My Favourite Books - The Letter L

The Light Princess by George MacDonald - I first discovered this when I was searching hungrily for more fairytales. It is very much a fairytale, very different from any other fairytale I have ever read, and yet so familiar I could have sworn I'd read it before. It's amazing and wonderful and beautiful and I love it!

Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder - Oh, I can't tell you how much I enjoy these! They're so interesting and sweet! Highly recommended.

Little Pilgrim's Progress by Helen L. Taylor - My siblings and I grew up on this little book. My favourite is Christian's adventure.

A Little Princess by Frances Hodgson Burnett - Sara is such a sweet little girl. Throughout all her troubles, she endeavors to make her father proud of her by being a true princess. “Whatever comes,” she said, “cannot alter one thing. If I am a princess in rags and tatters, I can be a princess inside. It would be easy to be a princess if I were dressed in a cloth of gold, but it is more of a triumph to be one all the time when no one knows it.”

The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge - I've never read anything like this fairytaleish story. It captured me right away and I immediately procured myself a copy.

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott - This should be on everyone's imperative reading list. It is full to the brim with humour, love, friendship, troubles, and family values. It is also one of those books that makes me wonder why I even try can I possibly write anything half as good as this?!

The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien - My dad used to read these aloud to us after dinner sometimes, so although I have never actually read the whole of all the books (which I am working on right now, as a matter of fact) I know them very well. They are very old and very dear friends.

The Lost Princess by George MacDonald - This story has a moral and is very touching. It is about two girls, born on the same day and very similar in appearance, but very different in personality. This book will make you think.

Love Comes Softly Series by Janette Oke - I had a Janette Oke craze a few years ago, and this is the result. I really liked this series, especially the very first and very last books.
