Ten on Tuesday: 10 Books That Made ME Want to Drop Everything and Read
I was visiting KimKnits and saw her list and thought I'd join her and Carole and throw my hat in the ring for Ten on Tuesday.
In no particular order. I can't explain why I like all of these books, but I remember that "can't stop now feeling" and I admit there are more, but these are the ones that are jumping out at me right now.
1. Harry Potter: I'm getting on KimKnit's bandwagon for this one. Yeah, all of them. Instead of "Calgon take me away" it's definitely J.K. Rowling take me away. Sad, mad, bored, sleepless in San Francisco, or anywhere else in the world this series is like a warm hug and safe world to whisk away to. I'll say that #5 The Order of the Phoenix is my favorite (since Kim listed hers)
3. Pride and Prejudice
4. The Rickshaw
6. Moon and Sixpence
7. The Count of Monte Cristo
8. The Book Thief
9. The Wolves of Willoughby Chase
10. La Dame aux Camélias
I have more books that I kept reading that didn't make this list. Some I kept reading just to see what would happen. Some because I just wanted it to be done which doesn't necessarily mean I enjoyed the read. For example I read Gone Girl like a crazy person when I was on vacation, but I'd probably never read it again and if I did, I wouldn't feel compelled to devour it.
What book did you read that you couldn't put down that the experience continues to stick out in your head? That is what the above book list makes me feel when I start to read them again, hungry. Even if I put it down, I am wistful for the world I'm leaving.
