- These is My Words by Nancy Turner- This is my very favorite book of all time. I should show you the copy I own. It is...well used. It is the classic adventure of one courageous woman's life and struggles in the Arizona Territories in the nineteenth century. It is fiction, but Sarah Prine was a real woman. Most moving, amazing, romantic, dramatic book I've ever read. EVER. I had the opportunity to interview author Nancy Turner and she is the nicest woman. There are two more books in the series: Sarah's Quilt and Star Garden.
- Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins. I read this twice, back to back, last week. I want to read it again. What's wrong with me? Nothing! This is SUCH a good book! I'm secretly (or not so secretly) in love with Etienne St. Clair. It is about a girl who goes off to boarding school in Paris! You actually FEEL like you're in Paris and you are rooting for Anna and St Clair to get together. The companion novel Lola and the Boy Next Door is released on Sept. 29th! I can't wait!!
- Can You Keep a Secret by Sophie Kinsella. HILARIOUS! I will read anything Sophie writes, but this one just makes me laugh out loud. It is about Emma who is sitting on a turbulent plane. She's always been a nervous flyer. She really thinks that this could be her last moment. So, naturally enough, she starts telling the man sitting next to her all her innermost secrets.It really is SO funny! I'm ready to pick this one up tonight! I need a good laugh.
- Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare. Come on, if you haven't read anything by Cassandra Clare you are probably living under a rock and need to stop everything you're doing a read her books. AMAZING. Period. I'm obsessed with this series. It is a completely amazing paranormal world and it is set in Victorian England. Can it get any better?! The sequel Clockwork Prince comes out in November. I'm freaking out I'm so excited!
- Gables of Legacy series by Anita Stansfield. I've not read this series in about a decade, and I'm dying to. All my books are back in American in my sisters attic but I should order them on Kindle. It is an LDS Christian romance. Set in Australia. Say no more right?! I've not read the companion series that takes place before this in the early 1900's. Same family. I love a period drama. I should order that while I'm at it!
- Austenland by Shannon Hale. I'm a huge Shannon Hale fan and I'd seriously LOVE to go to an Austenland. Sometimes I dream about Mr. Nobley. Plus, I'd love to play dress up. Who wouldn't?!
- The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine. I love fairytale's and Addie is probably my favorite heroine. She is so strong, even though she thinks she is weak. It takes courage to do what she did.
- Twilight by Stephanie Meyers. I said it. I want to re-read it. It has been YEARS since I've read the series and I'd like to feel all those emotions again. I think it's a great book. I don't care what anybody else says. I need a little bit of Edward in my life.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. How can you not want to re-read this? I've seriously never read anything like this. No dystopian can compare. Suzanne Collins practically put the genre on the map. She did it right. End of. I'm also in love with Peeta. How can you not want the boy with the bread?
- Fairy Tale by Cyn Balog. I love fairies. I remember reading this in only a few short hours and feeling so light and in love that i couldn't stop thinking about the book for the next few days. I got to interview author Cyn Balog as well! She is so down to earth and I'll read what ever she wants to write!

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Want to Re-read
I'm participating in Top Ten Tuesday at The Broke and the Bookish. I'm not a meme kind of a person, but I think this one is fun. So here it goes, my Top Ten Books I Want to Re-Read.
I'm a HUGE re-reader. I love re-living the story again. If I love it, why wouldn't I read it again? I know there are so many books I haven't read yet, but when I love a story I need to keep it in my mind and heart often.

I'm wanting to reread the Betsy-Tacy series again. It's been several years since I picked it up. Also, Eight Cousins and Rose in Bloom. Hm... I love rereading books!ReplyDelete
After I wrote this post last night I grabbed The Gables Fact East by Anita Stansfield. The prequel to The Gables of Legacy series I haven't read it a decade. It was WOW! AMAZING! I'm so into it and it's going to cost me a fortune to get all of this series on Kindle but I don't care! I forgot how much I love Anita Stansfield's writing!ReplyDelete
I agree with you on These is My Words!! It's one of my moat frequent re-reads, and I discover something new every time. Consider me very jealous that you got to discuss the book with Turner. I'd have so many questions for her....like, where can I find my own Jack. ;)ReplyDelete
@Sarah (The Brazen Bookworm)- Nancy Turner was SO amazing to interview! She is very down to earth and she even said that if anyone is reading These is My Words for a book club, she would call in for the discussion! Hello?!?! So, if you've got a book club you should totally do it. She signed several book plates for me as well. I love my copy of Star Garden with her signature inside!ReplyDelete
Great list and yes I've still to read the Hunger games xReplyDelete
