I would want to have "To Kill a Mockingbird". One of my all time favorites!
Reviewed "Unbroken"...best book I read last year!
Books, whether paper, audio, or on a tablet, are the best! I love to curl up and read a good book at home and during long road trips and boring tasks as work audio books are wonderful. My favorite is to find old favorites from when I was younger and set them aside for when my daughter is old enough to enjoy them.
The help was amazing!
Love "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. I could read it over and over! Also love anything by Karen Kingsbury, and love all the John Grisham books. Of course, my all time favorites are the "Little House on the Prairie" series of books. Can never be too old for those. :)
I read the Hunger Games trilogy and loved it! Can't wait for the movie!
I love to read. It has always been a pleasure of mine. I hope to pass that love onto my son. Currently he also loves to read and be read to.
Totally agree with the Jodi Picoult pick! She is a terriffic writer. I've loved every single one of her books. Can't put them down. I am a book-aholic. I just wish I could read faster so I could read more!
I just added a review of one of my favorite books-When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, and I plan to write a few more. When I saw the reviews I couldn't think of anything to review off-hand, now my mind is pouring over! I hope I win, that Blueprints for building better girls looks really interesting!
Every year I read new books and re-read some old favorites. I'd never want to be without The Lord of the Rings Trilogy if I were stranded on a desert island. I'd call them together my all-time favorite. I've really enjoyed the Alphabet series by Sue Grafton (A is for Alibi etc.), the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, the Charlotte McNally Series (Drive Time, Face Time etc.) by Hank Phillippi Ryan, the Merci Ryan series by T. Jefferson Parker, OMG, too many to name!
I love to read! I have so many "favorites" I don't know where to start. Right now I am reading The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I am a big fan of Danielle Steel,V.C. Andrews,and Nicholas Sparks. Oh,I loved the Harry potter series too. I think my all time favorite book was The Summerhouse by Jude Deveraux.
I am one of the stubborn ones that refuses to download a book. I don't want a Nook or a Kindle, I'll stick to good 'ol fashioned books. I love the smell of the book, the look of the print on the page, and the sound of the pages being turned. I am always reading something...the day I finish a book is usually the day I start a new book! I recently read and absolutely loved The Red Tent & The Help.
I've recently read The Help and Sarah's Key. Both were excellent books. The Help made me laugh and cry. I don't think I've ever read such a seriously funny book before! Sarah's Key gave me a completely new perspective on the Holocaust. Very sad and moving.
I just read One For The Money. It's dog The Bounty Hunter with a twist! I loved it! I can't wait for the movie to come out this week! I loved the book so much so that I want to read the whole series!! It's funny and would recommend to anyone who likes to read.
I reviewed Wonderstruck a book my 8-year old and I really enjoyed! We spend the last half hour before bedtime reading together each night.
