Favorite Books

Currently, I have sixteen favorite books and counting. Sixteen books out of the two hundred and fourty two I have read.  Why is this? I have no idea. There were some books I thought were going to be favorite.  But reality sets in and expectations of a good book disappears.  Let us begin this discussion of my favorite books.

There is no order of which I like best. All of them have their unique reason why.

  1. The Witch of Blackbird Pond by Elizabeth George Speare: The main reason why is the story I believe is inspired by the Salem witch trials. This period of time is one my favorite times to read.
  2. The Door by Lorilyn Roberts: This story is amazing. A crossover of Alice in Wonderland and the time when Jesus was on earth. Great idea ever.
  3. Persuasion by Jane Austen: People ask why this book. Why not Pride and Prejudice? Or Emma?  The fact she is able to get a second chance at love. Come on. You don’t meet a girl like that every dynasty. (Referring to Mulan, Disney lovers) Yes, she didn’t marry him at first when he was poor. But she does, when he is rich. What a second, could Wuthering Heights be a new favorite? Must read it.
  4. The Odyssey by Homer I read this in high school and this opened by reading range to the max. I read Percy Jackson series because of this book and the class took of it. The Greeks, oh how I love the Greeks. Boo Romans.
  5. St. Bartholomew’s Eve: A Tale of the Huguenot Wars by G.A Henty: I actually enjoy reading the history of the Huguenots’ persecution.
  6. Kristen’s War by Peter Wisan. A retelling of Pilgrim’s Progress with a twist of the Marines.
  7. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling. I would love to tell why but that would be spoilers.
  8. Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
  9. Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
  10. The Voyage of Dawn Treader by C.S. Lewis
  11. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
  12. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
  13. Bleak House by Charles Dickens
  14. The Black Cauldron by Lloyd Alexander. I mainly read this because of the Disney Adaptation of it.
  15. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
  16. Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien
