I like to read just about anything I can get my hands on, but my favorite genre is historical fiction. I love to be transported back in time by a great story. Some of my favorite historical fiction titles are, Pope Joan, The Red Tent, These is My Words, and Year of Wonders. There are so many wonderful young adult titles, that it is hard to pick a favorite, but I really enjoyed The Book Thief and, of course, all the Harry Potters. Every so often, I need something lighter, or as I like to call it, “brain candy.” For these guilty pleasures my go to authors are James Patterson, Nelson Demille, and Harlan Coben. I don’t read a whole lot of nonfiction, but occasionally I find one that I just can’t put down. The Prize Winner of Defiance, Ohio definitely falls in this category. As far as my all time favorites, my top three are Cold Sassy Tree, To Kill a Mockingbird, and The Mists of Avalon.
