A Book By Any Other Name Would Smell As Sweet

Today’s prompt is to talk about a book that I could read over and over again. I can tell you right now, this is going to be a short post.

My favorite book is 1984 by George Orwell. It’s a classic and I just love his take on where society was headed. And with some hindsight, where it is today; being constantly watched and monitored. I absolutely love this book and I could probably read it over and over and over again and never tire of it. It’s what really got me interested in science fiction stories and more specifically, Dystopian futures.

Another book I love and could probably read over and over again (and am reading for the second time), is Genesis by Bernard Beckett. This has a bit of a utopian/dystopian feel and is very futuristic. It also makes you truly think about humanity and it’s relation to itself as well as technology.

I highly recommend both.
So that wasn’t too short.

What’s your favorite book? A book you could read over and over again and never tire of it.

  1. I don’t often re-read books. But the one book I read over and over and never tire of is The Little Prince. It’s simple and quick, but I love that it’s a book for adults that’s disguised as a children’s book. Every time I read it, I get something different from it, finding new meaning in the metaphors.

  2. It’s rare that I find books I can read more than once. And while I did like 1984 it’s not on my list.

    Laurell K. Hamilton’s two series (Merry Gentry and Anita Blake Vampire Hunter)

    Kerrelyn Sparks’ Love at Stake series

    Impulse by Ellen Hopkins (and the sequel, Perfect)

    Forgive Me, Leonard Peacocok by Matthew Quick

    On Writing by Stephen King

    The Good Dog by Avi

    I’d Rather Be Writing by Marcia Golub

    This list has more than tripled in the last 2-3 years.
