We all have them, those books we love so much that we could read them over and over again. They are the stories that touch us the most, that take over our dreams and our realities even when we read them. They are our favorites.
I've been too impulsive in the past to declare a book a favorite, so now my favorites need to pass my re-read test. In other words: if I still love a book the second time around, then it's a favorite.

The books that I have listed below, are books that have passed my requirements within the past few years. They are organized by 5 different genres. Click on any of these shelves to see what I listed as my favorites.
Possible Book Favorites
These are books I've only read once, some recently, others long ago. They gave excellent first impressions, and I loved them when I read them, but now that the initial "Wow!" factor has worn off, they need to pass the re-read test and wow me again. Only then will they make it to the elite.
