Kelley Anne | 1619 comments On facebook, there is a "chain letter" note going around that I just got tagged on today. I thought that it was kinda fun, so I thought that I'd post it on here for anyone that wants to do it as well!

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it.
Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing what books my friends choose.

1 - The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
2 - The Hunger Games Series by Suzanne Collins
3 - Mitch Rapp series by Vince Flynn
4 - Harry Potter series by J K Rowling
5 - Werewolf Series by Patricia Briggs
6 - Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charlaine Harris
7 - To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
8 - Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell
9 - Uglies Series by Scott Westerfeld
10 - Work and the Glory Series by Gerald N Lund
11 - Faith of our Fathers Series by Nancy Campbell Allen
12 - Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
13 - The Host by Stephenie Meyer
14 - Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
15 - Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer

**I think that I kinda cheated! I couldn't pick just 15 books so I picked a few series as well! If you actually count how many books are in each of those series, I really picked 63 books! Plus I cheated by lumping both of the Patricia Briggs werewolf series together! Hey, they connect! So they can be considered the same series, right?**

message 12: by The Flooze (new)

The Flooze (the_flooze) | 1831 comments Melodie, have you seen the miniseries on PBS with Olympia Dukakis as Mrs. Madrigal and Laura Linney as Maryanne? They did a great job bringing everyone to life. I think I actually saw that first and it inspired me to read the books.

message 23: by Starling (new)

Starling | 176 comments Jennifer, you've read A Game of Thrones. And I'm sure you loved it. You should know that although there are 4 books in the series, George RR Martin has almost certainly stopped writing books in the series, so if you get attached to the characters, as I did, you will never find out what happened to them or to their world.

I think he wrote himself into a corner and could not write himself out of it.
