Lynae's booklist

You know, I am a typical bookworm. If I receive a book, I read like heck until I finish it. In between Christmas and my birthday I usually read school books, but in the Summer I can read whatever strikes my fancy. So far this year I have read:

  • Lost Queen of Egypt; an interesting fiction book about King Tutankhamen's wife.
  • Hamlet; Although Shakespeare's works are long and rather boring, I found this book rather interesting.
  • The Lost Prince; I don't remember much about this book, but I know I enjoyed it and found it rather easy to read.
  • Watership Down; At first this book seemed very boring but by the end I wanted to read it again. It's about a bunch of rabbits who experience the differences between living in the wild and being raised for meat.
  • Black Ships Before Troy; This is a book about the basics of the Trojan war. Its information is taken from Homer's writings.
  • Beautiful Girlhood; The title says it all. This book is a guide for godly young women that covers everything from apparel to relationships. I read it every year.
  • The Cricket on the Hearth; I didn't really understand this book until I finished it, but it was very good and held my attention well.
  • Romeo and Juliet; The tragic story of two lovers whose parents hate each other. Another of Shakespeare's writings.
  • Kenilworth; Written by Sir Walter Scott, this one is probably my favorite book from c.1600 A.D.
  • The Hiding Place; An amazing story about the faith that Corrie Ten Boom had in Christ during WW2.
  • Penrod and Sam; A fun story about two young boys trying to have fun during the early 20th century.
  • Love Comes Softly, Love's Enduring Promise, and Love's Long Journey; What can I say about these? If you've read them, you know how wonderful they are, If you haven't, You're missing out. I'm waiting for Love's Abiding Joy.
  • Never Miss a Sunset; The true story of a hardworking 13 year old girl who has 9 brothers and sisters and is left with the responsibility of taking care of them when their mother's sick.
  • Tisha; The true love story of 19 year old Anne Hobbs who becomes a schoolteacher in Alaska in the 1920s. I found this story very interesting.


  1. Hi HI Hiii! I'm back on-line. Whoooopie!

    You are one incredible reader! Wow. Because of my short attention span, *cough sputter lol* all my reading these days of actual BOOKS is done by audio.

    I've missed you and hope that you are having a most excellent summertime. :) I wish we could walk through our gardens with one another and see what each other is growing/harvesting/canning, etc.

    Have a great week, hugs, Robin

  2. Lynae,

    I'm glad you read "The Hiding Place." What an incredible story of how faith in the Lord can keep you through absolutely anything.

    I'm glad you have time to read so many wonderful books.
