Here's another post about books since this is a topic many of us enjoy! See my previous post on books vs. ereaders if you missed it.
As I discussed in the previous post my reading life is drastically different from what it was a year ago. I am now reading a lot more and have rediscovered my love for reading. I love discussing books with friends and family and am always on the lookout for new books. I have been reflecting on my favourite books and realize that I don't subscribe to any particular genre. My favourite books are classics I read in elementary school, books that were recommended/gifted by friends and books that I read as part of my studies in university. For me, favourite books are books that I learn a lot from, can't put down and read time and time again. Here's a run down (in no particular order) of my favourite books:
White Oleander, Janet Fitch
A Long Way Gone: memoirs of a soldier boy, Ishmael Beach
Little Women, Louisa May Alcott (the movie is awesome and I may or may not have a tradition of watching it every Christmas season)
Memoirs of a Geisha, Arthur Golden
The Shopaholic Series, Sophie Kinsella (yes I like chick lit and too bad the last book was a disappoinment!)
To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper lee
The Bridges of Madison County, Robert James Waller
Lord of the Flies, Willian Golding
The Truth About Stories, Thomas King
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo Series, Stieg Larsson
