#BookBloggerHop | Favorite Books

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer @ Crazy-For-Books in March 2010 and ended on December 31, 2012. With Jennifer’s permission, Billy @ Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer relaunched the hop on February 15, 2013. Each week the hop will start on a Friday and end the following Thursday. There will be a weekly prompt featuring a book related question. The hop’s purpose is to give bloggers a chance to follow other blogs, learn about new books, befriend other bloggers, and receive new followers to their own blog.

What are some of your favorite books?

(Julie @ Stepping Stone Book Reviews)

I have so many favorite books, it kind of makes the word favorite lose meaning. I’ve broken them up by genre.

Classic Literature:

  • The Awakening by Kate Chopin
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin
  • The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien
  • Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Historical Romance:

  • To Dance with Kings by Rosalind Laker

RomComs:

  • The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella

Mystery/Thriller:

  • The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich
  • anything by Janet Evanovich – I have loved them all
  • The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown

Fantasy

  • the Harry Potter series
  • His Dark Materials series by Philip Pullman
  • The Sword of Truth series by Terry Goodkind
  • the original Shannara series by Terry Brooks

And then there were so many more that were on the tip of my brain and their titles just aren’t coming to me. I have no shortages of favorites. I picked ones that have stood the test of time but some of my more recent reads may end up on my all-time favorites list. The one at the top that I could see being there is Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus.

  1. Great list! I’ve only listened to the first Harry Potter, but I loved it and if they have the rest of the series in the library I’d definitely listen to it. Some of my favourites are The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe, When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit, Goodnight Mister Tom and A Christmas Carol.

  2. I’m the same I love so many different genres its hard to pick. One for sorrow by Helen Fields has stuck out to me this year, and I always loved Jane Austen books 😊

  3. As a child, my favourite books were the Famous Five, Secret Seven, Twins of St Claires, but the very first paper back I read was Katie, and What Katie did Next. Both with strong female roles, and my inspiration for writing in the viewpoint of women. As I got older I do like period drama’s where there is a strong female lead. I do like all the Harry Potter books, and prefer reading the books to some of the films. Having said that, I’m reading more thrillers now, as I am writing a thriller. I just like reading.

  4. I like the way you’ve divided up the list. The original Shannara Trilogy would be up there as one of my favourites although I didn’t include it my top ten that I did for this post. LOTR definitely did though.

  5. I love the graphic you made – and your book choices! I have tried and failed to read Wuthering Heights so make do with watching the film instead as I do love the story.

  6. I could not begin to answer this question. I know I recommend Frederick Backman, Sarah Morgan, David Baldacci, Susan Mallery when asked about authors. I think genres would be the way to go. Great selections Tessa,

  8. The Harry Potter series is the only one I’m very familiar with on your list. Guess I’ve got some reading to do.

  9. We share a lot of favorites, Tessa. I agree that it’s a hard list to compile! I haven’t read Pullman and you’ve piqued my interest there. My favorite books right now are lyrical fantasies. I can’t get enough of them. 🙂
