Feature and Follow Friday - Oldies but Goodies!

Alison Can Read Feature & Follow
This week's question is:

Recommend some of your favorite back-list books - books that are at least a few years old (I’m thinking 5-10 years old rather than classics)

I feel like I mention these books a lot, but hey, they're favorites, right?

Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants (series)by Ann Brashares
The Luxe (series), by Anna Godbersen
Memoirs of a Geisha,  by Arthur Goldman
Leviathan (series), by Scott Westerfeld
Revolution, by Jennifer Donnelly
Harry Potter Series, ('nuff said)

A couple of those are a bit newer than five years I think, but these are some of my most memorable titles. Heavy on the historical too. But, what can I say, when it's my favorite genre?

How about you? What books are so great that I just have to read them? Leave me a link! Thanks for visiting, and don't forget to visit all the participating blogs on Parajunkee's and Alison's blogs.

  2. Ooh, I love The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants AND Memoirs of a Geisha. :) And, of course, HP. I've always meant to read the Luxe series - I think actually you suggested it. *ha* Memoirs of a Geisha made me remember Snow Flower and the Secret Fan...have you read that one? I love it as well.

    I'm happy that you also appreciate the greatness that is A Time to Kill, Annette. *ha* Maybe I can talk my husband into reading it. I hope your husband loves it.

    Happy Friday and enjoy the weekend!

  8. I just read the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants for the first time a couple of weeks ago and I loved it. So much more then I thought I would. My sister has read the first 4 books so once I get caught up we are going to read the last one together. Can't wait!
