Top Ten All-Time Favourite Books

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

This will be in no particular order except my number 1:

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen: I've read this one so many times (and watched the movie, the mini-series and the series Lost in Austen way too many times) and I still love it. I will love Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy forever.

2. The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling: I grew up with these books and have and will again reread them over and over again. J.K. Rowling is a true genius for creating them.

3. The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett: only recently discovered, but so beautifully written I swear I heard hallelujah-sounds. I'm also very excited about the series.

4. The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss: Kvothe is such a likeable character and the world Rothfuss has created truly magical. I'm not-so-patiently awaiting the sequel.

5. Juniper and Wise Child by Monica Furlong: I've loved this books ever since I was little, I've read them over and over again and recently purchased them cause I want to be able to read them to my future children. I wanted to be both Wise Child and Juniper.

6. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins: this is AMAZING! I've read it in one go, even my brother (who doesn't read much) finished it in two days. I've already preordered Mockingjay.

7. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë: I love it more everytime I read it.

8. His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman: I couldn't help but love Lyra and I want to have a daemon of my own..

9. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell: what can I say, this one is just a classic and I love Scarlett's southern charm. It's been a while, I think a reread is due sometime soon.

10. A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin: a very promising start of his series and I'm hoping the rest will live up to it. For reasons, check out my review.

This was hard! I had to leave some off, but they know I love them anyway.
