My Top 10 Favorite Books

My Top 10 Favorite Books

Awhile ago, two friends, Tracy and Mary, asked me to participate in a Facebook meme about my top 10 favorite books. It was so long ago that I can’t find the post or even remember in which month they tagged me to play along. I searched and searched for it, but came up empty-handed!

But I do remember promising I would share my list!

So, while this is very tardy, and probably pretty incomplete, as I’m sure I’m forgetting some good books, here is a list of my top 10 favorite books … in no particular order.

Better late than never, right?!

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
2. Father Elijah by Michael D. O’Brien
3. Story of a Soul by St. Therese of Liseux
4. Left to Tell by Immaculate Ilibagiza
5. 33 Days to Morning Glory by Fr. Michael Gaitley
6. Consoling the Heart of Jesus by Fr. Michael Gaitley
7. Blessed, Beautiful and Bodacious by Pat Gohn
8. The Nesting Place by Myquilyn Smith
9. Hannah Coulter by Wendell Berry
10. The Grace of Yes by Lisa Hendey

  1. My favorites are: The Bible, The 4:8 Principle, Searching for and Maintaining Peace–actually any book by Fr Jacques Philippe, Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence.

    As you can tell, I'm not a fiction reader. I can get too emotionally involved in fiction–good or bad emotions–so I stick to non fiction.

    1. I have heard you mention "The 4:8 Principle" before, and I have meant to look it up. I have read parts of "Interior Freedom" by Fr. Jacques Philippe, and I have his book about St. Therese … My husband and I heard him give a talk about a year or so ago at a neighboring parish. He was wonderful (even through his French interpreter). His message was so relevant, so profound, yet so simple.

  2. 33 days to Morning Glory made a significant change in my life! I would like to know what the 4:8 principle is and who the author is. peace to you, thank you fellow Catholic, I am mom of 5; 9-18 years, 4 boys 1 girl , wife of David for 22 years , and cat mom to one girl cat.

    1. Hi Terri, “The 4:8 Principle: The Secret to a Joy-Filled Life” is by Tommy Newberry. I have never read it, but Jenny raves about it … Yes, “33 Days” made a significant impact in my life, too. And it is so nice to “meet” another Catholic mom! I hope you will stop by again. God bless!
