Rules: In a text post, list 10 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 10 friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!
- The Hobbit
- The Little Prince
- Brave New World
- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
- The Day of the Triffids
- Lord of the Flies
- The Time Machine
- Fahrenheit 451
- Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
I’m not a great reader now, I stopped when I enter to the University :/ now I only read about ecology, bothany and such things but those are books that really touched me, almost all of them are kinda dystopian (really 70%) but those books changed my mind and my way to see the world because I read all of those when I was very young. The other three nice books (1,2 & 5) are the ones that touched my heart and that I grow up with.
Ohh, this is tough. I don’t really read for fun anymore, but here are a few that have stuck with me deeply:
- The Small Rain (L’Engle) - sad and beautiful and strong women
- Blasphemy (Durrani) - majorly fucked up and strong women
- Red Mars (Robinson) - SEX DRUGS AND SCIENCE and strong women
- Lullaby (Palahniuk) - majorly fucked up everything
- The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Doom (Pinkwater) - fun
- The Tempest (Shakespeare) - beautiful and strong everything
This is super tough. And I’m not tagging people, y’all can tag y’selves. Thanks, jazzmoth:
1. Harry Potter (Rowling)
I am the Gen-HP!
2. Neverwhere (Gaiman, adapted into Graphic Novel by Carey and Fabry)
My gateway to comics!
3. The Abhorsen Trilogy (Nix)
The Moose and I bonded over this pretty hardcore. Sabriel is my forever love.
4. Anne of Green Gables series (Montgomery)
This remains one of my fav books, and has been for more than half my life.
5. Rebecca (Du Maurier)
Such intrigue! Probably the most well-crafted narrative on this list.
6. American Born Chinese (Yang)
Basically all my cultural identity issues.
7. Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (Kaling)
My guidebook to how to be a funny twenty-something chubby POC lady!
8. I Capture the Castle (Smith)
This book does the impossible task of making boredom very story-worthy.
9. To Kill a Mockingbird (Lee)
This book helped me understand the complexities of prejudice, and how grey our responses to it can be.
10. Boy Meets Boy (Levithan)
My first gay book!
Bonus: Ms Marvel (Wilson)
My favourite thing right now. Please don’t fuck it up!
