I’m not a big re- person. I don’t like to rewatch movies (except for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, because…um…Bueller), and I don’t really like to reread books.
However, there are several books that I love so much that I read over and over again. Let’s start with the classics, shall we? I read The Great Gatsby every year. I love that book so much. The characters are fascinating and the plot is exciting. If DiCaprio screws up by beloved Jay in the new movie, I’m gonna be pissed.
I also love to read The Catcher in the Rye, Lord of the Flies and The Thorn Birds. (My son is, in fact, named after a Thorn Birds character. Don’t judge. Feel free to guess in comments which name it is.)
Now, as for modern books, there are some that I have read recently that are just so much fun, I have to read again.
Sweet Dreams – Kristen Ashley. She isn’t called the Queen of Crack for nothing. Her books are crack. And I love ’em. Sweet Dreams still remains my favorite of her books. Oh, Tate Jackson, you sexy man, you. Plus, you played for the Philadelphia Eagles. BONUS POINTS.
Matter of Time series – Mary Calmes. She’s the Queen of Crack of the gay romance world. Her books just have this certain voice to them that I eat up like candy. Jory and Sam are so much fun and so full of drama, I can’t look away.
Hearts in Darkness by Laura Kaye – I LOVE this book. It’s a novella about two likeable characters who bond while trapped in an elevator. And there’s hot lovin’. I love that the hero has some serious emotional baggage but he’s not a douche.
Sheltered by Charlotte Stein – Charlotte is such a cool writer. No one writes like her. I could read a dozen books without the author listed and pick hers out. She’s an erotica author, and this book is just so sweet. The heroine is adorable and I just want to hug her. The only downside is I wish this was longer! Write a sequel Ms. Stein!
Anything by Kathryn Le Veque – She writes medieval romances and I love them all so much. She always take the impossible couple and somehow gets them together in the end. The men are always big and strong and awesome warriors. There’s nothing sexy about heavy armor, but somehow she makes sweaty, bloody, dirty men irresistible.
I have many books that are my favorite but sometimes they are just too emotional to reread. I don’t know, it’s hard to explain. I should be able to, since I’m a writer and all, haha. But these are all my favorite to read over and over again. I think I’ve read Sweet Dreams about three times. I tried to put Tate on our baby name list when I was pregnant, but the hubs shot it down. Spoil sport.
