“Tale As Old As Time” – A popular theme, trope or setting you will never get bored of reading.
I will probably never get tired of historical mysteries that center around family drama/scandal.
Some of my favorites…
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
The Distant Hours by Kate Morton
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
You can read my review for June here → Book Review: June by Miranda Beverly-Whittemore
Belle – A book your brought for it’s beautiful cover that’s just as beautiful inside too
» The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron
The cover of this book is absolutely stunning! However, the real beauty is WITHIN the pages. It was such a beautiful story of hope, love, and faith. You can read my review here → Book Review: The Butterfly and the Violin by Kristy Cambron
Beast – A book you didn’t expect much from but pleasantly surprised you.
» The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
“I went into this book with low expectations, however I am happy to report that I was pleasantly surprised.” A line from the first paragraph of my review for this book. You can read the rest of my review here → Book Review: The Raven Boys (The Raven Cycle #1) by Maggie Stiefvater
Gaston – A book everyone loves that you don’t
» Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James
Don’t even get me started on this series. I will launch into a long rant.
Lefou – A loyal sidekick you can’t help but love more than their counter part.
»Fermín from The Shadow of the Wind
I just loved Fermín even more than the main character, Daniel. He was funny, loyal, and wildly inappropriate. What’s not to love? You can read my review here → Book Review: The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Mrs Potts, Chip, Lumier & Cogsworth – A book that helped you through a difficult time or that taught you something valuable
» The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
This was a inspirational book about life told in parable form. I wrote a post about the life lessons this book taught me, which you can read here → 5 Things The Alchemist Taught Me About Life
“Something There” – A book or a series that you weren’t into at first but picked up towards the end.
» Hanging Mary by Susan Higginbotham
I thought the premise of this book was brilliant, however it fell flat for me. If it weren’t for the last 25% of the book, this book would have been a total flop. You can read my full review here → Book Review: Hanging Mary by Susan Higginbotham
“Be Our Guest” – A fictional character you’d love to have over for dinner
» Lou from Me Before You and Lila from A Darker Shade of Magic
I know, I cheated and chose two. Wouldn’t this be the best dinner party ever? I feel like alcohol would be involved…
