Ahh, the classic “what is your favourite book?” question that strikes fear into the heart of every bookworm. As we all know, this is not a simple question to answer! My traditional response would be panicking, then a blank stare, followed by a severe case of conversational crickets. Thank goodness I can pick 10 books for this week’s prompt; if I had to choose just one I think my mind would start imploding. Seriously!
As of today, I’ve read 80 books this year, and I’ve loved some of those a lot more than others. This time last year I decided to rank my top 10 picks… and ooohh boy did it give so many guilty feelings! I loved each one of those books for dozens of different reasons, and ranking one above the other was so hard to do. This year I’m going to be a little sneaky: I’ll still choose ten books, but they’ll be split up into ten different categories. Hopefully this will 1) be the fairest way, and 2) cut down on my future guilt when I accidentally stumble across this post in a few months’ time!
