Dear me, did I forget to mention that there is a big prize you can win on Read Another Page? As in you could win a few paperback books? Check it you here.

As you can see I have a lot of books in my room

As a writer, books have become even dearer to me. Today, I would like to share some old favorites and then allow you a chance to win a digital copy of one of my books, you get to chose which one.

Top Five Favorite Middle Grade: 
In Grandmother’s Attic: I read and reread this series over and over as a kid. I still think it is about the best thing out there.
Home on Stony Creek: Between the time I was 11 and sixteen, I reread this series about five times. It combined my love of history, faith, and stories into one.
Looking for a Home: This series is not your typical orphan story about they trying to do everything on their own. Based on a true story, this story is a wonderful story of children finding a family and adventure.
The Boxcar Children: This series was so much fun as a kid. I loved the how the siblings looked out for each other and survived. The writing was solid and engaging. It was one of the few secular series that I liked as a kid.
Patty Fairfield: I am going to let you in on a little secret; I still love reading Middle Grade books. This is a recent discovery of mine that I love.

Top Five Favorite Children:
All the Places to Love: This book is beautifully illustrated and made for parents to read to kids. Mom read it to me all the time. I loved it and read it to my younger siblings when I was old enough.
Tell Me the Secrets: Dad read this book to us when we were younger. Wow, these stories are powerful and hard, but the lessons stuck with me. The final story had us all crying, but left us with joy and hope.
I’ll Love You Forever: This is a sweet story of the love between a mother and child. This was my youngest sisters favorite so I have many fond memories.
The Story Bought Doll: As a girl who loved dolls, this book was one I loved to look at long before I could read. The pictures always drew me in and I liked the story too'
Amelia Bedilia: As someone who loved words from an early age, this story was a hit. I still love the play on words.

Just for those of you who have showed up today, I would like to offer you a digital book of your choice. Enter to win and the choice is yours of all my published works.

  1. Oh, I've been looking for books for my little sisters - I'll have to check those out! Thanks!

    BTW, why does the rafflecopter not allow me to enter...? It says it is already over...

  2. What? This is the 3rd blog listing "Grandma's Attic"! :) (I haven't been to the other 3 yet.) Oh, "Amelia Bedilia" has been a favorite for years. Now my nieces and nephews are loving them. "The Store-Bought Doll"! That could have easily been in my Top 5 except I ran out of room. :P

    And I know what book of yours I would pick if I were allowed in the giveaway. ;) I'd pick your newest "Kate's Files" book. :) But don't enter me.

    1. That is because that book is amazing. There were so many books I wanted to put on this list.

  3. I really enjoyed the "Grandma's Attic" series and the "Boxcar Children"—primarily book one. The "Amelia Bedilia" books are so fun!

  4. I don't know which one I want to win because I just found you! I'll have to look into them more . . . :P

  5. So this comment is to enter the giveaway.

    I'd like to win Kate's Innocence; It looks really intriguing!

  6. Your book shelves are so pretty! Crammed with books is the best. ;)

    I think out of all your books I'd have to choose to win Kate's Innocence. I just learned about you and your books this week, so truthfully I haven't had the chance to look at every one yes. But Kate's Innocence already on my to-read list from learning about it on the Mystery Day (I think) of this week, and I would probably eventually buy it, but I'm not sure when I'd have the chance (I'm kind of broke on book money ... ;) ) so it would be a wonderful opportunity if I won it here instead, I could read it so much sooner!

  7. I love the Boxcar Children! :) And I would like to win any of your books.

  8. Great book choice, Sarah! You've read Grandma's Attic and Boxcar Children too!! :D Oh yes, my goodness me, how did I ever forget Amelia Bedelia?! That's a really good book too ;)

  9. I love the Grandma's Attic series, The Boxcar Children, and Amelia Bedilia. And I'll Love You Forever was so sweet! Thanks for sharing. :)

  10. My sister and I loved the "Grandma's Attic" series! Many times we would be laughing out loud!

  11. Your black and white emblem logo thing on your header is nice.

  12. The Amelia Bedelia books were a favorite of mine. :)


  13. Ooh, I loved Amelia Bedelia! :D Such fun! ^_^ And I also loved the first Boxcar Children book -- it was one of the first books I remember reading myself. :)

    Lovely giveaway! I'd pick Kate's Capitol if I won because I'm very much looking forward to reading about the further adventures of Kate and Patrick and the gang! :D

  14. I also enjoy reading Middle Grade books.

  15. Oh I loved reading the Boxcar Children when I was younger. I'd find a secluded corner and would read them the whole afternoon.

  16. I have read "I'll Love you Forever." It almost makes me cry.
