Top Five Tuesday: Most Influential Books

Earlier this month, Melissa at Avid Reader’s Musings posted her Most Influential Books. She was inspired by this post by Jillian at Random Ramblings. The challenge is to list books that have influenced your life, without explaining why. So, here are my Top Five Ten:

  1. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
  2. A Bargain for Frances by Russell Hoban
  3. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery
  4. A Study in Scarlet by Arthur Conan Doyle
  5. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  6. Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis
  7. The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien
  8. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
  9. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J. K. Rowling
  10. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

As a reminder:  Thoughtful Third Thursday (T3) is this Thursday, 4/17/14!

    I like the disclaimer “without saying why”. It leaves the list open to interpretation and the list-maker becomes mysterious and intriguing in the process. ;p

    Pretty great list! I agree that providing no explanation is an interesting twist and encourages creative speculation but I do kind of want to know the real reasons behind their influence.
