'Reading a book is like re-writing it for yourself. You bring to a novel, anything you read, all your experience of the world. You bring your history and you read it in your own terms.'- Angela Carter

  1. I barely know these books! :D Heard a lot of good about Noughts and Crosses but haven't read them yet. I have a lot of reading to do still. :D

  2. Great List! Harry Potter is always a good choice :-) I used to love the Babysitters Club too! Tanks for stopping by my TTT.

  3. Oh wow, what a great list and I've read so many of them too! I have got to re-read HP again soon. It's been a while. ;-)

  4. You're the second list today that has featured the Noughts and Crosses series that I loved so much many moons ago. I completely forgot about it though when making my list for two reasons.. 1. I can no longer find my books of the series (this is heart breaking). 2. This made me completely forget about them beause I looked through my books to help me with this week's post.

  5. Noughts and Crosses! I always forget about that series! It's been so long since I've read it! And yay for HP!
    I definitely need to check out a couple of the books on your list :)
    Great list!

  6. Great List! I liked The Handmaid's Tale, too. And of course Harry Potter. I read a bunch of the Babysitter's Club as a kid, too.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Wow, I have some reading to do. The only one on your list that I've read is Harry Potter although I have heard some really good things about the Blackdagger Brotherhood books. Thanks for visiting my TTT.

  10. I forgot about the BSC series...one of my favorites growing up. Awesome list!

  11. The Handmaid's Tale and 1984...classic dystopians done right. Not a huge Steinbeck fan personally, but I also loved HP and Memoirs of a Geisha. :)

  12. The only ones I read from your list are HP, Twilight, and Of Mice and Men (YEARS ago)

    Thanks for stopping by!
