My Top 10 Favorite Books… For Now

#1 – Peter Pan by J. M. Barrie – This is my all time favorite book. I used to wish I could be Peter Pan or one of the lost boys (yes I was aware that I was a girl) and never have to grow up. I don’t even know how many times I’ve read this book. Probably around 100.

#2 – Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett – I’ve loved this book since I was a little girl. I really like one of the first movie adaptions of it too. I used to play outside and pretend to be Mary.

Image

#3 – Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Caroll – I have a 1920’s print of this book. It is one of my prized possessions.

Image

#4 – Emma by Jane Austen – Honestly I love all of Jane Austen’s books but Emma is my favorite. It’s a perfect set up for a “chick flick” and it’s funny to think that they had those type of situations back in her era.

Image

#5 – The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling – Do I really need a reason? I mean it’s freakin Harry Potter. It’s just awesome.

Image

#6 – Peter and the Starcatchers Series by Dave Barry – This is a great spin-off series of Peter Pan. It’s also printed by Disney so that makes it awesome because Disney is amazing. I’ve read the first 4 books and I love them.

Image

#7 – Julia of the Wolves Trilogy by Jean Craighead George – This book is a classic adventure/heroine story. My copy has all 3 books in one and it is phenomenal.

Image

#8 – The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis – I didn’t read these books until the summer after my freshman year in college and now I re-read them almost every year.

Image

#9 – Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry – My aunt bought me this book in Jr. High. At the time I had never read anything like it before and didn’t think much of it. When I re-read it a few summers ago I finally realized how deep this book actually is.

Image

#10 – The Fault In Our Stars by John Green – John Green is my 2nd favorite author and this book really hits home for me. I’ve had several friends’ lives and my life changed due to the affects of cancer.

Image

*Bonus #11* – The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins – These books would keep me up at night. I would think and wonder and plan about what I would do if I was forced into the same situations that they were forced into.
