Top Ten Tuesday 3/3/15 has a list. Today's prompt is Top Ten Books You Would Classify As ALL TIME FAVORITE BOOKS from the past 3 years

So, past 3 years. Hmm. To the Goodreads account!

Okay, first things first:

Pride and Prejudice

Sense and Sensibility

Because who didn't know those would be on the list.

And then two more books I re-read a bunch:

Pleasures of Reading

So Many Books

And then, in no particular order:

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair

Tolstoy and the Purple Chair by Nina Sankovitch is about a woman who rearranged her life in order to read a book a day for a year. The purpose was to use bibliotherapy to help her get over the death of her sister with whom she discussed books on a regular basis.


Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking by Susan Cain. The title pretty much sums it up.

The Novel Cure

The Novel Cure by Ella Berthoud - I had a great time with this book. Pick a disorder or malaise or disposition and this book has a suggestion for a novel to help you out.

All Roads Lead to Austen

All Roads Lead to Austen by Amy Elizabeth Smith is a book about a professor who goes to South America for a year to lead book discussions about Jane Austen books in various countries. It's just so fun to read about how Jane Austen translates to different cultures.

The Night Circus

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is about two magicians pitted against each other in a contest of magic that can only end in one of their deaths. Then they fall in love.

A Tale for the Time Being

A Tale For The Time Being by Ruth Ozeki is the first book I read this year, and it was amazing. Very Japanese in tone and the way the story went all magical realism and then delved into string theory. Very entertaining.

So there are my Top Ten favorites from the last 3 years. Got any on your list?
