Over at Inkwell we've decided to share our favorite books. So here's mine.
1. IT by Stephen King. IT became my favorite because it was the first full length adult book I read and I was instantly drawn into the world of make-believe. IT is the story of a killer clown terrorizing kids. Not a person, but an entity that draws its form from whatever the victim fears. It isn't my favorite solely because of its content, but the impression I kept with me from reading it. It was then that I decided I wanted to write. So thanks Stephen King!
2. Lord of the Rings by Tolkien. The One ring. I'm sure you know what that one is about. I've been writing fantasy since forever but never found a book I liked, until Lord of the Rings. The world building blew me away. I can't say more than that.
I have other books I like but these two stand out more than the rest. What is your favorite book and why?
