Top Ten ALL TIME FAVORITE Books

1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

I would list the entire series, but this is my favorite book in the series. I think it was the most interesting in perspective of introducing the world of Harry Potter. What is your favorite Harry Potter?

2. Everybody Sees the Ants
A.S. King is magical. I swear her books are stories to live by. This is my personal favorite of hers. 

3. Eleanor and Park
A bit of a "duh" one for me. I am a sucker for contemporary romance when it is done well, and I have never seen it done better than Eleanor and Park's story. 

4. Winger
First off, can I please just state how proud I am I started the trend of reading this book at my school? I mean it, it's literally everywhere. But it's hilarious and I absolutely love Ryan Dean West.

5. Champion
Probably one of the best sci-fi books I've read. Definitely the best in the series, and it summed up everything so beautifully. LOVE it. 

6. The Help
I think this book truly shows how strong individuals-and strong books-have the power to make a change. And we need more of that. 

7. The Book Thief 
Nothing gets me like WWII does. I am fascinated by WWII, and this book was everything I wanted in a historical fiction and more. 

8. The Summer I Turned Pretty
I normally don't enjoy reads like this one, but it was written in a way that I got completely sucked into the story. Oh did I mention I also just love Jenny Han? 

9. The Outsiders
I think this book really shows how important Young Adult books can be. It really inspired me as a reader and a writer to think outside of the box in terms of literature. 

10. The Name of this Book is Secret
One of my childhood favorites...One of my favorites even now. I loved the mystery in this book, but at the same time I also loved the humor. There was a real uniqueness, eccentricity to this book.

What are your top ten all time favorites? I'd really like to know so that I might be able to read some of them.

  3. Goblet of Fire is my favorite of the HP books, too! I love how big the world gets with that one -- the World Cup, the Triwizard Tournament, and of course the return of Voldemort as a physical human being. I love that you included Eleanor & Park, too! Hopefully I'll get my list up here in the next hour or so. Great job with yours!

  4. The Goblet of Fire was also my favorite Harry Potter book. I thought it was interesting how J.K. Rowling brought in new schools and introduced all these new characters. I also really loved The Help. I thought that it really interpreted just how bad racism was back then and how people handled it. I enjoyed the characters and was so sad for Aibileen at the end. I love your list, these are definitely some great choices!

  7. I loved reading The Book Thief. Historical fiction is my favorite genre to read, and when a historical fiction book occurs in the WWII or pioneer age, it gets bonus points from me. The Book Thief was such a powerful story of love and loss and the power of words, and both the style and perspective were unique. That's a recipe for the perfect book. I've also heard wonderful things about The Outsiders and The Help, so hopefully I'll get around to reading them soon.

    1. I totally agree. I think the gloomy but satirical way Death spoke in The Book Thief really brought it to life. I hope you read the other ones!
