Black Friday Sale ~ Indie Christian Books

Like most other bookworms, great books make their way onto my "things I'm thankful for" list every year. It's hard to choose favorites, but I went ahead and picked five books I read in 2015 and am thankful for.
  1. Malachi (yes, I'm referring to the book of the Bible) ~ ~  I read this recently and loved it! It's now one of my favorite Old Testament books. :) We can never be thankful enough for God's Holy Word. 
  2. Another Homecoming, by Jannette Oke ~ ~  Another Homecoming was the first book I'd read by this well-known author, though I'd quickly fallen in love with the Love Comes Softly movies. I can definitely say this book is a favorite! I'm thankful for this book because now I have a new author to look for more good books by. :) 
  3. The Battle Plan of Prayer, by Stephen and Alex Kendrick ~ ~ I recently requested this book as a read & review from the publisher. Already it has helped me so much and I'm thankful. (There will be a full review posted on Chosen Vessels after I've finished reading this book.) 
  4. A Memory Between Us, by Sarah Sundin ~ ~ I'm so very thankful that I found this book. Not only is it an amazing book from a wonderful set, but I've found (yet another) new favorite author. :) 
  5. Avery's Battlefield & Avery's Crossroad, by Deanna K. Klingel ~ ~ (I know, I know. That's two books and not just one, but how could I leave either one of them out?) I love these two books so much. I go on and on about it all day, but I won't. ;) My mom got these for my brother several years ago but he doesn't really enjoy reading. I read them...and loved them! They're so, so good. They're actually books for boys, I guess, but I really liked them and now they've taken up residence on my bookshelf. ;D 
I don't know about you, but I'm looking forward to another great year of reading! Speaking of more reading, here's one more thing to be grateful for. Books on sale!
