I saw this over at Shelley’s, and thought it sounded like a great question for all of you:
“This can be a quick one. Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.”
Okay, so 15 books that will always stick with me...I guess it doesn't matter WHY they stick with me huh? Some are just good memories of times spent reading them or they might be just a really great book that I will always remember and recommend to others. So here goes!
- Frederick by Leo Lionni. My very favorite book as a child.
- The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis. I've read this countless times.
- To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. This one get such mixed reviews, I think that I just read it at the right time in my life.
- Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. I was very imaginative as a child and I think that this one really fed that.
- The Diary of Anne Frank
- all the Harry Potter books by JK Rowling. Such a great story.
- The Wind in the Willows.
- Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. LOVE it.
- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
- Night by Elie Weisel
- They Poured Fire on Us From the Sky
- Marley and Me by John Grogan
- The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
- Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi. I haven't finished this one yet (about 50 pages left) but it's such a great memoir and it's in graphic novel form so I know that it will stick with me for a while.
So there it is! What are some books that will always stick with you?
