The subject of today's topic is the daunting task of talking about my favorite book.
For me this poses a huge problem simply because I have multiple favorite books and the notion of limiting myself to one smacks of censoring a part of me. I read based on where I am in my life- strictly for my own pleasure and enjoyment. Because of this, my reading tastes run the gambit of what I find appealing at that given moment. I suppose it could be said that I am a genre reader- basing the genre of the material on whatever is going on in my life and the subject which compliments it. In other words, a literary soundtrack for my life.
If I were to compile a literary ipod (so to speak), here are a few must-have titles:
- Brave New World- Aldous Huxley
- 1984- George Orwell
- A Woman's Place- Barbara Delinsky
- Gone with the Wind- Margaret Mitchell
- Saving Grace- Julie Garwood
- A Circle of Friends- Maeve Binchy
- Savannah- Eugenia Price (the entire Savannah quartet)
- A Tale of Two Cities- Charles Dickens
- The Count of Monte Cristo- Alexandre Dumas
- God Save the Sweet Potato Queens- Jill Conner Browne
- Born in Death- J.D. Robb (the entire In Death series)
- Among the Hidden- Margaret Peterson Haddix
- White Knight- Jim Butcher (the entire Dresden Files series)
- The DaVinci Code- Dan Brown
- The Scarlet Pimpernel- Baroness Orczy
- The Well- educated Mind- Susan Wise Bauer
- What Southern Women Know, that every woman should- Ronda Rich
- How I Paid for College: A Novel of Sex, Theft, Friendship & Musical Theater- Marc Acito
- Garfield- Jim Davis
- Rats Saw God- Rob Thomas
I could go on and on... there are so many, but you get the gist. Happy reading everyone!
