  1. I don't really think I have a particular favorite one. The ones I love the most have great characters and character interaction as well as being a well-written story.

  6. It's hard to choose favourites among my historical books; but I can say Lauren Willig's Pink Carnation series and Charlie Cochrane's Cambridge Fellows Mysteries are among them as they mixed the historical and sleuthing with a touch of humour, then there's also Marsha Canham's Highland trilogy that broke my heart yet I loved so much, and Julia Quinn's oh almost every books, and many more!! See, hard to choose. :)

  39. I don't know that I have one... all I can think of is A Tale of Two Cities :)

  40. I, Claudius is a fantastic read. I love it. It's about the politics and family squabbles of several Roman emperors and their inner circles: Augustus, Tiberius, and Caligula. It's got intrigue, conspiracy, backstabbing, murders, affairs, and wild reversals of fortune, all described in delightfully gossipy fashion by the historian Claudius. Game of Thrones fans are likely to enjoy it (and the sequel).
