Throwback Thursday 2.6.14

Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by Christina @Booksane and Stephanie @Bookfever where you feature books that you've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

Book pick this week: 

I read this a couple years ago when it first came out and loved it! I would really like to re-read some of Jodi Picoult's books because I love them all so much but haven't read any in a while. It's probably going to be between this one and The Pact for my next re-read. 


Things break all the time.
Day breaks, waves break, voices break.
Promises break.
Hearts break.
Every expectant parent will tell you that they don't want a perfect baby, just a healthy one. Charlotte and Sean O'Keefe would have asked for a healthy baby, too, if they'd been given the choice. Instead, their lives are made up of sleepless nights, mounting bills, the pitying stares of "luckier" parents, and maybe worst of all, the what-ifs. What if their child had been born healthy? But it's all worth it because Willow is, well, funny as it seems, perfect. She's smart as a whip, on her way to being as pretty as her mother, kind, brave, and for a five-year-old an unexpectedly deep source of wisdom. Willow is Willow, in sickness and in health. 

Everything changes, though, after a series of events forces Charlotte and her husband to confront the most serious what-ifs of all. What if Charlotte should have known earlier of Willow's illness? What if things could have been different? What if their beloved Willow had never been born? To do Willow justice, Charlotte must ask herself these questions and one more. What constitutes a valuable life? 

Emotionally riveting and profoundly moving, Handle with Care brings us into the heart of a family bound by an incredible burden, a desperate will to keep their ties from breaking, and, ultimately, a powerful capacity for love. Written with the grace and wisdom she's become famous for, beloved #1 New York Times bestselling author Jodi Picoult offers us an unforgettable novel about the fragility of life and the lengths we will go to protect it.

Question: Who are your top 5 favorite authors? 
(in no particular order)

1. Nicholas Sparks - He is such a talented writer! I read everything he writes, and always love it! I love that a guy can write such amazing love stories.
2. James Patterson - Up until about two years ago, I never read anything by Patterson. Now, I can't get enough of his work! Whether its the mysteries or romances, they're so good! 
3. Jodi Picoult - Words can't describe how much I love her books and the issues she tackles. I think its incredibly brave to take on these issues because some are so controversial. But I think everything she writes is amazing. The Pact got me hooked and I really need to reread it again soon. 
4. Erin Morgenstern - The Night Circus is one of my absolute favorite books ever. Its the only thing she's published so far, but I can't wait to see what she has for the future!
5. Sandra Brown - one of the first authors (other than JK Rowling and HP) that got me hooked on reading. I used to gobble up her romance novels like they were chocolate. I still love all of her work and I think her romantic suspense novels are equally as wonderful!

What about you? Do you have a book you read a while ago, but really love it, and want to showcase it?!
