Book Blogger Hop August 12

 The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, it was relaunched on February 15, 2013 by Billy @ the Ramblings of a coffee addict. . Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to your own blog.

This weeks question is: What are some of your favourite books? (Julie @ Stepping Stone Book Reviews)

This is a lovely question and I’m looking forward to reading people’s answers. I’ll keep my list to ten. They aren’t in any particular order though.

Magician – Raymond Feist

The Goblin Emperor – Katharine Addison

Winter’s Orbit – Everina Maxwell

Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen

Picture of Dorian Grey – Oscar Wilde

The Heron’s Call – Ann Cleeves

Arabella = Georgette Heyer

Magic’s Promise – Mercedes Lackey

Dragonflight – Anne McCaffery

Lord of the Rings – J R R Tolkein

I could go on as there are so many books that I have loved recently. These have mainly all stayed in my mind for over a year though.

What would be on your list?
