Favorite Books

What are some of your favorite books, and why? My top 5 is a really mixed bunch to say the least. Wicked has held the spot for many years. I love fantasy, and Maguire beautifully tells Elphaba's story with all the amazing details of a very political land. I have yet to read anything esle by him, though I own Son of a Witch. I just need to find the time.

Next on my list is Tipping the Velvet by Sarah Waters. Simply put, this is the most beautiful story of a woman finding herself as we see her journey with the three women she calls lovers. I love seeing her grow.

Finally, Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat, Pray, Love is another finding oneself story. This one really changed my life. Reading about her journey made me realize I could live my own truth too, and come back to writing.

I am reading a book now that was given to me by a good friend, and I think it just might vie for the top three. What the heck, I might as well open up my world and make it my top 5.

Tell me some of your favorites.

I have forgotten all those favorite books I read when I was younger. But I love Tuesdays with Morie

My favourite books keep on changing and growing but I loved Kite Runner, Harry Potter series, To Kill a Mockingbird, Pride and Prejudice and GateKeepers series by Anthony Horowitz. Many books by Daphne du Maurier and MM.Kaye are still my firm favourites. Just too many to list ....
