My Top Ten Books List

I think I might be the kind of person that would give you a different answer or different list depending on the day you asked me, but here it goes. Like Andrew’s list, there is no particular order here, and I’d say these are the books that have impacted me significantly (though their purely literary merit may differ greatly…but that’s not everything, is it?)

1) Ender’s Game

2) Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (and the entire series)

3) The Giver

4) The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander

5) Xenocide (in the Ender’s Game series)

6) Redwall series

7) The Secret Garden

8) The Hobbit

9) My Side of the Mountain

10) The Mars Diaries (going back to elementary school, but hey…)
