What's your favorite book? - May 8th 2016, 05:21 AM

Haven't posted a thread here in a bit. But, what are your top five favorite books? This is the hardest question for me to answer but for me:

Bitten Kelley Armstrong
Lucky by Alice sebold (it's a memoir about her rape)
The lovely bones by Alice Sebold
To kill a mockingbird by Harper Lee
Most Jodi picture books but my sisters keeper was my favorite.

So, anyone else? It's pretty hard and I think sometimes they will change but the first four are almost always the same.

Asking For It by Louise O'Neill. I wouldn't advise anyone who's prone to being triggered to read it because it deals VERY strongly with sensitive topics like sexual assault and rape culture, and the author leaves nothing out. But it's such an important book and I think as many people as possible should read it. A big reason I enjoyed it is because it was very much a book about problematic aspects of Irish society which no one here really questions, and I just think it was very thought-provoking for a lot of people who needed to rethink the way they see things.

Honourable mentions: Every Day by David Levithan, To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee (again), Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë. Also, John Green's books are guilty pleasures of mine to be honest.

Carry On by Rainbow Rowell (a lot like Harry Potter. I just read it and it's great)
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Niel Gaiman's short story books (the two I can think of are Smoke and Mirrors and Trigger Warning)
Harry Potter (of course)
The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth
And also To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (seems like a popular choice )

My favorites change but right now I'd have to say (in no particular order):
Wide Awake and Dreaming by Julie Flygare
The Orphaned Anything's by Stephen Christian
The Lover's Dictionary by David Levithan
Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen
Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget by Sarah Hepola

This is really hard!

Peter Pan
Curious incident of the dog in the nighttime
Queen of the tearling (trilogy)
Skulduggery pleasant series
Book of a thousand days

But they'll probably change!

The name of the wind (king killer chronicles) by patrick rothfuß
The brothers lionheart by astrid lindgren
Hamlet by shakespear

My all time favorites for about the last 5 years


It's ok to give in to an urge or make a mistake. You are only human and we all have our flaws. We all have our weak moments and we all make mistakes. Thats what makes us human.
Thats what makes us unique and beautiful

Courage isn't always a loud roar. Sometimes it is a quiet whisper at the end of a day saying: Tomorrow I will try it again!
