This is the first book I remember reading as a 16 year old. I have to say my tastes have changed. When I was a teenager, I loved to read gothic novels. Penmarric had a impact, because I can remember it was a 700 page novel. Since, then I loved to read romance. But, luckily my tastes have changed to literary style novels. During that time, I would read Victoria Holt, Susan Howatch, and other gothic, victorian romance novels, then I switched to romance. Now, I look at a Harlequin, or Danielle Steel with distate. How I read those novels back then.
Here is a bio on Susan Howatch : a British novelist, has given the world some great books over the past 30+ years.
First there were her family sagas: Penmarric, Cashelmara, The Rich are Different, Sins of the Fathers, The Wheel of Fortune.
Random House, also asked what was your first novel as a child you can remember. Did you like or not like the book? I remember reading, Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farms. What a wholesome book.
But, my two favorites were Charlotte's Web, and Pippy Longstockings.
As a young child, I remember Snowy Day as one of my favorite picture books.
What do you remember reading? any favorites? as a child, or as a adolescent?
Happy Reading, leave your comments. Would love to know.
