What book have you read multiple times? Features Terry Tyler’s Favourite reads.

So continuing on with the ever popular “What book have you read multiple times?” post.

Author Terry Tyler laments not having enough time to go back to her favourite books, but here are some she has re-read loads of times.

Terry says;

I really don’t get enough time to re-visit old favourites, but I’ve read Jilly Cooper’s Harriet, Prudence, Emily, Octavia, Bella and Imogen SO many times! Other over and over again ones: Cashelmara and Penmarric by Susan Howatch, The Job and The Big Picture by Douglas Kennedy, Jackie Collins’ Chances, Lovers & Gamblers and Hollywood Wives, A Handful of Dust by Evelyn Waugh, Something in Disguise by Elizabeth Jane Howard, Final Demand by Deborah Moggach, Life At The Top and Room At the Top by John Braine, and a big all time over and over again favourite is All The Days of my Life by Hilary Bailey. Oh, and Norah Lofts’ historical trilogies, and the Narnia books – I would FORCE any of those books on anyone who gave me the slightest chance, and have read them all many, many times!

Two of these from the list are; Cashelmara by Susan Howatch – brilliant family saga set in the 19th century, much about the potato famine in Ireland.

All the Days of my Life by Hilary Bailey – goes from WW2 to 1980s, about a girl who is being watched by those in power for a reason she knows nothing about.

  1. Your blog is great! I was hoping you could visit my blog and have a read of my latest post as I’m new to blogging?


  2. Cathy, glad you liked Cashelmara too! Rosie, thanks so much for featuring my choices ~ I should have offered to make it all read better, so you didn’t have to just feature my blog comment and email scribbles! Anyway – if I can pass on a good book to just one person I’m happy; it’s what it’s all about, isn’t it! xx


    • Noelle, it’s brilliant – and will make you want to read more of Susan Howatch’s books! Be careful, though, as her earlier ones were published after she became successful and aren’t very good (you know all those novels we wrote before we knew what we were doing!!!) and after ‘Wheel of Fortune’ she ‘got religion’ and the rest are all boringly centred round the intricacies of theology. But Penamarric, Wheel of FOrtune, The Rich are different and Sins of the Father are spellbinding, and I’ve read them ALL over and over.
