The Black Stallion. Another classic children's story, I loved this and dreamed of this horse when I was young.
"The Black Stallion" by Walter Farley - I so wanted to be Alec living on the island with The Black. That was my favourite part of the book. Read a lot of the books in the series and loved them all.
My question is...why hasn't this series ever been sold as a boxed collection? I just discovered the series was continued by the author's son or sons. My favorite books when I was a girl.
The Black Stallion - read all the Walter Farley books in 4th grade.

So when she hears that his ship has been captured by the Dread Pirate Roberts her heart is broken. But her charms draw the attention of the relentless Prince Humperdinck who wants a wife and will go to any lengths to have Buttercup. So starts a fairytale like no other, of true love, revenge, giants, beautifulest ladies, beasts, passion and miracles.

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver (@NoretteF)
Book Club, Books Worth Reading, High School, Reading List, Amazing Book, Brilliant Book, Favorite Book, Reading Books, Favourite Books
Eva never really wanted to be a mother; certainly not the mother of the unlovable boy who murdered seven of his fellow high school students,...but why is he that way? Was he born evil, or was his upbringing to blame? A book which inspires fierce debate on 'nature vs nurture'
We Need To Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver. One of my absolute favourite books. Happily, the film is rather good too.
Disturbing! I couldn't put it down once I started but my is it depressing! This would be excellent for a book club as there is so much to discuss and compare as to why Kevin is the way he is.
I found this very affecting. It really made me think and I wish I was in a book club so I could make everyone talk about it.
brilliant book the best book i have ever read, i loved the film too

So harrowing. But an amazing book. Nature/nurture?

Cider House Rules by John Irving (@mchasewalker)
Worth Reading, Reading List, Irving Book, Cloud, John Irving, Favorite Books, Favorite Author, Favourite Books, Time Favorite
The Cider House Rules by John Irving (24h11m) #Audible #FirstLine: "In the hospital of the orphanage--the boys' division at St. Cloud's, Maine--two nurses were in charge of naming the new babies and checking that their little penises were healing from the obligatory circumcision."
Cider house rules / John Irving / Set in rural Maine in the first half of this century, it tells the story of Dr. Wilbur Larch--saint and obstetrician, founder and director of the orphanage in the town of St. Cloud's, ether addict and abortionist. It is also the story of Dr. Larch's favorite orphan, Homer Wells, who is never adopted.
Finished my first stop on the John Irving reunion tour (via the wonderful audiobook narrator). It was as I remembered: slightly contrived, slightly over the top, very heavy handed on abortion politics--but classic, all-absorbing storytelling. Homer Wells may be a bit of a cypher, but I'm glad I went down this road one more time with the unforgettable Wilbur Larch and all the orphans at St. Clouds.
The Cider House Rules - John Irving was probably my favorite author in my teen years
Cider House Rules; one of my all time favorite books and movie

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton (@BBD_Suspense)
Books Movies, The Outsiders, High School, Young Adult, Books I Ve, Books Books, Favorite Books, Time Favorite, Stay Gold
The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton is definitely one of the best classic novels read in high schools. Although the novel is based on two gangs of boys, “greasers” and the “Socs” it is a great read for both male and female audiences, as it is relatable to the young adult audience and holds strong messages in the themes such as, friendship, love, and loss. (Francesca)
"The Outsiders" by S.E. Hinton was one of my all time favorites..."Stay gold, Pony Boy." Loved that quote. Great movie, too. S.E. Hinton was 16 when SHE wrote this book.
The Outsiders - I remember reading this in school then watching the movie. One of my favorite books, ever...Stay gold.
The Outsiders. In junior high school I read this book a million times, almost had it memorized I liked it so well. It's still one of my top favorite books.
The Outsiders. One of my all time favorite books as a young girl. I cried when I finished reading it because it was over.
(*One of my all time favorite books. I was about 13 or 14 when I first read this book and I could swear that the author followed me around my whole life and wrote down everything I'd ever felt. It made a powerful impact on me. I related to so many of the characters, I felt they were my friends.Stay gold,Ponyboy,stay gold._LL)

Sarah's Key #sarahskey A great WWII book from the point of view of a jewish child living in France, and a present day journalist researching WWII.
Sarah's Key. My most favorite book. Everyone should read it. Very exciting, educational, suspenseful, and unpredictable
Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay - This is one of my favorite books so far. It was incredibly sad to read but really good too. It's one of those books that sticks with you.
My favorite book of all time: Sarah's Key. About a girl's unforgettable journey during the Holocaust
Such an amazing book. Sarahs Key - She closed the door on the little white face, turned the key in the lock. Then she slipped the key into her pocket. The lock was hidden by a pivoting device shaped like a light switch. It was impossible to see the outline of the cupboard in the paneling of the wall. Yes, he’d be safe there. She was sure of it. The girl murmured his name and laid her palm flat on the wooden panel. “I’ll come back for you later. I promise.” -From Sarah’s Key, page 9-
Sarah's Key: A Novel Book club August 2012 Read it if you haven't yet!

To Kill a Mockingbird: Harper Lee - One of my all time favorite books of al time. A BEAUTIFUL piece of literature, with a serious life lessons I still carry around.
To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books I had to read it in high school and totally loved it I have read it about 4 times. It is one of my favorites because it teaches you about life and to no judge others based on how they look. The movie is also one of my favorite movies!

Writing in the Guardian, Diana Wynne Jones stated "I don't think I've ever read anything that conveys so well the joys, terrors and pitfalls of reading". The protagonists have the ability to breath life into words and have the characters within the stories come into 'our world', as well as the power to read themselves in their stories. http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/inkheart-cornelia-funke/1100580276?ean=9780439709101

Bridge to Tarabithia by Katherine Paterson (@OpheliaRG)
Favorite Childhood, Books Movies, Katherine Paterson, Elementary School, Childhood Book, 5Th Grade, Children S Books, Favorite Books, Time Favorite
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson - was the No. 28 most banned and challenged title 2000-2009 The book was banned for profanity and it's use of "Oh Lord." it is about two introverted children who create a magical forest. I would read this with my older students if I was teaching 5th grade perhaps and have them write a journal for each couple chapters and go in depth of the main characters.
"Bridge to Terabithia" by Katherine Paterson, heart breaker- still one of the best children's books of all-time. [My favorite-est book I have ever read. So my mom taught third grade at my school. I was in her class. She read us this book and from that day on it has been my most favorite book I've ever read. BTW: I loved Josh Hutcherson before he was Peeta. I had a secret crush on Jesse (Jess) when I was younger... :)]
Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson | 15 Classic Children’s Books That Have Been Banned In America When: 1996 Why: The book was banned from several classrooms in Pennsylvania on accounts of “profanity, disrespect for adults, and an elaborate fantasy world that might lead to confusion.” The book has also been banned by other schools for its use of the phrases “Oh Lord” and “Lord.” I was read this book in school by my 5th grade teacher.

Books Worth Reading, Books Books, Favorite Books, Rings Trilogy, Absolute Favorite, Lord Of The Rings, Time Favorite
The Lord of the Rings is an epic high-fantasy novel written by English author J. R. R. Tolkien. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien’s 1937 fantasy novel The Hobbit, but eventually developed into a much larger work. Written in stages between 1937 and 1949, The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-selling novels ever written, with over 150 million copies sold.Get it on Amazon
The Lord of the Rings - do you remember where you were when you read the Lord of the Rings trilogy? I remember coming across these books in the Salina Public Library in the 70's......I didn't know anyone who had even heard of them at that time. I had practically forgotten the story by the time the movies were made!
The Lord of the Rings trilogy. These books are quite the undertaking to read, but they are works of fictional genius on an epic scale. The incredible detail and imagination of Tolkien is simply mind-blowing. Everyone should read this series at least once. He is a master of language and symbolism.

Les Miserables, by Victor Hugo (@AlliedSchools)
Classic Book, Les Miserables, The Wretched, Victor Hugo, Reading List, Favorite Book, Time Favorite
Les Misérables, Victor Hugo. One of my favorite books, it's extremely character-driven. There are no perfectly good or perfectly evil characters; I found myself sympathetic even to the most despicable characters (except maybe the Thenardiers.)
Les Miserables Victor Hugo - One of the most widely read novels of all time, Les Misérables was the crowning literary achievement of Victor Hugo’s stunning career. A monumental classic dedicated to the oppressed, the underdog, the laborer, the rebel, the orphan, and the misunderstood, Les Misérables is a rich, emotional novel that captures nothing less than the entirety of life in nineteenth-century France.
Les Miserables, Victor Hugo I cried during this one... yes. I'll admit it. Some books make me cry.
