    What is your...

    Advertisements
    favorite book of all time? I need a distraction. I was just browsing through goodreads and got nostalgic for my old favorites that I could read a billion times, and now I'm wondering...what's your fave? I don't mean what you're reading at the moment...I mean the one book that just grabbed you and never let go.

    Mine is The Return of the Native, by Thomas Hardy. I could probably quote you large sections word for word. I read it in high school and just...le sigh.

    I also really enjoyed the book Speak. I read it in high school and it's never left my mind.

    Mine is pretty cliché but it's The Alchemist, by Paulo Coehlo.

    I still have a copy that I got with a box of old books when I was younger and it's my "warm blanket" book, it's just cozy and uplifting.

    Jane Eyre or Sense and Sensibility or anything by Ayn Rand (not for political reasons, but, because they are good books).

    I like very mindless teenie-bopper books. Yes, I am almost 30.

    I have two. To Kill a Mockingbird and Gone with the Wind.

    They are the only books I can re-read. I only like to read a book once, but they both have stuck with me throughout the years. I became pretty emotional when I found out that my son fell in love with To Kill a Mockingbird as well.
