MY TOP 10 FAVORITE BOOKS OF ALL TIME...
In no certain order...
- •"The Stranger" ~ Albert CamusFrom the first time I read this book, it just made sense to me. Camus' absurdity was new for me to read, but all too familiar for me to feel.
- •"Lord of the Rings" ~ J.R.R. TolkienTolkien was able to create an entire world of lore surviving on the theme of good vs evil, and when I read it, I get lost and forget that I am in fact reading it and not living it.
- •"The Fall" ~ Albert CamusAgain... the absurdity. But also the fact that, to me, it is completely original in being a book that is entirely written in monologue.
- •"Follow My Leader" ~ James B. GarfieldA favorite book of mine from elementary school. It was the first book I had ever reread. EVER.
- •"The Divine Comedy" ~ DanteI picked this book up as a joke, never intended on reading, and then after the very first page I was hooked. I got lost in the world of verse.
- •"The Road" ~Cormac McCarthyA great read. McCarthy somehow makes it fascinating to read a book about a journey where not much takes place for a long time besides the characters surviving, but you are compelled to continue the journey with them.
- •"The Revolutionary Career of Maximilian Robespierre" ~ David P. JordanI'm not one for biographies, but when I had to read this one for class, I ended up really enjoying it.
- •"Babe & Me" ~ Dan GutmanThis book alone was got me into reading. It was the first book I ever enjoyed. I was actually lucky enough to meet Dan Gutman when I was younger. He gave me two signed books and we were able to talk for awhile. Childhood memories...
- •"A Happy Death" ~ Albert CamusSorry, one more... A good read where again, the author is able to create a story where not much happens, but it is fascinating.
- •"The Catcher in the Rye" ~ J.D. SalingerIt's cliché, I know. But that's your opinion and this list is my opinion... I can connect to Holden Caulfield, and at a time in High School where I wasn't sure who I was, that connection came in handy. And it also helped me rediscover the joy of reading.
