So I was thinking today about how it’s been a couple of days since I’ve blogged, and that I should probably do something about that. But… what to write?? And then I thought, “Maybe I’ll just read my book.” And then it hit me: I could write a list of books that I’ve read and re-read, and love. And maybe, if you feel so inclined, you could add to the comments your list of favourite books. That way I can add to my pile of books to read. Because if there’s one thing I hate, it’s running out of good reading material.
And, without further aidue, here’s my list of books:
Not Wanted on the Voyage, Timothy Findlay
The Mists of Avalon, Marion Zimmer Bradley
The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield
The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien
Tigana, Guy Gavriel Kay
A Prayer for Owen Meany, John Irving
The World According to Garp, John Irving
The Red Tent, Anita Diamant
The Book of Negroes, Lawrence Hill
The Twilight Series, Stephanie Meyers (hey! Don’t you judge me…)
The Outlander Series, Diana Gabaldon
Harry Potter Series, J.K. Rowling
Battle Royale, Koushun Takami
Game of Thrones Series, George R. r. Martin
The Secret Garden, Frances Hodgson Burnett
The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini
A Fine Balance, Rohinton Mistry
The Colony of Unrequited Dreams, Wayne Johnston
The Divine Ryans, Wayne Johnston
I am confident that there are so many more to list… but I’ve sat on this post for 3 days now, and I just want to get something on my blog! It’s been too long. And so, I post this list as a starting point. As new titles occur to me, I will add them.
Generally I find that I can’t go wrong with a book penned by either Guy Gavriel Kay or Timothy Findlay. Or Wayne Johnston.
