Top 100 Favorite Books

In honor of our 100th blog post, Stephanie and I have created a combined list of 100 of our favorite books (in alphabetical order). Since there are several series that we liked we included the series name in parentheses, but only listed the first book in the series. So if you see parentheses, then we highly recommend that you read the entire series by that author.

Also, in case you hadn't noticed, we decided to update the look of our blog. Plus we added a search button on the side for you to search our blog. Let us know what you think.

We have already posted reviews for several of the books on our list in the past. For those books we have included the link to our reviews. If we haven't written a review for a book on this list yet, we will strive to accomplish that over the next year. Please take time to check out this list and hopefully we can add a few of our favorites to your personal favorite list. Happy Reading!!!
