Lise has been with us since… holy moly, I’m thinking almost the VERY start (at least of my indie-discovering days). LOL!!! And she has that same love for hardcore, mind-blowing, intense, unconventional love stories, that we do. If Lise loves it, I know I will, too. It’s that simple. ;)

And just take a look at her top five. This one is short and sweet, ’cause she’s uncompromising like that. *snort* :P ;)

1.) Badger by C.M. McKenna <— “Favorite book I read in 2015… Wow, just wow. Speechless and in awe… Amazing piece of writing! Ms. McKenna is AMAZING and this one (Badger) is phenomenal. Gah… I need my HUG. …I have been loving my most recent 5 star reads but this one is in a league of its own :-)

2.) Jezebel by K. Larsen is #2 <— “I hope this encourages our fellow readers to take on this awesome experience. I read it weeks ago and still think about it…”

3.) Because of Ellison by M.S. Willis is #3.

4.) The Paper Swan by Leylah Attar <— “…love the way this author tells a story, love every feel in this book. 5 4 3 2 1… go read it, people ;-)” #4

5.) Give Me Your Answer True (The Fish Tales Book 2) by Suanne Laqueur #5

So you are Maryse’s book twin. *grins* The only one she didn’t add to hers was Because of Ellison, probably because she didn’t read it.

*sets up a blankie fort and finds Manny* Alright, I’m ready for all of you about to read that one. The fort is prepared for you!

Only read Badger on this list. But I gave all the others there on my kindle taunting me.
Love that Lise is uncompromising and decisive. Five books!! Wow. I faffed around with so many I couldn’t choose between and still had an honorable mentions list!!
But ya know….I’ve said it before… I’d happily read a cereal box if the right author wrote it :)

* Dammit…I have all the others!

Great list btw.

Lose, those are all intense reads. No wonder they all hit your favorites list.

I love this short list! It didn’t give me anxiety! Lol! And I’ve read 3 out of 5…..Because of Ellison and Your Answer True are both on my Kindle waiting for me!

Numbers 3 and 5 are new to me. The others, I totally agree – amazing books. A list I can handle – just two to add to my TBR. Thanks!

Aww.. thanks, Maryse for posting my list. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be your book friend for so many years. You have inspired and encouraged me to rekindle my love of reading. I found you in the beginning of 2012, when you had less than 300 facebook likes. Been with ya ever since and even in person at the first Book Bash. Hugs and Kisses XOXOXO <3 :-)

I admire that you can edit it down to five and be so decisive.
And…..I have read none of these, lol.
I do have The Paper Swan in my tbr.
Tessa is right, you are Maryse’s twin.

Maryse January 8, 2016 at 9:59 AM

Twinsies!!!! :D Guess I have to read the only one that I haven’t read yet. ;) It’s a given.

Maryse January 8, 2016 at 10:02 AM

*big hugs and kisses* <3 :D

Thanks so much, Lise!!! <3
