Rules: In a text post, list 10 books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard—they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you.
I. The Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling - The first book literally taught me to read, if anyone is curious I can tell that story…
II. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket - These books are like… really formative for my style and a lot of how I coped when things got bad.
III. Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelse - I read this book at a time in my life when I was filled with anger, it touched my heart and gave me the mental tools to rid myself of that anger before I rotted from the inside out.
IV. The Giver (And the three companion novels) by Lois Lowrey - I love them, The Giver was the book that set me off into my love of dystopic fiction
V. The Ender/Bean Saga/Series by Orson Scott Card - Ender’s game was another book that came into my life at a rough time (I’ve had a lot of those…) and it filled a need that I didn’t know I had. It also shaped a lot of my leadership skills.
VI. Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill - I don’t know why this book means so much to me but I must have read it a million times when I was about eleven and hundreds of times since then… I loved it and I always will
VII. The Earth Children series by Jean M. Auel - The first thing I ever masturbated to, the book that gave me the GENDERS (made me question the gender binary, gave me the first set of words that I used to describe my gender, made me feel good about my gender feels), better than any sex ed book
VIII. First Test (and every other Tortall book) by Tamora Pierce - I didn’t get to most of these until later in life but… More books that fueled my habit of basing personal beliefs off of books.
IX. The Inheritence Cycle by Christopher Paolini - Just… so good…
X. The Shadow Children series by Margret Peterson Haddix - I love these books so much, my mom and I read them together and they mean a lot to me. I should really reread them again…
God this list was hard… I forgot every book I’ve ever read as I was writing it.
I tag… YOU.
If you like the sound of this, you’ll love this fic I read recently called "Cunning and Ambition"
It was abandoned in the sixth book due to a lack of reviews but it’s still totally worth the read.
ME! Or, at least, I think I am… I get a LOT of crushes and stuff all at once and I know I wouldn’t have an issue with a poly relationship but I have no good relationship expirience so…
