Firstly, I don't have all of these books with me, so I hope not having an image of them is okay...
BUT, Let's talk all things books!
I'm not the best with summarizing, as I want to give the whole plot away, or feel like I'm not saying enough..but I'll give a bit of a reason for why I love them so gosh darn much!
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Aka the book that makes you think about life. This book is told through a dog's perspective. Enzo, the dog, tells the story of his life, including the life of his owner and the things that goes on with his life. I love this book because it goes through troubled times in life and how dogs see things differently, and it also has a theme of what will happen when Enzo dies. He wishes to be a human in his next life because he thinks that being a human is the highest honor. After I read this, I just looked at my dog in a different light and it's just a cool read.
The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts
Aka the books that stole my heart. Nora Roberts is by far one of my favorite authors after I was through with this series. It's about a quartet of best friends that have been best friends since they were in diapers. They would always play the game "wedding day", and once they were done with school, Parker, one of the girls, decided to turn that game into a reality and all the girls are partners in a wedding planning business. Each book focuses on the life of a specific girl and you learn their trade and their love life. Mac is the photographer, Emma is the florist, Laurel is the baker, and Parker is the organizer (planner?..still not sure what exactly her job is called). I don't normally reread books, but I have reread this series 5 times already. That says something...
The Inn Boonsboro Trilogy by Nora Roberts
Aka the series that intrigues me. All Nora Roberts series follow the same layout. They are centered around a close-knit group and each book is about a specific person. This series is about the Montgomery brothers: Beckett, Owen, and Ryder. Their family has a contracting (again could be wrong with exactly what their job is called) business and fix up old buildings in the town and get them running again. Their first project? The hotel that has been around since the Civil War. It was rumored that a ghost haunts the hotel, and no one really believed in it until Beckett saw her himself. He named the ghost Lizzy because of the room she was found in. Not only is there a story line with each of the brothers, but throughout the series, you learn about Lizzy too. Ghosts intrigue me so I was hooked from the start. It's another series that I've read several times.
The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks
Aka the book that made me cry. I'm not talking about a little tear, but a full on weep. Nicholas Sparks is notorious for his sad romantic stories, but this was the one that finally got to me. It's about a fireman, Taylor, who rescues Denise one stormy night. It's a standard Sparks book in terms of content, but this particular story can melt even the coldest hearts. If you like romance stories, just trust me on this one...
Have you read any of these books? What did you think?
