Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
swifthorse tagged me!
- Watership Down by Richard Adams (because this is my childhood favourite)
- The Secret History by Donna Tartt
- The Little Friend by Donna Tartt (childhood)
- One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
- Haas by Paul Biegel (childhood)
- Grimm’s Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm (childhood)
- Haroun and the Sea of Stories by Salman Rushdie (another childhood book - mainly because my version had amazingly creepy drawings)
- The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
- Liveship Traders by Robin Hobb
- The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
Okay, so clearly most of this list is made up by books from my childhood. I recently found some of them back and I absolutely have to re-read them.
