What are your favorite books?

So what are they?

My top five are:
1) "The Road to Unafraid" subtitled "How the Army's Top Ranger Faced Fear and Found Courage through Black Hawk Down and Beyond."
2) "The Thinking Toolbox" by Nathaniel and Hans Bluedorn
3) "Born to Trot" by Marguerite Henry
4) "Misty of Chincoteague" by Marguerite Henry
5) "Stormy, Misty's Foal" by Marguerite Henry

The guy who wrote that book came to my church a year or so ago and spoke to us! He seemed kinda...full of himself... But maybe he was just nervous. Super random!

I read a ton so I don't really have "favorite books" since I have about twenty all time favorites. Haha

But, five of them are:

For The Love of a Dog by Patricia McConnell

The Other End of The Leash by Patricia McConnell (I really just love everything this author has ever written, but those are my two absolute favorites)

The Eragon series (dorky, I know, but I want a dragon! And they crack me up with quotes like "he punched him in the armpit." How does that happen? Hahahaha)

Shy Boy by Monty Roberts (also slightly dorky, but an excellent read)

The Icemark Chronicles series (I just really like books where unexpected people annihilate bad guys and are "transformed" into who they are supposed to be... haha)

Fabio - 13 year old Arab/QH gelding
Hazel - 14 year old Angora goat

Atticus - 4 year old LaMancha/Alpine cross goat

Rest peacefully, Lacey.

Some of my fave reads are:

The Battleaxe Trilogy by Sara Douglass
The Mercedes Thompson series by Patricia Briggs
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Piccoult
Lonely Werewolf Girl by Martin Millar
The Nightangel Trilogy by Brent Weeks
Anne McCaffrey's Pern books
Looking For Alibrandi, Saving Francesca, On the Jellico Road, The Piper's Son - Melina Marchetta

Will add more as I think of them...

Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

Very cool! I'd love to meet him someday. =) I read his book before watching "Black Hawk Down." All through the movie I was like, "Where's Struecker? Why isn't he one of the main characters? Common! Don't you guys in Hollywood know that he was a key player in the operation???"

I forgot to say that "The Road to Unafraid" was written by Jeff Struecker.
