Favorite Books, From A-Z (Almost)

Welcome to Monthly Monday! 500 Books is supposed to be a fun side project for me, so while I toyed with the idea of doing a weekly Tuesday post to go with my Thursday reviews, I decided that I'll do one extra post each month. To give you a little better idea of who I am as a reader, I thought I'd go through from A to Z, and highlight one of my favorite books starting with each letter!

(A)ngus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging
(D)escendants, The
(F)ellowship of the Rings, The
(G)olden Compass, The
(H)ot Zone, The
(I)s Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?
(J)itterbug Perfume
(K)ite Runner, The

(M)an Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, The
(N)ever Let Me Go
(O)ther Boleyn Girl, The
(P)icture of Dorian Gray, The
(R)ed Tent, The
(S)ecret History, The

(T)hree and Out
(U)nder The Banner of Heaven
(V)irgin Suicides, The
(W)hite Oleander

I did actually have a book I've read for every letter except X, but not ones that I would consider "favorites" per se. I wanted to touch on lots of different genres (young adult, sports, psychology, historical fiction, classics, contemporary fiction...) and not repeat authors, so these aren't necessarily my absolute favorites, but they're all books I love and have re-read.

Tell me, blog friends...have you read any of these books? What did you think of them? What are your favorite books?
