Your Favorite Books

Your walking through the aisles of your favorite book store or library, browsing for that book that will take you away...what do you pick? Do you pick that classic that you have always wanted to read, or one that your closest friend recommended? Is it mysteries that you love, or historical fiction? I want to know.

I want to know what you love, and who your favorite authors are. Do you like all kinds of different genres, or just one? Do you like series or trilogy's, or prefer the story to end? These are the questions I want answered by my friends and family who have joined my blog. I would love to hear what moves you, what you can't wait to get back home to read! It's okay what ever it is, and don't be shy!

I will list my favorite, although some of you already know. My favorite genre is sci-fi/fantasy, but I do love historical fiction and the occasional murder mystery. I love a book that grabs me and usually I don't want it to end, so I tend to pick the trilogy's or series. I do love details though, not so much that it takes two pages to describe a room, but enough that I see the room.

I just want to hear from all of you so I can see what runs through readers minds, so I can think of those thoughts of yours as I write my own book. I want my book to be the best that it can be and through your support and critiques, I hope to reach that goal. Okay, my list...

The most recent series I've read is the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R. R. Martin, and they have now become my favorite books-ever!

After that, Harry Potter series, Dan Brown's series, Angel and Demons, Da Vinci Code, Lost symbol
I like Nora Robert"s trilogy's, John Sandford's Prey series, Lizzie T. Leaf's Beyond Magic series, Amy Tan, the Bonesetter's Daughter, Jeri Smith Ready's trilogy, The Eye of Crow (by the way, that is a really good trilogy)

I also like, Ray Khoury, Brad Meltzer, Steve Berry, Lisa Jackson and Logan Hawkes.

Those are my favorites, and as you can see, I do like action, but different genres.

So now it's your turn, I can't wait to see what you all like! One more thing, don't forget my contest to name my Orbs. It ends the end of this month!

Love, Lisa

  1. My all time favorite is Dracula, I can also include Frankenstein, Wuthering Heights, and many other classics. I am also a Steven King fan. I have very eclectic taste in my reading, and depending on my mood, I might pick up a mystery or a biography. Lord of the Rings, the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evonovich, the Eragon series, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 1491, Ben Franklin, the Elm Creek Quilters series, to name a smattering of the books I will read. Edgar Allen Poe, Shakespeare, Amy Tan, Morgan Llewellyn, Maeve Binchey, Jane Austen, and the list goes on and on. I just finished a fantastic book called The Night Circus by Rita Morgenstern, and before that Forever by Pete Hamill and Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman. I am currently reading the fourth in the Eragon series, Heritage. This could take me all night or longer, so I will end here. You get the idea, I might read anything.
