Lily's Book List
Lily Hunter is an aspiring writer with two degrees and a third on the way. Reading and writing have been part of her life since she was quite small; she earned two degrees in English before moving to Columbia to pursue a Master of Arts in Library Science. Bookshops have always been a place for her to relax, and she enjoys nothing more than talking about books with those who love them just as much as she does. If you want her to like you, give her books or chocolate. Her favorite genres include Historical Fiction, Science Fiction, Fantasy, history, books about music, and cookbooks. She also has a cat named Gary to go with her books, chocolate, and nightly cups of chamomile tea.
A beautifully written, sweeping romance complete with time travel, an intelligent doctor, and a gorgeous Scottish man named Jamie Frasier.
A fantasy series with strong characters, detailed worlds, and conflicts galore.
Everyone immediately goes right to Pride and Prejudice, but this often overlooked book is an intense story of a couple who gets a second chance after a failed first attempt at love.
I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's an epic story spanning decades and two wars; at the center is a fractured family with no choice but to come back together.
A coming of age novel about a young girl who grows up amid a poorer section of Brooklyn. She learns to navigate her relationships with her family, financial woes, her desire for education, and romance in this book.
The tale of a young woman's journey to find her mother while being chased by vampiric murderers. This book has personal significance for me and I love this author.
A Frightening but necessary read about how we got to where we are today.
If you're tired of waiting for Outlander and want to dive into a rich tale of time travel in Italy, pick this book. The details are lush and beautiful.
A man takes on the question of what would have happened if JFK never died. Stephen King is great at horror, but he's better at understanding what it means to be human, and this book is the prime example.
If you like dark mansions and mysterious inhabitants, dark hallways and sexual tension, this is the book for you. This book is based on Gothic novels, such as the ones Jane Austen referenced in Northanger Abbey, and is a suspenseful and hilarious read.
