also keeps my mind and memories alive.
