From Louise, who had a blog but decided to get rid of it:
The Sound of One hand Clapping – Richard Flanning
- I have read this book a few times and each time a different part appeals to me.
The Black Jewel Trilogy – Anne Bishop
- This book opened a whole new genre for me and it is also a superb story
The Babysitters Club – Ann M Martin
- I read everyone I could get my hands on when I was a kid. I so want to be Claudia when I was younger.
The Power of One- Byrce Courtenay
- I read this book for the first time when I was 14 and it really pulled me back into reading and I still love it every time I go for a re read
War and Peace – Leo Tolstoy
- This is an amazing story beautifully written and the sense of achievement when I finished the book was worth the weeks that it took me to read it
Anna Karenina – Leo Tolstoy
- I just loved everything about this book.
The Bridge to Holy Cross (Tatinana & Alexander) – Paullina Simmons
- I was going to say the whole trilogy but then I realised that this one was the best in the series and it is the only one I would consider re reading.
The Red Tent – Anita Diamant
- This book started me on a religious journey and for that I am gratefully plus it is just a really good story
Fall on your knees – Ann Marie MacDonald.
- This book was given to me by someone I used to work with and I have now tried to convince everyone I know to pick up this book. It is dark and disturbing and it is a wonderful piece of writing.
And one is for all the great books I have yet to read and all the books I have loved but didn’t quite make this list.
