Top Ten Favourite Novels of All-Time

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. This week is a rewind edition which means we can go back and pick any TTT we wish to do. Since I am too lazy to peruse through old topics I decided to make mine up this week. Here are my top ten books of all-time. 

 1. The Harry Potter Series by JK Rowling- I mean this is a no-brainer. If you are a reader and haven't read these books, it's about time you pick them up :)
2. Alias Grace by  Margaret Atwood- This is a true Canadian icon. Margaret Atwood is my fave!

3. Lullabies for Little Criminals by Heather O'Neill- This is a true gem that many have not read. She is coming out with a new novel this year and I can't wait.
4. The Dress Lodger by Sheri Holman- This is another book that many haven't read but it is great historical fiction. 

 5. The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill- This book is a gripping story about slavery. The writing is amazing!
6. Fall on Your Knees by Ann-Marie MacDonald- Another Canadian novel. It's heartbreaking but so well-written.

 7. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn- What a rollercoaster of twists and turns. Pick this up before the movie comes out.
8. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee- This book is classic.

 9. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini- This book is so well written and thought provoking. Set in Afghanistan and follows the lives of two boys into adulthood.
10. The Storyteller by Jodi Picoult- This is Picoult's latest novel and it is unlike anything she has written before. It is about a young woman who meets an old man who confesses to her that he was a Nazi. Did I mention that the young woman is of Jewish descent?

Ok, I couldn't just narrow it down to 10 so here are some honourable menions:

 I'm curious to see what everyone picked as their topics this week.

Happy Reading!


  1. Golden Boy is on my TBR list right now! And--I did really like Gone Girl. That's one that I'll definitely be buying once it comes out in paperback because I know I'll want to read it again! Kite Runner was great as well--a really good book club book.
    Nice list!

  2. The Kite Runner made me cry out of frustration. So sad, and so well written.
    My TTT

  3. Great pick. Harry Potter would be the top of my list too, such a brilliant and wonderful series. Nice list :) My TTT.
