Danielle's Books (daniellesbooks) The Iron Fey series ( not the spin off)! I have read the series sooooooooo many times! Their spines are even worn-out from the many times they've been opened!

Yayati, Amrutvel, To kill a mockingbird


message 43: by Lars Martin (new)

Lars Martin (lmborlaug) I'm not one for rereading books, but it has happened. I've read Papillon by Henri Cherrière at least twice. I've also read The Lord of the Rings Twice. Lately I've had the urge for rereading A Wild Sheep Chase by Haruki Murakami. The same goes for some Ernest Hemingway novels; I love A Moveable Feast and The Sun Also Rises. Oh lets not forget A Farewell to Arms.

And what about Scott F. Fitzgerald? Who can forget The Great Gatsby? “It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch our arms further . . . And one fine morning—

So we beat on, boats against the current, borne ceaselessly into the past.”

There are a lot of great books that deserves a reread. The problem is that there are even more books that deserve a first read. But I doubt there's a book out there that will top The Great Gatsby for me. So maybe I should pick it up again.

message 46: by Levi (new)

Levi Underhill | 5 comments I've seen so many posts like this. Really for me, I just found it smart to create a spreadsheet of all the books I've read and a short summary. Most of these books I purchased online so I have an okay Idea as to how many people actually recommended these books as well.

1. Look Again by Lisa Scottoline : http://amzn.to/1YXBNax

This book portrayed a mother's love regardless of how you became a parent. Not only that, it had you asking yourself, would you, could you, make that call? There is a real emotional pull between doing what is right and NEVER wanting to give away your own child. I think that the way she goes about finding out the truth is a very real look at not wanting to show all your cards until you absolutely have to.

2. 15th Affair by James Patterson : http://amzn.to/1YXCbWk

I love reading James Patterson's book; but I especially love and enjoy the Woman's Murder Club series. A cop, a medical examiner, a reporter and a prosecutor make up the club, and when they get together, look out! This book was special. Can Boxer trust her husband. He was missing for over a week, and Boxer finds out he has lied to her. I don't want to reveal too much, but this book kept me turning pages all day. Yep, I could not stop reading it and read it one day. I highly recommend it.

3. The City of Mirrors: A Novel by Justin Cronin : http://amzn.to/1YXBUmk

Really loved this trilogy - will make an excellent film if they ever get around to making it!!! I only wish I had been able to read these books consecutively without waiting for a few years between each one. It was a little difficult to catch up on things and remember where the story I had left off. Although, I will say this one was easier to jump into than the leap from the first book to the second.

4. The Last Mile (Amos Decker series) by David Baldacci : http://amzn.to/1XvtROM

The Last Mile refers to the last journey a Death Row inmate walks as he or she heads toward his/her execution (even if it is only 30 to 50 yards or so). In this novel, the author begins his story with Melvin Mars, a convicted murderer on the Texas death row, just hours before his execution. Spared by a confession by an individual awaiting execution in Alabama, Melvin's case attracts the attention of Amos Decker, the Memory Man, traveling to his new job with an FBI Task Force?

5. Extreme Prey by John Sandford : http://amzn.to/1YXCdxH

I've read everything this guy has written. Some I like more than others but he has never failed to disappoint me! These books are the reason I think I'd like Minnesota..... I'm especially fond of the books featuring Lucas Davenport. If you are looking for an absorbing read, then look no further. This one is perfect for the plane! I started it on the flight out to NYC and finished it on the return flight home. Enjoy!

That's My Contribution. :)

Jason Hubbard | 29 comments Um, my own books cuz I gotta edit them! Beyond that, I have read Stephen King's "The Stand" plus "Jurassic Park" two times. But that was ages ago, before I got a Kindle!
