My Ten Favorite Books

1. East of Eden by John Steinbeck
2. A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov
3. The Master & Margarita Mikhail Bulgakov
4. People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
5. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
6. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
7. The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingolver
8. Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
9. Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice by Mark Plotkin, Ph.D.
10. Animals in Translation by Temple Grandin

Above are some of my favorite books listed in no particular order of preference. I like them all equally for different reasons. It was actually difficult for me to choose my ten favorite books as I've read so many splendid books to date. My list of favorite books does change over the course of time due to changing tastes and as I continue to read/discover new books. 

Tell me your favorite reads!


  1. Hi!
    That's a great list, I loved The Poisonwood Bible.
    It is difficult to choose favourites I think, like you say, it depends on current tastes & mood etc.
    A few of mine would be:
    Wild Swans by Jung Chang
    Birdsong by Sebastian Faulks
    Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
    The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    Sons & Lovers by DH Lawrence
    The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood

    and others of course!

  2. I like your list too! I haven't read some of the books you've mentioned, so I'll have to give them a go! I love Margaret Atwood's writing. In fact, I currently her novel The Blind Assassin sitting on my bookshelf, but have yet to read it! I also have The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova as well. So, many books, so little time!
