Your personal favorites

Image hosted by

Yet again, I must start a post in bibliotalk with "I don't know if this is allowed".

I think that one can learn a lot about one's taste in books by reading reviews, but even more by reading a list of a blogger's personal favorite books. I'm sure that we have all filled out the 'books' section in our profiles, so why not simply copy and paste our selections into comments on this entry? Reading through these lists may give us all some background information on the reviewer's taste in literature. This might be helpful while considering reviews on bibliotalk, don't you agree? I'll start:

Cut, Wasted: The Memoir of an Anorexic and Bulimic, The Great Gatsby, Of Mice and Men, Stargirl, The Picture of Dorian Gray, Dangerous Angels: The Weetzie Bat Books, Violet and Claire, The Belljar, The Feed, Burgerwuss, Thirsty, Branded: The Buying and Selling of Teens, Born Confused, Hard Love, The Gospel Acording to Larry, Jinx, Buddhism Without Beliefs, Born Confused, the Gossip Girl books, the Harry Potter books, A Chamber of Horrors, Wuthering Heights, Romeo and Juliet, This Lullaby, Elvis by the Presleys, Taming of the Shrew, Modern Feminisms

Hmm - I love this idea - especially since I have been considering reading a couple of these books, like Born Confused, and Branded: The Buying and Selling of Teens. And I do agree, you get an idea of a person's perspective from a list like this. Like I could write, I totally hated such and such a book, but if all my favorite books are books YOU hated, and so on . . .

Some of my all time faves: Geek Love, Invisible Cities, There Is Room For You, The Man Who Ate Everything, The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven.

I'll probably add more later, these are just off the top of my head.

Off Kiss Me Kate's list, I loved loved loved Feed, but haven't read most of them.
