I'm a huge book nerd and I was just wondering what are some of peoples all time favorite books?
The books that you have read over and over again an each time they suck you in just like the first time.
Yo... You might like Eat, Pray, Love. It's an excellent story about a woman who decides to spend a year to figure herself out.
Or Shantaram, a BRILLIANT (and based on a true story) book about a man living in India after escaping from prison in Australia.
Or Tales of a Female Nomad is good as well...
You got any good ones? I need to keep my list of reads going!
thank you lyndsayanderson they sound great. i love books by Catherine Coulter. im reading double jeopardy by her right now and its good. its about this judge who is getting away in order to write a book and when he's in a cabin he finds this little girl who has been beaten and he later learns she has been kid napped and one thing happends after another and you have to figure out the bad guy. i am enjoying this book and want to read her others
My favorite books are:
Written by Jean Auel. There are six or seven in her series.
I have read them at least three times. I love em.
The Clan of the Cave Bear
The Valley of Horses
The Plains of Passage
There are more but I can't remember them all right now.
They are classics.
Shakespeare Henry V - One of the best studies in Servant leadership ever written
I have read every Dean Koontz novel more than once--most of them I've read three or more times, lol...
They are just as enthralling to me the second, third, or fourth time around, as they were the first!!!
I'd have to say the Harry Potter series sucks me in every single time and I forget that I've already read the books about twenty times each. Also, anything by Jennifer Weiner is good for a re-read.
Always depends on taste in reading, of course.
I love romance, but only with a sense of humour, and if it's period romance (let alone claiming to be historical), I need to feel the author has a real knowledge and understanding of that period.
If you share such interests, then definitely and absolutely try Georgette Heyer. I find her wit far more strong and accessible than Jane Austen, and while she uses stock characters, she then plays with these: a villain in one will be the hero in another.
Heyer is famous for Regency settings, but was also a scholar of medieval times and has written for that period too.
Whenever I have a gap between new books, whenever I want a good nostalgic read, whenever I need cheering up, I re-read my Heyers.
My all time favorite book (which is really a book series) is Stephen King's magnum opus, The Dark Tower. It's got some very intriguing concepts. It's deep, exciting, sad, funny, and I personally found myself relating to it a lot. It is a 7 book series, and takes some time to get through, but -- in my opinion -- its definitely up there among the most prolific literary greats of all time. I highly recommend it as a must-read.
The 7 books in the series are as follows:
The Drawing of the Three
Wizard and Glass
Wolves of the Calla
Song of Susannah
The Dark Tower

I'm a YA author, so my list gets pretty exhaustive of "favorite books" in the children's world. Among them? ALL of Tamora Pierce's work and Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. Give me a good girl adventure and I'm happy as a clam--and it's work that I'm still pretty...
