NWR- Book suggestions

Hey ladies! So I got a Barnes and Noble gift card for Christmas (yippee!) and I want to use it to buy books to read for fun for once instead of my usual school books. I've noticed that we seem to have a lot of readers in this group and everyone seemed to have great suggestions in the past (can't find the posts though!). I was wondering if you ladies had any suggestions for me for a great book to read that you loved (Christian/spiritual or not). I'm open to anything! Thanks!!

    If you love historical fiction, check out Francine Rivers' books.  I love ALL of them.

    Anything really. Lately it's been a lot of "real-life" stories or inspirational stories, etc. I would love to find a great women's devotional/bible study as well. But I like anything really.

    Spiritual ones that I've liked is Good and Beautiful God, The Praying Life, Bondage Breaker.

    Hope you find something you like!

    I have to agree with the Hunger Games.  I read the whole trilogy twice in one week.  I think I'm obsessed, lol.

    [QUOTE] The next book on my shelf to be read is <strong>Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo</strong> (it's the one where the little boy actually died and came back to life to tell about Heaven. True story).

    So ironic!! I actually ordered that book as I was looking around for choices. It looks amazing!

    I'm a voracious reader and am blessed enough to review books for a few Christian publishers-- I actually went and for my New Year's "thing" signed up for a few more publishers, it's only been two before this.  It's so fun! I get books for free in exchange for reviewing them. If you type in "book reviews" on my blog you can read any of them.

    Aside from those, I also really love scifi, so I like Robert Jordan, Gayle Greeno, and others. I have recently been reviewing Amish fiction, which I find I like, especially Cindy Woodsmall. I've always like Regency romance/historical fiction.  As far as spiritual things, my favorite book of ALL TIME is God Calling. 

    I just got a Nook for Christmas so I've been diving into books. I downloaded a lot of George MacDonald (he's C.S Lewis's inspiration).
