It got me thinking, Did they mean my favourite? The one that I can’t stop thinking about years after I’ve finished reading? There were a few possible answers for me.
When I started thinking about it, many titles flashed through – Ralph’s Party by Lisa Jewell, Where Rainbow’s End by Cecelia Ahern, The Velveteen Rabbit, Harry Potter, The Malory Towers and Sweet Valley High books (one’s I read avidly when I was a teenager.) These are the ones I can think of at this moment.
However, the book that keeps coming back to me is The Handmaids Tale by Margaret Atwood. It was recommended to me by my sister. I was sixteen and it made such an impact on me that I still think about it now. I was at an impressional age and many times, this book surprised me, shocked me and made me cry. I can even remember the song I was listening to a lot as I read it almost sixteen years ago.
So, which book made you and why?
