Marnie (marniekeister) Share what books you have read from the list? What books are your favorite? What do you like about them?

I have read the Harry Potter series, The Chronicles of Narnia series, The Hunger Game series, the Twilight series, and Where the Red Fern Grows. My favorite out of what I have read is The Chronicles of Narnia! I likes the little bit of religious aspects to the series, but also does not take place in the world and a little fantasy!

Hi Marnie,

No worries. Full disclosure, many of the books I have read were read back during school. I find my tastes change and am not sure I would go back and re-read some of them now if I hadn't already done so , though admit they are great reads.

message 10: by Harper (new)

Harper | 3 comments So cool to see everyone's responses! If I may make a suggestion, if you use the feature that allows "add book/author" it will create a hyperlink to the book. This will also create a tally in this threat that will allow us to see "BOOKS MENTIONED IN THIS TOPIC," so we could look and see how many times a specific book has been mentioned i.e. appeared on a list!


message 11: by Blueberry (new)

Blueberry (blueberry1) Good idea that I usually do but this time it was more expedient to copy, paste and erase. :)

Allison, you must be in heaven right now! Three great books in a row. I loved Pillars of the Earth, but it's hefty, so it can't be rushed.

I can't enjoy a long book if I'm under time pressure to finish.

I'm reading the Outlander series too. I think I'm up to book 7. I can take these slowly and read a little each night if I can be patient.

Wow Cat ! I think that's more than anyone here! Do you plan to try to read the whole list, or will you pick and choose?
