I really enjoy the Sherlock Holmes books. However, I also enjoy Lord of the Rings, The Phantom Tollbooth, and the Harry Potter series.

Coming of Age in Mississippi and The Broke Diaries. I like coming of age pieces.

I loved this book! Read it for one of my English classes in college.

HARRY POTTER!!!!!<3 But to be honest I just love all fantasy in general, like A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, Lord of the Rings by Tolkien, His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman.... honestly, the list goes on and on. I also love science fiction like the Time Machine as well as a lot of Stephen King books. Then of course you have classics like Catcher in the Rye and to Kill a Mockingbird and Charles Dickens, who is probably one of my favourite non-fantasy writers of all time.

Although I do enjoy reading a good sci-fi to whisk me away to a better, more fantastic life, a good science FACT book really hits home with me. If you find the right book, it's just like reading a sci-fi book, but everything you read is all the more extraordinary because it's REAL. Nothings better than reading about a beautiful, complicated, breath-taking world, and realizing you live in it.

Couldn't agree more. Most of my books are actually popular science books, a few possibly not so 'popular'. The feeling of awe when some seeming impossibility hits home is hard to beat with fiction (I do love fiction too). I love science full stop. My biggest regret in life is that I'm an artist and not a scientist. Give me the glory of a real landscape over a painted one, and a vast murmuration of starlings over anything.

The Princess Bride. It's the perfect amount of wit, comedy and enthralling fantasy.

Right On! One of my favorites!

I hate claiming something is my favorite... I know I'll love something else much more eventually :)

But my favorite book so far is: The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot.

This book has opened up a can of all types of worms for me!

If you can expand your mind you expand your world ;)

I think mine is percy jackson but i also love harry potter, the perks of being a wallflower, grijze jager( i don't know how it's called in english), the fault in our stars, the notebook and much more :))

Guest Towel (not verified) says...

I believe Grizje Jager is The Ranger's Apprentice. Does that sound right to you?

Guest (not verified) says...

A Room with a View by E.M. Forster

Till We Have Faces by CS Lewis

As a child, two books stood out for me because they reflected how well my mother had me pegged, even as a wee person.
The first was The Princess and the Pea. Now there has been much discussion as to what the moral of that tale was. I am in the camp that believes the Queen tested potential mates for her son to see how sensitive the young woman was, for this was a quality she highly valued. To her credit, neither did she judge on appearance. Many INFPs possess a highly sensitive temperament.

The other book I loved was 'The Adventure of Silly Billy', from the Golden Books series. The story was about Billy who often had nutty ideas,like planting corn seeds, and with the sunshine to warm them, surely popcorn would grow! Hence his nick-name, even though his ideas were not without some validity. He goes on to solve small problems that confound the folks of his village. And he does so with creative solutions. Whereupon he becomes known as 'Wise William'! He clearly was an INFP!

Not my favorite book, but perhaps one of my most life-changing books was The Scarlet Petal and the White. As an INFJ/INFP, it really helped me to embrace humanity in all its flaws.

Trinity by Leon Uris, at the time I read it I was very interested in my ancestry.

nabeeha22 says...

HARRY POTTER! I love how the series has the capability of dissolving and completely shutting out the world around you.

My Name is Asher Lev is an excellent book by Chaim Potok. This book was recommended to me by my high school art teacher! This book is about a Jewish boy who expresses his thoughts through his works of art.

Bard says...

Many years ago a friend recommended Chaim Potok's books to me. They didn't end up being lifelong favorites, but I remember his novels being consistently excellent--both entertaining and inspiring.

I can't choose ONE and these are in no particular order.

Atlas Shrugged
Sword of Truth (series)
Jane Eyre
Pride and Prejudice
A Little Princess
Where The Red Fern Grows
Caddie Woodlawn
Johnny Tremain
The Golden Compass

these are books I'll read over and over again, and oh boy are there so many more to choose from.

brownlc says...

Just one?! LOL.....but, I have enjoyed these: The Secret Life of Bees; a lot of works by John Steinbeck; I Heard the Owl Call My Name; Dances With Wolves; Cold Sassy Tree; The Snow Falcon; Snow Falling On Cedars; The Blind Assassin; many works by Kate Chopin; poetry of Robert Frost; poetry of Langston Hughes.

Bard says...

"Just one?!" was my reaction too. I wonder if that's an INFP trait, finding it difficult to choose one favorite. :-) I don't know all the books you've mentioned, but certainly would include Frost and Hughes in my favorites.

Guest (not verified) says...

Really hard to choose one (right, typical for INFPs ;P), but I'd go with Harry Potter series, Jane Austen's books (especially Pride and Prejudice), books from Song of Ice and Fire, all Dan Brown's books (but I think that Digital Fortress is my favourite), Jack Higgins's books (can't choose one) and many others.

INFPoet (not verified) says...

The Lord of the Rings - a master tale! - and Johnny Tremain - I think he was an INFP too.

marrymargaret12 says...
