One thing is certain here with The Ponderers—we love books. We read them, write them, and (of course) ponder them. We tremble, with weak knees, as we pitch them to editors and agents. We never have enough time to read all the books we want to, and if there’s one thing most of us need, it’s another bookshelf to store all these treasures!
So I think it’s high time we share some of our favorite books. I’ll go first but I hope everyone will pitch in.
Sons of Thunder by Susan May Warren—A fabulous redemptive story set during World War II showing the depths of man’s sin, the breath of human love, and the all-encompassing grace of God.
Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck—I thought this was just a sweet love story until I came upon a timeless story question all Christian women face.
The Still of the Night by Kristen Heitzman—A touching story about a man known as the “success guru” who finds solutions for corporations, but the one life he can’t set straight is his own.
The Husband Tree by Mary Connealy—who wouldn’t love cowboys with comedy?
Lakeside Reunion by our own Lisa Jordan—A woman jilted by a cop five years ago is pulled over for a broken taillight as she returns to town.
Wish You Were Here by our own Beth Vogt—Can kissing the wrong guy lead to Mr. Right?
Primal by Mark Batterson—if there was only one book I could recommend, it would be this one.
Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall—This true story reads like a novel and takes place in the town where I was born.
Fire in Fiction by Donald Mass—Reading it once isn’t enough
Soulprint by Mark Batterson—Few people discover the God-given identity that makes them unlike anyone else—our soul print.
Now it’s your turn. What are some of your favorite books? I’d like to put them on my shelf!
