Christian Fiction Series I Have Read to Completion


If you have been a reader here for a while, you know I intentionally avoided series for years and then suddenly fell in love with them thanks to the Baxter Family books. Now I'm all about series and have so many on my list!

๐Ÿ“š The 13 by Trisha White Priebe (middle grade)... I just finished the third in this trilogy last week. This is written from the perspective of a 13-year-old girl but it's so full of adventure a boy will enjoy it too. I put this one in our 7th grade shelves and already know it'll be a huge hit! 

๐Ÿ“š Baxter Family series (contemporary Christian fiction)... These books are a set of series and then a bunch of stand-alone titles. I have now read through all of the series (Redemption // Firstborn // Sunrise // Above the Line // Bailey Flannigan, in that order!) and the first three stand-alone titles. I almost didn't add this since I'm not done with the stand-alones but they're the whole reason I've come to love series! These books tackle a myriad of sins so there's your trigger warning. 

๐Ÿ“š Carolina Heirlooms, also called Carolina Chronicles by Lisa Wingate (Contemporary Christian fiction)... I went through a big Lisa Wingate kick for a while and really liked the Carolina Heirlooms series. These all work as stand-alones but the characters and locations are connected so it's fun to read them in order anyway. I always recommend this author to fans of the secular author Kristin Hannah. 

๐Ÿ“š Cody Gunner series by Karen Kingsbury (contemporary romance)... I really liked this duology and look forward to eventually getting to watch the Pureflix miniseries of the first book, A Thousand Tomorrows. This is a beautiful love story and a beautiful story about the love between brothers, one of whom has Down Syndrome. 

๐Ÿ“š Intervention series by Terri Blackstock (suspense)... These suspense stories probably each work fine on their own but they work very well together as a fast-paced, page-turner trilogy. These are not squeaky clean- be prepared for drug addiction, violence, and related issues. 

๐Ÿ“š Lost Love by Karen Kingsbury (Contemporary Christian fiction)... This one is also a duology, partially set in the 80s and following a teenage pregnancy + its aftermath. Very dramatic, which I obviously love. 

๐Ÿ“š Moonlighters series by Terri Blackstock (suspense)... This trilogy is so full of amateur sleuthing! Plenty of violence and other sins so don't expect a squeaky-clean story but what a thrill ride! 

๐Ÿ“š Prince Warriors by Priscilla Shirer (middle grade, fantasy)... This middle grade fantasy is full of rich allegory and deeper spiritual concepts in a way kids can visualize. It was originally a trilogy but a fourth book was later added. 

๐Ÿ“š Rock Harbor (suspense)... I have read several stand-alone Colleen Coble books but I believe this is the only series I've completed. This search-and-rescue series set in Michigan is what helped me transition from secular fiction to Christian fiction.
