    all time favorite hum i will say the hob bargain by Patricia Briggs

    ReplyDelete
  5. the Princess Bride by William Goldman, Persuasion by Jane Austen and Perfume by Patrick Suskind.

    They all start with the letter P.... maybe that's a sign.

    I also wanted to say that I loved Jurassic Park too.. it's one of the few books that I've read after I've seen the movie... and the rule of the book always being better than the film definitely applies in that situation.
