Thinking About: Go-to Recommendations

The author features for AAD continue to stack up and get scheduled (Fridays are serious fun for the next few months!) and one of the questions I've asked as a part of the Five Question Quiz started to stand out to me- what books do I recommend most often?

A lot of folks in their responses said it depended on who was doing the asking, and for the most part I think we all do that to an extent, but I find that there are some titles that I recommend over and over again. These books are ones I find myself going to when I'm stuck in a slump or just want what, for me, is a sure thing.

The Iron Duke by Meljean Brook.  I seriously love this book and have it as an audiobook now for my drive times and gym times- who knew the elliptical trainer or sitting in traffic could be that enjoyable?  I love the worldbuilding, I love the characters, I love that it's the start of a series (even though I haven't gotten to Heart of Steel yet- eek!)

The Secret History of the Pink Carnation by Lauren Willig- Even though I'm seriously behind in this series, I love it all the same.  It's funny and romantic and enjoyable and just yum.  As I plan out how to spend my Audible credits in the coming months I may just have to give in and glom up the whole series.

The entire Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews- it actually took me a long time to read these books but once I started my eyes were glued to the pages.  I love Kate and Curran and I'm beyond excited for the spinoff books as well- when I started thinking of what books were releasing in 2012 that really got me excited, Gunmetal Magic beat out the other contenders by a country mile.

The entire Psy-Changeling series by Nalini Singh- having officially taken the top spot as my favorite PNR series, this is a pretty much guaranteed slump-buster for me if I start at the beginning of the series and read the books in order until I feel motivated to read again.  Sure things are a good thing!

What are your go-to recommendations?  It's time to sell me on your favorite books!
