Reading has been a HUGE part of my life ever since I was a kid. I love to lose myself in a good book. I would spend most of my days reading - all day, every day if that were actually possible. (wait... is there a job for that? If anyone has an opening with a job description like that - let me know! 'Cause I would totally rock that!)
I always say I don't like to answer questions about my favorite books. It's just too hard to pick a favorite book. I have loved so many different ones over the years. And yet... here I am writing a post about three things I could read over and over. Painting myself into a corner of sorts. Because honestly, there are probably hundreds of books I would read again. And there are quite a few I have read twice - or more - in my lifetime. These are simply three that came to mind:
1) The Time Traveler's Wife (by Audrey Niffenegger): There aren't many books I can say made me cry. Real, tears running down my cheeks, heart aching kind of cry. But this one did. The story is just so beautiful. And so sad. The day I finished the book, I closed it, and immediately thought..."Yes. That book would be on my Top Ten list" When I first read it, I had a borrowed library copy. I had to go buy my own to keep!
2) Unglued (by Lysa TerKeurst): Just being real here... I
3) To Kill A Mockingbird (by Lee Harper): I mean because, c'mon.. it's To.Kill. A. Mockingbird. This is one of those novels I have probably read at least 5 times. I love the story. I love the movie. It's a classic!
And because I just HAVE to do it: Honorable mentions would go to "Gone With the Wind", "Island of the Blue Dolphins", "The Great Gatsby", "The Other Boleyn Girl", "One Thousand Gifts", "Charlotte's Web", "A Thousand Splendid Suns"... and so many others!!
