Ann Brashares' six favorite books

Ann Brashares is the author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants. For The Week magazine she named her six favorite books.

One title on the list:
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

For the most part I don’t believe a literal word of it, but it is so voluptuous and blithe in its beauty I can’t get over it. It’s truer than true.

Love in the Time of Cholera also made Marie Arana's list of the best books about love and is one of Hugh Thomson’s top ten books on South American journeys.
