"Mists of Avalon" by Marion Zimmer Bradley.


It is a 1983 novel by Marion Zimmer Bradley, in which she relates the Arthurian legends from the perspective of the female characters. The book follows the trajectory of Morgaine (often called Morgan le Fay in other works), a priestess fighting to save her matriarchal Celtic culture in a country where patriarchal Christianity threatens to destroy the pagan way of life. In stark contrast to most other retellings of the Arthurian tales, which consistently cast Morgan le Fay as a distant, one-dimensional evil sorceress, with little or no explanation given for her antagonism to the Round Table, Morgaine is presented as a woman with unique gifts and responsibilities at a time of enormous political and spiritual upheaval who is called upon to defend her indigenous matriarchal heritage against impossible odds.


There was also a TV miniseries made:

I'd have to say it's a tie between Memoirs of a Geisha and the Call of Cthulhu. :)

My favorite book(s) are the Chronicles of Narnia collection, specifically The Horse and His Boy.
I just think they're really well written and I like the themes that the book explores.

It's not often The Horse and His Boy is chosen as a fave, it's very different to the rest.
Still a great read though, but my fave out of the series lies with The Magicians Nephew, I thought it was hugely entertaining.

My favorite book is one I read in high school called The Lathe of Heaven. It's about a man whose dreams alter reality and a doctor who tries to use the man to shape the world into what he wants it to be. It's a really neat book and pretty creepy at times. I need to track it down so I can read it again. The movie adaptation of it (at least the one I saw) is terrible. It changed way too much.

My favorite two books are Eon by Alison Goodman and Heir to Sevenwaters (Sevenwaters #4) by Juliet Marillier.

I really love them to death *^*

One of them would have to be The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie.
