Books I Have Read More Than Once
To read a book more than once when I own thousands automatically makes it a favorite.
- •Harry Potter seriesNo explanation necessary. I have at least two full series sets: one for reading, one for keeps.
- •The Giver by Lois LowryOne of my favorite books as a kid that actually stopped me in my tracks and I had a MOMENT when I finished it.
- •Alice in Wonderland by Lewis CarrollReading something so wonderfully and intentionally absurd made me feel less so.
- •The Awakening by Kate ChopinRequired reading in high school that I read through in one sitting and wrote extra assignments for because it inspired me.
- •The Metamorphosis by Franz KafkaI find something different to obsess over every time I revisit it. As I evolve, so does it. A masterpiece.
- •The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le GuinMy introduction to science fiction. I have yet to find many critically acclaimed books that match this one.
- •The Catcher in the Rye by JD SalingerMy game changer. What made me want to study English Literature.
- •The Great Gatsby by F. Scott FitzgeraldThe one I tried to hate and couldn't.
- •Collective works of Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, and Henry David ThoreauThe kind of writing I want to stamp on my eyelids and tattoo on my brain. Forever favorites.
