Pride and Prejudice
By Jane Austen
For the pure love of romantic comedy--Austen is the master, plus she shattered cultural norms.
I adore the whole series, the world she built, the characters she created, but there is just something really wonderful about the third book. The story is so complex, yet underscores a simple truth: how a young boy is yearning for his family.
One of the better modern-day fantasy authors.
I've always been fascinated with the War of the Roses in British History. This series breathes life into the women who lived and died in that treacherous time. My medieval romance, The Entangled Princess, is set in such a time with the same kinds of political intrigue and danger.
Heartbreaking and helped me understand cultural bias. Plus, Atticus Finch is one of the all-time great heroes in American literature.
Life-altering--I learned to follow my heart, like Jane.
