schadenfreude: (beginnings)

January 9, 2017 - Share Ten of Your Favorite Books of All Time

  1. The Godfather - Mario Puzo. Read circa 1971 and was my instruction to everything I need to know.
  2. The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty. Read circa 1972 and my introduction to everything I didn't want to know.
  3. Hatter Fox - Marilyn Harris. Read circa 1973 and made me realize that kindness and perseverance, regardless of their intentions, cannot overcome every problem.
  4. Carrie - Stephen King. Read circa 1974. What can I say about this one? Stephen King, telekinesis, and best get-even story in history . . . I could go on and on.
  5. Audrey Rose - Frank De Felitta. Read circa 1975 and it planted the seeds for a forty-year fascination with reincarnation and past lives.
  6. Interview with the Vampire - Anne Rice. Read circa 1976 and I can sum this one up in two words: Anne Rice.
  7. The Stand - Stephen King. Read circa 1978, where I realized that the world could come to a screeching halt by something as simple as a virus, and the aftermath could be as scary as anything I learned in Sunday School.
  8. The Color Purple - Alice Walker. Read circa 1989, I realized that no matter how bad things are, some people have it worse, and contrary to my thoughts about Hatter Fox, kindness and perseverance really can overcome problems.
  9. Holy Blood, Holy Grail - Baigent, Leigh, and Lincoln. Read circa 1990 and introduced me to the bloodline of Christ and the Priory of Sion, long before Dan Brown got into the act.
  10. The Help - Kathryn Stockett. Read circa 2010 and reinforced the fact that some things will never change.
