I've never been crazy for fiction books. But in the last year, despite having a fiction-book anti-attitude, I read three of them that were so good they are worth sharing: 1) The Shack by William P. Young 2) The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry & 3) Lineage of Grace by Francine Rivers.  I'm a believer that in order to keep a mind fresh & keep the wheels spinnin' on all cylinders, I need to mix it up with book genres. So that's why I forced these fiction books down. I'd love to know if you have any fiction book recommendations? Leave a comment, holla!

Anything by Karen Kingsbury. She is awesome. I cannot put her books down when I get them. I have been known to stay up until 2:00am reading her books because I don't want to walk away from the story.

HP - You are reading the wrong fiction,girl. Too much heavy stuff. Check out some fun chick-lit. It's funny, light and just the escape those of us with crazy lives need! The library is chock-full of it. No life-altering agendas in a single one... just a good get-away. I can send you a list of some of my favs... just text me. Or better yet, stop by our STBX on 136th and say 'HI'.

Hey Heather:

I'm a fiction writer so I'm totally partial. I actually only read Christian fiction, because I need for my stories to have a point. I would like to suggest the Neta Jackson series the yadda-yadda prayer group. I have tons of others but I would have to be at home looking at my shelf. If you need more suggestions FB me!

I'm a fiction freak, in fact, I have problems reading anything that is not fiction. I wish I could be a little more cerebral in that way, but I just love escaping into something that takes me away to another world sometimes. C.S. Lewis has great fiction. Also, the Time Traveler's Wive is an awesome book, it's well written and will stay with you a long time afterword. Also, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns are great books but will show you how ugly the world can be, so be prepared for heartbreak. THe Shack is one of my all time favorites...what a creative and cool way to look at Father.
