The list author says: "Well, these are my favorite books. I'm not insanely qualified and I don't have any degree [yet] in analytical reading to better the mind, body, and soul, BUT I have read a lot of books, and I'm an in pursuit of my English with Teacher Certification degree...not that that really counts for much. OK, so here goes.."
"Set in the United States in a small, farming town during the early 1900's, this story tells the tale of Penny, young daughter of the town beauty, and scandal, who happens to be the housekeeper for the wealthiest man in town. There is tons going on in this book, and it weaves a complicated web of family, lies, and friendship."
"This love story follows Lucy/Constance/Sophia, Daniel, and Daniel's evil brother. Daniel is unique: he is able to remember everything from each of his many past lives, and when he sees Lucy, he knows her as the former Sophia/Constance. It's Daniel's job to try and respark their old flame without scaring her off, while attempting to protect her from his jealous older brother."
"This is my favorite series EVER. It's becomming a little cliche, what with the show and the vampire craze, but still. It's a guilty pleasure. This series has it all- From sex, lies, and secrets, to love, friendships, and full-blown wars. If you enjoy reading books that have a lot going on, this is the series for you!"
"It's been a while since I've read this book, but I still remember it well. I was a little younger when I read it, and was completely captivated. This is a lovely historical fiction piece, that is rather haunting. I would recommend it for anyone from ages 15 to a million, granted that they love historical fiction!"
"This is the first in another series by Charlaine Harris that follows Harper Conelly, a twenty-something miss with an interesting talent, and her step brother-turned-love interest, Tolliver as they are called from place to place finding bodies and solving crimes."
"This book didn't really cause me to jump up and down, but I'm including it because it's the first in the Lily Bard Mystery Series. It was good, don't get me wrong, but the second is just much stronger. I'm reading the third now!"
"This was the book that started it all for me. I read it a couple of years ago, and it encouraged me to just keep on reading! This is a ghost story, a love story, and a nice depiction of small town life and family secrets. I love this book. It's a good one to read during a stormy weekend when leaving the house just seems like a bad idea!"
