The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
The Winter Rose by Jennifer Donnelly
Testimony by Anita Shreve
The Thirteenth Tale by Diana Setterfield

The rest of the books that I have read this year were fun, quick reads .. but nothing I would rate a 9 or a 10 on my lifelong list of favorites, lol

I read the Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris a few Nicholas Sparks and Sophie Kinsella books and Kate Jacob's books for example

Jen,


I've got a few of those sitting on my bookshelves. I'm glad that there are some treasures waiting for me. Now I just need to stop reading the new books first and get reading from my shelves.

I hope you enjoy them too! I know it's easy to overlook what you already have on your shelves.
