The book I wish I wrote.
The first book that left me in awe.
The book that made me start writing.
The first book I ever applied literary theory to, and the first book I read more than once.
The first book I fell in love with.
The best fantasy novel I've ever read.
The go-back-to book.
The mentor's book.
The best children's book.
The book that changed my writing life.
The first book that made me cry.
The book that gave me bad dreams.
My favorite book of poetry.
The book every writer must read.
The first book I read in one sitting.
Another book I wish I wrote.
My hands-down favorite book.
The you-have-to-read-it-because-I-can't-explain-it book.
The book that makes all stories make sense.
The I-will-read-this-to-my-kids-one-day book.
