it was amazing
bookshelves: fantasy, with-smut, favorites
I own a copy , read count: countless

I picked up this book when i was 16 at my local library. It was an Italian translation and heavily edited (i'd say 1/3 of the book was gone). Nonetheless I loved it. A couple of years later, during a trip to London, i found it in paperback on a bookstore shelf. TOGETHER with Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager. I couldnt believe my eyes, i didnt even know that there were sequels to it. Now, 18 years later, I have read Outlander - or Cross Stitch - more times than i can count. Anytime i feel down or once every 2-3 years i pick it up and read it again. It is one of the most beautiful love stories i ever encountered and even though the story has become a huge saga with encyclopedic books (the author is writing the 8th) and i find my interest a bit waning lately, i still consider this one of - if not the - my favorite romance-fantasy novels.

Wendy F Another lifelong Outlander fan! I love the whole series, but none of them hit me as much as the first one. It was so beautiful!

Limonessa I had to buy the hardback a couple of years ago because my old paperback was coming apart. Great, great book. From A Breath of Snow and Ashes on though it's becoming physically tiresome to hold the books and read them....

Wendy F I have to take loooong breaks between each book so that I don't get overwhelmed and my arms don't get exhausted. I'm still reading all the new ones though. I need to know how it ends.

Limonessa that is IF it will end.... :D

Wendy F Hahaha, right! She's saying she doesn't think this one is the last one either.

Limonessa I read that! And it scared me.
