  1. I enjoyed Thirteenth Tale a lot. My book club also read Possession, but I just couldn't get into it. At present I'm reading The Forever Queen by Helen Hollick. It's slow going but something's holding my interest. Outlander was one of my favorite books last year.

  2. I love your list! I've been wanting to read the Veronica Roth series for awhile…so it's up soon! I read "Confessions" in college and really want to go back and ready it again – also "Mere Christianity." I've read a few Lewis (you can never go wrong, right?), but not that one! Loved "Seven" and wanting to read many more of hers! I loved-hated "Traveling Mercies" but totally recommend it. You'll have to let me know what you think! Thank you for posting this – between yours and all the others you've linked to (many other favorites of mine!), I have no excuse for "not knowing what to read"! Happy Tuesday!

  3. Hey Shannon! I've heard Outlander was good but I haven't read it. I'd love for you to send me your book club list! My group is always looking for something new to read 🙂

  4. Hey Katie! Thanks for the input — I'll let you know :)I think I remember you telling me that you liked the Hunger Games so you should really like Veronica Roth. Strong gutsy girl saving the world — what's not to love about it?! Also, and you may already know this but I didn't, Veronica Roth includes a playlist listing in the back of the books that she listened to when she wrote. Some of Divergent I liked some I didn't but it added an additional color to the story that was cool.

  5. Such a great list! Thank you so much for featuring my list here – wow, I'm grateful and flattered! 🙂 Lots on your list I've loved and read, and lots I'm either planning to read or want to check out – love it!
