Pick A Book, Any Book.

Wednesday, July 14, 2010
I normally suggest different books to my followers that I have read or am currently reading. But due to the hectic nature of my schedule, I haven't really caught up on my reading. I'm not quite certain if every writer loves to read, but I know I do. I can get completely swept up in a great novel. Before I know it, it takes over my life. And ten days later, I'm still sitting on my couch more engulfed in the world the author of the book had created. So, I thought I'd take some time and compile a list of my top five favorite reads.

1. The Forbidden Fruit- This novel will tug at your heart strings as it tells the story of Peter Abelard and Heloise a student and her teacher who had a torrid affair in 12th century France.

2. Shutter Island- If you want suspense, mystery, and surprises around every corner, this book will give you that. Dennis Lehane definitely delivers!

3. The Seducer's Diary- I could actually feel the passion coming from Soren Kierkegaard's masterpiece as he laid his heart out on the table describing the way he felt about Cordelia.

4. Dead Until Dark- This wouldn't be a top reading list without a little Sookie Stackhouse, right?

5. Little Women- In Louisa May Alcott's debut novel, you have everything, love, heartbreak, and tragedy.

If you haven't read these already, you should definitely pick them up!

    Wow--Thanks for the recommendations!!!! Those sound really good!!! I don't know why I've never picked up Little Women--I've totally LOVED all the movie adaptations!

    ...I'd love to hear if you've seen the Shutter Island movie...I was at a drive-in, and accidentally saw the ending, and I'm curious how they compare.

    Thanks again!

    I saw the movie too! I thought it was great. I enjoyed it so much because it followed the book to a T.
