What Are Some of Your Favorite Books? (Part Two)

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is safe and sound indoors during this lovely blizzard. I don't know about you, but this weather makes me want to curl up with some tea in front of the fireplace and read. I have about seven books in the queue for the next few days of hibernation.

When the book club first started, I had posted a discussion for folks to list the books they're currently reading, have read recently and/or some of their favorites. We had some great responses (and I know I checked out a few of the selections based on the recommendations) so, as we have a lot of new members since that original post, I wanted to throw a new one out there so folks could continue adding.

Attached is a link to the original thread, in case you want to check out some of the excellent recommendations by our longtime members. Please feel free to add to the list!­

What are you reading? What are you looking forward to reading? What are some of your all time favorites? Who are some of your favorite authors?

Thanks all!
