There are just some books that I refuse to part with...like trusty friends and comfort food, I can always turn to them in times of trouble. I know which one I need based on the mood I am experiencing at that particular moment. I am going to date myself a bit here, but what the heck!
Perfect by Judith McNaught is one of my earliest romance novel reading memories. I caress the worn cover tenderly and seek out my favorite scenes when I yearn for simpler times.
Outlander by Diana Galbadon is the book I grab when I need some adventure and the resulting appreciation of my "less-complicated-than-Claire's-life" sigh of relief.
I reach for Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series when I need a snappy, smart-ass, take no prisoners jolt out of my suburban wife and mother doldrums.
Charm School by Susan Wiggs always reminds me that it is never to late to change and embrace the person you want to be.
Kelly Arden at Romance Roundtable has another great list organized by storylines. Check it out for inspiration!
