  1. I have not heard of most of your books, thanks for sharing! I will have to look into them!

    Blessings, Hugs & Happy Reading,
    Tiany

  2. I’m behind with Brian Jacques…
    So far the The Nine Tailors is my favorite Sayers…
    Happy Fall reading.

  3. I love the Dearest Dorthy series. I have seen Peace Like a River on several lists so I am going to add it to mine and get it from the library. I have also seen The Kite Runner on many lists … I want too but I like to be uplifted not depressed at the end of a book. 🙂

  4. Your disclaimer made me laugh! Is that the new book by Jan Karon?

  5. Looks like a good list! Dorothy Sayers is on my “I really need to read her books” list… just haven’t gotten around to it yet! Thanks for joining the challenge.

  6. After I read “Peace Like a River”, I decided it needed to go on my Top 5 All-time Favorites list! It was THAT good! I hope you love it! He really knows how to write! I’ll be watching to see if you post a review of that one! Good luck, happy reading, and happy fall!

  7. Great list. I am so looking forward to the newest Father Tim novel! You will love Get Out of That Pit! It was life changing for me!

  8. LOL I love your disclaimer, I should have added that to mine……..I know I’ll be changing mine or adding more to it.

    Great list, I love Jan Karon 🙂

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am excited that someone stopped by who knows what Slava Bogu means!

    I like your disclaimer. I need to add it to mine. 🙂

    Happy Reading.

  10. Oh, and I meant to add that I really enjoyed looking through some of your photos.

  11. A Thousand Splendid Suns and Peace Like a River are both on my to-be-read list; I’ll be interested to find out what you think. I’ll also be looking forward to your review of Home to Holly Springs. Happy reading!

  12. Lana G!,

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I see we have a couple similar titles. I’m sure I’m destined to get hooked on Mitford, which means I have quite a few books to add to my list at some point!

  13. Wow, Dorothy Sayers – I have read all of them being a teenager and I keep re-reading them at least once a year. I am so in love with that Lord Peter 🙂

    Hey, I am a frequent flyer, too 🙂

    Thanks for saying ‘hi’ at my blog and have a great reading time,
    Helen

  14. Thanks for adding my latest (#6 in the series) “Dearest Dorothy” book to your list! (www.dearestdorothy.com)

    *I read Dorothy Sayers’s “The Mind of The Maker” (nonfiction) WOW! LOVED it.

    *”Peace Like a River” is worthy of ANYONE’S list. Brilliant!

    Have you read “Gilead” by Marilyn Robinson? That book was SO richly dense, I started using it as a devotional. I’d slowly read until I simply HAD to stop and prayerfully think about something that was said. Wonderful.

    Happy Fall Reading!

    Happy writing, looking forward to more Dorothy books!

  18. Reading your list reminded me of books I forgot to add to mine:-) HAHA!! I’m so excited about all the reading we’re all going to do…now if I could just hire someone to clean my house for the Fall….LOL!!

  28. Looks good! Thanks for the comments. We are really enjoying HP, as we have all of them. I also think Miss Julia rocks and I LOVE the #1 Detective Agency books. Did you know the #1 Ladies’ Detective Agency is going to be made into a movie? I’m so excited! Have you read the “Yada Yada Prayer Group” books? If you like Sisterchicks, you’ll love these too. 😀

  29. Great list! I look forward to seeing what others’ thoughts are on A Thousand Splendid Suns and Peace Like a River. A lot of us have those on our lists!

  30. Thanks for stopping by!

    I got to go to the Get Out Of That Pit simulcast at a church nearby. It was awesome! I’m sure you’ll enjoy the book and get a lot out of it!

  31. I have read Get Out of That Pit–it is a wonderful book. I am asking for the Home to Holly Springs book for Christmas–it will have to be on my Winter reading list. Thanks for stopping by. I may add Peace Like a River since everyone else seems to be reading it.

  32. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I’ve only heard of a couple of the books on your list!
