Top 10 all Time Favorite Books

I really wasn’t feeling today’s Top Ten Tuesday topic, so I went back into the archives and saw this topper. I had to really narrow it down. I probably could have tripled or even quadrupled the list.

Are any of these on your list of favorite reads?

    The colour purple and Jane Eyre most certainly make it to my list. Larsson I enjoyed for the first book but as each successive title came along I lost interest.

      I’ve heard quite a few people say the same thing because they found it predictable. Did you find the Larsson books predictable? There were times when I did and I was put off several times because of certain events, but he made Lisbeth a character I could really root for.

    Native Son and Invisible Man are of course great picks! I haven’t finished the Millennium Series, but I can imagine its great too.

      They are really powerful books that speak to social conscious that’s still overlooked today. OMG you really need to finish the Millennium Series. It definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat right up until the end. Which book are you on?

        I’ve seen the movies but only read Dragon Tattoo. *cringe* I’ll get through them all one day. It’s not because I didn’t see potential, but I just didn’t have time to read them all!
