Not necessarily exactly the same as those I think are best, then - the ones I keep rereading!
Hmmm, books I *love* the most.
1. Lord of the Rings (Hah, bet that surprised everyone!)
2. Harry Potter (if I must choose one, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"). I came to it later in life (it did not exist in my youth, but I fell hard when I did fall in love with it. This was my first online fandom).
3. Alexandre Dumas' Musketeer series (if I must choose one, "The Three Musketeers". When I was a child/teen, this series was an annual reread, at least. And "Three Musketeers" I have read in three languages - my native language, English, and after 6 years of school French, in the original).
4. Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mystery series. (The one I've read the most is "The Mummy Case". Possibly not my favorite, but so much older than a lot of them that I've had more time to reread it a lot!)
5. Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan series of SF novels. Together with HP, these are the two entries I only came across as an adult. If I had to pick one, probably "Komarr" for its depiction of an unhappy marriage.Though that is not the one I would recommend to a new reader of the series, just the one that is most personally appealing to me.
