We all have those book memories. Those long or short walks to the library, stroking the book spines on the shelves. Pulling out one that caught your eye and curling up in the corner preparing to be whisked away.
We all have those books. The books that never quite left us. The books that stay embedded in our heart, and that we long to revisit. There is nothing like cracking open that favourite and revisiting some old friends. Whether we are battling monsters, slaying dragons, spicing up some witches brew or living on a farm with a girl and her beloved pig and spider.
They can be old loves or new favourites, we all have them!
The Books I Can't Live Without
My hard copy of Charlotte's Web is very loved. The Spine is cracked, and it has weathered some storms, but it will always remain one that I revisit as often as I can. Even if I just flip it open and read a passage or two!
This book is one of my favourites for a few different reasons. It reignited by love for reading. For some reason, I went a few years barely reading. Then, because of the craze, I picked up Twilight, and it reminded me how magical reading can be. When a book can remind you of that passion, I think it deserves a spot on your "Can't live without" book list!
Can I read this book without crying yet? NO! This was one of my mother's favourites to read to us when we were children. It is now an obvious go-to when reading to my Niece, and will be one when I have children of my own someday.
This book will be one that I will re-read any chance I can get! I try to revisit these amazing characters/friends at least once a year..Sometimes twice! Andy and Alex take up a lot of room in my heart!
Again, another character that will never leave me; Lina. When I admire my bookshelves from time to time, I still stop on this book and can hear Lina's story all over again.
I was not surprised when this one won Goodreads Choice 2012. This books is nothing short from perfect.
This a new favourite, but in years will become an old love. One of the most beautifully told tales I have ever come across. Magical, heart-wrenching...It's just a leave-you-speechless kind of read!
Nicholas Sparks will always be a forever favourite author of mine. But it is this book that really captured my heart. It's the dog lover in me!
I'm sure if you've read this, it would be on your list as well. I consider Mia my book BFF!
Powerful yet heartbreaking. How I wish I had read this book in high school! But it will be one that I forever recommend!
It's so hard to narrow down from all of the books you've read. But when you think about those favourites, you can't help but notice those few that stick out the most. The ones that left you in awe. The ones that made you laugh or cry. Those books that you just can't live without!
