Five Fall Favorites - Day Four

Perhaps it's a little early in the morning for bonfires... but still. The weather is changing (slower in these Southern states, but it's changing), and reading by the fire is nothing but cozy!

5 Favorite Western Books
I actually haven't read many western books that give me the western feel I'm looking for. I love the era, the genre, but when I think about "western books," it's hard for me to suddenly list five. But here are some that I enjoy nevertheless.

1) Everyday Life in the Wild West by Candy Moulton

2) Shane by Jack Schaefer

3) The Boy Who Became Buffalo Bill by Andrea Warren

4) Hymns of the West series by Faith Blum
18716182 23816664 24985796 27220924 29621334

5) A Treasure Concealed by Tracie Peterson

5 Favorite Inspirational Books
Maybe I did a little cheating in listing "five" below (er, maybe I've been cheating all week...). ;) You be the judge, but I enjoy this genre...

1) Lady in Waiting by Jackie Kendall and Debbie Jones

2) The Pursuit of God by A.W. Tozer

3) Elizabeth George's Bible Studies (Philippians, 1 Peter, others)
31382 18912561 18912566

4) Louder than Words by Andy Stanley

Oh, some fun books! I haven't read most of these so it was fun to read your list. :)

Bethany R. said...

I read Shane, but didn't particularly appreciate the ending. :( But Thank you for sharing all these with us!

Ashley said...

Ooooh. Everyday Life in the Wild West looks good! I've heard about Lady in Waiting. Those two books I now want to read. :)
And The Hymns of the West series is one I have wanted sooooo badly to read. I read Life and Salvation, and it was so good. This party is so much fun! Thank you for sharing your favorites. :D
Have a good and godly day!

I'm related to Buffalo Bill. Fourth-great-grandfather... or something like that? So that's cool. ;) And have you heard of Pawnee Bill? (He was Buffalo Bill's show partner for a while.) We were able to visit Pawnee Bill's ranch out in Pawnee, Oklahoma last Saturday! :)


Raechel said...

I just recently bought "Lady in Waiting" - looking forward to reading it!

Faith P. said...

I really want to read the Hymns of the West novels! I've read several of the novellas and enjoyed them :D

CutePolarBear said...

Those look like good books! I want to read a Tracie Peterson book now. ;)


Holly said...

I NEED to get the rest of the Hymn's of the Faith series! Such a good writer!

Emma said...

I'm looking forward to reading Hymns of the West.

Amanda T. said...

@ Rebekah - it's always fun when someone hasn't read most on my list. ;)

@ Bethany - yeah... the ending was "ish." I liked how western it felt though. It's not actually my highest rated book because of language and such.

@ Ashley - it's a very informative book!
Oh yes, you need to get into the Hymns of the West series! :)

@ Kimberly - huh, that's pretty cool! Hadn't heard of Pawnee Bill.

@ Raechel - I really liked it! I'm not big into "books for singles," but that one was different.

@ Faith P. - oh, you should! The first one is perma free. ;) I like her novels better than the novellas!

@ CutePolarBear - haha! Tracie Peterson has a ton of books too!

@ Holly - yes, you should!! :D

@Emma - hope you like them! :)
