10 of my Favourite Books

This will have to be one of the toughest lists I will make. I feel bad for leaving any books out but I will admit there are some I just become disappointed in after finishing. I also never leave a book unfinished, even if I cannot stand it half way through. On with the list.

  1. Fried Green Tomatoes by Fannie Flagg – So many feelings are had when reading this book.
  2. Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens – I actually have a hard copy of this book. To be fair this book takes commitment to read so it does not happen all that often.
  3. Call of the Wild by Jack London
  4. The Help by Kathryn Stockett – I just really enjoy this book
  5. Catcher and in Rye by J. D. Salinger
  6. Dream Catcher by Stephen King – This book terrified me ha-ha
  7. The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien – I read this book in 7th grade (borrowed it from my step-father) and I just immediately fell in love with it.
  8. Animal Farm by George Orwell – We read this in school but I have read it many times since than.
  9. Charlotte’s Web by EB White
  10. The Tragedy of Pudd’nhead Wilson – Mark Twain

This list was even harder to write than the movie list. There are just so many out there. Again, I head trouble keeping to the recent but the classics are just that, classics. I made sure not to repeat any authors and picked my absolute out of the handful of books I love from some of them. Till tough narrowing it down to ten though.

10 of My Favourite Movies

I am not sure why I want to use the number 10 when 5 would be so much easier but I just like that number. With anything else I have a wide area of interests or genres in this case. My go to genres are horror, psychological thrillers and classic anything.

  1. How to Marry a Millionaire (1953) – starring Betty Grable and Marilyn Monroe.
  2. Blazing Saddles (1974) – starring Gene Wilder and Cleavon Little. Mel Brooks does show up but he is the director and has some writing credit I believe.
  3. The Silence of the Lambs (1991) – starring Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins, and Ted Lavine.
  4. House of 1000 Corpses (2003)/Devils Rejects (2005) – starring Sid Haig, Sherri Moon Zombie, and Bill Moseley. Ken Foreen starred in Devils Rejects. These are both Rob Zombie movies and I its been a while but I remember him making a short appearance in House of 1000 Corpses.
  5. Goodnight, Mister Tom (1998) – I honestly cannot remember any of the actors who starred in this movie (possibly TV Movie) but I remember crying my heart out.
  6. The Warriors (1979) – Michael Beck is the only actor I can remember and I just watched this a few weeks ago. Classic movie though.
  7. The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) – There are just so many people in this movie such as Meatloaf. Even if musicals are not your thing you need to watch this simply because of Tim Curry. This movie simply just makes me happy.
  8. Little Shop of Horrors (1986) – starring Rick Moranis, Vincent Gardenia, Ellen Greene, and many more. I also recently learnt there is an original 1960 The Little Shop of Horrors. I have to find this so I can watch it.
  9. Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) – I cannot remember any of the actors as it has been forever since I watched it. I really need to buy this movie again.
  10. The Green Mile (1999) – starring Tom Hanks and David Morse.

Technically I listed 11 but the one was a sequel so I don’t think it should count on its own. There are a lot of movies that did not make it on the list. I was also hoping to have newer movies on here but that did not happen. I might do another one of these in the future but stick to a certain decade.
