I don’t often read books that stay with me long past the last page, but when I do I like to share them with others. Some are erotic in nature, some unintentionally naturally erotic. Across genre, these are my absolute favorite recommended reads:
- The Enchantment of Flesh and Spirit
- The Bewitchments of Love and Hate
- The Fulfilments of Fate and Desire
The Autobiography of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein, the best word-crafter, ever, as far as I’m concerned
Caught Looking by Rachel Kramer Bussel, the consummate bad girl next door.
The Book of Obeah by Sandra Carrington-Smith, a modern mystery with deep historic roots.
Best Women’s Erotica 2009 featuring Valeria Alexander’s “Fly,” what I want every fairietale to be.
The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, world-bending for the romantic mind.
The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, contains the most arresting line I’ve ever read in my life.
