Here's my first batch of favorite reads. They are in no particular order, and run the gamut between fun romance, fantasy, and a heart-breaker that became a modern literary classic. Some of these novels are the first in a series; I've listed just the first novel in the series, but I consider the series as one giant favorite read.
|This series is everything I love about fantasy fiction!|
|Still makes me cry|
|My first Katie Fforde novel. Fan for life.|
|This book made me a fan of Alice Hoffman. Fantastic!|
|An out of print series that I read 25 years ago. Still have all of them on my bookshelf.|
|Yes, Clive Barker wrote a teen series! And it is awesome. Get the illustrated editions.|
|Read an advanced copy of this novel and knew it was incredible from page one.|
|My first Christopher Moore novel. Unconventional and hilarious.|
|Read this in junior high; beginning of my mythology obsession as a teen.|
|First read this 30 years ago; still have my original book club hardcover. Reincarnation and history.|
I'll be posting another 40 favorite titles throughout November, to celebrate my **ahem** 50 years on the planet. Honestly, I can't remember when I didn't read. Books are such a part of my life that I can't even fathom a world without them.
