Feature & Follow Friday (9): Books I want to read again for the “first time”

 

FF_2013Button

 

An awesome idea to make friends in the blogosphere, Feature & Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee Alison Can Read. It’s a great opportunity to find and follow new blogs. You hop from one to the another participating blog, say hi, follow them and they follow you back. It’s a win-win situation.

Every week, they feature bloggers on their sites and we get to learn more about them as they answer some questions. Each week also features a question that we can share our answers to.

 

Question of the week:

If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?

 

I’ve pondered on this question a long time now. ^__^ And whenever I get to read a really, really good book and I finish it already I sometimes wish that I could read it again, not as a re-read but as a first-time read. While the question is really asking for a book, I have to say that this would simply be impossible for me. So allow me to take a little liberty and list my top books that I wish I could read all over again for the very first time.

The Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner

I want to experience Megan Whalen Turner’s magic as she winds and twists and just expertly lays down the incredible plot that is this whole series. I want that wonderful feelings as the story progresses and then unravels, the mystery and the discoveries, and I want to meet her characters again for the first time.

Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

I sort of grew up with this series. I couldn’t imagine my younger years without having read these amazing books. And although re-reading them is fun (my cousin actually makes it a point to re-read the whole series every year, which is really commendable might I add), experiencing these 7 books again for the first time will be magical in its own way.

Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh

I can’t gush enough about how much I love and adore Nalini’s Psy-Changeling series or how much I am a fan of her genius writing. She takes world-building and story-telling to new levels. I can’t think of enough superlatives to describe the awesomeness that is this series.

Book Blurb:

After eight years in prison, twenty-four year old Jordan Kane is the man everyone loves to hate.

Forced to return to his hometown while on parole, Jordan soon learns that this small town hasn’t changed since he was carted off to juvie all those years ago. He is the local pariah, shunned by everyone, including his own parents. But their hatred of him doesn’t even come close to the loathing he feels every time he looks in the mirror.

Working odd jobs for the preacher lady, Jordan bides his time before he can leave this backwards town. But can distance erase the memories that haunt him? Trapped in the prison of his own mind Jordan wonders if the pain of living will ever subside?

Torrey Delaney is new in town and certainly doesn’t behave in a way the locals believe a preacher’s daughter should. Her reputation for casual hook-ups and meaningless sex is the talk of the town. Add that to her budding friendship with the hardened ex-con handyman, and the good Reverend is less than thrilled with her estranged daughter’s path.

As friendship forms, is it possible for two damaged people who are afraid to love take their relationship to the next level? Can Torrey live with Jordan’s demons, and can Jordan break through Torrey’s walls? With the disapproval of a small town weighing heavily on them, will they find their place in the world? Can they struggle against the odds, or will their world be viciously shattered?

Is love a life sentence?

Book Blurb: ALMOST MATCHED (Book 1)

Would you take another shot at love? Or just settle on a friend with benefits?

THEIR HEARTBREAKING PAST WILL MOVE YOU. THEIR PASSION WILL MAKE YOU BLUSH. THEIR ANTICS WILL MAKE YOU LAUGH OUT LOUD.

Twenty-five-year-old Natalie Davenport lugs substantial baggage. One boyfriend after the next has been a total disaster, leaving Natalie distrustful toward the male population in general. So when Colin Hampton crosses her path, she’s cautious. Her heart (and some other body parts!) nudges her to go for it, while her head wants her to run for the hills.

Colin is one of those gorgeous guys who attract women, no matter the age or marital status. With a successful career at a popular Seattle radio station, hard body, and charming personality, he is the complete package. But something dark lurks in the corners of his soul; some murky experience that has changed him—maybe for the better, but maybe for the worse.

Will he steal her heart and stomp over it like other guys did?

Will she let him into her heavily fortified world despite herself?

Or will they settle somewhere in the middle—establishing the emotional boundaries to protect them from falling in love?
