Beth..I added a link by mistake. #3 is wrong.
#4 is correct...it is The color of Lightening. Can you fix it? Sorry...Wisteria

I need to see if I read something by them.

Laura @ I'm Booking It 7/2/10, 3:45 AM  

Very cool! I listed one book that is on your list, I'll have to see if I've reviewed any other Harper Perennial Books, and I'll be sure to add more of these to my list :-).

Jenn's Bookshelves 7/2/10, 8:42 AM  

Fantastic idea! I linked one of my reviews!

Louise 7/2/10, 11:42 AM  

I don't know any of the titles, but some of them sounds like great reads. I should definitely check some of them out!

Jenners 7/2/10, 2:27 PM  

I added in my link for "In A Perfect World."

Word Lily 7/2/10, 9:20 PM  

As I thought, I found several Harper Perennial titles in my reviews ...

Hi Beth - I think it is great that you are spotlighting PA authors, I am a fellow PA'er as well!

You don't seem to have Almost Dead on your list, and I think you really must add it! I dubbed it as the The Next Best Book!

ok, going through my site for all the harper perennials I have done so far, working on 5 more by them over the next month too. Hopefully I am doing this right ; )

Beth F 7/6/10, 1:28 PM  

mountie9: thanks, and you are doing everything correctly!

mountie9 7/16/10, 3:13 PM  

Oops just put a HarperCollins one in

Margie 7/19/10, 5:38 PM  

I was so happy to see Moonflower Vine on this list - we rediscovered it at our bookstore in 2009, and it's been very well received by our book clubs ever since. As you can see from my review, I loved it!

Beth F 7/19/10, 5:39 PM  

Mountie9: Oh well, I'll let that one slide. :-)

I knew I have been impressed with Harper perennial's books over the past couple of years, but didn't realize that five of their authors have recently participated in my blog's Book Notes series.

nicole 7/19/10, 11:06 PM  

Just one from me, though in my pre-blog days I read lots more.

Melissa Ward 7/20/10, 12:57 AM  

I've got three so far that I read and reviewed on the blog. I'm still reading "Moonflower Vine" so I should have that one done soon :)

Booksnyc 7/31/10, 3:09 PM  

Just read my first Thrity Urmigar novel and realized it is Harper Perennial. Thanks for hosting this!

Jennifer 8/19/10, 3:16 PM  

I am glad I ran across this. I have several Harper Perennial!

Suzanne Yester 8/28/10, 12:02 PM  

Great idea! Thanks for doing all the work!

mountie9 9/16/10, 9:20 PM  

Double checked this time -- The title I put in is ACTUALLY a HarperPerennial ; )

Lisa Peet 10/8/10, 1:17 PM  

Extraneous link at the end before I figured out the format, sorry. But what a cool aggregation you've got here. Nice work! (Everyone!)

DeeAnna 10/19/10, 1:53 PM  

Bah - Sorry for the extra links. But this is a great idea, and thanks for allowing everyone to share.

John Michael Francisconi 10/19/10, 8:43 PM  

Sorry for the duplicate post. Great post idea!

I posted a review to a Harper Perennial title, Caribou Island, though it should be noted that I listened to an audiobook edition of the title. Still, the substance of the review is in regard to the book itself, with only a small paragraph regarding the narration.

Thanks for stopping by. I read all comments and may respond here, via e-mail, or on your blog. I visit everyone who comments, but not necessarily right away.
