1. THE BOOK THIEF by Markus Zusak (3)
    And it makes me cry literally every time. I have a signed copy now. That also makes me cry.
  2. THE BROTHERS KARAMAZOV by Fyodor Dostevsky (2)
    I did NOT get or appreciate this book in 10th grade. I did in my 4th year of college.
  3. LOLITA by Vladimir Nabokov (4.5)
    Still figuring out crazy new shit about this messed up novel
  4. NEVERWHERE by Neil Gaiman (3)
    Always wonderful. My favorite Gaiman, I got my batteredtodeath paperback signed.
  5. THE HARRY POTTER SERIES by JK Rowling (all the way through 4 times, books 1-5 at least a dozen times)
    Needs no explanation.
  6. THE DICTIONARY OF THE KHAZARS by Milorad Pavić (3)
    For my senior thesis. Also amazing.
  7. FICCIONES by Jorge Luis Borges (4)
    For my senior thesis but I would have probably read them this many times anyway
    Made me bawl the 2nd time too. Read it to make sure it was still one of my favorite novels. It was.
  9. GOOD OMENS by Neil Gaiman (3)
    Laugh on every page.
  10. THE RAGWITCH by Garth Nix (a dozen plus)
    Bought it in a used bookstore when I was 9 and read it once bimonthly for the next two years or so. Fantastic fantasy novel I adored it
  11. THE FEAR STREET SAGA by RL Stine (4-6)
    I was 8. It was a scary novel full of what I thought was scandalous stuff at that point in my life.
  12. THE PRINCESSES OF BAMARRE by Gail Carson Levine (im not even sure)
    By the author of Ella Enchanted but this one tbh is better.
  13. MATILDA by Roald Dahl (2)
    I didnt own a copy when I was a kid, a source of great frustration to me back then. I finally bought myself a copy for my 22nd birthday. I dressed up as her last Halloween.
  14. THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE by Neil Gaiman (2)
    Literally so good that after speed-reading it for the signing I actually just started it again. Immediately.
    More times than I can count. A lot of Grimms fairy tales too but I would skip around in there - I read Anderson straight through.
