Fifty Favorite Books

Being as that this is a book blog, mostly, I thought one of my celebratory fifty things lists needed to be Favorite Books. Agreed? Most of these are listed on my favorites tab up top, but I'm guessing most readers haven't ever even clicked there, am I right? So now I'm forcing you to take a look at my list!

Only problem is... it needed to be longer. I left off a lot. I think I should have listed 50 books PER category. THAT would be fun!

I'll save that for another day.

  1. Wow, lots of great books. You've named so many of my favorites, I'm going to have to go look for all the rest that are unfamiliar to me.

    1. Jeane: I hope you get some of the others!

  2. Yay! Twilight made your list! And, I'm glad Harry Potter did too. I knew The Book Thief would and I'm glad to see if was top of your YA list. I don't get the classics, though. Maybe, someday I'll like them. Maybe.

    1. Jenni: Some day on the classic! I hope you keep trying...

  3. I didn't know Little Women was a kids book or that Ender's Game wasn't YA... The things you learn...

    1. Megs: Those two books are cross overs for sure. But I definitely don't think of Ender's Game as YA.

  4. No way I could narrow down my favorite books. Not even to 50. Some of your YA books surprised me. Looks like I need to start reading.

    1. Jenny; They did? What did you expect to see instead?

  5. Fun idea! I don't think I could have stopped at 50 either. Fifty in each category MAYBE ...

    1. Susan: Fifty per category! Let's do it!

  6. So many great books on this list!! And, so many that I have yet to read!!

  7. Great list! Ferdinand The Bull is one I hardly ever see anyone talk about - love it!
