Books that touched me

Here goes:

Wolves of Willoughby Chase -- Joan Aiken
Persian Boy, Fire from Heaven -- Mary Renault
Wings from the Wind (Poetry Collection)
Dark is Rising Series-- Susan Cooper
Once and Future King TH White
Collected Works of Thurber
Hornblower Series
Les Miserables-- Victor Hugo
Moby Dick-- Herman Meliville
Poems of Kipling

My goodness, they are all fiction. That is kind of a surprise, I read a lot of non-fiction too. But the ones that settled in my heart, the ones that I hugged to my chest, the ones I never wanted to end,  those seem to be the ones that were that were 'stories.'  Funny about that...

Lots of books there I have always meant to read, but have never quite got round to. I must rectify that :) I nearly put The Dark Is Rising on my list. I was enthralled by that series as a kid. I read it again a few years ago and was entranced by it all over again. Particularly The Dark Is Rising itself. That is one powerful book. Particularly at this time of year.
