Favorite Books of All Time:
Here is a list of my 10 favorite books/series from all of my years of existence. I have many more favorites, but here are just a few that stand out.
01 The Land of Stories: Chris Colfer
I am not listing these in any particular order, but when I sat down and thought about which books/series I should put in this page, this series definitely was one of the first to come to mind. The series has two main characters, Alex and Connor Bailey who are twins. They go on adventures inside of The Land of Stories, a book that their grandmother read fairy tales to them from. I have a review on each of these books that you can look at on Goodreads, or even on here! The link for my Goodreads review is and my blog post review is here. Just to add on, if you have ever watched or heard of the television show “Glee”, you may recognize Chris Colfer as Kurt Hummel, who is a main character in the hit TV show! The series starts with book 01: The Wishing Spell, then The Enchantress Returns, A Grimm Warning, Beyond The Kingdoms, An Authors Odyssey, and last but not least Words Collide.
02 The Chronicles of Narnia: Clive Staples Lewis
The seven Narnia books and The Land of Stories books are the main books that really triggered my love for reading. The Narnia books tell a story about 4 siblings, Lucy, Edmund, Susan, and Peter who go to live with a professor in the rural outskirts of London to stay safe from the bombings from World War II. They undercover a hidden portal that takes them into the world of Narnia where animals can talk, magic exists, and it is always winter but never Christmas. The kids have several deep fantasy adventures that leave me speechless! I definitely recommend this to any reader who loves a great fantasy series. My reviews on this series are on both Goodreads and this blog.
03 The Lunar Chronicles: Marissa Meyer
I love to read fantasy, so these books caught my eye the minute I started walking down the YA section in Barnes and Noble. There are 6 books in the series and they are basically retellings of all of our favorite classic fairy tales but in the future. For example, Cinder is the first book of the series, and she is like our classic Cinderella, only she is half cyborg half human. This is a super interesting and very clever series and I definitely recommend!
04 Artemis Fowl: Eoin Colfer
The Artemis Fowl series main character’s name is Artemis Fowl (obviously!). Artemis is a genius twelve-year-old who has a servant named Butler. Together the two get mixed up in weird situations with fairies and other mythical creatures – I definitely recommend to any reader who likes books that are supposed to be serious, but are actually hysterically comedic too!
05 I am Malala: Malala Yousafzai
I am Malala is an autobiography written by Malala herself. It tells the story of Malala’s life in Pakistan and her protest for education. This is a great book and I definitely think it is good for any type of reader to enjoy, and it is always good to learn the differences and similarities between different cultures. Follow me on Goodreads: ‘Libbylongstocking’ to see my review.
06Alice in Wonderland: Lewis Carrol
I love these books! They are very uplifting and positive and they make me smile anytime I re-read them! I definitely recommend these books to any reader, no matter what age or what interest! You have probably already heard of these books or movies before, but just in case you haven’t, the books tell a story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit hole and finds herself in the land of Wonderland.
