  • Ghosts of Culloden Moor series, by L.L. Muir & others
    An clever series about 79 ghosts of the Battle of Culloden, unable to move on from this world due to their hatred and desire for revenge against Bonnie Prince Charlie. The series begins with The Gathering, which must be read first, and then follows with the individual stories of each man (which can be read in any order). Great for a quick read, and a clean romance series.
  • The Plantagenet/Tudor series by Philippa Gregory
    I could go on and on (and on) about this series. You are probably familiar with the most popular of the series, The Other Boleyn Girl, which was made into a movie starting Natalie Portman or perhaps The White Queen miniseries shown on Starz. A fantastically well-researched, thoughtful and detailed historical fiction series about the defining families of the British monarchy. If you want to start chronologically, The Lady of the Rivers is first. If you’re more interested in the Henry VIII portion, then start at The Constant Princess, the story of Henry and his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. You will not regret this series.
  • Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon
    See my book review for Outlander HERE
    The complete series is up to eight books, with at least more confirmed by Gabaldon. I have only read the first three, and I would recommend them in the same order: Outlander (yes!), Dragonfly (mostly yes), and Voyager (only to find closure from book 2). I loved Outlander, and fell less in love with each sequel. I stopped after I completed the third book, just because it gave me a good place to stop. The story, by the end of book 3, was getting too repetitive for my taste. However, I recommend the first three for sure.
  • The Notebook, by Nicholas Sparks
    Yes this is an old one, but still probably my favorite book. I remember reading this when I was a senior in high school. We had passed it around among my friend group, and every month (as a new person read it) you’d just see someone crying. This one was the first of many of Sparks’ books for me, but always, always my favorite. The story of a lifelong, deep, true love. (Plus it is also an incredible film!) How can anyone resist??
  • A Rose In Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss
    This novel by Woodiwiss is my favorite out of her many novels. A girl sold by her greedy stepfather to a mysterious, deformed Lord. Her heart lies with another, but she is bound by honor to a man who saved her life. Great story and twist. While there are others that Woodiwiss has written worth reading, A Rose In Winter stands out.
