Dara | 85 comments Don't think I can do it...but I will say that The Help by Kathryn Stockett and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls are 2 of my alltime faves.

Andrez (andrez-ssi) you really liked the scarlet letter?


message 5: by Denise (new)

Denise (redreader) | 34 comments I have thought on this for a while and I just don't think I can list ten...not sure if this is a good thing. I almost feel there haven't been ten books to make a list yet there are so many books I have loved. Seems like there is more I want to say here, but not sure what to say. I'm going to think on this some more!

i love, love, love this book. i have read it multiple times at different stages of my life. first, at fourteen. next, at seventeen. then at twenty-one or twenty-two (some time in college). and as an adult. i used to teach it, so i've read it multiple times. and i just think the writing is so rich and the characters are so well-developed. particularly pearl. incredible writing.

That is why I named this one "Can You?" It is hard.

I don't think I can make a list of 10 either. I think I'll try. But most of them are going to be recently read books.

Master An Erotic Novel of the Count of Monte Cristo by Colette Gale Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate, #1) by Gail Carriger Born of Night (The League, #1) by Sherrilyn Kenyon Born of Fire (The League, #2) by Sherrilyn Kenyon City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare Three Wishes by Barbara Delinsky The Misunderstood Jew The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus by Amy-Jill Levine

This is a good start. This makes my recently enjoyed and want to re-read list. I guess we can call them favorites.

**Carla** I will have to think about it but I will come up with something:) With a series do I count the individual book or count can a series be counted as one book?

I read it last year and Ive to say i was pretty disapointed...


message 11: by [deleted user] (new)

Carla, I'd say the first book of the series or if you loved them all you can list each one. or haven't finished the series. Your call. I'm not a picky person.


message 12: by Angela (new)

Angela B I probably can if I can include a whole series as a book....but it would take awhile so maybe I'll have to come back to this later

Jencey/ (jencey) Hm...this will take some serious thought. :)

**Carla** City of Bones (Mortal Instruments, #1) by Cassandra Clare Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1) by Kami Garcia Twilight (Twilight, #1) by Stephenie Meyer The Host by Stephenie Meyer The Hunger Games (Hunger Games, #1) by Suzanne Collins Night by Elie Wiesel


so here is a start.....and for the most part the books in a series that are already out, the first book speaks for the entire series.


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

Great start. You have three of my favorite books on this list.

You might also like Soulless by Gail Carriager.


message 17: by Angela (new)

Angela B I can't do it....well maybe if I use the first book to represent a whole series :) I haven't really really tried yet...


The Rainbow Zebra (therainbowzebra) Nope. Couldn't pick my top 10 if you paid me LOL It's such a fluid list. Gone with the Wind is ALWAYS on that list though.
