Fifteen Books in Fifteen Minutes

30 Jun

Craning for a book on Flickr – Photo Sharing!

The Rules:

1) YOU MAY ONLY TAKE 15 MINUTES TO COMPLETE THIS EXERCISE – NO EDITS ALLOWED

2) List fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you

3) Post your list on your blog and drop a link into the comments here

I found this on Alice Gray’s site and decided to join the fun. I chose the novels on my list in no particular order. Some, like Lying in Bed or Love Walked In, have such a strong poetic voice that I can’t forget them. I would say that is true for most of the books here. But there are a few that took stories in a new direction or crossed boundaries that I hadn’t seen crossed when I first read them. I included the first futuristic romance I read and the first time travel. The We Tell Stories Project is not a single book but it introduced me to the world of interactive fiction and ARG.

Lying in Bed by M. J. Rose
Love Walked In by Marisa de los Santos
Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Shadow and the Star by Laura Kinsale

Broken by Megan Hart
Hide by Lisa Gardner
The Woods by Harlen Coben
Warrior’s Woman by Johanna Lindsey
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

    I recognize four of your titles but have not read any of them ~blushes~

    It was a fun activity. Thanks for participating! I’m going to look up your choices in greater depth.

    Okay, so now I’m wondering which four you recognized.
