    Anne of Green Gables–Montgomery (children)
    The Wee Free Men–Pratchett (fantasy ya-ish)
    Pride and Prejudice–Austen (romance/novel of manners)
    Ride the River -L’Amour (western)
    Lord of the Rings (allegory/fantasy)

    Cheated on the last one . . . : )
    I love so many books . . . had a hard time at the end not wanting to keep going, still Narnia and Emily of New Moon, and so much more.
    My indecisive nature is writhing.
