4. If you do not keep a blog, put your challenge in the comments on the day of the event.
I am taking part int the Favourite Book Challenge that is being organised by A Writer’s Journey.
Why don’t you join me?
So – here are my 5 favourites. (So sorry to the rest of the books I love – I’ll get to you next time. Promise)
1. Born Free – Joy Adamson
That Elsa existed is fact; that she lived across two worlds, both with the Adamsons, and free, is the tale that travels across these pages and crosses into your heart.
The book makes you feel a part of such an important and ground breaking wildlife challenge.
2. A Breath of Snow and Ashes – Diana Gabaldon
Facing the American Revolution, Jamie Fraser, and Claire who travelled from the 20th century to be with him, walk a precarious line to keep their family safe against forces that seem determined to drag them into the turmoil.
A great plot and fantastic characters drag you along with the story until you have to blink your eyes to be sure of where you actually are.
3. All Things Bright And Beautiful – James Herriot
James lives in Yorkshire and practices as a vet with the ever surprising Siegfried, as they deal with delightful animals and their sometimes not so owners before the Second World War.
The flow of the book just reaches out and takes you along with James as he travels the moors and back roads.
4. Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
Elizabeth Bennet is the feisty daughter in a family of five daughters, all of whom Mrs Bennet is desperate to find a husband for, and her meeting with Fitzwilliam Darcy takes her and her family on a journey into life they never saw coming.
The words, the characters, the setting are beautiful and it is easy to get lost in it.
5. The Last Precinct – Patricia Cornwall
Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Officer for Virginia becomes involved in a murder case that turns her not so stable world upside down.
It is page turning, gripping, storytelling at its best.
