    American Gods by Neil Gaiman has been my absolute favorite novel I have ever had the privilege of reading (or rather, listening to the audiobook).
    Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
    I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
    I shall endure.
    What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

    I have a few and they have all changed how I viewed a situation or myself. (In no particular order)

    Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom
    Zoo Story: Life in the Garden of Captives by Thomas French
    Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor E Frankl
    Unbearable Lightness: A Story of Loss and Gain by Portia de Rossi (I bawled reading this one)

    The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich by William L. Shirer. Got to probably be the best overall book I have ever read. 1200 pages and never got boring, I couldn't put it down.

    The Anne of Green Gables series has been my favorite since elementary school and I reread it ever five years or so. It was that book for me. The one I first fell in love with, the one that made me a bookworm.

    I can also read Beloved by Toni Morrison over and over. And The Stand (King) is one of my absolute favorites. Johnathan Strange and Mr. Norrell.

    The Prophet (Gibran) was given to me by a Big Sister while I was in foster care and its probably the closest thing I have to a Bible.

    The Yellow Wallpaper was disturbing. Free online, short story from 1892 that completely exposes how absolutely horrific life could be for women in the care of well-meaning but sexist men/doctors. Go read it right now! It'll creep you out.

    Dahlgren was the craziest book I've ever read but was strangely fascinating, unlike any other novel, so it's on the list, too.


    Not a favorite and not bad, but The Kite Runner has to be the most depressing book I've ever read in my life and I think it may have seriously traumatized me.



    Oh, and The Giving Tree.

    Who doesn't love the Giving Tree? It's one of my childhood favorites and now my daughter absolutely loves it as well.

    David Eddings is probably one of my favourite authors ever, along with David Gemell, Karen Chance, and Raymond E Feist. Picking any one favourite is impossible for me....

    I'm a rereader. The harry potter series, Alas Babylon, LOTR, The HObbit, IT, The Stand,

    Put me on a desert island with the foxfire series and the old boy scout field guide, and those books and I'm good. A cave without a bear would be nice to.

    Good Omens by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman is my very favourite book. I like books by either author, but Good Omens is special.

    There are many other books I would rank as "favourites" but they're all a step down from Good Omens in my book, although, the closest book that would compare to it is Mortal Coils by Eric Nylund, which is like a young adult version of American Gods that no one's heard of....

    The entire Tolkien bibliography (Silmarillion, Hobbit, and Children of Hurin being my favorite three complete stories), From Hell is my favorite graphic novel, Fahrenheit 451 is my favorite dystopia, the Popol Vuh is my favorite myth cycle, and I'm working on finding my favorite book on gender and sexuality.
