Bout of Books 11: Day Six Update and Day Seven Challenge!

Bout of Books

Day Six Update: I had another really good day of reading today, I read the final 160 pages of What Your Heart Needs For The Hard Days by Holley Gerth. And I read the first 15 pages of Love's Reckoning by Laura Frantz.

5 Books Challenge hosted by Falling Down The Book Hole

"It is 11:00 PM on a Sunday night. You are laying in bed thinking about all of the things you must do the next day. Tasks of the coming days consume your thoughts and while your mind is somewhere else you are caught off guard by a flash in the sky that is followed by a large wailing screech that pierces the air and shatters your bedroom window. Slowly you move to the window and what you see catches your breathe and causes you to stumble back a few steps. The aliens (at least you think they are aliens) have began to enter the city and destroy everything that is in their path. Through the window your view is consumed with destruction, screaming people and large flames that are dancing across the city at a fast pace. You notice that the creatures are heading in your direction and you realize you probably have about fifteen minutes before they reach your home. That means you have only about ten minutes to gather your belongings and escape before you are caught in the attack from the aliens invading the city."

"Given the short amount of time you are only able to take 5 books with you. What books would you pick to take with you as you escape and prepare for the end of the world. Would you choose books that would help you survive in the post-apocalyptic world ,books for pleasure that would make you happy and take you to a fantasy reality or books that you can’t live without?"

My Books:

Remnants: Season of Wonder by Lisa T. Bergren-This is a dystopian with a strong female main character and a foundation of hope that would help me to have courage.

The Icing On The Cake by Janice Thompson-I haven't read this book yet, but all of this author's books are absolutely hilarious and I'm sure I could definitely use some laughs!

The Bible-The only true survival guide.

The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund-This book is based on a true story about missionaries struggling to survive while traveling the Oregon trail, so it is another one that would definitely inspire me to be brave!

The River of Time Chronicles by Lisa T. Bergren-So this is technically cheating because it's a 3-in-1 but I couldn't live without at least the first three books in my all time favorite series!
