Books That Fill Me with Missionary Zeal

Why yes, that's a totally made up word in my title. Full credit for that goes to author Stephanie Burgis who wrote this post a couple weeks ago about book missionizing. That got me thinking about the books that fill me with the most evangelistic zeal. What are the books I recommend most often and to as many people as possible.

The Authors/Series I recommend:







 

 

These are my auto-buy authors, the ones I love and recommend the most. There are MG, YA, and Adult books here in all different genres: fantasy, science fiction, historical, romance, adventure, mystery. Many of these authors write more than one of these into their story. What you will find with any one of these authors is that whatever they are writing about, it's just darn good writing and their characters will be amazing. Because I love characters.

Individual Books I Get Excited About:







 Those two bottom ones are my most recent obsessions.

What about you? Are there any books that fill you with a passion to let the world know they exist?

  1. We have so many favourites in common that I feel I really ought to check out the ones I haven't read. The Penderwicks, for example, was not on my radar at all. I should do something about that :P

  2. Yes to bibliovangelizing MWT, EWein, Laura Florand, Rachel Neumeier and Melina Marchetta! I need to read Bone Gap because I recently loved I'll Meet You There.

    Love this topic. I have to think about who would make it to my list. Will write a post when I find the time for it!

    1. Isn't it? So many good books. I need this focus after a week of disappointing reading.
