Re: Top 10 Fav Fiction Books

1. Harry Potter
2. LOTR
3. Stargirl & Love, Stargirl
4. Chronicles of Narnia
5. The Giver/Gathering Blue/Messenger
6. The Time Quartet, and related novels
7. The Westing Game/The Last Tresure*
8. A Great and Terrible Beauty/Rebel Angles
9. The Outcasts of 19 Shulyer Place
10. The Van Gogh Cafe

That was a really hard list, and I desperately want to add more, but I sort of picked it as the Top 10 that had the greatest impact on me. I love these all, and they also influenced me immensely. There are so many more begging to be on this list, it's just crazy.

*I know these 2 books have nothing to do with each other whatsoever, (and believe me when I say I'm not cheating to get more on the list ) but they are for some reason totally linked in my mind, oddly inseprable. Don't ask.

Re: Top 10 Fav Fiction Books

I'm not including Harry Potter in the list, because I'm a member of this site, so it's obviously one of my favorites!

In no particular order:

-Little Women
-The Lottery Rose
-The Work & The Glory: Volume I
-I'll Find You
-The Jewel Series (or Gem series, whichever it's called) by Lynn Gardner

I can't decide a best between the rest of the 10...I guess that's my top 5. Although, the Jewel/Gem series is 10 books... I'm sure I'll think of more later.

1 - Harry Potter series
2 -The Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit/ The Silmarilion - by Tolkein

An many others that I can recall the titles in English (since I read most of then in the Portuguese version) like 1984, Gone With the Wind, Narnia Chronicles, Tropic of Cancer, The Grapes of Wrath, A Passage to India, The Sun Also Rises...

Re: Top 10 Fav Fiction Books

Hm this is hard (well the first few aren't hard).

1. Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
2. His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman
3. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
4. The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova
5. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
6. David Copperfield by Charles Dickens (people think I'm nuts)
7. The Chrysalids by John Wyndham
8. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen
9. La nuit des temps by René Barjavel
10. The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
...11. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee

I couldn't not put TKAM... bah, and the worst part, one of my all time favourite writers isn't on that list because I've really just read his plays and poetry (Oscar Wilde). Though I am starting the Picture of Dorian Gray, so who knows.

Re: Top 10 Fav Fiction Books

Alright, I had a hard time with this because I like alot of books, and wasn't sure how to narrow it down. These nine are definitely at the top though.

In no particular order, these are books I just really really like:

-Harry Potter series by our dear J.K. Rowling
Synopsis: Like you guys don't know

-The Sano Ichirou mysteries, by the Laura Joh Rowland
Synopsis: It begins in 1689 when martial arts teacher/samurai Sano Ichirou has been accepted into the police force. After what seems like a typical shinju, double suicide, Sano risks everything he could possibly risk to investigate what he thinks is murder. 12 novels later, it seems Sano's intuition is not that bad. But as the sosakan-sama (Most Honorable Investigator) he (and later, his wife and close friends) must keep their wits as murder, treason, juicy scandals, lies, enemies, and the awesomely bad Yanagisawa (he's gets his own catagory ^^) sets to stand against him bringing justice to 17 century Japan.

-A Great and Terrible Beauty - The Gemma Doyle Trilogy, by Libba Bray
Synopsis: Gemma Doyle's life kind of sucks. It's the 1890's, her mum just got murdered, and she must move from India, where she grew up, to London and go to an all girls school filled with a slew of 'delightful' characters. She somehow makes friends with 3 unlikely girls & together they find out the secrets of Gemma's mum, another realm she was kinda sorta goddess of, the school and teachers tie-in with it all, and each other. Even though the endings tend to feel rushed, and the characters can be unlikable at times, I love the fantasy mixed with that time period and how the girls' issues aren't too far from home -- murder, cliques, interracial relationships, (date rape) drugs, and touchy-feely fathers to name a few.

-The Noble Dead series, by Barb and JC Hendee
Synopsis: Magiere, and her drunken half-elf friend Leesil use to make a living tricking peasants into thinking Magiere was a vampire-slayer and 'slayed' their bad spirits. Well, Magiere doesn't want to do that anymore - she wants to make an honest living tending to a bar in a seaside town. Problem is, unbeknownst to her, she really IS a vampire slayer - a real live dhampir in fact (half vampire, half human). And that town she wants to move to? Of course a family of vampires live there. Finding out that information about herself leads to the beginning of a long journey where there's no such thing as a 'coincidence'.

-Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska
Synopsis: It's 1920's New York and Sara Smolinsky realizes that she must make something of herself if she wants to get anywhere in the world. She knows she doesn't want to end up like her three sisters, who lives are practically ruined when their know-it-all father runs away their suitors and sets them up with a lying cheat, a distant gambler, and an old fish seller. But as she sets out on her own she realizes all the things she thinks will help her make it in the world - she doesn't really have. Through loneliness, triumphs and failures, Sara tries to make it through anyway.

-Goldren Compass Trilogy by Philip Pullman
Synopsis: There's a thread AND a movie on this one, go check em out!

-Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale trilogy by Holly Black
Synopsis: I've only read the first book and it's really hard to describe (but I'll try)-- After returning to her childhood home, 16 year old Kaye realizes that her 'imaginary' faerie friends are real, and she's to be the human sacrifice (tithe) in order to bind the fey (including her friends) to the services of the warring faery courts (Seelie and Unseelie) for 7 years. However, Kaye isn't really human so if she becomes the tithe, the sacrifice will go wrong and her friends will be free for 7 years. That sounds good at first, but in this world, the divide between the good and bad isn't exactly clear... this is especially true when Kaye finds herself attracted to the dark faerie knight Roiben, despite her friends calling him a 'bad person' and a murderer...

-Fire-us Trilogy by Jennifer Armstrong
Synopsis: I haven't read this in SO long, but the gist of it is -- a couple of orphans live alone in a small town in Florida after a "fire-us" breaks out into the world and kills the adults 2002. Now it's 2007 and they're running out of supplies... but a-ha! Along comes another boy by the name of "Angerman" (no one remembers their real names) who's on his way to Washington D.C. to find the President, who has somehow lived and knows what to do. Hesitant at first, the group comes together and go on the journey from Florida to D.C. in hopes to find the President (and hopefully, others).

-The Tokaido Road by Lucia St. Clair Robson
Synopsis: Another one I haven't read in a looong time -- Lady Asano, aka Cat, has revenge on her mind after her father is forced to commit suicide because Lord Kira. To avenge her father and her name, she must make a journey along the Tokaido road to Kyouto, and find her father's top samurai.
