Broke and The Bookish's topic for this week's Top Ten. What "older" books do you love, that you want to make sure no one forgets. There are tons of books I could put on the list, but these were the first ten I thought of (yup, my mind went from Rice and Harris to Montgomery and Lewis without pause). In no particular order, my top ten don't forget about me books:
- The Handmaid's Tale, by Margaret Atwood - My very first dystopian and very scary.
- 1984, by George Orwell - Another classic, very scary dystopian.
- Interview With A Vampire, by Anne Rice - Great vampire fiction.
- Dead Until Dark, by Charlaine Harris - The book that inspired True Blood.
- Anne of Green Gables, by L.M. Montgomery - A classic book, the thought of which always makes me smile.
- The Chronicles of Narnia, by C.S. Lewis - I'm on the last book and it's a series I don't want to end.
- Carrie, by Stephen King - This one is a bit of a cheat I haven't actually read it yet. But it's King's first book and the one that started his career.
- Kindred, by Octavia Butler - Just brilliant.
- To Kill A Mockingbird, by Harper Lee - An amazing story.
- A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini - It still makes me emotional.
I was tempted to add Harry Potter to this list, but I figured it would be on tons of other lists this week.
