Reading Challenge - Book 14

A mass-market paperback from 1985. I probably shouldn't have been old enough to read this when it first came out ;)

The book I chose for my 'popular author's first book' was Danielle Steel's Passion's Promise. As expected, it was a little faster read than the last book I read, and I was a little more engaged with the characters.

I purposely picked a Danielle Steel book because she tends to write high-fashion or richy-rich stuff in my experience. Which is to say, far from MY experience. LOL

I enjoyed reading about Kezia's life, and even her heartbreak, where she apparently did absolutely nothing but travel the world for months. I can only imagine. ;)

If you're looking for a fun beach or summer read and haven't stumbled across this old classic, it was a fun read.

This cracks me up, I used to steal my mom's Harlequins, mostly because I read everything I could get my hands on, but it probably explains why I am a hopeless romantic, lol. I've never read a Danielle Steel before.

Ha. I've heard of her stuff but never read it. To travel the world is so hard! :P

I know her books are very popular. I personally haven't read one, but people love them.

My mom read those books when I was a kid. Haven't seen that author's name in a long time.

I've read many of her books. That one looks like something I picked up in my 20's at the book exchange store!

One great classic book to read for sure. Many will find this interesting. As for me, I have to know more info about the author.
