Top tens are always subject to change. It's so hard to pinpoint just ten out of the thousands of possibilities. Still, these books will always remain very firm favourites. Willing to rave about these books forever and then some.
Best book written in the whole entire history of the world ever. Fact.
Where to start? It's insane how GENIUS this is. Kid you not.
This book is geek hot. Bunch of students studying Greek, lots of angst, lots of Greek God games, murder, incest. Thank you, please.
So ridiculously clever.
Slight crush on the crazy murderer here. I see some patterns forming. Fetish?
Harrowing, harrowing, harrowing but sensational. The end seriously wowed me, and really disturbed me. Excellent!
Where would any one be without the Brothers Grimm? Make sure you're reading the original versions, not the yicky ones.
Just thoroughly incredible for so, so many reasons. Nabakov had such a great, really raw talent. Stylistically it's fantastic. Somehow the narrator ropes you in to thinking that actually maybe what he's doing is actually okay. Wrrrong.
Again this comes up with my fascination of fairy tales. That, and Carter is a stunning writer. I really admire what she does and could only wish that some of that talent would rub off on me.
Just sensational. Don't think I've ever cried so hard at a book - and that's saying something!
