I saw this over at Shelley’s, and thought it sounded like a great question for all of you:

“This can be a quick one. Don’t take too long to think about it. Fifteen books you’ve read that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than 15 minutes.”

Isn't this week's question fun? So here we go, fifteen books that will always stick with me (and doing no more than 15 minutes):

  • My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
  • Tokyo (aka The Devil of Nanking) by Mo Hayder
  • In the Woods by Tana French
  • The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
  • Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
  • The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
  • Out by Natsuo Kirino
  • Atonement by Ian McEwan
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
  • Twilight by Stephenie Meyer
  • Black Ice by Anne Stuart
  • The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory
  • The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale
  • The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
  • The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

So which fifteen books that will always stick with you? Don't forget, you have only 15 minutes to do so.

    I have only read P&P from your list! I love BTT, I always get great ideas for what to read next from other posters.


  2. The Graveyard Book is on my TBR list!

    Stuck forever and ever!


  3. BooksPlease Says:

    I nearly chose The Handmaid's Tale as well.


  4. Dot Says:

    I still haven't got round to reading The Graveyard book but I really want to! Thanks for visitn my blog and I hope you enjoy Jane Eyre!


  5. Julia Says:

    I'm planning to read My Sister's Keeper soon. Just depend on the matter of being busy or mood reading :)

    I know you and I already read "Black Ice" together but all the others I either read it or not. Or seen movies version of it.

    Happy BTTs!


  6. Novroz Says:

    My sister's keeper is also on my list :)

    Kite Runner should have been in mine too...but I have forgotten about it


  7. Sandy Nawrot Says:

    You and I have very similar tastes! I haven't done this one yet, but it is fun.


  8. violetcrush Says:

    Damn...how could I forget My sister's keeper, it's one of my favorite books. Great list Melody, I somehow knew The Hunger Games would be in it.


  9. Debi Says:

    Oh, that is a fun question! And I loved reading your list. I've only read a few of those, but several of them are on my "want to read really badly" list. In fact, Annie and I are going to be starting The Kite Runner next week for school, and I'm really looking to it!


  10. JoAnn Says:

    My Sister's Keeper was one of my favorite audiobooks ever!


  11. Beth F Says:

    Good list. Thirteenth Tale and Handmaid's Tale may have made it my list too.


  12. Lady Lazarus Says:

    Ooh, I like your list. Think The Other Boleyn Girl'll be on mine too because that introduced me to Philippa Gregory (before the film came out ;) ).


  13. Jacqueline C Says:

    Love The Kite Runner. Here's mine.


  14. 3m Says:

    I had The Handmaid's Tale as well. This was a fun BTT!


  15. mattviews Says:

    The thought of Handmaid's Tale is very haunting. Should I get my hand on The Kite Runner, since it's on almost everyone's list?

    My full list.


  16. Nymeth Says:

    I'm totally with you on the last three! And it sounds like I should get to the others :P


  17. JessicaLeigh Says:

    Wonderful books! I share a few with you. :)


  18. Crystal Says:

    I have only read P&P and Twilight from your list - but there are a bunch on it that I want to read.


  19. I just wanted to thank you for recommending Out. I have just finished reading it, and it was the best thriller I have ever read.

    I am going to be paying much more attention to your recommendations from now on.


  20. Frances Says:

    We have no overlap but loved The Graveyard Book and The Thirteenth Tale. Happy reading!


  21. Ladybug Says:

    I loved The Kite Runner, Twilight & The Hunger Games!

    P&P and Atonement is lying in my TBR pile and three of the other books you've mentioned is already on my wish list :)

    Enjoy your weekend :)


  22. Iliana Says:

    This is such a great meme and I can't believe I missed out on it. Well, maybe I'll still play later this weekend :)

    The Handmaid's Tale is one I'd definitely put on my list too. You've got some others on here that are also favorites though.


  23. Great list. I have The Thirteenth Tale on my list too. My post is up now.

  28. Trish Says:

    Handmaid's Tale, Atonement, and The Thirteenth Tale would probably all go on my list. Maybe My Sister's Keeper nad The Kite Runner (preferred A Thousand Splendid Suns). Man, I wish I had done this list--looks like fun!

    I REALLY want to read Hunger Games!
