Love List #9- Nine Books I've Loved at Some Point in My Life
Posted Feb 09 2010 5:30am
So I have a reading problem, but even more bizarre I don't have a single favorite book. I can tell you books I've liked and books I haven't, but there aren't any I want to read and read and read again. So, I've put together a list of books I've loved at different times, for different reasons. And if I had to pick some favorite books, most of these would probably make the list. They are in no order other than my ability to remember them.
1. Left to Tell by Immaculée Ilibagiza (December 2009)
2. The Surrendered Wife by Laura Doyle (2007- had been married 3 years)
3. Eats, Shoots and leaves by Lynne Truss (after being a jr high English teacher)
4. Paradise by Judith McNaught (in college)
5. Animal Farm by George Orwell (2 years ago) I swear I read this book in high school and HATED it. I blame my teacher. I don't even remember which teacher I read it with, so I can't even hunt them down and complain. Because, now I LOVE it and all of my kids love it because I teach it from the historical perspective and we make fun of the Russians and it's perfect to then learn about WW2 and Cold War.
6. These is My Words by Nancy Turner (after living in AZ)
7. Glass Castle by Jeannette Wells (after teaching poor students)
8. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell (high school)
9. Motherhood and Hollywood by Patricia Heaton (last year) This book opened up the whole world of autobiographical works for me. I've since gone on to listen to books by other famous comedians, Bill Engeval and Ellen DeGeneres, that have cracked me up! Always fun!
