Top 25 Authors of 2018





This was a VERY difficult list to create… first, I began gathering the names of all my favorite authors. After re-checking my bookcases and bookshelf blog, I found that I have well over 100 names! Now, this might not sound like a lot to some of you, but I was astounded that I had that many favorite authors – those whom I refuse to part with their books!

I began paring down… whew, that was rough! What I really wanted to do was to name them all — but that seemed to defeat the purpose of listing the TOP chosen few.

I tried — I really did — and I still didn’t get everyone on the list that I hoped to!

So… without further adieu.

Here’s my personal list of the TOP TWENTY-FIVE AUTHORS for 2019:

   Jennifer Beckstrand    Vannetta Chapman    Valerie Comer    Rachel L. Miller

   Dana Mentink    JC Morrows    Macy Morrows    Tricia Goyer    Ruth Logan Herne

   Jean C. Gordon    Barbara Cameron    Suzanne Woods Fisher    Charlotte Hubbard 

   Ruth Reid    Shelley Shepard Gray    Molly Jebber    Kathy Fuller    Kelly Irvin

   Lilian Jackson Braun    Emma Miller   Amos Wyse    Laura J. Marshall    

   Grace Livingston Hill    Philip Gulley    Jan Karon


God bless you!

Donna Reads… favorite titles!

I’m sure I’ll leave out many, but want to list a few favorite titles on my first day of blogging!

Growing up, my favorite books were the Nancy Drew series. My sister would buy them for me on every occasion. Years later, just before getting divorced, I lost them. Lately I’ve begun collecting them again for my grandchildren.

Another big favorite were the Grace Livingston Hill series. I still have most of these… and I’ve added to my collection over the years. It’s hard to believe Ms. Hill began writing (and publishing) her books almost 100 years ago!

When my children were young, another favorite author was Janette Oke. I have most of her books, which I much prefer over the movies adapted from her books.

Several years ago, I discovered the Father Tim / Mitford series by Jan Karon. These are still a favorite series. Every 2-3 years, I pull them out and read them again… starting with the first and not stopping til I’ve read the newest one!

Now it’s time to start writing reviews…
