A good book

When you're studying for an exam and reading a lot of different texts it's not easy to find the time or energy to read anything else... I miss cuddling up under a blanket with a cup of tea in my hands & reading a really good book just for the pleasure of it. And especially around this time of the year, since fall is the best season for reading in my opinion :-)
But I'll have more time to read other things as soon as this exam is over & I can't wait for Christmas. I'll probably spend a lot of time reading during the holidays, which I'm looking forward to. And that's why I'm trying to come up with some good books to buy for myself & to put on my wishlist.

Here's some of my favorite books:
- Anything from the Hanna Swensen Mysteries by Joanne Fluke
- Chocolate Beach by Julie Carobini
- Restoring Grace by Katie Fforde
- Anybody out there? by Marian Keyes
- Christmas from the heart of the home by Susan Branch
- Heart of the home - Notes from a Vineyard Kitchen by Susan Branch

These books are on my wishlist at the moment:
- Cherry Cheesecake Murder by Joanne Fluke
- Key Lime Pie Murder by Joanne Fluke
- Vineyard season by Susan Branch

Do you have any favorites to share with me? And what's on your wishlist?

Oh gosh, I haven't read a book for an age!

I love David & Leigh Eddings though, and will read their books in one sitting if I can.
The last book I read was HP & the Deathly Hallows - really enjoyed it.

Of course anything domestic is good and I am going to check out the Susan Branch books as they sound intriguing.

Good luck with your exams!

The exams will be over soon enough, and you'll have time to rest and recuperate, reading books to your hearts content.
Your list looks interesting, and I must check some of these out.

The last novel I read was A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini, and I am hoping to read The Kite Runner by the same author soon, it's just finding the time.

Lot's of books I'd love to read!

Good luck with the studying, and I'm sure you'll do excellent in the exams.
