The Harry Potter series, it’s what I grew up with. I don’t think I will ever love a book as much as I love them.

Mine is kind of a bummer but I love it- i’ve read it so many times that it’s like a warm blanket to my brain:  Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons

@FEDORAble:  Reading Harry Potter in the fall/winter, snuggled warm inside with some hot apple cider is heaven.

Jane Austen’s books. I’ve gotten into the habit of reading them all in a row whenever the mood strikes. 

The Anne of Green Gables series

Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead. I like the rest of the books in the Ender’s universe, but my I read those first two over and over and over.

The first three books in the Pendragon Cycle by Stephen R. Lawhead plus a semi-sequel. It’s a Christian take on the Arthurian legends with the legend of Atlantis thrown in. That sounds crazy, but it works.

@atlbride2013:  We are speaking the same language and I love it ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously, snowy days and rainy days are MADE for a good book and a cup of tea or hot cocoa

@HisMoon:  “Ender’s Game and Speaker for the Dead. I like the rest of the books in the Ender’s universe, but my I read those first two over and over and over.”

YES! I love Ender’s Game and have read it so many times. I’ve also read Speaker for the Dead a lot because I’ll usually pick it up right after I finish Ender’s Game. I like Xenocide and have read it a couple times but I really dislike Children of the Mind. I think I’ve only read it once. Horrible ending!

I have a few! The Lovely Bones (my all-time favorite), Plain Truth, To Kill a Mockingbird, My Sister’s Keeper, Tall Tails and Wedding Veils, etc. The last and a few others are just pleasure reads. I read them at the end of each school year (I’m a teacher) as my way of celebrating surviving!

@TLDR:  I hate that ending, too. It’s an interesting book for sure, but I’m not really a fan of any of the characters at that point.

Harry Potter books, easily. Also, The Hunger Games trilogy. I will always love The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Silver Linings Playbook too.

Anne McCaffrey – Dragon Riders of Pern!  I read that book so much when I was in middle/high school it literally fell apart and I had to buy a new one ๐Ÿ™‚

Yet another one for the Harry Potter series!  I seriously want the new book set with all the new artwork. I never had all of the original hard back books so it’s justifiable, right?!

My favorite author is Dean Koontz. Love many of his books, so those would be my other choices.  I also love the Lord of the Rings trilogy books and the Hobbit, as well.
