- 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
This is my all time favourite book. I read this book in grade 12 and since then I've read it, at least, 6 times. I don't know why I like so much but I do.
- Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz
Easily my second favourite book, which I've read 4 or more times and every time I cry. But it looks like I lent it out so I think I need to buy a new copy. I love Odd and Stormy (characters). I've read all the Odd Thomas books but the 1st is my favourite.
- Dreamcatcher by Stephen King
One of the first Stephen King books I read and I've read it twice now, although a third reading is probably in order. It's also the first book-movie combo I've enjoyed, even though they completely changed the ending.
- Head Hunter by Michael Slade
If you live in Vancouver you should read this book! I am really good at figuring out whodunits but this one had me guessing to the end (you won't guess the killer). I've read it (and most of the Special X series) at least twice. I tried to get Danny to read it (in exchange for reading the Dark Tower series) but he didn't make it far. I recommend to anyone and eveyone, although it's a good idea to have a twisted curiosity into the mind of serial killers and a bit of a strong stomach (I haven't read past Swastika because I found it the hardest of the books to read, although I want to catch up to the series)
- Angels & Demons by Dan Brown
I'm one of the odd ones out there that liked Angels & Demons better than Da Vinci Code. I really enjoyed the ending and was highly disappointed they didn't stick to it in the movie.
- Charlotte's Web by E.B White
This was one of my favourites as a child. I still own my copy and plan on reading it to the kids when they get older.
- The Cat in the Hat by Dr.Seuss
Another childhood favourite and I love reading it to Lynden, even though it's over 50 pages!
- Stephen King's The Dark Tower SeriesI finished reading a book, I don't remember which one, and Danny chose my next book, which was the Gunslinger. I found the book to be painful and beyond boring, but I agreed to read the next book (The Drawing of Three) and I really enjoyed it. By the time I got The Waste Lands I was in love with the characters. As I am reading the last of the series (although Stephen King is releasing another book) I think I am going to go back and re-read the Gunslinger.
- Dean Koontz' Frankenstein SeriesI started the series in 2005, not realizing it was going to be a series. In 2009 Koontz came out with the 3rd book so I powered through the series and really enjoyed it. Last Christmas I learned there were 2 more books published, so Danny got them for me for Christmas and they were much better than I thought they would be. I highly recommend the series.
- By the Light of the Moon by Dean Koontz
In case you're keeping track that makes 3 Dean Koontz books/series. This book he made it so easy to love the characters and want to see them succeed at everything (very similar to One Door Away From Heaven, which if I was going to add another would be it, bringing my Koontz total to 4)
