It’s funny, there are multiple books on here by authors I’ve never heard of (Jacqueline Wilson, Robert Jordan). In here are some of my favorite books as a child (Tuck Everlasting, A Wrinkle in Time, Little House on the Praerie) and as an adult (To the Lighthouse, Equus, Behind the Scenes at the Museum, The God of Small Things). There are books here that I threw across the room after finishing (Wuthering Heights, Atlas Shrugged, Tender is the Night) and ones where I didn’t understand every other world (The Epistemology of the Closet). There are books that made me want to throw up, reading what humans are capable of (The Sparrow, Of Mice and Men). Books that I treasure (The Bean Trees, Oedipus Rex, The Color Purple) and ones that I’ve re-read countless times (all the JK Rowling books, The Shell Seekers, Anne of Green Gables, Rebecca). Fun stuff.

  1. I’ll definitely give this one a try later. So many books! I had similar thoughts while reading through the list… some strange choices, and some obvious ones missing, too.

  2. Now I’m thinking that part of the meme should be to get the commenters to recommend and not-recommend titles, as you did for me.

    So I my recommendation is: definitely do not read ALIVE! And definitely do read Midnight’s Children, one of my favorite novels of all time.

  3. HI Turtlebella, I enjoyed reading this meme and I posted this one on my blog too … another bookworm here … here’s my list: http://mgalaagan.com/2007/11/25/a-book-list-meme/

  4. […] Dark Materials, Philip Pullman 4. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Douglas Adams 5 source: Its a book list meme!, Slow but […]

  5. i think that this is a great help but the problem is, there are not enough books to make researches on please add all books and the novel the god boy by ian gross
