Rules: List ten books that have stayed with you. Don’t take more than a few minutes; don’t think too hard. They don’t have to be great works, just the ones that have touched you.
Jane Eyre- by Charlotte Bronte
Little Women- by Louisa May Alcott
Ella Enchanted- by Gail Carson Levine
Story of a Soul- by St. Therese of Lisieux
A Wrinkle in Time- by Madeleine L’Engle
Eragon- by Christopher Paolini
Surprised by Joy- by C.S. Lewis
The Screwtape Letters- by C.S. Lewis
The World’s First Love- by Fulton Sheen
The Hobbit- by J.R.R. Tolkien
From this list I realize that I’m a dork, a Catholic, I’m rather childlike and also rather practical. I like it!
The first I read whenever I want, which is rather often. I also go to it when I’m upset and read my favorite parts.
The second I must read every Advent and finish just before Christmas- so yes I’m reading it now. Not sure why, but I like this little tradition.
Ella Enchanted has a special place in my heart because I used to hate reading before I read it. It is a wonderful story that put’s love before self and I really appreciate it.
The rest have their special places as well : )
