Literally anything Ella Summers has written

Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman
The fever series by Karen Marie Moning . I have read them all numerous times
For the Roses by Julie Garwood
Rebecca by Daphne Du’Maurier
All the light we cannot see by Anthony Doerr. It’s beautifully written
Loved this one
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
The Alchemist – Paul Coelho
Pilgrim at Tinker Creek by Annie Dillard
The Barbed Coil by JV Jones. Most people have never heard of it but it transforms the notions of fantasy. ^-^
How does it transform the notions of fantasy?
The type of magic is very unique and how it is carried out. And both the good and evil character motivations are addressed in a compelling way. I don’t want to say too much in case someone wants to read it, but it is my favourite book. It’s not new which is why a lot of people haven’t heard of it, and I don’t know what to compare it to. 🙂
Snow in August
Winter Warriors David Gemmel

Girl wash my face
A bend in the road. By Nicholas Sparks
“Crucial Conversations.” Everyone can benefit from these skills and they would make the world a better place. I wish they would come out with a version aimed at teenagers.
“Moral Politics” by George Lakoff is also pretty good for understanding how the human mind works. I found his explanation of the different kinds of fairness very helpful, and his detailed explanation of how the metaphor of moral accounting works.
As much as I love fiction, there is no work of fiction that *everyone* will enjoy. Just because I enjoy something doesn’t mean anyone else will. “Wyrd Sisters” by Terry Pratchett is one of my favorites, but unless you love Fantasy, Shakespeare, and humor you might not enjoy it.
On my top ten list too!
Half the Sky
The Brothers Karamazov
At least half the books in my library. lol
The Time Traveler’s Wife
Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
The color purple.
Right now I’m really loving the Vicious Circuit by Robert Brockway. I think I’m bold enough to call the Empty Ones my favorite, but I don’t think it’s for everyone.
The Hunger Games trilogy and Anne of Green Gables.
I’ve been reading a bunch of books since winter last year after taking a long break from reading and my favorite has been Dark Matter. I loved A Man Called Ove and would recommend it to anyone.
A tale of two cities
It was the best of books, it was the worst of books.
There are two books I really loved and recommend. The Alchemist and The Monster Calls. I teared up at The Monster Calls ending and it was such a bittersweet too beautiful of a journey. And right now I am reading ‘The boy in the striped pyjamas’. Many people said that I might need some tissues as I reach the end of the book. I can’t wait to see how much of that is true. ?
You will for sure need tissues. Lots of them.
Oh man. The more I hear this, the more I dread finishing this book. ?
@Manasa finish it. It’s really good. I swear.
I am. Just 50 more pages to go ?
It’s an amazing book.
Loved The Boy In The Striped Pajamas
Beneath the Scarlett Sky!
Read the Alchemist but wasn’t drawn into as others did, I suspect.
The Broken Empire by Mark Lawrence!
Patrick Rothfuss – Kingkiller Chronicles. Book three of the trilogy isn’t out yet! so it’s a good time to start ???
I just finished the first one! Now I’m tackling the 1100 page second book! ??????
Crime and Punishment
The Weirdstone of Brisingamen.
I read Wuthering Heights and loved it!
Bleak House is now my next Dickens choice
Omg so many but my two faves are ringu by koji suzuki and jurssaic park by michael crington(hooe i spelt his name right
