9. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
Slide 5 of 5
This fantasy novel by C.S. Lewis is the first of the Chronicles of Narnia series. I must admit to have only read this one so far, but it definitely sparked my imagination and my hunger for more. I love a good series where I know more adventures lay ahead!
This book describes the adventures of four brothers and sisters as they discover new lands and talking animals through the portal of a wardrobe. The land of Narnia is being ruled by a White Witch that has turned it into a never-ending winter. The symbolism, love, and bravery found in the characters, especially of Aslan, is sure to warm your heart and nourish your spirit. I am ready for more in this series and look forward to digging into it as the season continues.
10. Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
I grew up watching Little House on the Prairie on television so, of course, anything that sparks memories of Michael Landon, snow drifts, play dolls, and winter fiddle playing by a cozy fire is a wonderful book selection for fall! This is the first book of the series by Laura Ingalls Wilder that introduces us to the Ingalls family. There is Ma, Pa, Mary, Laura, and Carrie.
Just by reading this book and immersing myself into the words of Wilder, I can taste the newly-churned butter, hear the howling wolves at night, and feel the draft of cool winter air escape through the closing front door. This book series is a real treat for any age and sure to warm your heart and nourish your spirit as well.
