Yesterday I threw a question out to the webby world, asking for book recommendations. The best stories that people had read recently, that they would recommend to others. And since we all have nothing to read right now… (cough cough…) Yeah, I know. My Nook, alone has 20-something new books in it, waiting for me. But you never know where that next gem will come from, so here you go.
There is quite the mix here, which is how it should be…we all come from different places and love different types of stories.
THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak (teen historical fiction)
THE SOLDIER’S WIFE by Margaret Leroy (historical fiction)
NUM8ERS by Rachel Ward (young adult) (my daughter personally has read this one twice)
BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP by S.J. Watson (literary thriller)
THE PROPOSAL by Mary Balogh (regency romance)
The Burgundy Club series by Miranda Neville (regency romance listed below…)
THE AMOROUS EDUCATION OF CELIA SEATON
CONFESSIONS OF AN ARRANGED MARRIAGE
THE DANGEROUS VISCOUNT
THE WILD MARQUIS
THE PEACH KEEPER by Sarah Addison Allen (women’s fiction)
TEN BEACH ROAD by Wendy Wax (women’s fiction)
HER SISTER’S SHADOW by Katherine Britton (women’s fiction) (I have personally read this one and it’s wonderful)
Two nonfiction books hit the list as well…
UNBROKEN by Laura Hillenbrand (WWII History)
THE FOUR AGREEMENTS by Don Miguel Ruiz (Spiritual Self Help)

If you haven’t read Laurann Dohner… you should!!! I read her New Breed Series a while back… and a bunch of people on Twitter had just started to read her… so I reread her series and got the latest book… then read her Zorn Warriors… and now I’m on her last Cyborg Suduction book… love her stuff!!

After reading Margaret Leroy’s, The Soldier’s Wife, I ordered her entire back-list. Beautiful prose, lyrical description and characters so realistic–I was sure they’d walk into my office at any moment.
