What’s Your Favourite?

Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights have both made the cut of 20 favourite books in this Canturbury New Zealand contest. Voting is now staring on which book will come out as the favourite of the 20. The contestants are as follows in no particular order:

The Time Traveler’s Wife, Angela’s Ashes, The Power of One, Wuthering Heights, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince, Pride and Prejudice, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, The Bible, The Bronze Horseman, Pillars of the Earth, Cross Stitch, Jane Eyre, The Da Vinci Code, The Goat Hunter, To Kill a Mocking Bird and The Hobbit.

Canterbury’s favourite book will be announced on Saturday, 9 September during The Press Christchurch Writers’ Festival 2006 and will be posted on the website.



  1. I’m astonished at some of the books that have been chosen. I suppose it is a ‘favourites’ list after all and not a literary one.

    So which one is it for Bronteana; Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights?

  2. It is a strange list! And so many books that are currently all the rage. I don’t think the Bible really is the same thing as Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings, either!

    Actually, I was thinking of voting for Pride and Prejudice 😉 I’d go to JE. My all-time favourite book on any list.
