My Favorite Books.

Ok, so I've had several people asking me over comments and the contact form what my favorite book is, or what kind of books I like to read. So, for those of you who asked, and for anyone else who is curious to know, you finally get your answer! It's impossible for me to choose just one book though, I mean really? So, this post is going to be different. To keep this as short as possible, I'm just going to list my favorite books rather than explaining why I like each one because this is supposed to be a blog post, not a 10 page essay assignment. Please keep in mind that these books are in no particular order, because that's asking too much of me. XD

1. Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie (first published in 1911)

2. Pinocchio: The Tale Of A Puppet by Carlo Collodi (first published in 1883)

3. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland and Through The Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll (first published in 1865 and 1871)

4. Grimm's Fairy Tales by The Brother's Grimm (first published in 1812)

5. Le Morte d'Arthur by Sir Thomas Malory (first published in 1485)

6. The Odyssey by Homer (first composed at the end of the 8th century B.C.)

7. The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge (first published in 1946)

8. Kissed By An Angel series by Elizabeth Chandler

9. The Perks Of Being A Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky (published 1999)

10. The Dancing Master by Julie Klassen (published 2013)

While I'm not sure if I enjoyed the books listed below as well as the books on the previous list, here are a few more that I have greatly and thoroughly enjoyed as well, and I consider them a close second:

1. Little Women (volume 1 & 2), Little Men, and Jo's Boys by Louisa May Alcott (first published in 1868, 1869, 1871, and 1886)

2. The Merry Adventures Of Robin Hood by Howard Pyle (first published in 1883)

3. A String In The Harp by Nancy Bond (published 1976)

4. The Spiderwick Chronicles by Tomi DiTerlizzi and Holly Black (published 2003-2009)

5. The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S. Lewis (published 1950-1956)

6. The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (published 1954-1955)

8. Percy Jackson & The Olympians by Rick Riordan (published 2005-2009)

9. The Heroes Of Olympus by Rick Riordan (published 2010-2014)

Now you can go ahead and tell me what great taste I have. :P  Keep in mind, I always find myself reading new books, so this list will be modified constantly. I'm always open to suggestions too, so I'd love to know you're favorite books if you want to go ahead and tell me in the comment section below or hit me up by email through the contact form located in the Contact Me tab near the top of the page. ;)


  1. Love all the classics on this list! What are some of the ones you want to read that you haven't gotten to yet?

    1. Ha, great question! I've been really wanting to read Don Quixote, The Love That Split The World, Dracula, Beowulf, and Rick Riordan's The Trials Of Apollo. I'm currently reading Idylls Of The King by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. It's a GREAT read, but I've been mesmerized by the stories of King Arthur for almost a decade now. XD
