five things challenge – Day 6: Five Favorite Books

This is a hard list because I love books. I tried to take novels from different points in my life as a reader, starting from my junior year in high school. 

1. The Awakening by Kate Chopin – my favorite book since I first read it in 1992. It's about a woman named Edna who doesn't fit in with the other women in her social circle, her marriage, and her life. It's brilliant.

2. Less Than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis – Easton Ellis' style is my favorite among contemporary writers and the characters are very memorable. 

3. Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen – I read this in college before the movie came out and was blown away. 

4. The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway – Hemingway is my favorite writer and this is my favorite of his novels. It's perfect. I've read all of Hemingway's work and TSAR is still my favorite. 

5. The Hours by Michael Cunningham – I read this in my book club when I lived in Canada and it's one of those books that his stayed with me. It won a Pulitzer and there is a reason for that. I've read many books that have interwoven plots, but Cunningham does it better than anyone. If you haven't read it, you should.
