Top Ten Books of all time

I watched High Fidelity yesterday. My brother would be proud–I bet it’s one of his top 5 movies of all time. Heh. If you’re not laughing you haven’t watched the movie recently. Get to it. John Cusack rocks.

In the spirit of High Fidelity and Top *whatever* lists, I give you…Top Ten Books of all time. (In my opinion anyway. You twilighters out there, don’t send me hate mail when Twilight doesn’t make top 10. And *shocking spoiler* it won’t.)

To kick off my first Top Ten list it’s only suitable to post a quote from High Fidelity:

Hey, I’m not the smartest guy in the world, but I’m certainly not the dumbest. I mean, I’ve read books like “The Unbearable Lightness of Being” and “Love in the Time of Cholera”, and I think I’ve understood them. They’re about girls, right? Just kidding. But I have to say my all-time favorite book is Johnny Cash’s autobiography “Cash” by Johnny Cash. –Rob Gordon

Top Ten Books by Kristin

10. No Greater Love–Danielle Steele
9. Message in a Bottle–Nicholas Sparks
8. Born in Ice (2nd book in the Born In Trilogy)–Nora Roberts
7. Cold Fire–Dean Koontz
6. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (5th book in the Harry Potter series)–J.K. Rowling

1. Rebecca–Daphne DuMaurier

Bet that last one was a shocker, wasn’t it? If you’ve been reading my blog long, you know it’s my go-to novel. What’s in your Top Ten? Better yet, what’s your #1?
