Hello, everyone! Today is not Friday. It is Thursday. (That was just as reminder for myself, because I’ve been having trouble remembering what day it is. 😛 )
Do you know what this means?
- Today is the 21st of June, the first day of summer! Happy Summer! Have a popsicle!!
- This is the fourth day of blog tour, wow! 😀
- Tomorrow is the 22nd of June, release day for Kiera! One more dawn, one more day, one day mooooorrrreee!
Today, my characters decided they want to recommend books to you which is pretty cool actually.
Kiera’s Top Three Books
Destiny and Kiera passed this series back and forth so much as teenagers that their copies are probably in tatters. 😉 It’s time to buy new copies online so Kiera can share them with Jade someday… Read my review of Princess Academy here.
This is an unexpected new favorite for Kiera. Loaned to her by a good friend, she wasn’t expecting to enjoy this dark fairytale so much. It was the strong, beautiful allegory that did it for her (and me too). Read my review here.
Destiny’s Top Two Books (And One Movie)
This novella is super cute and just short enough to read while waiting for a cow to give birth. It’s really darling. ❤ Read my review of Three Little Words here.
Destiny is brilliant at solving mysteries, so reading them is one of her extra-happy-favorite-things. No matter how many more amazing detective novels are published every year, she’ll still return to Mr. Holmes as her absolute favorite. (I’m curious, do you think she’s more of a Holmes or a Watson? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.) Don’t ask which book/story is her favorite because they all are. Except for those two really creepy ones…
Admittedly, farm life is a bit busy for reading, so movies and TV shows are the next best thing. This movie is kinda cheesy and old, but it’s darling and lovable and cheerful and everything. ❤ There are a couple content problems with it of course, but Destiny knows exactly what to skip and where to mute. 😉
Jade’s Top Three Books
This book has quite a few objects to count, name, and love plus KITTENS! Definitely a Jade favorite. 😉
It’s silly, rhymes, and there is also a cat in this one… See a theme here? XD
It’s also her other favorite book, because when a kid likes a book, you get to read it until you have it memorized. 😛
Brennan’s Top Three Books
This is likely Brennan’s all-time favorite book. When he first grabbed it off his family’s shelf, he thought he was reading a cheesy fantasy romance so he could make fun of it. And then it blew him away and was actually important to his spiritual walk. He re-reads the rest of the series every once in a while. (This is actually the only one of these books I’ve read, but I’d like to try some of the others sometime.)
This little book chronicles the life of a man who gave everything he had–and it wasn’t much because of ill-health and things–to God, and God used him in a big way. Inspiring to Brennan. 😉
This is one of those weird old classics they make you read in school and some people end up liking. Brennan is one of those people. 😉 Ironically, he read a version censored for language, but that didn’t affect the story any. It’s was still intriguing, thought-provoking, and weird.
So, there you are! These are the books that would be my characters’ favorites. 😉 I’ve read all of these (and the picture books at least five times each). Have you read any of them? What did you think?
