All Time Favorite Books

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme started by The Broke and the Bookish.  This is my first week participating.  I am very indecisive, so I find it hard to decide on favorites of anything.  For me, a book is in eligible for my "favorites" if it is one of the few books that I decide to keep and will perhaps re-read.  Here is my list in no particular order.

-Pretty much anything by Margaret Atwood.  I have only read 3 or 4 books by her, but they were all amazing.  I am trying to get my hands on the rest.  My favorite of her books is probably The Blind Assassin.
-  The Harry Potter series.
- Nefertiti by Michelle Moran.  I am fascinated by ancient Egypt, and the writing on her books is so good.
- Jane Eyre
-Night by Elie Wiesel.  For a story as horrific as his is, Wiesel tells it in a beautiful way.
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- 1984
- The Time Traveler's Wife
- Girl with the Pearl Earring- Tracy Chevalier.  The rest of her books are really good too, but this one is the best.
- Brave New World


  1. Blind Assassin was the first book I ever quoted.I have to read the rest of the other books you have here. I have read 5/10 and have to reread Brave new world. I remember liking it.

  2. I also loved The Time Traveler's Wife and Night. I own a ton of Atwood books but have only read Cat's Eye which I liked!

  3. OMGosh, how could I forget Night?! I loved that book, it should be on my list.

    I debated about putting Time Traveler's Wife on. I guess I need to start a second list of top tens.

    To Kill a Mockingbird and HP did make my list.

  4. I LOVE Brave New World. Always find myself making connections between book and real society - lol (the bittersweet kind).
    Thanks for stopping by at the Hop!

  5. Umm I can't believe I forgot to put Night on my list...maybe I'll go revise. I was going to include To Kill a Mockingbird but its been years since I read it so I'll have to re-read then add again. :) My top ten are on my blog
    Have a great week!

  6. I've had Nefertiti on my to-read list for some time but I can't find it anywhere! I also love Tracy Chevalier's writing.

  7. Hi, followed you over from the hop... looks like you have great taste in books! A few of these are actually on my will-read-soon list including Nefertiti, Jane Eyre, and TKAM.

  8. Hi :)

    Ohh good list, I recently read Nefertiti and really liked that one
