I have really healthy favorite books

Potter:

According to Rowling, a major theme in the series is death: “My books are largely about death. They open with the death of Harry’s parents. There is Voldemort’s obsession with conquering death and his quest for immortality at any price, the goal of anyone with magic. I so understand why Voldemort wants to conquer death. We’re all frightened of it.” (wiki)

Rings:

“But I should say, if asked, the tale is not really about Power and Dominion: that only sets the wheels going; it is about Death and the desire for deathlessness.” (Letters, l. 203)

(Though, to be exact and not give the wrong picture, I’d say I’d have to read the Potter books over once more — that’d be the third or fourth time for some, second for one — before really calling them favorite — or, erm, did I give away too much to deny anything already?)
