Fifteen Books

I got razed a little on twitter yesterday for being a library lady and asking for book suggestions. Then I ran across this meme. So here we go

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you've read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes. Tag 15 friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing what books my friends choose. (To do this, go to your Notes tab on your profile page, paste rules in a new note, cast your 15 picks, and tag people in the note - upper right hand side).

The God of Small Things - Arundhati Roy
East of Eden - John Steinbeck
The Time Travelers Wife - Audry Niffengger
The Shack - William P. Young
Grapes of Wrath - John Steinbeck
A tree Grows in Brooklyn - Beth Smith
A movable Feast - Ernest Hemingway
Cider House Rules - John Irving
Terms of Endearment - Larry mcMurtrey
Snow Flower and the Secret Fan Lisa See
The Blind Assassin - Margaret Atwood
The Robber Bride - Margaret Atwood
Jitterbug Perfume - Tom Robbins
The Story of Edgar Sawtelle - David Wroblewski
Garden Primer - Barbara Dramrosch

I would like to add one thing. I have read or would read other books by any of these authors. They were just the first fifteen that popped into my mind.

I am not tagging anyone, if you want to play do. I would love to know what books you loved or were moved by in some way.

Have a great weekend.
