  1. May I ask for a copy of your Jude Devereaux – The Invitation. I am lacking this book in the series. I already have The Invitation (The Matchmakers). Thank you

  2. wow! that’s a lot of books! 🙂
    i hope you dont’ mind me aking for a copy of the conquest by jude devereax. i’d really appreciate it. thanks

  3. hii you have alot of collection. i also hope you dont’ mind me aking for a copy of the conquest by jude devereax. i really really appreciate it. thank you so much

  4. You should read Looking for Alaska, or An Abundance of Katherines. They’re both by John Green, a current young adult author. Looking for Alaska won the Gold Printz Award, and An Abundance of Katherines won the Silver Printz Award. He is also in the process of publishing a new book, Paper Towns, which I think hits bookshelves in October.

  5. Nope, unfortunately, no Tolkein. I’ve read The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, but that’s about the extent of my C.S. Lewis.

    I have trouble getting into fantasy, but then I don’t know how to explain reading Harry Potter. I guess a little fantasy is okay as long as it’s grounded in reality. Generally, I’m not much for hobbits, fairies, make-believe Kingdoms, etc…
    Guess it’s just personal preference.

  6. Hello, I am impressed!

    Is it possible to have a copy of “the maiden” by Jude?

    Many thanks


  7. hello!! nice collection….can I also have a copy of The Maiden by Jude Deveraux? pls….. thanks in advance….. n_n

  9. On your young adult book list it only says The Amber Spyglass. Did you not read the first two of the series?

  10. Kat:
    No, I only read The Amber Spyglass. Since it was way out of order, I had trouble (just a tad) of piecing together what was going on and alas, I never picked up the first two. Maybe one day.

  11. Yes, it can get vey confusing without knowing what was going on before. And if you have the time, I thought the books were definatly worth my time.

  12. Wow, that’s an incredibly detailed list. In 9th grade I started keeping track of all the books I was reading, mostly because I could never remember titles of book I read in the past, but this is really impressive. =) Its really cool how you split everything up into categories.

  13. Hi, I just discovered your site (I have a lot of free time on my hands at work). I love anything with booklists and novel-casting! I have notebooks full of the books I’ve read since 7th grade (I’m 25 now). And if you want to compete for nerd-dom, I tally up my pages at the end of each month. Anyway, if you haven’t, and I’m sure you have, check out It’s a great way to keep track of your books! Happy reading!

  14. Wow, if only I were so organized. I tried keeping lists when I was in high school but was always bad about updating. Now I just blog about the books I read and what I thought about them. I haven’t added books I’ve read in the past though. I am trying Shelfari like someone else mentioned. We’ll see how that goes.

  15. wow!impressive!i didn’t look too carefully, but have you read sense and sensibility-jane austen?VERY GOOD BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    im trying to read merchant of venice at the moment-and struggling!
    Rock on!

  16. Hi! Coould you give me a copy of Eternity and Wishes by Jude Deveraux? Please Please!

    Thank you! Thanks so much in advance!

  17. hi, can you please send me a copy of jude deveraux “eternity” on my email… if you dont mind

  18. How did you comprise this list? I was trying to build one yesterday and I just felt like I was missing sooo much of what I read? Is this just the main ones or what you could think of?

  19. Wendy:

    I have a good memory and I’ve been keeping a list since I was 17. Of course, back then, the list was organized according to the school year and summer vacation. This list is not updated. I haven’t added ’08, ’09, and ’10 books.

  20. Hi I’m Casey I I’m in 7th grade I just finished reading the 3 book in the fablehaven books. It was really good I you haven’t read it yet 🙂 I also liked the giver
    Heartlight ( this is my fav book in the world)
    The lovely bones

    Want to read
    Dead until dark
    City of bones
    The next 2 books in fablehaven
    I have a whole list but it got lost lol I will try to find it. Please email me at

  21. Impressive website – so much information for the connoisseur fiction afficionado.

    p.s. A word of advice based on experience…never lend your books, unless you’re not fussed as to whether you ever see them again.

  22. Have you read “Mara, Daughter of the Nile,” by Eloise Jarvie McGraw ? I highly recommend and think you will love it.
