pushinginthepin tagged me to talk about 10 books that are meaningful to me. Books and I have an a long love affair. This was no easy task.
Quick side story: Rob and I sold our first place before we had found a new house to live in. We had to move into this temporary apartment while we were search for the house I now live in. Most of our stuff ended up in storage while were lived in this apartment. One night we were laying in bed and I was so sad because none of my books were with me. I might have been having a little fit about the sucky situation. The next day when I came home from work all of my boxed up books were sitting in the apartment. Rob had gone over to the storage place and dug out all the books and brought them back for me. That is true love.
So here is my list of 10 books I love in no particular order:
1. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
2. Pride & Prejudice
3. Daughter of Smoke and Bone
4. The Chronicles of Narnia
5. The Complete Poems of Emily Dickinson
6. The Poisonwood Bible
7. The Cider House Rules
8. An Abundance of Katherines
10. The Lord of the Rings
P.S. I should have added Fangirl but that lives on my nightstand and I forgot to go get it. Forgive me Rainbow.
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not.
