Spring Fever: Top Ten Books
I'd Play Hooky With
– or books I probably shouldn’t pick up
unless I have some time off…
1 Persuasion. Who wouldn’t want to spend a lovely day reading Jane Austen?
2 The Orchid Affair by Lauren Willig. When I start one of Lauren’s books, I better not have anything planned, because it will NOT get done! I fall into those books and don’t walk away until I am done, if possible.
3 Mr. Darcy Forever by Victoria Connelly. I have so enjoyed this author and I think that if I start to read this last in the ‘Austen Addicts’ series, it will have to be a hooky day!
4 Sisters by Danielle Steele. It’s been a long time since I have read a Danielle Steele book, but I remember being sucked in to her books, so it sounds like the perfect one for a day of reading.
5 The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. Okay… I have seen the movie now, and everyone in the family has read this one… and it’s a quick read, so I just might have to play hooky to read it!
6 Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont. If someone gave this book to me, I would have to sit down with a nice cup of tea and read it right away!
7 Definitely NOT Mr. Darcy by Karen Doornebos. I think this would be a great book to sit down with and read away! Love the cover and the title completely grabbed me!
8 Austentatious by Alyssa Goodnight. If I knew I was going to play hooky, and wanted a perfectly amusing heroine, Nic James would be my companion for the afternoon! This one deserves a re-read!
9 Soulless by Gail Carriger. If someone was wonderful and plunked this one into my ready-waiting hands, I don’t think I could leave the story until the very end… and I am sure I would be awaiting the next book. Victorian manners and humor, count me in!
10 Juliet Immortal by Stacey Jay. Once again, if this book happened upon me, or I happened upon it, I would most likely fall into a comfy chair and not want to get out until I was done with the story!
