Old Favorites

Sometimes you want to read something new and other times you want to get in the bubble bath with an old favorite.  Here are a few of my old favorites that I've read several times:

Why I love it?  
Harry is a kick butt heroine that can ride a horse.  The world-building is amazing.  The kelar (magic) is original and compelling.  And the romance is subtle. 

Why I love it?
This book was originally published as two books, but combined in this edition.  Mel is hotheaded and impulsive.  She's strong-willed and often makes mistakes, but is essentially goodhearted.  Even though she is small and not a good fighter, she manages to play a key role in a revolution and a rebellion.  

Why I love it?
Even though the main character is naive and makes some mistakes, she is strong and feisty.  And she also happens to be a seer.  How cool is that?  The hero in this is one of my favorites penned in fiction.  

Why I love it?
Coriel is not your typical heroine.  She is the baseborn daughter of a Halsing and she lives with her grandmother who is a wise woman.  Corie's greatest ambition is to be a witch, but every summer she goes to Castle Auburn to spend time with her half sister who is engaged to the prince.  Corie learns so much about herself and others and ultimately risks all to do what is right.  I LOVE the hero, but because it's a twist, I won't name him.  But he is wonderful.  

What are some of your old favorites?  Feel free to share them in the comments.
