I must say, I have friends with excellent book tastes 😉

1 – It was Felling Night and the usual crowd had gathered at the Waystone Inn.

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfus – excellent epic fantasy

2 – Lucivar Yaslana, the Eyrien half-breed, watched the guards drag the sobbing man to the boat.

Daughter of the Blood by Anne Bishop [Black Jewels Trilogy] – the beginning of a dark, luscious fantasy series

3 – It wasn’t a very likely place for disappearances, at least at first glance.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon – I’m ready for the next installment coming this fall!

4 – On February 24, 1815, the lookout at Notre-Dame de la Garde signalled the arrival of the three-master Pharaon, coming from Smyrna, Trieste and Naples.

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexander Dumas – an amazing adventure story.

5 – Darius looked around the club, taking in the teeming, half-naked bodies on the dance floor.

Dark Lover by J R Ward [Black Dagger Brotherhood] – I think I’ve evangelized enough on this series lately LOL

6 – [She] was not beautiful, but men seldom realized it when caught by her charm as the [–] twins were.

Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell – the movie is a favorite, but the book is so much better.  My paperback edition is falling apart…

The Curse of Chalion by Lois McMaster Bujold – another epic fantasy novel

9 – The two men appeared out of nowhere, a few yards apart in the narrow, moonlit lane.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling – my favorite of the series

10 – “Unsolved mysteries.” Raymond West blew out a cloud of smoke and repeated the words with a kind of deliberate self-conscious pleasure.

The Thirteen Problems by Agatha Christie – when I first read this collection, it was called “The Tuesday Club Murders”

11 – “It is an interesting fact that the members of the National Industrial Association who were at that dinner last evening represent, in the aggregate, assets of something like thirty billion dollars.”

  1. I have read lots of these books listed and I agree, they are all so good! I know we have similar tastes in books and I had to tell you about the one I am reading now called Mistborn: The Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. It is amazing, I think you’d really enjoy it 🙂 Let me know if you read it!
