Aaah! I don't know if I can choose just ten. I'll try though.

1. The Joy Luck Club
2. The Giver
3. The Silmarillion
4. The 10000 secret senses
5. The Good Earth
6. A great and terrible beauty
7. Animal farm
8. Gathering Blue
9. Swiss family Robinson
10. Anthem

I love pretty much all mythology, but that would make a list in itself, so these are my non-mythology favs.

For me, listing my favorite books is like listing which necessary function I would rather keep doing--breathing, sleeping, eating, walking, etc. I like almost every book I read...otherwise why would I be reading it?...so pretty much every book is on my favorites list, in no particular order.

But since every one else has a list, I'll list some books that I've read recently (the past month or so)...these aren't in chronological order....

Everything Is Illuminated
Howl's Moving Castle
A Handmaid's Tale
Memoirs of a Geisha
Birth of Venus
Elizabeth I
Ella Enchanted (definitely the best Cinderella version)
Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister
His Dark Materials
Lost
