12 Out of Africa by Karen Blixen
11 Angels and Demons by Dan Brown
10 Quentins by Maeve Binchy
9 The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
I have spoken about this book several times on the blog (if you haven't read it you REALLY should). One of the most memorable things (among many) was the detailed AMAZING descriptions Kostova goes through to make the setting in the novel real. Turkey was one of the places the Heroine travels to and I was left with a yearning to visit it because of the way that she wrote about Turkey and it's history. Brilliant book and the descriptive and vivid way in which Kostova wrote about Turkey is one among the many praises I have for this book.
