About me: Just someone who likes reading and sharing what she reads with others. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I've pretty much have the books organized, however many of them still need comments/descriptions. I hope to do that somewhat soon, but overall, all of the books are really good reads.
Reading Interests: I'm willing to try just about anything once.

bookworm283's Book Lists
Katie Weldon Series (3 titles)
The Katie Weldon series is a spin off from the Christy Miller Series. The books start after Christy's wedding while Katie is still in college, and run through her college graduation and beyond. If you loved the Christy Miller series, you will definitely like learning what her best friend has been up too!
Lauraine Snelling Series (3 titles)
Book list for Snelling's books that are not about Blessing North Dakota and its residents. If you are interested in those, please see my other list.
Christy and Todd Series (8 titles)
Christy and Todd series from Robin Jones Gunn. It is a great Christian girl series and I highly recommend it. I'm currently working on reading my way through the series. There are 12 books in the series and I will add them as I finish them, so please check back!
Lauraine Snelling Blessing Series (13 titles)
Lauraine Snelling has several series out that are very good historical fiction. They all interconnect and are sure to keep one entertained. The three series listed below are all about Blessing North Dakota and its residents. She has several other series and books that are not about North Dakota as well.
Sci-Fi/Fantasy Series (4 titles)
I'm not too much into science fiction or fantasy, however there have been a few books I enjoy. This list is for series in particular.

- I read this book and couldn’t put it down! It is really great. It is about a girl named Talley, her friends Peris, and Shay, as well as the Smokies she meets. It is set in the future, so it has many inventions, such as hoverboards, that we don’t have, but portrays the characters in a realistic way. The ending will surprise you.   posted Dec 6, 2008 at 12:06PM
