30 Day Book Challenge – Day 22

Today’s prompt: Favorite book you own

I actually don’t own that many books. I check the majority of the ones I read out of the library – I mean, why buy it and keep it at your house forever when you can borrow it for free?

Anyway, because I can rarely pick just one, here are my favorite three:

1. Requiem for the Sun – Elizabeth Haydon (Epic fantasy, fourth in a series)
Do not read this book if you hate reading long, drawn-out descriptions of scenery and setting. But other than that, it’s a lovely fantasy without the usual cliches.

2. Needful Things – Stephen King (If you’re going to read anything by the master of horror, read this one first.)
Over 700 pages, but the characters are intriguing and the story is fast-paced, so you’ll plow right through it. “The more trouble one has to go through for something one owns, the more one desires to keep that thing.” Yog-Sothoth Vintage Motors!

3. It’s My Life – Melody Carlson (YA Christian novel, second in a series)
This one’s written in diary format and all the characters and situations are very realistic. Highly recommended for Christian teens out there. The book definitely is not preachy in tone – it’s quite down to earth.

  1. Wow, I haven’t read any of those. I don’t think I own them, either. (Having worked in a bookstore, I own a lot of books I haven’t read. Plus I got a lot of extras after getting married.)


  2. Cool picks, Maggie.

    I’m with you about books. My bookcases are filled with non-fiction books that I tend to read more than once, or at least refer back to. In contrast, I much prefer to borrow novels from the library because I rarely read them more than once.


    • I probably own more nonfiction than fiction, too – mostly college textbooks I’ve kept that I thought would come in handy or would be interesting to read again.
