Your NUMBER ONE favorite book. - October 30th 2009, 04:58 PM

.....what is it?

Mine is The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I tend to read my favorite books over and over again and have read this one at least 16 times...

The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

He wrote them as one volume, so that's why I say the whole "trilogy"
Every line is poetry. Every sentence serves a purpose and advances the most beautiful story ever told.


"Why isn't bull-riding (Beef NASCAR as I call it) the American sport to end all sports? It's an epic battle of the wills between a man and an angry cheeseburger; and if that doesn't typify our awesome civilization, I don't know what does."

Unfortunately i rarely get to read books more than once these days but one that i have read several times and would read again is Memoirs of a Geisha, it paints such a vivid world, cant help but become lost in it. Close runner-up is Pride and Prejudice. I'm so in love with Mr. Darcy, reading it makes my heart race I must dig these up and read them again over christmas

Melissa Marr - Fragile Eternity.

It's part of a series but I like the third one best as it makes you want to read it all as soon as possible because it has a lot of tension in.

I love Looking for Alaska! It's such a great book. I am also a big fan of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, and Atonement by Ian McEwan.

Just one book? Talk about impossibility! I really loved My Sister's Keeper, The City of Bones series thing (is it considered a series? ) and, no point in denying it, Twilight. Sorry twilight hating THers! But picking just one favorite is an impossibility, so I'm not even going to attempt that one.
