byslantedlight: (Doyle books)
[livejournal.com profile] caffyolay gave me Top Five books for an entry, and so that's what this will be! Except - so hard! Well, sort of... I mean, book series count, right...? *g* Also, major caveat, these are my current top-five, and I reserve the right to change them at any time! Plus, in a random order as I think of them.

1. Jackdaw by K.J. Charles (and, you know, the other Charm of Magpie books in the series *g*)


2. Point of Hopes (and Point of Knives, Point of Dreams and Fair's Point) by Lisa Barnett and Melissa Scott

3. Patrick O'Brian's Aubrey/Maturin series...

4. Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (well of course)
TolkienBooks

5. The Persian Boy by Mary Renault (which of course has a sequel... *g*)


The fifth one was so hard to choose! I thought maybe I shouldn't include any more of my current favourite re-reads, but on the other hand, what's a re-read if not a favourite book? So then it should have been the Mathey/Lynes books by Melissa Scott and Amy Griswold, or Joanna Chambers' Enlightenment books or the Society of Gentlemen trilogy by K.J. Charles.. But then just cos I haven't re-read them lately... hmmn... Joanna Harris' Chocolat or Blackberry Wine? Or oh, I used to love Mists of Avalon by Marion Bradley... or... or... oh, just gosh! And that's not counting all the other books on my bookshelf where I thought oh-I-loved-that-I-must-read-that-again-soon... But I guess the above are my go-to books for re-reading. I might be re-reading the Points books right now, in fact... *g* I've got quite comfort-read-y over the last years too, so I do re-read even more than I used to. I can probably blame fanfic for that gorgeous bad habit...

What about you - what's your favourite book?
