POPULAR FAVOURITES

There are a bunch of books on my shelves that I don't quite know what to do with. Every time I peruse the shelves looking for a book to write about, one that I loved or that meant something to me, I pause when I reach them but feel a sense of futility when I seriously consider writing about them. This isn't because they aren't worth writing about - quite the opposite. They are so popular or so well known that I just don't know if I have anything new to add to the discussion. So I have decided to make an on-going list of these as they occur to me. Take this list as a recommendation without specifics. They are classics for a reason.

In no particular order:
1. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte
2. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
3. The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
4. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
5. The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling
6. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
7. The complete works of Jane Austen
8. Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
9. The Twilight Saga (I'm not saying that it's a classic, just enjoyable...but over-hyped and I have nothing else to say on the subject.)
