Musing Mondays (Feb.13)
What is your favorite romantic book –or book that includes a love story? (an adult romance, young adult, kids’ story, anything)
My favorite love story is probably still –sad to say– the “Twilight” saga by Stephenie Meyer. I never thought I’d enjoy a book about vampires, but the love story between Bella and Edward caught me from the get-go, and I enjoyed the “triangle” with Jacob that was thrown in there. I’ve seen all the movies, and I own both the hardcover and the mass-market paperback editions of the series. No, I’m not a crazed fan who has posters and all the other paraphernalia. I have no t-shirts, and I don’t wait in long lines for any of the stuff they’ve put out. But, I really enjoyed this book series. I’m itching to re-read it, and that’s saying something… I don’t often re-read things.
Mind you, this was a hard choice, as I also love “The Moon Below” by Barbara Bickmore. The story is of Hallie, a nearly-twenty-something girl who is going off to Australia to marry a man she’s only met once in the past, and her chance meeting with the prisoner, Tristan, on the boat over from England to the colony. Tristan is a doctor, and once they land in Australia, Hallie can’t seem to keep from seeking him out. Another love-triangle type of story, but I loved it. I’ve read the book twice, and will probably read it again, too!
