PostSubject: What's Your Favorite Book?   Thu Sep 27, 2012 5:02 pm

Mine would have to be Green Angel by Alice Hoffman.



This book was one of the first that really, really hit home for me emotion wise. It was full of sorrow but the lesson remained later on that, despite such sadness and horrible things that can stand in our way, there will always be a tomorrow if we allow ourselves to live.

While it is a short story, for me, it holds a special place in my heart. It's the one book that, no matter how many times I read it, can bring me to tears but make me happy when I've ended the book.

So I ask you, what's your favorite book?

That's difficult, I have two.
While others may not appreciate Stephanie Myers for her Twilight series, I have never read a more engrossing and complete novel that could mix body snatcher aliens and romance so perfectly as The Host. I am just continually amazed how she could depict the feelings of one of the aliens not as just a parasite but as a living creature that just has different ideals than us humans. Each time i read the book its like i'm reading it for the first time.

Also, The Telling Pool by David Clement-Davies is also a fantastic story. This one gets points for me in different categories than The Host. I love this novel for having such a great atmosphere about it of medieval England and this sort of mysterious magic that is added just enough so that its believable. The character really goes through a coming-of-age as he travels through a very dark world.

This is tough.
I'd have to say it's a three way time between "One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest" "1984" and "A Dirty Job"

This is tough. It's either The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins or A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket.

I think the second book series but only because I think that Mockingjay wasn't as good as the first two in the Hunger Games series.
