PostSubject: Your Favorite Books!   Wed Jan 21, 2015 11:47 am

I looked through the older posts in this section of the forum and couldn't find a thread where we can share our favorite books of all time, so I decided to create that thread. (If it exists and I didn't see it, I apologize!). I have read so many books, and I have a lot of favorites. But I was able to narrow my list down to a select few (and the books I'll share on my first post on this thread aren't even all of that select few). I'm interested to hear what everyone else's favorite books of all-time are, maybe I'll learn about some new books I haven't read yet that are interesting. Smile


Here are just a few of my favorite books:


       

Winger by Andrew Smith and Shine by Lauren Myracle. I'm reading Winger right now for the second time. It is absolutely heartbreaking but still an excellent read. The quote I added to my signature at the bottom of my posts is about my favorite character from Winger.




The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton and To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. The movie adaption of The Outsiders was the first movie to ever make me cry. I've become a much more emotional book reader and movie watcher since then.




The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. When I was reading this book, my thoughts were, where has this book been all my life? The main character, Charlie, is a lot like me in many ways, perhaps that's why I enjoyed reading Perks so much.





The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I stayed up all night to finish this book and read it in 12 hours. I've read it roughly 4 more times since then.




The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling. I was a dummy and waited far too many years to read the HP books, but I'm so glad I finally did. I want to save up to buy my own set of the books so I don't have to borrow my sister's when I want to read them again.

My absolute favorites are a bunch of older classics:


*Jane Eyre - Charlotte Bronte (my all-time favorite - nothing else comes close to it - I just read this again last year - I never tire of it)

*Persuasion - Jane Austen

*A Tale of Two Cities - Charles Dickens

*The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn - Mark Twain

*The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis

There are many, many more, but those are the top ones to list for now.


Who's going to do the cooking?!?!

Any book that has to do with Little House on the Prairie (particularly Laura's 9 books) and Treasures of the Snow are my favorites.

I love the "Little House" books too and I want to re-read them again, hopefully soon. But I have never heard of "Treasures of the Snow," what is it about?

Hi Kristina! It is a book set in the Swiss Alps and is a beautiful story of forgiveness. A neighbor boy teases the girl's little brother in a way that causes him to fall and break his leg. After going to the doctor, they find out that he will never walk perfectly again, and he must use crutches. The boy that was teasing him wasn't going to really do what he was teasing, but it happened anyway. He tries to say he is sorry and makes a gift for the boy who was hurt. But the girl can only think of hating him and trying to make is life miserable. She sets out to do just that, and to never forgive him... until one day everything changes...

I won't give any other details or I will spoil the story. grinsmiley But I will say it was a great book that I could not put down. I need to read it again.  Below is a cover of the book, and it can be gotten pretty cheap on amazon. If you do get it, get the unabridged one from the 50s like I am linking here. I absolutely recommend it, and they also made a movie out of it that was amazing!
