Okay, just browsing the other participants' lists is wonderful and I keep arranging my list of 5, but I think I should finally get done. So here it as :-)
Meg Cabot: The Princess Diaries This book is for the child in me. I enjoy being like that from time to time. It makes life a bit easier, more fun, more enjoyable...
Charlotte Bronte: Jane Eyre Because IMO Jane has good values.
Rabbi Hayim Halevi Donin: To Be A Jew I picked this book up more by chance than anything else (besides recommendation). I think it explains many "Jewish aspects" quite well, even for those who don't know much about it yet. To me, it's a pick up and enjoy kind of book.
Sophie Kinsella: Can You Keep A Secret? This book in a way represents me, cause the main character is just as clumsy and awkward as I am.
J.K. Rowling: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Because I hope I also have friends who in the end believe in me and help me, though they might have doubted at first.
So, that would be my list of five... Now I suppose I'm off to pick my books to read, right?
