~Favorite Books for Girls Ages 10-18. Part two~

Here is part two of my recommended books for girls.

Ages 15-18

"Emma", "Pride and Prejudice", "Sense and Sensibility" 
and other works by Jane Austen.
Jane Austen has been a highly recommended authoress by many for generations. Her intelligent writing, tactful story lines, and beautiful characters have been a favorite of mine for a long while. Her writing is definitely for the older ladies.
Recommended for ages 15+

Any Christian biography or autobiography.
I have always enjoyed reading biographies, and I think you would too. There are so many to choose from, both Christian and non-Christian. 
Recomended for ages 10+, but the older ones would understand more of what's going on.

"What would cause and eighteen-year-old  senior class president and home-coming queen from Nashville Tennessee to disobey and disappoint her parents by forgoing college, break her little brother's heart, lose all but a handful of friends (because they think she has gone off the deep end), and break up with the love of her life, all so she could move to Uganda, where she only knew one person and didn't even speak the language?
A passion to follow Jesus.

I absolutely love this book. I was crying, laughing, and living with Katie Davis in Uganda. 
Recommended for ages 17+

Sharing from her own struggles and triumphs, home-schooler Sarah Bryant encourages young ladies to become vital cornerstones in their father's home while preparing for Godly womanhood. Filled with encouragement and personal testimonies, The Family Daughter  will help Christian girls begin their journey of being their family's pillar of strength and virtue.

Recommended for ages 15+

Ask Thy Father is the true story of one child in a christian home who has begun to realize that 
gos gave.. commands- and many like them- for a reason.Contained in these pages is a mini biography of her journey towards learning to be a spritual student of her parents. She shares tales of life in her home, memories of lessons learned, and exclaims over the wondrous ways God has fulfilled His promises to bless those who learn to ask their fathers.

recommended for ages  15+

"Waiting for Her Isaac  is the story of one young womans spiritual preperation for marriage, as well as the story of her courtship. We hope this book will emcourage young women to give themselves completely to the Lord as they wait for Him to unfold His plan for their lives. "
Mr. and Mrs. Stephen B. Castleberry

Recommended for ages 17+

This book has been handed down from sister to sister for the past 15 years. As you can see, it has been well worn, and frequently read.

"Jane Eyre" 
and other works by Charlotte Bronte
if you haven't read Jane Eyre then you are surely missing out on a wonderful book filled with mystery, adventure, love, and easy-to-love characters.
Recommended for ages 17+

"Love Comes Softly Series" 
and other works by Janette Oke
Janette Oke has long been a favorite author of mine.  Her books range from a variety of genres, and are all centered around Christ. Most people think that her writing is mostly romance, but that is not true. If you want  a good tear-jerker, then read Dana's Valley; if you want a book about family love, read Heart of the Wilderness, she also wrote quite a few children's books and devotionals! 
Recommended for ages 15+

Also not pictured are:
 The Chronicles of Narnia Series by C.S. Lewis
Dear America Series by various authors.
And m,any more!

And so ends (just a few) of a my favorite books. I do hope you are able to read at least one! 
What are your favortie books! Maybe make a blog post and leave a link in the comments so I can go read it!
Go over to my first blog post to see my first list for ages 10-14!

Ephesians 4:29-30 KJV.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
