Guest Post: Top 5 Favorite Books by Allison Blanchard

Today we're excited to have Allison Blanchard stopping by to talk about her Top 5 Favorite Books! Allison is the author of Forget Me Not, a paranormal romance set to release on November 15th, 2012. Here's a synopsis:

Cole Dyami is a mysterious boy with a dangerous secret. Adeline Jasely is a typical teenage girl. Living in the seemingly normal small town of Great Falls Montana, Adeline is confronted with everyday teenage problems by a not so normal beautiful boy. 

As Adeline and Cole’s worlds collide, the line between illusion and reality is blurred. According to a tribal legend, Adeline and Cole are no longer two friends, but two pieces in a complicated mystery.

Suddenly, Adeline finds herself in a world she never knew existed. Along side Cole, she attempts to unravel the mysteries of the small Chippewa tribe in order to not only find out who Cole Dyami truly is, but who she is as well.

As Cole and Adeline begin to uncover the secrets behind the legends of the Chippewa tribe, illusion slowly unravels into reality and friendship gradually melts into a mutual need of survival. ~ Courtesy of Goodreads

Top 5 Favorite Books by Allison Blanchard:

My top 5 favorite books of all time?! So hard to actually pinpoint and name my absolute top five favorite books, but I thought it would be fun to accept the challenge and scour through my book shelf to find my absolute favorites.

5. "Old Magic" by Marianne Curley
I think we all know about my unhealthy obsession for this author and her work, but she of couse made it to my top five list. I absolutely adore this novel. It is a young adult paranormal romance that deals with time travel and history. It is so good in every way. If you haven't read it, then you are missing out. Go buy it now. No, but really. Do it.
4. "Pride and Prejudice" by Jane Austen
I am a hardcore Austen fan and I am not ashamed. I love everything about this book and often reread and reread it. Austen does a romance justice and I aspire to be like her. Oh, Jane. If only you were alive today for me stalk.
3. "To Kill A Mockingbird" by Harper Lee
This book literally changed my life and rocked my world. I loved it so much even though I balled like a baby. Harper Lee deals with the issues of racism and culture differences so beautifully. LOVED IT.
2. "A Thousand Splendid Suns" by Khaled Hosseini
Oh. My. Gosh. This novel literally punched me in the face. It was so good. No, but really. This book is insanely well-written that I laughed, cried, laughed again, and cried even more. If you haven't read this beautiful book, then you haven't lived life.
1. "Redeeming Love" by Francine Rivers
I think it's clear that I love Jesus and therefore would like to fall in love with a man who does too. This romance novel showed me that it is possible. Francine Rivers' words and truth of the Gospel changed my perception of true love and what it is all about. I cried throughout this novel, loving the characters and seeing myself in them. This book is a must read for any follower of Christ who is looking for a man to lead her closer to God. Although it is fiction this love story will ignite of flame to know Christ more intimately so that you will be able to perceive the right man from the wrong man. LOVE. THIS. BOOK.
Well there you have it. My favorite books and why everyone should go read them. Like right now. No, but I'm serious.
