Best of My Library

    By Verena Schleich

    This is a list of my favourite books that I think everyone should read. Some are truly moving, and have literally changed my life. Some are captivating. Some are just pure fluff for on a cold winter night. In any case, consider them.

      Absolutely the most perspective changing book I have every read, and the most beautiful. There are no words to describe this book without making it sound ridiculous, but just try it.

      This is my favourite book, period. It is all at once sad and romantic, beautiful and whimsical. This book is a faerie tale that explores what happens when the power of wishes leaves a woman struck by lightening and fascinated by death.

      A Great And Terrible Beauty  

      Libba Bray

      List Price: $23.95

      Despite being a teen book, this is a lot of fun. Not a lot of depth, perhaps, but a touch of magic and feminism in Victorian England is hard not to enjoy.

      Half dystopic literature, half adventure novel. Really exciting, if a little conceptually scary.

      Inner ramblings of a crazy man, one of the few humans left, in a post-genetically engineered-apocalyptic world. Enough said.

      Four Letter Word: Original Love Letters  

      List Price: $21.00 You Save: $5.04 (24%)

      A complete mix in here, but it is a lovely book in that the love letters within the book aren't all roses and happiness - real, raw, beautiful. Some better than others - definitely recommend reading the ones by Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen, and, my personal favourite, the Anonymous letter.

      This was one of my favourite books as a child - and it stands the test of time. This book raised me from a weird little girl to a slightly eccentric feminist type woman who likes dragons.

      This entire series is just really, really fun. They are easy, fun reads that you can fly through but really enjoy. They are the best of the urban fantasy genre - enough fantasy and romance to enjoy, but still well written and (relatively) relate-able.

      This series is laugh-out-loud hilarious; definitely worth reading, but maybe not when you're on the bus and don't want people looking at you as you laugh to yourself.
