A few of my faves:

 

Tom Sawyer - I feel like I could've been Tom. Would've loved to have lived back then running bare foot in the summer (not to say I didn't anyway. I even had my own Becky Thatcher growing up.

Of Mice and Men - So desolate, so lonely, so sad.

 

 

And I know that I'm gonna totally lose my man card on this one as these are chick books but I like the Anne of Green Gables series. Shoot me.

My favourite books always have and remain to be the Harry Potter books, I love them.

 

I also enjoy all the Narnia books by C.S Lewis, His Dark Materials by Phillip Pullman, I love reading fantasy.

 

I also enjoy a few autobiographies and a few football books, A Season With Verona by Tim Parks and Forza Italia by Paddy Agnew are excellent reads.

I love to read, so it's pretty hard to choose top 5 :/ but here it goes :

 

1. Bringing down the house by Ben Mezrich

2. Alchemist by Paulo Coelho

3. Easy to Kill by Agatha Christie

4. The Shawshank Redemption by Stephen King

5. Angels and demons by Dan Brown

 

ooooooo Shawshank. Good choice. Also one of the best films ever made. And that's not hyperbole.

Besides Harry Potter of course I really like:

  • The Choice by Nicholas Sparks
    Alice in Wonderland
    The Secret Garden
    The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen

 

That's all I can really think of right now, I've been so busy with school these past few years that I've found it difficult to fit in time to read anything other than the required reading material, so I really need to get my butt to the bookstore or library and update my book status.

- Noughts & Crosses series by Malorie Blackman (HIGHLY recommend this series!)

- Wicked by Gregory Maguire

- Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice

- Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

^^I have Wicked, but I STILL have not gotten through more than forty pages. It is really interesting, though...would love to finish it. Would love to see the play on Broadway, and I have played the score for "Wicked" before. Love it!

Wuthering Heights was quite good, but could not bring myself to read the last fifty pages. Perhaps because it was a requirement for my first English Lit class? Lol.

My favorite books:

*Harry Potter is a given. :blush: My favorites from there are Prisoner of Azkaban and Deathly Hallows

1) Jude The Obscure by Thomas Hardy.

2) Cyrano De Bergerac by Edmond Rostand. LOVED this one.

3) The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger (I also loved his short story "Perfect Day for Banana Fish")

4) Farewell to Arms by Ernest Hemingway

5) The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein

 

:) About 3/4 of my furniture is covered in books. I just wish I had enough time to read them...or finish them at least. :rolleyes:

And then I fell for Hush hush by Becca Fitzpatrick. Love ut.

 

I have the ebooks (Hush Hush and Crescendo). Haven't read it,yet... :\ I've read some reviews and the plot sounds similar to Twilight. But now that someone's said its good, I might read it. :)
