Fav Books From The Old Days

Richard Paul Evans was a favorite author of my dear Grandma Merrill. I first read his book The Christmas Box and I fell in love. He is also related to my father-in law, they are cousins.

Many of you may know of Nicholas Sparks--he is a wonderfully romantic author. He has written many of my favorite books. Message in a Bottle, Dear John, The Wedding (my favorite), The Notebook, A Walk to Remember, The Rescue, A Bend in The Road, The Guardian, Nights in Rodanthe, Three Weeks with my Brother, and The Believer. If you want to cry and feel loved, read his books!

Michelle Ashman Bell was one of many LDS authors I loved to read in my teenage years. I also loved to read Rachel Ann Nunes (who I met once), Anita Stansfield and more.

John Grisham was a favorite of mine as well. I read and watched pretty much all of his books. I became very interested in the world of courts and lawyers and judges.

Michael Crichton was an old favorite author of mine. He wrote many great books like "Jurassic Park", "Lost World," and "Timeline." Also one about a poisoned monkey.
