It's Faith 'n Fiction Saturday!

First, I just want to say that I am honored that Amy of My Friend Amy's blog gave my novel, It's Not About Me, and honorable mention on her top fiction for 2008 list! Whoo hoo! I like that.

Here is the deal...

Today's topic is meant to wrap up the year... What are your favorite Christian fiction books that you read this year? You can compile your list anyway you like, by genre, ranking, or a favorite book of each month. Be as creative as you like the only requirements are that you read the books this year and that they are Christian fiction.


Okay, for the year 2008 these 10 novels made me go ahhhh.... or they made me think about the story after I closed the book, or I wanted to call a friend to talk about the story after I finished reading it. (Had to add two more! I read them after I posted this!)

A Constant Heart by Siri Mitchell
Until We Reach Home by Lynn Austin
A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman
Lady of Milkweed Manor by Julie Klassen
Havah by Tosca Lee
Blue Heart Blessed by Susan Meissner
Beyond the Night by Marlo Schalesky
Healing Stones by Nancy Rue
Dogwoodby Chris Fabry
When the Soul Mends by Cindy Woodsmall

Bonus books are:
Gallimore by Michelle Griep
Sweetwater Gap by Denise Hunter

And these are 5 stories I am pretty sure would've made me go ahhhh... if I'd had the time to read them.

The Convenient Groom by Denise Hunter
The Shape of Mercy by Susan Meissner
In the Shadow of the Sun King by Golden Keyes Parsons
Love Starts with Elle by Rachel Hauck
The Big Picture by Jenny B. Jones

So what's your story? Give me your list by posting a comment!
