Five Fall Favorites - Day Two

Welcome to day two of our "Five Fall Favorites" party! Grab a blanket, get all cozy, as we discuss romance and historical reads. Don't forget -- I like to hear which books are your favorites in these genres too, so be sure to comment!

5 Favorite Romance Books
This one is probably the hardest genre for me, as I am not exactly sure what classifies as "romance." If you've followed my review for any length of time, you probably noticed that I usually say something like, "It was great, but the romance..." ;) So, I suppose I'm going to choose five books that I liked that have romance in them. They may or may not be classified as "romance" though.

1) Wings of a Dream by Anne Mateer

2) A Dream Not Imagined by Shantelle Mary Hannu

3) The Lost Heiress by Roseanna White

4) The Sound of Diamonds by Rachelle Rea Cobb

5) Playing the Part by Jen Turano

5 Historical Fiction
Historical fiction is by far my favorite genre to read (and, actually, most of the books that I read...). So here goes! (I'm limited to only five...)

1) An Elegant Facade by Kristi Ann Hunter

2) Beyond the Silence by Tracie Peterson and Kimberly Woodhouse

3) Seasons of the Heart (series) by Janette Oke

4) Where Can I Flee? by A.M. Heath

5) Lily of the Valley by Faith Blum

Thanks for the offer of a blanket. I'll take one and curl up with a stack of books. Can I borrow your Top 5 for Historical Fiction to look through? :)
Great post, Amanda! I already listed my favorites, so I won't do it again.

Faith P. said...

I love A Dream Not Imagined!!

Bethany Stelzl said...

Love the Hymns of the west series :D thanks for all the book recommendations :D

Emily said...

These look like some good recommendations! =)

CutePolarBear said...

I had never heard of Tracie Peterson, but my mom has, so that's one more book I will be adding to my To-Read list! ;) I don't believe I've heard of any of your listed books. Woe is me! :P

I love historical fiction! One series I really enjoyed that mixed historical fiction with romance really well was the Edge of Freedom series by Elizabeth Ludwig.

Blessing Counter said...

Ohh....these books look amazing! And yes, historical fiction is one of my favourite genres too! :D

Bethany R. said...

I really want to read "A Dream Not Imagined." I adore the covers of "The Lost Heiress" and "The Sound of Diamonds." I'll have to add those to my list. :)

Jesseca Dawn said...

"Wings of a Dream", "Season of the Heart", and "A Dream not Imagined" are all amazing!! "Where can I Flee" sounds really good. I'll have to check it out! :)

Raechel said...

Of this list, I believe I've only read "A Dream Not Imagined", which was super sweet. :)
I am picky about my romance reading too...I tend to like romance books, but only a select few. ^.^

Ashley said...

Hi Amanda! I really like the fall favorites you and the other bloggers are doing. I love seeing which books are your favorites.
I have only read one out of the books you listed, A Drwam Not Imagined, but I've wanted to read Lily of the Valley and Playing the Part.
Have a good and godly day!
Love in Christ,

Holly said...

Ah... I can't wait to read the Lily of the Valley! Such a good series! Thanks for sharing!
