Of course, the first person on mine asked me to list off my Top 5 books.
That's like asking me to name my favorite child!
(hint, it's actually one of the cats)
I think I've figured out what to put on my list.
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER:
No, I haven't seen the movies. The book is NOT 3 movies long and I've refused.
Again, I haven't seen the movie because I hold the book in such high regard and it's a bit of nostalgia for me.
Because it's fantastic.
The "love story" is totally unhealthy but the characters are so engaging you end up cheering for them. The world-building is fantastic and the writing is beautiful.
The Scarlet Letter
It's actually one of the few I read most of the way through. I've written several papers for English classes (both mine and others ha!) about this novel.
The Clan of the Cave Bear
Trigger warning for a rape scene. It's short but totally makes sense for the characters and plot development.
I've read this book so many times I can't remember. The rest of the series was very meh and this book works fine as a standalone!
