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. Tag [ten] friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them.
1. Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry - Same author of The Giver. This one hit me hard as a preteen.
2. His Dark Materials by Phillip Pulman
3. Le Petit Prince (The Little Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
4. The Bone Doll’s Twin by Lynn Flewelling - One of my very favourite fantasy novels/trilogy.
5. The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay - Another monster of a fantasy series that I was so proud of finish in my teens.
6. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman
7. Zone by Marcel Dubé - A french play I read as part of my Lit class.
8. Les Filles de Caleb by Arlette Cousture - Classic French Canadian series
9. Harry Potter by J.K Rowling - Now this one wasn’t all that remarkable to me when I read the series as a preteen but I could never have escaped its cultural impact. It shaped the way I could discuss and enjoy future books and media with others and left a mark on my generation.
10. I Am a Pencil: A Teacher, His Kids, and Their World of Stories by Sam Swope
