Guest Post and Blog Tour: The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy

It seems like it's been forever since we've had a guest post on Momma Romance so when I was asked to do the blog tour for The Hazards of Skinny Dipping by Alyssa Rose Ivy I figured a guest post was in order!  I asked Alyssa what her 5 favorite books were.....see below for her post!

This isn't a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I'd be happy to recommend one, but I don't have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed. It's the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again. Oh, and it's also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along.
Alyssa Rose Ivy's 5 favorite books:

Moby Dick by Herman Melville
I fell in love with this book in High School. It was just one of those books that really got under my skin. Melville captures obsession like no one else.  You feel the emotion even though it's a book that takes place almost entirely on a whaling ship. It’s one of those books I’ve reread a lot.

 Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen  
I will never get tired of reading about Elizabeth and Darcy. I'm a huge Jane Austen fan, and this is my favorite of hers. The characters are just so real—and it’s a classic story that so many other books and movies are based off of.

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
I love this entire series. I love the fantasy, and the brother-sister relationship. I also love how Brandon Mull ties together the whole series. He’s so good at dropping little hints that make complete sense later on.

Flat-out love by Jessica Park
This is my favorite New Adult book. I read it right when it was released, and it was one of the books that inspired me to try writing in the NA category. A fantastic twist and characters that leap off the page make this a must read.

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
More than any other book, this one made me fall in love with the art of storytelling and fantasy. My father used to make up stories based on it, and I read it myself as soon as I could. I love the world building and it’s such a good adventure.
