Yesterday I was talking about books with @mollybmom  on Twitter.  She has made a comment that she hadn’t taken me for a fantasy buff.  In the book conversations, I often mention that the particular book being discussed were “definitely part of my top ten ever.”  I said that to Jana during this conversation.  It got me thinking…  If I had to make a definitive list, which books would actually made the cut?  I tried to make a top 10 list, but decided to expand my definition to count series as only one choice in the top ten.  Here is what I came up with, in no particular order.
