    The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath

    Although, now that I have a toddler, we’ve been Seussing it up big time, and I particularly love reading The Lorax to him.

    My Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery–a lovely story about a woman who decides to really live at what she thinks is the end of her life.  She finds beauty, relationships, love, and a sense of self when she decides to walk away from expectations and feelings that are suppressing her.  So sweetly and beautifully written!

    Don’t hate me, but I have to admit…I don’t enjoy reading in my spare time!  The only book I really want to read is the Bible, so I can live a more fulfilling life!  Also, the only books I’ve been reading lately are baby books to my daughter 🙂 Anything touch and feel or pull tab are the favs!

    It’s so hard to pick just one! For different reasons, I really love American Gods by Neil Gaiman, How to be a Woman by Caitlin Moran and 1984 by George Orwell.

    Atonement by Ian McEwan always pops to mind. I love the way it weaves in and out of reality and what we imagine it to be in our minds. Romance (without the cheese) and a twist at the end – pair that with excellent writing and you’ve got me hooked!

    I cannot chose one!  I love them in such different ways.  My favorite books are as follows:   Alice in Wonderland, Anna Karenina, Peter Pan, The Secret Garden, Winesburg Ohio, Their Eyes Were Watching God, The Brothers Karamazov, and The Sword in the Stone.    I have what one calls…a book problem.  🙂  (Which is really a book solution!)

    Oh, Dominique! That is like asking me which of my children is my favorite! (My eldest! Just kidding. No, seriously. Just. Kidding.) Books are my lifeblood. Books are my lens into other lives, my looking glass into other universes and experiences. They are essential to how I understand others, to fully gain empathy and love for the “other” by temporarily being wholly other than myself and fully immersed in another’s thoughts, experiences, and feelings. Lately, I’ve loved The Orphan Master’s Son (won the Pulitzer for fiction last year. check. it. out. I never had considered life in North Korea before), Dog Stars by Peter Heller (beautiful, elegant language despite the post-apocalyptical setting), and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson (her language is so deep I could swim in it all day, languishing, lapping it up).

    to kill a mockingbird! we were assigned it for language arts class when i was 14, so after buying my copy of the book the week before school started, i read through tkam (as we affectionately called it in class) in 3 hours and it made me cry so much! i still rmb sobbing on my bed in the middle of the day because of the conclusion of the story… Atticus I love you haha <3 and it was the book that made me seriously consider studying law in university (which i eventually didn't because i found my even greater love for linguistics when i studied it in junior college – my equivalent of high school – but that's a story for another time).

    I don’t read a lot, but have a HUGE list for books I’d like to read. Why haven’t I read them, it;’s difficult to find time. So..

    My favorite book.

    My favorite book is between two. Thirteen Reasons Why, by Jay Asher, and The Perks of being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. Why?, well…

    Thirteen Reasons Why.
    Though its sort’ve a depressing book, (about a girl who commits suicide), it’s an eye opener. Every once in a while we need to reflect on our lives and our morals, and think whether we are actually doing what is ‘morally’ correct. I guess you’ve figured out that there were thirteen reasons why, hence the title. The author made this book in a creative way, that I feel we’re missing in today’s generation. We come across the same sort’ve trashy books. It makes you feel scared in a way. Though it sounds cliche, it is hard to put this book down. When I was reading this, before I went sleep, by the time I decided to actually go sleep, I found myself thinking about the characters and what had happened over and over. This is a sort’ve book that will make an impact in your life. A book that will open your eyes. A book that should be kept personal to oneself, but then shared just so others can see the true value of the authors work.

    The Perks of being a wallflower. Though it has been made into a film. The book, well it’s different. It’s a compilation of letters. I’ve always had an interest in writing letters. These letters are almost like a diary, or letters to the reader. It’s easy to follow and the themes involved are perfect for youths having difficulties with grasping the process of growing up. Themes such as, loneliness, friendship, sexuality, relationships, abuse etc. It’s difficult to explain my feelings for this book, I guess I found it ‘honest’. You’re probably thinking how can a book be ‘honest’. I guess our language is so limited in words, that I’ve gone for a word which still doesn’t sum my feelings for this book well.

    These two books are books I’ll read again and again. And definitely would recommend these books to anyone, especially if they don’t read books.

    Jane Eyre. I just love the relationship between Jane and Rochester, how in love with him she was that she could hear his voice on the wind. AHH! I die every time I read it.

    The designation of “favorite book” is a constantly moving target for me. On any given day, I could respond with four or five different answers, depending on the time of day or my mood. Right now I’m day dreaming about all of the books is like to share with my 6 week old son to ignite a love of reading in him. I’m particularly hoping that The Mixed Up Files of Mrs Basil E Frankenweiler holds up for him!

    I’ve been trying all week to narrow my favorites down to just one, and I can’t. I love so many books for so many reasons. I love The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood for showing me what sorts of friendships I should aspire to.

    My favorite book is Persuasion. Anne Elliot is a much different character than Austen’s usual young and lively heroines, and her melancholy gets me right in the heart.

    Allison says:

    Hard to pick just one. I love Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude is probably my go-to “favorite” book though, because it’s simply amazing. Literally until the very last moments of the book, I thought it was good but I’d never read it again. And then he demonstrated his skill at storytelling and as I finished the last page I wanted to flip back to the beginning and start reading it again.

    I like novels and all but I’m a plant nerd so I’m going to have to go with my favorite plant ID guide- The Flora of Virginia! The book of mine that gets used the most- that’s for sure!

    The Anne of Green Gables Series. I adore Anne. She’s strong, feminine, courageous, caring, flawed, perfect. I didn’t discover the series until I was an adult years after I spent a summer in Prince Edward Island with my parents. I wish I’d know what I was missing by not visiting Avonlea then!
