Julia | 116 comments Skellig by David Almond
Such a great book that everyone in my family has read. Really simple in its meaning, but beautiful as well.

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
I loved the message and the way the story was told. It may sound cliched, but it really helped point me in the right direction, and I keep the morals from the story in my head all the time.

message 15: by Hunter (new)

Hunter | 51 comments * The Time Keeper - I read it many, many years ago, and while I probably wouldn't like it as much now, it really left a lasting impression on me.
* Mark Alpert's The Six trilogy - A much more recent read, but it messed me up in the best way possible, especially during the epilogue of book 3, The Silence. I'm so glad I went in blind; that made the final result even more impactful.
* Seveneves - Took a while to get into; however, sticking to the book was worth it, as the last half was utterly mind-blowing.
* Maximum Ride Forever - I'm not a fan of the Maximum Ride series anymore, but Forever personally meant so much to me at the time of its release, and I don't think I'll ever forget about it.

message 28: by Karin (new)

Karin This is a great question. I have chosen books I read when I was in high school that I not only remember reading, but I remember what they are about because these have stood the test of time. I say this having reread a couple of books in the past few years that I had NO memory of reading until I was well into the books! These are a range of books, in random order, from excellent to not very good at all!

The Ice People by René Barjavel
Where Nests the Water Hen by Gabrielle Roy
The House on the Strand by Daphne du Maurier
The Once and Future King by T.H. White
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
My Darling, My Hamburger

There are more, but these are the first few that came to mind as I tried to think of things from more than one genre.

message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Old Magic by Marianne Curley
Both because of the book and the time I read it.
I read it in a time that was hard for me, and I hadent found any great books for a year after "swimming" in great books unntil this point. Reading this gem opened up a whole new world to me.
The plot, because the plot is so different from so much out there, it has both time travell and magic, a protagonist that is 100 % herself, multiple povs, a insanely scary villain(still when I reread it).
Its out of print now sadly, but try to find it used, or in the library, YOU WOUNT REGRET IT.
