What are YOUR favorite books?   4 comments

Image result for image of a book

Normally, for the blog hop, it’s some question pertaining to me, but this week we’re tasked with asking our readers what their favorite books are. I probably should have posted this earlier in the week, but CoVid19, a new book launch and telecommuting distracted me.


1. Link your blog to this hop.

2. Notify your following that you are participating in this blog hop.

3. Promise to visit/leave a comment on all participants’ blogs.

4. Tweet/or share each person’s blog post. Use #OpenBook when tweeting.

5. Put a banner on your blog that you are participating.

<div style=”padding:8px;”><p style=”margin-bottom:15px;”>You are invited to the <strong>Inlinkz</strong> link party!</p>

I’ll go first to make it easier for folks, but you can put your favorites in the comment box.

My favorite books span 40 years, of course. I really like anything by Madelaine L’Engle or Charles Dickens, but I will check out any new book written by Tad Williams, Katharine Kerr, Kate Elliot or Brandon Sanderson. Yes, I might be a fantasy and science fiction fan. I really like writers who world-build and the ones listed above do that, creating settings that you feel you’ve stepped into and could interact with the characters — or be one of the characters. You can feel the dirty streets of London as you read Dickens. You experience standing in the nave of St. John’s Catherdral reading L’Engle’s The Young Unicorns. Elliot, Kerr, Sanderson and Williams build entire worlds and then invite readers to visit.

Yes, there are other writers I love, but this post is about what books YOU, the readers, love. Go!

  1. An interesting topic, I suppose we must share our favourite books in order to start the conversation.


  2. I’ve come across some new books I really enjoyed lately. I won’t call them my favorite, but they were good. I just finished The Devil’s Caress by Angela Pryce and the story was different enough to grab my attention and well-written enough that my inner-editor shut down and I could sit back and enjoy the read.
