Hmm. This week is a throwback to older books we don’t want to be forgotten. Well the sad part is that I really have only been devouring books for the past two years or so. That means that most of my books have not been forgotten, which makes this week much harder. Sigh.
That being said I think I will give a shout out to the . . .
Top Ten Books That I Fell In Love With
This was one that I borrowed from my college library for my plane ride home. Yes, I mailed it back to my roommate to have her turn it in for me. I know it was lame, but I didn’t have the money at the moment to buy the book before I left for home.
Who would I be if I didn’t share my love of all things Harry Potter?! Sadly, I watched the first movie before I read the book. But I love the books so much that my 4 year old daughter and I are reading the first book together.
I actually adored this book and was really sad that the movie wasn’t better and didn’t take off.
Yes, to my eternal shame this is one of the first books that I read in the paranormal genre and fell in love. I do enjoy it, however, I like to think that my tastes have matured since then. Now I have tons more in the genre that I think outshine this book and series but it will still always be remembered as that book I one time thought it was the world.
I love this series to this day! Honestly, it is a great book for all ages. Time Travel, Mystery and True Love all rolled up into one. If you haven’t heard of it you should add it to your TBR list right now!
I really loved this series up until the last couple of books. It just seems to be taking forever to get to the end and I have lost interest. Book 7 is still sitting on my nightstand with a book mark halfway through.
I have to tell you a small story. I saw book number 4 on display in the lobby of Barnes and Noble and I thought the cover was awesome. So what did I do? I went in search of book 1 and bought it without reading the back. Marketing gets all the credit for this series!
I have to thank Hubby for this one as well. He has read and loved all the many books before this one and we decided to read this one together. I fell in love with the Shannara series from the first chapter. The world is amazing and the characters have so many adventures with the plot’s many twists and turns. Excellent Fantasy series.
My sister gave me her copy of this book and I read it in a day. It is not extremely long but is excellent. It is kind of a Romeo and Juliet take but with shifters. He is a snake shifter and she is a hawk shifter. Really it is quite good. I would suggest it for any age. I still read it when I am looking for a quick book.
Do you remember those first few books that you read and loved? What were they?
