Book Meme!

This meme was going around on Tumblr and I thought I would give it a try. There are so many books that have stuck with me over the years, it is hard to pick just ten. And then some of them I can’t remember the names of! There was this children’s book that I checked out from the library every single time I went for like a year straight at the age of 6. I still vividly remember the part about the chocolate river, but I was 6, so I have no idea of the name of this book. (Actually, I’ve been trying to remember for years now, if it sounds familiar to anyone!) So, here we go:

Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Then tag 10 friends.

The Stand by Stephen King.
The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King.
The Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
The Outsiders and also That Was Then, This is Now by SE Hinton.
Whale Talk by Chris Crutcher.
The Hobbit and also The Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.
The Chronicles of Narnia (in particular The...Wardrobe and Dawn Treader) by C.S. Lewis.
Number The Stars by Lois Lowry.
The Pokey Little Puppy by Janette Sebring Lowrey.
C D B by William Steig.

I spent just a few minutes thinking on these and I still came up with like 20, so yeah, I scrunched a few together, which is probably cheating, but whatever. Also, I just cut the ones that were last to pop into my head, not for any 'ranking' reasons. But here are the cut ones anyways: The Elenium series by David Eddings, World War Z by Max Brooks, The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley, Bloodroots by Richie Tankersley Cusick, The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, The Deathly Hallows by JK Rowling and The Princess & The Goblin series by George MacDonald.

Alright, for tagging, I say if you follow me and your user-name starts with the letter A - M, consider yourself tagged! (Or if you name starts with something else but you just want to do this meme anyways!)
