25 Favorite Fiction Books

This is a list of my all time favorite books of fiction. I primarily read fiction books for entertainment and enjoyment. But, every once in awhile I read a novel that will move me. And, here is a list of some of these books.

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini

This is by far my favorite novel of all time. Never have I read a book that took me through all of my emotions until this one. Opened my eyes to some of the injustices of the world.

Pines (The Wayward Pines Series, Book One)

Blake Crouch on How the Television Series Twin Peaks Inspired Pines On April 8, 1990, the pilot episode of Mark Frost and David Lynch's iconic television series, Twin Peaks, aired on ABC, and for a moment, the mystery of Who Killed Laura Palmer? held America transfixed.

One Moonlit Night by Michael Yarwood

Historical novel set during the Jewish Holocaust. Ellicited a lot of emotion and full of unknowns.

Thr3e by Ted Dekker

This book had me throughout the whole story. Big surprise at the very end. Very well written and clever. Sadly, I haven't fared well with other Dekker novels.

This Present Darkness by Frank E. Peretti

A classic. The best distinctly Christian novel I've read. Opened my eyes to what spiritual warfare may look like.

Relic by Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child

This duo is comprised of some of my favorite authors of fiction. This story is the best book of thriller and suspense I've ever read. Purely entertaining.

Timeline by Michael Crichton

Excellent novel that described a time from another era with great detail. Crichton is by far one of my favorite authors.

The Confession: A Novel by John Grisham

This book was instrumental in helping to change my view on capital punishment.

Bad Idea: A Novel With Coyotes by Todd Hafer, Jedd Hafer

Don't know how to describe it. Just a hilarious, down-to-earth drama that made me laugh often.

The Tristan Betrayal by Robert Ludlum

One of my favorite novels set during WWII. Full of non-stop adventure and mystery.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Post-apocalyptic novel that displays a great love between a father and his son.

Deep Storm by Lincoln Child

If you like high speed adventure and mystery, you will like this one. I could easily have seen this made into a Hollywood film.

Pirate Latitudes: A Novel by Michael Crichton

A great historical fiction. Supposedly written posthumously by Crichton.

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Very well written story set in WWII.

Piercing the Darkness by Frank Peretti

Sequel to This Present Darkness. Just as good as the first book.

The Wind Singer by William Nicholson

One of the best Young Adult books I've ever read. I liken this story to The Hobbit.

The Ambler Warning by Robert Ludlum

My first Ludlum book I ever read. Picked it up at the airport and I think I read the whole thing on my 3 hour flight. Excellent if you like mystery and intrigue.

The Awakened Books One Through Three by Jason Tesar

My favorite trilogy. Clever writing by an amateur author. One of the best in the fantasy genre I've read.

The Remaining by D.J. Molles

A story about faith, hope, and trust, set in a post-apocalyptic time.
