I had a page on my website that referenced some of my favorite all time reads because I get asked so often for recommendations. So I'm going to duplicate them here, divided into YA and adult. Guys - please understand that I'm only making the two distinctions because parents can get uncomfortable with teens reading what they consider "adult" material. I think that's each family's business, and I'm just being careful not to recommend to twelve year olds something that's sooooo not appropriate.
Some of my all time favorite books are:
Beauty by Robin McKinley
Dragon Flight, Dragon Quest, and The White Dragon by Anne McCaffrey
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My Losing Season by Pat Conroy
Wicked Lovely and Fragile Eternity by Melissa Marr
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
The Hawksong Books by Amelia Atwater Rhodes
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare
The Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon
Watchers by Dean Koontz
The Odd Thomas books by Dean Koontz
I really love Wilbur Smith's African novels!
Anything at all by Pat Conroy, but I especially love Beach Music, The Prince of Tides, The Water is Wide, and The Great Santini
Anything Christopher Moore writes. My current favorites are: Fool and Lamb.
If you want hot and sexy, Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series will be a perfect fit.
I also totally heart Kresley Cole's books.
And I think everyone should read: Winds of War by Hermon Wouk, Shogun by James Clavell, Night by Elie Wiesel, and The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Requiem for the Devil by Jeri Smith Ready is an amazing novel
Wow! There are so many amazing books!
