    I have a weird love of books pertaining to no particular genre.  I just simply love books.  Some of my faves are:

1.   The Wedding= Julie Garwood  (My first real romance novel)

2.  Shanna=  Kathleen E. Woodiwiss  (I hate that it had to end, but books don't go on forever)

3.  Iron Star=  Brian Kelleher  (One of the best of all time)

4.  Dragons of a Fallen Star [Dragonlance: The War of Souls, Book 1]=  Tracy Hickman and Margaret Weis (On to book two!)

5.  Fool Moon [Book 2 of the Dresden Files]=  Jim Butcher  (Ironic name for the author of a werewolf book... But, on to the next half!)

There are too many!  If I answered this next week, I'd probably come up with different titles, LOL.  Let's see...


As a kid, most of the books by Louisa May Alcottt, the Little House books, A Wrinkle in Time by L'Engle, and The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

More recent faves are:

The Dark  Tower series by King

Ghost Soldiers, Hampton Sides

Morning at Willoughby Run, Richard Shue

Ghenghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

I've thought I need to come up with an 'official list' especially when I see a list of 'top 100 books' or 'books you must read before you die'..I think my list would be much better LOL! :-) and I also  have books from different genres though romance is my main reading.
