  1. If I had to make a top 5 list, I think my favorites have been (not in order)
    Curious Incident
    Time Traveler’s Wife
    Pope Joan
    Red Tent
    Nickel & Dimed
    But that is only if I absolutely had to… Lisa

  2. Okay, Girl with a Pearl Earring is really up there for me. It made me realize how much I love historical fiction, which helped me find some other books I loved. I have since read the rest of Chevalier’s books and they are all gems.

    also loved:
    The Twentieth Wife
    The Time Traveler’s Wife
    Bel Canto

    miss you all!

  3. while we are listing our favorites…
    Pope Joan
    Perfume
    Confessions of an Economic Hitman
    Mary Called Magdalene
    Our Lady of Lost and Found
    Wicked
    Under the Banner of Heaven

    Oh, there really are too many to choose from.
