In this season between Christmas and the arrival of Spring, it’s easy to fall into slumps of all sorts. I’m linking to Top 5 Wednesday (#T5W) on Goodreads to share five books to get you out of a slump. My intention was to do a short video, but it’s been a long day. It’s late. And I’m just not up for the demands of video. So, a blog post it is. All of these books are highly recommended whether you’re slumping or not.
- The Well by Stephanie Landsem This book earned its placed on the list for how it touched my heart and my soul, demonstrating the power of good fiction to affect mind, body, and spirit. Nothing is more powerful, in my opinion, than the demonstration of self-sacrificial love such as you’ll discover in The Well.
- Intermission by Serena Chase Intermission earned its place here for much the same reasons as The Well. It’s another story that moved me in so many good ways, demonstrating what authentic love looks like in a framework that is obedient to God above all else.
- The Gifting by K.E. Ganshert A page-turner with meaning and depth, this series, starting with The Gifting, delivers the thrills of an exciting story with the depth necessary for meaningful reflection. I bet you can’t read just one book in this series.
- Chasing Liberty by Theresa Linden Ditto what I wrote for The Gifting. Chasing Liberty is imaginative and challenging, immersing you in a world so real you won’t want to escape until you’ve consumed the entire trilogy.
- The Memoirs of Jane E, Friendless Orphan by Erin McCole Cupp The mastery, beauty, and magic of the classics belong on any slump-breaking list. The Memoirs of Jane E (Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte) is an expert twist on a classic that brings depth and light to a literary treasure.
