Top Ten Books/Authors I'm Thankful For...

Hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, what are the top ten books/authors you are thankful for...

1.) Gone With The Wind: I'm thankful for a spunky Irish heroine in the South and her scallywag Yankee.
2.) The Help with Skeeter's passion, Aibileen's strength, Minny's honesty and poor Constantine. Plus an extra helping of chocolate pie.
3.) The Thornbirds - I'm always thankful for sweeping sagas and forbidden love.
4.) Anything Richard Scarry - My favorite character was Lowly Worm.
5.) Anything Bill Bryson - The man travels for me and I feel like I've been to these places plus he's hilarious. 
6.) A lot of Christopher Moore - Also hilarious. Especially the book, Lamb.
7.) Wuthering Heights - Perfect for winter.
8.) Jane Eyre - Also perfect for winter.
9.) A Tree Grows In Brooklyn - Classic!
10.) Harry Potter series - Ah, to live at Hogwart's...

And since it is Thanksgiving, I gotta mention The Hunger Games series - gives me goosebumps.

Happy Turkey Day to everyone!

Great list Katie! I didn't include JK Rowling on my list and I feel bad about that... but not enough to change it ;)

I've never read Christopher Moore, but I've heard he's pretty funny!

I haven't read Moore either, but I do have one of his books on my shelf... just waiting for me to read. Not Lamb, but one of the vampire ones.

I am so glad you've discovered the world of Harry Potter! It really was just waiting there for you!
