My Favourite Books - The Letter C

Caddie Woodlawn & Caddie Woodlawn's Family by Carol Ryrie Brink - If you liked Laura Ingalls Wilder's series, you will love Caddie Woodlawn. Definitely a must for Little House on the Prairie fans! And recommended for everyone else, of course.

Canadian West Series by Janette Oke - This is like the Love Comes Softly Series, but for Canadians.  I prefer the Love Comes Softly books, but these are also enjoyable.

The Canterville Ghost by Oscar Wilde - This has some very amusing parts in it and is overall a wonderful read. The whole idea of a stuffy old British ghost having to put up with down to earth Americans who just won't be scared is the perfect basis for an entertaining story.

Castaways of the Flying Dutchman Series - As of yet there are three books in this series, all of them definitely worth your time. Very highly recommended! Of course, I was always fascinated with the story of the Flying Dutchman, but this spin-off is like nothing I have ever read before, and probably nothing like what you will expect.

Charlotte's Web by E. B. White - A classic. Endearing pig and lovable spider. What a combination!

Cheaper by the Dozen by Frank B. Gilbreth, Jr. & Ernestine Gilbreth Carey - Packed with humor from front cover to back. You simply cannot read this with a straight face.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens - Superb...but then you probably already know that.

Chronicles of Avonlea & Further Chronicles of Avonlea by L. M. Montgomery - This collection of stories is filled with tales of sweetness, romance, humor and those that touch your heart. Another one that I had to add to my bookshelves.

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis - Words fail me. C. S. Lewis is legendary, and for a reason!

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas - This was good to read once, but I found it extremely sad. However, there is a bit of a good ending. You will close this read wiser or at least with something to think about.

The Corfu Trilogy by Gerald Durrell - Of all his books, this is my favourite! Especially the first book in this series. The others have some things I wish he'd left out, for example a grotesque old sailor...but such a good read! His family and experiences will not fail to amuse you.

The Cricket in Times Square by George Selden - The touching story of a cricket with a tremendous gift and a longing for his home. A childhood favourite.

Cue for Treason by Geoffrey Trease - This was exciting and interesting at the same time. It is set in Elizabethan England, at the same time as Shakespeare and follows the adventures of a young lad. It's very exciting...even if you don't like history.
