“Thus spoke Zarathustra” by Friedrich Nietzsche.
Molokai by alan brennett, it was completely out of my normal reading comfort zone but just hit me emotionally in a way no other book has, its hard to describe the feeling
The Road by Cormac McCarthy
Mines too! Love all his books but this is what started me off?
First fifteen lives of Harry August because it just blew my mind. The Time Travellers Wife because Henry and Claire became real people to me.
One of many.. Ding Ho! The story of Claire Chanault and the AVG (Americans Volunteer Group) in China. Help spark my love for history and for aviation. Not to mention model building.
Tie between Crime and Punishment and War and Peace, the Russian masters are quite something.
TBH I have been meaning to read more by Tolstoy and Dostoevsky but one really needs time to go through them.
@S I have planned Anna karenina In for the end of July or August
@Sean Maybe we could read it together?
S Emaad Uddin I will give you a shout when I get to it , just read les mis , now on the poisonwood bible , I am pilgrim next then probably Anna or the brothers karamzov
good lord you are one scary reader!! much respect
The one man by Andrew Gross ?
Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner. The author tries to travel to different places in the world to know why these places are considered “happier” places. After reading this, you get to appreciate your country. Plus the way it was written, very witty
Going on my TBR list. Thanks for the rec.
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen because when I read Austen I feel like her books were written with me in mind. They speak to me and Pride and Prejudice is my favorite by her.
Hard to name one !!
The Vortex by Abraham Hicks. Changed my life.
Fall On Your Knees by Anne-Marie MacDonald-I still think about the characters in that book and what they went through.
In English literature ,Pygmalion by Bernard Shaw ?
Too many. Can’t just pick one
Les Miserables. I had read many classic novels prior to this one, but reading “Les Mis” in its unabridged form showed me how life-altering and all-absorbing fiction could be. It’s a novel that engages all of your senses and every fiber of your brain. Very few novels have the capacity to do that seamlessly.
The great alone. Its the best book I have ever read
Who do you love ( Jennifer Wiener)
The light we lost
Why ? Because it hit too close to home ?
I really liked how the book thief was written, probably not my favourite book but just the way things were worded was fantastic.
“Turtles all the Way Down” because it made me cry the whole way through. I love John Green books in general, but I could just really relate to Aza. It was funny and quirky and real.
My next book to read. I can’t wait. ???
Wuthering Heights. It’s haunting, heartbreaking, and the greatest book in the English language.
Neverwhere. My first Neil Gaiman. His writing is like no other, in my opinion. He creates a world with his words that draws me in and I don’t want to leave.
The green mile! When they came out in the individual books my mom was able to buy me the first two, she couldn’t Afford the rest at the time. But once the full book came out she bought me that. ?
Cloud atlas by David Mitchell
Favorite book right now would have to be The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. Such a great start to a wonderful series.
My favorite of all time in terms of stand-alones is Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith. There’s a certain magic to it and Meliara is a strong female who really learns a lot and fights to be relatively independent throughout the book while also not being afraid to fall in love. It also features my first book boyfriend, Vidanric. I am in desperate need of a reread.
Harry Potter ❤❤❤❤
Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt and Unloved by Peter Roche. Both heartbreaking, but so touching and so well-written.
Lord of the rings its the first book i read and i was forteen because i could not read untill then i was disleyic
Street Lawyer by Jon Grisham. Such a great book. I’ve read it at least 10 times & will read again.
My favourite book is a little known classic called Angel Pavement by JB Priestly. Its so beautifully written and is set in pre war London
Ernest Hemingway . The old man and the sea. A well told and grabbing story of every day life .
Monk who sold his Ferrari by Robin Sharma
I preferred The Bone Clocks …
3 minutes by Roslund and Hellström. Just wow!
The shadow of the wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafón it is a beautiful written book
It certainly is.
1984..it opend my eyes…
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
I honestly cant pick one favorite. They all have touched me in one way or another
“In A Flicker” ….because I wrote it.
The Witch of Blackbird Pond. As a teen girl, it taught me not to judge people.
I read that book too as a teen. I still have the book.
Outlander series. It’s so special because it gave me an escape. It’s also probably why I grew up anti social?social rather read a book than go out with friends. Seriously though, it took my mind to a place and time I’ve always loved and threw a great story in the mix of it all
Redeeming love by Francine Rivers, changed the way I saw God and men forever, grew up in abusive environment, but this book helped me heal:)❤️
I have more than one I can’t choose they’re all good but have a lot that are my favourites stormy petrol by Mary Stuart that one’s good I liked the description of nature and the Way it has a nice mystery to it as well, Rebecca by Daphine Demoure that’s an excellent mystery very descriptive I love books that are descriptive and have elements of nature and mystery together?
