Top 10 Books

This will be a topic of much discussion because it might change a lot overtime.

I love so many books, so many writers and so many genres. So I am choosing books that made an impact in my life. They may or may not be so good in the eyes of the critics but I am only selecting them for the  impact they had and have in my life. And yes sometimes a poorly written book can still be entertaining and the story can be good. SOme very bad books also gave me the hope that if this crap can be published, so can I.

  1. All That Remains by Patricia Cornwell (if it wasn’t for this book I would have never become a reader so it is and will always be number 1)
  2. The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien (What a masterpiece, I loved it then, I love it now, I will always love it)
  3. The Dark Tower Series by Stephen King ( the worlds Stephen King shows us in the Dark Tower series is vivid and I always want more. For long King was the only thing I would read. I have all his works and some are amazing some are good and there are one or two I couldn’t make my way past the first hundred pages. But what a master.)
  4. The Complete works of Edgar Allen Poe by Edgar Allen Poe ( I am a sucker for Poe and love his work. And just like the masses I love The Raven …)
  5. The Necronomicon by H.P. Lovecraft ( I so enjoy this collection of works and frequently read it over and over again. Brilliant)
  6. Term Limits by Vince Flynn (Vince Flyn was the first author I embraced reading a different genre. Learning about his characters and story play was a true joy. Also learning from Flynn’s personal struggle to make it as a writer gives me the strength to keep going. He unfortunately died this year and I really really miss him. RIP Vince and thank you so much.)
  7. The Dragon Gates by Weiss and Hickman (If you love fantasy and if you don’t know these books run to the store now, click on amazon, hijack a bus,train or plain and get them now. Such master pieces. I own them in dutch and bought them again in english. Such great story telling and the creation of worlds. Love it Love it Love it)
  8. The Patriot by Brad Thor ( I love the pass in with Brad Thor writes his stories, I was given the Patriot by a real patriot that has since passed away when we were at a disaster site and I loved it, ever since Brad Thor is a staple in my collection and I love his work.)
  9. 1984 by George Orwell (eye opening, well written and what a visionary)
  10. Twighlight Eyes by Dean Koontz (This story kept me reading and reading. I loved the setting of Koontz and His passion for animals makes me love him as a human being)

There you go. My top 10
