I Was Tagged!

I got tagged by here it goes...

Who is your favorite author and why? Probably Elizabeth George. I've read several of her studies for teens, including "A Young Women After God's Own Heart," "A Young Women's Call to Prayer," and "A Young Women's Walk With God." I loved them all!! Not only are these books challenging, but they also talk about issues and concepts in a tactful, God-honoring way. As far as I can remember, they don't include any unnecessary or disturbing details (unfortunately, my mom and I have discovered that many Christian studies for teens do). If you want to check these books out, click here.

Who was your first favorite author and why? I really liked L.M Montgomery. I read several of the Anne of Green Gables book, as well as the Emily series, and I LOVED them all! Oh, and I loved Louisa May Alcott; I've read "Little Women", "Little Men", and...I think I read either "Old Fashioned Girl" or "Eight Cousins." I really liked Patricia Reilly Giff as well. She wrote "Pictures of Hollis Woods," "Nory Ryan's Song," "Maggie's Door," and many others. Her books are so interesting and are usually historical. "Nory Ryan's Song" and "Maggie's Door" took place during the Irish Potato famine and really fascinated me.

Oh yeah...I was supposed to list one author...

Who is the most recent addition to your favorite authors and why? Well, I haven't really read "Do Hard Things" yet, but I glanced through parts of it, and I already know that the Harris brothers are soon to be on my "Fave authors" list! They present such a powerful and unique message, both in their book (I've heard!) and on their blog.
OK, that was fun! Now...who shall be the next victims??? :-)

I tag Laney, Arya, Christine, Liz, and my mom.

This is a neat tag! I really enjoyed reading it!

I don't think I could say who my favorite author is. I have so many that are so good!

I do think that LMM was my first favorite though. I think Anne of Green Gables was the first book series I read.

I would say my new favorite is Chris Walley. He wrote The Lamb Among Stars Series. It is so awesome!

Thanks for coming by! Sorry I don't stop by often. :(

Prayers and Blessings to you!
Miss Amanda

Okay, I'm going to sound really dumb now, but what does it mean to be tagged? From what I see here, someone asked you a bunch of questions. Is that what it is?

I'd appreciate any explanation. Thanks!
