BTT: Only Five Books!

This week's Booking Through Thursday question:
If you had to pick only 5 books to read ever again, what would they be and why?
My answer:

It's kind of hard to choose only five but here we go:

1. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon

This book is downright endearing and funny. Even though the last time I read this book was years ago, I still remember how I used to chuckle at the main character, Christopher's thoughts and conversations with other people.

2. Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta

I read this book twice and oh no, I can't believe I haven't watched the movie yet! It is because of this book that I name Marchetta as one of my favourite authors. The only other book I've read by her is Jellicoe Road but that one is brilliant as well! In Looking for Alibrandi, I like the story, its flow and of course, the characters and what brings them together.

3. The True Story of Lilli Stubeck by James Aldridge

I remember liking this book because of how studious Lilli Stubeck was when she was under the care of an older, more cultured lady. Somehow, it was like a motivation for me to study harder and to read more books!

4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

This was among the first few classics that I've read and so far, I've liked only this! I keep watching the movie version too, the one starring Anna Paquin. Why I like this story? Hmm, probably because of the relationship between Mr Rochester and Jane, though I think Mr Rochester is way too old for her.

5. The Harry Potter books by J.K. Rowling (Yeah, I know it's already more than five, but any of the Harry Potter books will do)

Should I explain this?? Haha! I like the books because of the characters especially Ron and Hermione! :)

What books would you read again?


  1. Hi!
    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night was a great book. Haven't read your others. I'll have to check them out. Have a great day!

    Food for Thought

  2. Creations by Laurel-Rain Snow: Yes, those are rather popular books! But well-written nevertheless.

    Sherrie: It is, isn't it? It's a shame Haddon hasn't written more on it.

  3. Jayne Eyre and Harry Potter are popular in the selections today.

  4. Aww, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night—excellent pick for the list. It's been such a long time since I've read that book. I think your post might have just inspired me to move it up on the TBR pile!

    Thanks for sharing your picks!

  5. Yup, I have Harry Potter and Jane Eyre on mine as well :)

  6. Hey I just ran across your blog by hitting "next blog" It's wonderful I will surely be coming back :)
