Book Blogger Hop - 6/14 - 6/20




QUESTION OF THE WEEK:

What is your favorite genre? (genre that you read the most) - Recommend a book!  

MY ANSWER:

My favorite genre is definitely historical fiction.  

Oh dear...only recommend ONE book?  I don't think I can do that.  I HAVE to list more than one.  :)

1.  THE ORCHARDIST by Amanda Coplin.
2.  THE HOUSE GIRL by Tara Conklin.
3.  CASCADE by Maryanne O'Hara.
4.  CITY OF WOMEN by David R. Gillham.
5.  THE ISLAND HOUSE by Posie Graeme-Evans.

Ok...I guess that is enough, but I could go on and on.

THANKS for "listening." :)

Looking forward to your titles.

  1. I like to read historical novels now and then. Then I find I need to go back to contemporary. Like you when I was listing mine, I couldn't just stop at one!

  4. I like historical fiction too, but I equally like other genres, like non-fiction and contemporary middle-grade and YA.

  8. I like fiction and biographies. Sometimes I like historical fiction, like Philippa Gregory's books about Henry VIII's wives and lovers.

  11. I don't usually read historical fiction, but really should! I know there are many great books in this genre! The last one I remember reading was about the last Russian tsar and his wife. Gee, I can't recall the title, but it was a FASCINATING story!

    I saw "City of Women" on Goodreads the other day, but only briefly. I'll return to check it out (although I would prefer to read a book titled "City of Men"....lol.)

    As for the other books you mention, I'll have to check them out, too, since this is the first time I've heard of them.

    Thanks for the recommendations! Happy Reading!! :)

  12. Well, guess what! I already had some of these books on my Goodreads TBR list!! The two exceptions were "The Orchardist", and "The Island House". I have just added "The Island House".

    You know, I have SO many books on my Goodreads TBR (more than 2,000) I can't possibly remember them all! Lol.

  13. All of the titles you suggested were new to me. The Orchardist sounds really good! Thanks for stopping by! I hope to see you around my blog,

  17. Wow, I have heard of like NONE of those books. It's probably because historical fiction is one of my least favorite genres though. Especially when there are nothing but pages and pages of description of clothing and food and society blah, blah, blah. *Sigh*

    (Can I tell you a secret? I can't stand books like Jane Eyre. I know! Shh... Don't tell anyone. I don't want them to revoke my girl card.)

    Isn't it awesome how diversity makes the world go round? Happy Reading in your fav genre!

  18. I will keep quiet. :)

  19. I think historical novels are also my favourites, though, there are so many more ...

    One of my favourite authors regarding this genre is Edward Rutherfurd, I just love all of his books. But there are so many more.
