Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme that asks you a bookish question. Sometimes the questions are rather easy to answer and other times they are rather difficult and you really have to think about the answer. Kind of like this week's question.
Question: If you had to pick only 5 books to ever read again, what would they be and why?
You know, I had a rather tough time with this one as there are many books I like to re-read, but to choose only five to ever read again, well, that is a different matter entirely. I thought at first it wouldn't be a problem, but as I started thinking about it, I kept crossing books off the list and changing it. This is what ended up being on my final list.
I chose this one because I credit this one with changing my perspective on the human race and evolution, and led me into quite a long phase where I did a lot of research on the human species and the issue of creationism and evolution. It also solidified some religious beliefs I had been uncertain about for quite a while. For some reason, this book really had a profound effect on me spiritually as well as mentally. It was also one of those books where I had to be ready to read it as I had three false starts before I finally sat down one night and read it in its entirety in one sitting. Let's just say I had a hard time concentrating at school the next day! LOL
Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier
Elizabeth is my hero!! I enjoy the twists and turns in this story, and the sarcastic play on words that exists in here. Such fun!!
Magician by Raymond E. Feist
I love her mysteries and am drawn to the fact that she can stump me time and time again, simply because I missed the tiniest of clues or was not paying attention to all of the facts. I devoured every single one of her novels and enjoyed most of them. I have never had a problem re-reading them, even if I do know who the murderer is, as I can pay attention to the clues and how I missed them, and how I was led astray. It's a lot of fun to figure out.
