There are too many good books to read out there, and sometimes is hard to find the time to re -read a previous one. In any case, if I have more time here are the 5 books that I would like to read again (it has been hard to shorten the list to just 5!):
Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen
” In a remote Hertfordshire village, far off the good coach roads of George III’s England, a country squire of no great means must marry off his five vivacious daughters. At the heart of this all-consuming enterprise are his headstrong second daughter Elizabeth Bennet and her aristocratic suitor Fitzwilliam Darcy — two lovers whose pride must be humbled and prejudices dissolved before the novel can come to its splendid conclusion”
I must confess that this one is one of my favorites and I already read it twice (or even maybe three times:)). The truth is that I am always captivated by Mr. Darcy and his personality. When he declares his love is one of my favorite scenes.I also like Elizabeth Bennet and her progressive mentality in an age where women were “forced” to get married, even without love. I think that one of the reasons that I like her so much is that you end up feeling identified with her.
Jewels of the sun by Nora Roberts
” Determined to reevaluate her life, Jude Murray flees America to take refuge in Faerie Hill Cottage, immersing herself in the study of Irish folklore and discovering hope for the future of the magical past.
Finally back home in Ireland after years of traveling, Aidan Gallagher possesses an uncommon understanding of his country’s haunting myths. Although he’s devoted to managing the family pub, a hint of wildness still glints in his eyes—and in Jude, he sees a woman who can both soothe his heart and stir his blood. And he begins to share the legends of the land with her—while they create a passionate history of their ownThis is the first part of the thrilogy of the Irish trilogy.”
I read this book when I was 15 years old, and it was my first romantic book,and also the first book that I read from this author. I just felt in love with the characters, the amazing crountry side of Ireland, the love story and the need to search to oneself. Since then,I have read every book I of the author. I also read when she is writing as JD Robb, the “In death” series is amazing.
A prisioner of birth by Jeffrey Archer
“If Danny Cartwright had proposed to Beth Wilson on any other day, he would not have been arrested and charged with the murder of his best friend. But when the prosecution witnesses happen to be a group of four upper-crust college friends―a barrister, a popular actor, an aristocrat, and the youngest partner in an established firm’s history―who is going to believe Danny’s side of the story?
Danny is sentenced to twenty-two years and sent to Belmarsh prison, the highest-security jail in the land, from where no inmate has ever escaped. But Spencer Craig, Lawrence Davenport, Gerald Payne, and Toby Mortimer all underestimate Danny’s determination to seek revenge―and the extent to which his fiancée Beth will go in pursuit of justice”
Also a book read long time ago. When you start reading it you can find certain similarities with “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas. I was really caught into the story because the main characters definition was very well defined. First, you can find the most naive and ignorant man who thinks justice will preveil. And after, a vengative and very well educated and intelligent man. An incredible book that I recommend.
The closers by Michael Connelly
“He walked away from the job three years ago. But Harry Bosch cannot resist the call to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. His mission: solve murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A.’s tides of crime. With some people openly rooting for his failure, Harry catches the case of a teenager dragged off to her death on Oat Mountain, and traces the DNA on the murder weapon to a small-time criminal. But something bigger and darker beckons, and Harry must battle to fit all the pieces together. Shaking cages and rattling ghosts, he will push the rules to the limit-and expose the kind of truth that shatters lives, ends careers, and keeps the dead whispering in the night….”
A cold case reopened. You might think that is just another detective book, but I was really caught in the story behind, even surprised with the end. I have read other books from this author. Harry Bosh is a kick-ass detective that won´t stop until he uncovers the truth and the killer.
And then there were none by Agatha Christie
“Ten . . .”
Ten strangers are lured to an isolated island mansion off the Devon coast by a mysterious “U. N. Owen.”
“Nine . . .”
At dinner a recorded message accuses each of them in turn of having a guilty secret, and by the end of the night one of the guests is dead.
“Eight . . .”
Stranded by a violent storm, and haunted by a nursery rhyme counting down one by one . . . as one by one . . . they begin to die.
“Seven . . .”
Which among them is the killer and will any of them survive?”
This was the book that discover to me this author. I remember that I read it as part of the list of books that my teacher “force” us to read. It was incredible. I was really impressed how everything was related to the grand master plan behind.
What do you think? Have you read them? Which ones would you read again?
