Top Ten Books I'd Quickly Save If My House Was Going To Be Abducted By Aliens

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted every Tuesday by The Broke and the Bookish.

***

So, it's been a month of Sundays since I participated in this meme, but these week's topic just screamed "participation"...if ya know what I mean.  *wink*  Now, I don't believe in aliens or anything, but this list would work for just about any sort of disaster.  At least I can keep myself organized should the time come that I might actually need it!  :o)

Enjoy!

***


Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers - favorite book of all time...period.  No way the aliens are taking this one, especially considering I've got one of the early versions of the book and not a reprint.


Stealing Adda by Tamara Leigh - Quite possibly the funniest book I've ever read!  Gotta have my laughs during that alien house abduction, ya know...


Waterfall by Lisa Bergren - I'm so behind the times on reading the rest of this series, but this one book made enough of a lasting impression that I'd have to keep it.


A Passion Most Pure by Julie Lessman - Julie's first book and her best book, in my opinion.  Not that her other ones aren't great, of course, but I'll never forget how I felt after I had my first taste of her passionate romantic fiction.


To Die For by Sandra Byrd - I'll be singing this book's praises until the day I die.  So, it's no wonder that this one would make the list, as well as a second book by Sandra listed next.


Let Them Eat Cake by Sandra Byrd - Sandra's first adult novel was a smash hit, and had my sweet tooth working overtime!


Heiress by Susan May Warren - Currently, this book is out on loan, so I wouldn't be able to save it from my house in the technical sense of the word.  But if it was here, rest assured it'd be going with me.  :o)


June Bug by Chris Fabry - This book turned me into a Chris Fabry fan overnight, and I've recommended this particular book to countless people. 


For Time and Eternity by Allison Pittman - I was already a fan of Allison's books before reading this one, but she achieved "favorite author" status in a flash after writing this breathtaking story!


Predator by Terri Blackstock - In spite of the fact that we may not even have social networks if there was an alien house abduction, I would still have to take this book with me.  All of Terri's books are great, but this one is probably her best stand-alone suspense novel.

So, those are my Top Ten this week!  What about you?  I just know that you're bound to have at least one or two (maybe ten) books that you'd grab in a flash if your house was going to be abducted by aliens.  :o)

  1. Great list! I'm a big fan of some of those books. Others are on my list to read. Thanks for sharing. I think I would have a hard time limiting it to ten books. Good thing I could grab my Kindle. lol

  5. Oh...never mind... They discontinued Let Them Eat Cake at that price. :(

    I am really curious about that series, though!

  7. OH. MY. GOSH! I love Julie Lessman's novels. I still haven't read her "spin-off" series yet about the brothers and younger sister, Katie (I think?) but her original series was lovely. And, Heiress, I don't know what else I can say about that one... it was breathtaking and heartbreaking all at once: I couldn't put the book down, and that was the first time that had happened in a loooong time. =)
