Answer: This week it might be easier to venture over to our top 25 lists on the left hand side of the blog. Our favorite books are those that produce strong emotions, unless of course, they produce too much emotion in which case they get chucked across the room. Sorry for the lack of surprises on this week’s list...
- The Pillars of the Earth (Ken Follett) – What a rollercoaster ride! The Hamleigh’s are one of the most villainous family’s in all of literature. How easy they made it to cheer for Jack, Philip, Tom and Aliena.
- The Kite Runner (Khaled Hosseini) – The end scene caused eye redness for almost a month.
- Les Miserables (Victor Hugo) – Despite the length of this novel, it left us with a feeling of get-up-out-of-the-chair-and-do-something-to-make-the-world-better feeling.
- Wuthering Heights (Emily Bronte) – Hate and anger are pretty much the only two emotions utilized during the reading of this book. Have we mentioned before that we absolutely LOATH Heathcliff?
- The Harry Potter Series (J.K. Rowling) – Pretty much every emotion is called upon multiple times throughout this series.
- Jude the Obscure (Thomas Hardy) – This novel would fall into the throwing across the room variety.
- Bag of Bones (Stephen King) – At the time we wanted to pick Max Devore out of his wheel chair and inflict pain. Our therapy sessions are ongoing...
- Three Men in a Boat (Jerome K. Jerome) – Side splitting laughter.
Have a great week and head on over to The Broke and the Bookish to join the fun!
