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

Even Angels cry,
If you don't believe my words just look up at the sky,
Do you really think it's rain?
It's nothing more than heaven's pain,
Even Angels cry . . .

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.

So even if the world falls down today, you've still got me to hold you up, and I will never let you down.

- 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:

A BIG thanks to the beautiful BoMa, my big sister <3. I know I haven't been around much to talk, but you're more than amazing and I'm so happy to receive this graphic as a gift. Thanks for being so kind-hearted. ;)

Quotes Which Resonate with Me:
"There is no success without determination" -K.S., #24. RIP <3, 2009.
"I don't need any of you to approve of my decisions, I need ya'll to respect them" -Sandra Bullock in 'The Blind Side'.
"People are always blaming their circumstances for what they are. I don't believe in circumstance. The people who get on in the world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them." -George Bernard Shaw, Irish playwright.

There's so many! But to name a few The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, there's The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova, Pop Co by Scarlet Thomas, naturally the Lord of the Rings and um... Star of the Sea by Joseph O'Connor.

And many many more! I <3 books, fanatically.
