Booking Through Thursday hosted



  1. I'd like to add one more - cause I like to break the rules.

    Say Goodnight Gracie by Ralph Pape - my favorite teen read!

  2. Pillars of the Earth is a very worthy inclusion! I've looked at I, Elizabeth a few times. Maybe I need to look closer. . . :-)


  3. I thought about adding "The Sunne in Splendor" to my list, but I would have had to do a few extras.

  4. Wow, our lists would be pretty similar, but no It for me. Way too spooky! What's a list without Outlander?

  5. I'm glad Amy cheated first as I recalled one more after I posted over at Marie's blog :)

    2. The Far Pavilions MM Kaye

    4. Jane Eyre Bronte
    5. Middlemarch Eliot
    6. The Heaven Tree Trilogy Edith Pargeter
    7. The Lymond Chronicles Dorothy Dunnett
    8. My Cousin Rachel D du M
    9. Just for Amy I'm going to pick Pillars of the Earth because I hated it so much it always sticks with me :)
    10. The Welsh Trilogy Penman
    11. The Henry Eleanor trilogy Penman
    12. Shadows and Strongholds by EC
    13. The Sunne in Splendour Penman

  6. Nice Lists there. I also hated Pillars of the Earth. Some parts, sadly do stick with you.

    Happy Thursday

  7. Lezlie: I, Elizabeth was so great, the best I've read on Elizabeth. And yes, Pillars ROCKS!

    Jen: this list could've been longer for me too - too many good reads over the years

    Beth F: I do admit having a few nightmares while reading that one - I was still a teenager. Now I'm petrified of clowns!

    Misfit: Nice list, great minds think alike...except for you hating Pillars and me hating Katherine =) Like I said earlier, my list could've been way longer to include all of EC's books!

  8. There I go -- adding even more books to my TBR pile!!

  9. Great list! I have a few of them in my TBR, but will be adding more to my reminder list.

  10. Amy~I have read several on your list as well and agree they do stick in your mind. I also hated Pillars of the Earth,there are parts I wish I had never read.

    1. How Green is My Valley
    2. Testimoney of Two Men
    3. James Herriott's Series
    4. Gone with the Wind
    5. To Kill a Mockingbird

    13.Innocent Traitor~A.Weir
    15.Tell No One~ Harlan Coben

  11. This requires some time to think about - thanks to the effects of menopause!

  12. Great list. I haven't read any of these but I do own "The Other Boleyn Girl".

  13. Jules: Happy Thursday to you too! It seems that Pillars is a love or hate novel.

    Lynn, zetor, Melissa - I'm glad you liked it, please do check some of these out!

    Susie Tudor Daughter: cool - another Dean Koontz fan?! I've read watchers twice and just love it! I also have Forever Amber (as you can see), but haven't had the honor of reading Legacy yet! I need to get my hands on a copy, I heard the other day somewhere that they Legacy was going to be re-released, so I've got my fingers crossed!

  14. That's a wonderful list! I came very close to including the "Guernsey" book on my list, too - it was one of my favorites from last year. It was so hard to limit myself to just fifteen books!

  15. I haven't read all of the books you listed but the ones I did from your list are also the ones I would definitely include in my list. Especially Pillars of the Earth and The Witching Hour.

  16. Amy that is a great list. I'd have a few of those on my own list!

  17. Oh wow, you've got some goodies there...Forever Amber I loved, Pillars of the EArth, The Other Boleyn Girl and Crimson Petal to only name a few. All these lists I've been seeing have really made me want to go back and reread the books. lol.

  18. Sorry, my brain is working right now for 15, but your list is excellent. We have two in common, Gabaldon and Gregory.
