What's Your Top 3?

Since I'm such a huge book nerd, I signed up for the Preview to Summer Blogger Book Swap. And I'm super excited to share with you all my top 3 favorite books!  



Narrowing it down to only 3 is really hard because I love a lot of different books for different reasons.  And my top 3 generally changes depending on what kind of mood I'm in.  But, here's my list: 




Stephen King is one of my all-time favorite authors.  Most people like to think that his books are all horror and gore, but those people haven't actually read his books, I've found, or else they would know that that's not really the case.  11/22/63 is a mystery, a love story, with a little paranormal twist of time travel thrown in.  It's a pretty long book, coming in at 849 pages, but I never wanted it to end! 




If you're a lover of historical fiction, like I am, then this book will really resonate with you.  Margaret George really makes these historical figures come to life and you are really rooting for Mary, Queen of Scots... even though we all know her fate.






I love this book.  I love how Pip makes a life for himself, but also never really leaves his past behind.  Just like the rest of us, he can't escape who he really is. One of my all-time favorite books and I love every single movie adaptation out there. 


So tell me, what's your top 3?

  2. I was able to download 11/22/63 on a Daily Kindle Deal and haven't read through it yet, probably due to the daunting amount of pages, but it's so encouraging to see it as one of your top reads! Historical fiction is always a favorite of mine and I love how you wrote about the author bringing the characters to life. Thanks for sharing and welcome to the swap!

    My favourite books depend on my mood too.

  4. King is definitely a talented writer. Sadly, I've only ever read one of his fiction books (The Dark Half) and his how-to about writing (On Writing), but I own a lot more. The only Dickens book I've read is A Tale of Two Cities. As an English graduate, I should be ashamed haha.
