I ♥ Thursday {No. 9} ~ Book Favorites

A few weeks ago, we had a reader ask what our favorite books are. We decided to share them with you today for I ♥ Thursday, because we really love these books!


Aww, good o'l Huck' and Tom... I love these books! I am sure you all know they both are by Mark Twain. They are so lively and full of adventure!

The Fellowship of the Ring is wonderfully written.
Once I got started on it, it was hard for me to put it down! I have yet to read the rest of the series and I can't wait!

The Chronicles of Narnia is absolutely beautiful!
The words of C.S. Lewis are so strong and express love and courage.

A Tale of Two Cities, another great classic.
 I just recently read Redwall and though it may not be as advanced as some of the books I read, it still captivated me.


Okay, so obviously I like mice books...
And adventure books... And I love Richard Peck...

Another great book by Richard Peck.

I am sure you have heard of this and probably watched the movie, but the movie doesn't do it justice! ;)

I really like Kate DiCamillo, 
but I have only read a couple of her books....


I'm sure you have heard of Treasure Island, but it really is my favorite pirate book, full of scally wags and mutiny! Arrrgh!
 Macbeth, a Shakespearean novel.

A science experiment gone wrong...

What can I say, Agatha Christie an awesome mystery writer!    
I love each of the Hermux Tantamoq Adventures. They are full of action and mystery, with a bit of humor mixed in.
#1 Time Stops for No Mouse

#2 The Sands of Time

#3 No Time Like Show Time

#4 A Time To Smell The Roses

A Series of Unfortunate Events.
This series is pretty old, I read it through elementary school, but I would love to re-read it! It's on the darker side, but if you want an intense thriller/action series, this is the one for you!

I love all of Brian Selznick's books, his illustrations really make his books come to life. You might recognize this book, it was the inspiration for the movie Hugo.

I hope you enjoyed seeing each of our Top 10 Favorite Books! Have you read any of these books, or know the authors?

Have a blessed Thursday,


  1. Thanks so much for this! I have read and loved almost every book on this list- literally! We are so much in common, I had a feeling our favorite books would be too! And I was correct.
    Tibi Gratias Ago!


    1. That's Amazing! They are all great books!
      Libenter Hoc Facio!

    2. Hehe! My foreign languages serve me well:) Thanks for following me (or I guess I should say us;))! In response to Hagen's question, I own a Nikon D5100 & a 55-200 55-200mm lens. Oh, and by the way, I thought I would inform you (if you were unaware if it previously) that there are two sequels to Tom Sawyer: Tom Sawyer Abroad & Tom Sawyer Detective!


  2. Hi, Hagen! I've read all of your favorite books and I love them too!! <3 And I've also read some of Layla's. :)

    1. Hi, Una! That's cool! I thought you would like this post since you write story's and all. :)
      Hagen <3

  3. Oh, thanks for doing this, you two! I've only read The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia books, Redwall, and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. But I'm going to put the rest on my hugely long reading list! :)

    1. You are so welcome! We enjoyed doing this, but after we posted it, we remembered a whole bunch of other books we should have posted! :)
      Layla&Hagen <3

    2. Haha, sounds familiar :) I love it how there's this group of girls--most of the time homeschool Christian girls--that just love books and reading and love talking about it. So funny and awesome.

      Hagen, thank you for following my blog! I hope you like it. And I would love to have you two guest post :)

  4. Layla, what was the series? It was the 9th picture

    1. Hello Aleni,
      Oh, I'm so sorry! It's called The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. Thank you for pointing that out!
      Blessings, Layla

    2. Its fine, just wondering :) Thanks!
