  1. A wrinkle in time is definitely a good one. It stuck with me for a long time after reading it. As a child it was one of my favorites. Another favorite of mine is Jane Eyre. It’s long, but really a great read.


  2. On that list, I’ve read LOTR, Narnia, Little Women and Neverwhere. I’ve read some of Robin McKinley’s other fiction, not those two. My favourite of hers so far is Beauty, her delightful Beauty And The Beast novel, in which the heroine yells at the “alarmingly handsome” prince, “What have you done with my Beast?” before he explains how and why he was transformed. The curse was on his family, not him specifically. His family were such goody-goodies they annoyed a local sorcerer who told them the first family member to put a foot wrong would get it! And that, he admits ruefully, was him.

    I’ve read several other Neil Gaiman novels and am now discovering Ben Aaronovitch, whose urban fantasy is very much “if you like Neil Gaiman you’ll enjoy this.”


  3. I have read two from your favorites list
    I don’t have a particular favorite that I would want to read again an again. But I have a few favorite authors


  4. The Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia are great. As for other favourites: the Harry Potter books and Grimm’s Fairytales are high on the re-reading list 😉 Happy A-to-Z-ing.
