Your List of Recommended Authors and Favorite Reads

Hi Everyone-
As promised, here's a list of all your recommended reads and favorite authors that we discussed over the last couple of weeks. At the end are some of your favorite reads from 2009. This blog will stay up for months, so when you run of out of books to read, you can come back and get more recommendations.
Big hugs and a very special thank you to Jackie P. who worked so hard to put this list together for us.
And again, thank you all for the support you've given me this year. Because of wonderful readers like you, there are six more Last Chance Rescue books headed your way!
Happy New Year and I hope that 2010 is exactly what you want it to be!

I just noticed that some of the titles and authors have some kind of weird looking letters in them. Sorry about that! If there's one you can't figure out, let me know and I'll go back and look at my clean copy and let you know what it is.

Mary G said...

Thnaks for the list Christy & Jackie P. Just one thing. It's NJ Walters, not WJ Walters. It would be a shame if she got missed cause she's awesome.

Ida Brugler said...

Christy & Jackie Thank you So much the list is great!


Got to go get ready for everyone tonight. more baking *sigh*. I'm tired no sillys yet today!

Christy Reece said...

Thanks Mary, I think I got that fixed. If anyone else sees something off (besides the weird lettering in places) please let me know.

Christy Reece said...

Ida, you're very welcome. Hope you get to rest a bit between baking.

oklanannie said...

Great list! Thanks to Christy and Jackie P. for putting this together for all of us. It's been fun and I can't wait to see what CHANCEs come along early in 2010!

Gotta run & start the black-eyed peas for tomorrow's "Good Luck" festivities. And Saturday, my Oklahoma State Cowboys meet Ole Miss in the Cotton Bowl. Hope we start the new year off right with a win!

Happy New Year everyone!

Christy Reece said...

Oklanannie, enjoy those black-eyed peas! That's a tradition for us also, along with corned beef and cabbage and turnip greens. I think the black-eyed peas are for luck and the turnip greens are for money, but not sure what the corned beef and cabbage signify other than good eating. (:

Happy New Year!

Ida Brugler said...

checking off list.....

Had a couple cups of coffee feeling better.. Should not have stayed online at the Sancturary party till 3:30 this morning..

Thanks Christy but my son's birthday tomorow. So i usually get to rest on the 2nd...LOL

Jackie P said...

Your welcome ya'll. Mary G thanks, some of the authors I didn't know or what the correct spelling was of their name. Any mistakes are mine because I tried to look up if there were different spellings. I have read 4 of the books everyone recommended and they have all been great. Thanks Christy for starting this. I have met some of the nicest people and have gotten some of the best recommendations on books.

Kara C said...

Thank you to both Christy and Jackie for the great list. I've already read a couple of the books that were posted, and they were great.
BTW Christy, my son said maybe I shouldn't 'hang out with your book buddies anymore'. Seems I've turned into something of a crybaby. lol Two books AND an episode of CM left me in tears. He is so not impressed. =)
Back to school for this household on Monday. Hope everyone has a fantastic week.

Christy Reece said...

Jackie, I'm so glad you're finding some good reads too! And I totally agree. Lots of nice people post here. Including you! (:

Christy Reece said...

LOL. Just tell your son you're just really enjoying the books and that's why you're crying. I know Sweet Baby made you cry. Was the other one Cry No More? Which CM made you cry?

For those of you who don't know, Kara and I are addicted to the television show Criminal Minds. If you're on Facebook, feel free to stop by and chat with us. We're always up for a CM discussion.

Kara C said...

Yes, Christy, it was Cry No More. Interesting name for the book since I can still cry just thinking about it!
My boys got B&N gift cards from my brother during our after Christmas family gathering. I've been trying to talk them out of them. So far, no luck. :)

Marie Force said...

Thanks for including Line of Scrimmage on your list!

Heidi Betts said...

Thanks so much for the mention, Christy! I've never done one of these lists at my blog, but I totally should!

And you should come by WIPs and Chains some time to guest blog, we'd love to have you! We'll try to schedule something, okay? ;-)

Christy Reece said...

Hey Marie, I've heard fabulous things about your books! Hope you get some new readers from here.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Happy New Year!

Christy Reece said...

Hey Heidi, thanks so much for stopping by. I've heard great things about your books! Hope you get some new readers from this blog.

And I would love to blog over at WIPs and Chains. Thanks so much for asking!

Happy New Year!

Marie Force said...

Thanks Christy. Happy New Year!

Modokker said...

Oh great list! I am a huge fan of Julie Garwood. I'm waiting for the library to get Sizzle so i can read it. I love the Buchanan series.
