Out of all of your favorite books, pick just one you'd recommend everyone read. As a bonus: why did you pick that one?

  • There really are too many books that I'd recommend. If I had to pick just one then maybe I would recommend The Hobbit. It is much easier to read than he Lord of the Rings and I really enjoyed it though I haven't read it in a while. I should probably buy it lol x
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest - I am reading it for the first time right now. I am disappointed with my secondary education because I did not read many pieces of literature that should be common education. I think this is one of the most entertaining books with a unique plot, characters, style, etc., and I wish I read this 15 years ago. It is a good thought-provoking book that has a good pace and balance.
  • Probably The Butterfly And The Diving Bell, because it's written by a paralyzed French guy that could only communicate by blinking his eyes. He apparently thought it was important enough to blink out sentence by agonizing sentence. He had to think for hours about every sentence before he wrote them, which is something very few other novelists have done. The content is mundane, but it speaks volumes about what was important to him, and what is important to someone stuck in a bed for months on end.
  • Hmmm... a book recc... I think I would reccomend The Foresaken by L.A. Banks... the only problem is that it is part of a series.

    I would pick that one because it is a super sweet series, and it adds in so many religions, beliefs, superstitions, vampires/demons, and L.A. Banks is just a super awesome writer.

  • From Anna by Jean Little. Not only is the book amazing, but the author is blind and a true inspiration!
  • Let The Right One In.
    because it really is fucking amazing.
  • Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman. Those books are so amazing. They're so emotional and realistic. They're in league with Twilight but they're better because  they're more realistic!!!
  • "Path of the Fury" by David Weber.  It has Sci-Fi, Fantasy and really good characters all in one book, and Weber is one hell of a writer.

  • Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, reading it for the fourth time thus far.  It is amazing, a breath-taking ending, ubiquitous twists and turns and amazing action and controversy!  I AM IN LOVE WITH IT.
