Caterpillar's Favorite Books

These are Caterpillar's favorite books. Caterpillar adores these books. These are her top ten books:

1. The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien

Caterpillar loves this book because it has dragons, dwarves, gaint spiders, elves, hobbits, orcs, wargs, and awesome characters!

2. The Two Towers, by J. R. R. Tolkien

This book is the ultimate epic! It has the one Ring, that holds the spirit of Sauron, the dark lord, who is bent upon controlling Middle Earth... And Frodo, the hobbit, must destroy it.

3. The House of the Scorpion, by Nancy Farmer
The book is science-fiction about a future world. It is about the clone of a drug-lord, who struggles to deciede whether or not he's human.

4. Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins

This book is totally extreme! It is the conclusion to the Hunger Games Trilogy. Mockingjay is incredibly thrilling and suspenseful.

5. Farenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

This book is set in a futuristic world where books are burned.... it is about the Fireman, Guy Montag, who is suposed to burn books, until he reads one himself.

6. The Silmirilian, by J. R. R. Tolkien
The Silmirilian is the history of Middle Earrth. It is one of the prequels to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. Caterpillar likes it because it tells of the elves, who are her favorite characters, and their adventures.

7. Three Bags Full, by Leonie Swann

Three Bags Full is the story of the murder of a shepherd, and his flock of sheep must solve it. The flock of sheep has many interesting characters, including the black ram Othello, who has a mysterious past, and Miss Maple, a sheep genuis.

8. Milkweed, by Jerry Spinelli

Milkweed is the story of a boy who is a thief of food, who finds a hole in the wall of the concentration camp, where he is being unfairly held...

9. And Then There Were None, by Agatha Christie

And Then There Were None is a thriller about ten possible murderers stranded on an island, and one by one they are found dead...

Caterpillar says that this is a very creepy book.  Caterpillar liked the way it was based on a nursery rhyme and kept getting gorier.

10. Brisinger, by Christopher Paolini

Brisinger is the story of a person named Eragon and his dragon named Saphira and thier struggle to destroy the tyrannical emporer Galbatorix. Caterpillar's favorite characters are the were-cats.

These books are mostly science fiction, fantasy, and murder mysteries! Caterpillar says if these books did not exist Caterpillar would be very sad and unhappy. If you are curious, Caterpillar has always talked in third person ever since Caterpillar was a larvea.


  1. Wow, you have a very diverse group of favorite books! Does Caterpillar choose most of her books through recommendations, or the library, or...? How did most of these books end up in her hands? :)
