15 Favorite Books

Katie started a meme on her blog a few days ago in order to scope out some new reading material. Since I've seen so many interesting books on the resulting lists, I thought I'd take part too.

(In no particular order)

1. A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving
2. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
3. Child of the Phoenix by Barbara Erskine
4. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
5. Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet
6. Captain Corelli's Mandolin by Louis de Bernieres
7. The Witching Hour by Anne Rice
8. The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
9. The Shipping News by E. Annie Proulx
10. Into the Forest by Jean Hegland
11. The River Why by David Duncan
12. On Rue Tatin by Susan Herrmann Loomis
13. Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
14. The Birth House by Ami Mckay
15. Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel

It's so hard to stop at 15!

If any of you enjoy similar kinds of books and have some read-alikes to recommend, please do!

Thanks for the list. I've only read a few of yours as well. I've added the rest to my list to check out at the library.

Clan of the Cave Bear series! Totally forgot that one Cheryl! I'll have to borrow it from my mother and re read them (for about the 4th time in my life so far!) Some of the others you mentioned look good too. Interesting to see what types of books people lean towards isn't it? :-)

I have read 3 on your list. There are a few on there I have been meaning to read.

Katie - Thanks for starting such a fun list!

Monica - Yes, they're great aren't they? I have the newest one on my shelf but haven't read it yet. Sounds like something to do with my holidays!

Phelan - I'd love to hear what you think if you read them.
