The Question:

What books would you give to newbies in your favorite genre? via Take Me Away…

My Answer: 

I blame it all on my mother that my favorite genre is romance. I really do, and it’s not because I grew up seeing romance in action or was taught along that line of romantic notions. It’s simply because my mom is a romance reader, and in the summers that’s all I had, so I became a voracious romance reader at age 12. 

These are the ones I would give newbies! 


Wild Bells to the Wild Sky by Laurie McBain

I fell in love with this book not so much because of the romance, but because of the amazing storytelling that Laurie McBain exhibits in this book. I find it amazing and fascinating each time I read it again. It’s an adventure that errs on the side of danger, unknown to many involved until some of the last possible moments. 



Outlander by Diana Gabaldon

How could I not include this one? It is one of the best love stories I have ever read. It can seem like a daunting read, but the story just unravels before your very eyes. It is hard not to get sucked in. 

“I will find you,” he whispered in my ear. “I promise. If I must endure two hundred years of purgatory, two hundred years without you – then that is my punishment, which I have earned for my crimes.”




 Shadows of Asphodel by Karen Kincy

This is a steampunk/romance. I loved it from the get-go. It is an incredible story. I loved each of the character’s stories and how they came together through a crazy set of circumstances. 


These are just a few of the ones I’d start a newbie out with! 

Which books from your favorite genre would you recommend to newbies? Leave me a comment with your response and your Friday Follow.
