I love favorite books week! Sometimes I even read...

... books for grown-ups.

No, seriously.

Most of the last five years have been spent reading YA in all its various forms. And then, every once in a while, I will decide that I need to stop living in the world of teenagers and actually *gasp* be a grown-up for a bit.

This year, I discovered Sarah Addison Allen. I kept hearing all this great buzz about THE PEACH KEEPER, so I decided to check it out. I loved it literally from page one.



I’m not a huge fan of traditional adult paranormals, but I adore books where the magic is woven in more as part of the ambiance of the story. Sarah is absolutely brilliant at this. Lovely romance, great magic weaving, and an intriguing mystery make this an absolute winner.

Sarah also does something that I love as a reader. Even though her books aren't a series, she sometimes weaves in characters from previous books. Which made me super bummed that I hadn't started with her first book, GARDEN SPELLS.



When my mom passed away this winter after a decade-long battle with cancer, I really needed a charming, lovely, hint of magic read to help me through that difficult time. Allen's books were exactly what I needed when I needed it most. I immediately went out and bought her entire backlist after reading THE PEACH KEEPER. I adore them one and all.

What about you? Which authors have you discovered recently that you absolutely adore?

I love all forms of books! As long as the synopsis sounds interesting, I'll most likely pick it up at some point. I do find many more books I want to read in the young adult section then what I do in any other place in the bookstore.

This looks like a book I'd pick up and read. I will read just about anything (as long as it's not riddled with a gazillion foul words). I haven't read any of Sarah's books but it looks worthy of my time. You didn't happen to download this one on your Kindle, did you?!?

I completely understand your need to live in the adult world sometimes! I'm a middle school librarian and sometimes I need to read books my kids wont! I usually go for Chick-lit; Cabot, Kinsella etc...
I've seen Garden Spells around, so maybe I'll pick it up sometime. Thanks!

I like your thoughts so much that you yourself realize this that you want to move forward and there is also a reason behind this that people also want some change from your side and i believe that people like your stories more than before.

I also like to read all these favorite books because the story given in these books are so different from all others novels.
