30 Day Book Meme (2)

Day 2: A book you've read more than 3 times.

This was not that hard to answer because there is only one book I've read more than 3 times because I usually don't re-read books (even if I love them) because I feel like there are so many books I want to read and not enough time to read them.

With that being said, the book I've read more than 3 times is....

 Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, please know that this is not a young adult title but an adult novel.

I'm going to give you the synopsis then I am going to tell you why I've read it more than 3 times. 

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives. (Goodreads)

This is the first book in an amazing historical fiction/romance series entitled Outlander. There are 7 books so far with the 8th coming out *crosses fingers* next year. For me this book is an epic love story. It wasn't necessarily that I connected on a personal level with the main character, Claire, but I found that I enjoy the way that Diana Gabaldon writes. She has a wonderful way of telling a story and I find myself transported every time I read this book. Jamie Fraser, the hero of the story, is a very in depth character. He is also a swoon worthy lead. There is action, adventure, danger, betrayal, love, romance, and history. Everything that is great about books are all pieced together in this book.
