what are your FAVOURITE books?

Postby Axon » Wed Nov 19, 2014 1:39 pm

I've only really got back into reading a lot in the few months and haven't read loads. A few years ago I might've said something by Terry Pratchett? I dunno l0l

but now I'd say Infinite Jest/The Stranger are my current favez but I have been reading a lot lately so that list is soon to be added to!!!

The Skullduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy, in particular The Faceless Ones.

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller. It's so discombobulated due to it being the farthest thing from chronological order, but it's very well written and actually humorous. First time a book made me "lol". I also empathize with Yossarian (the protagonist), and the WW2 bomber setting is really interesting to me. Quite a trial to read. Highly recommend.

John Dies at the end, will always hold a place in my favorites for reasons more than just what's written.
And I seldom read, except for (please don't berate me) Philosophical pieces, and anything with Surreal vibes.

hell yea that's my shit

my favorite is probably Ender's Game or something. i haven't read many books outside of school curriculum
i feel like i should love reading but doing only one thing at a time somehow scares me nowadays. if i read anything it has to be an audiobook so i can do other things or i need to listen to music while reading. i think i might be over-stimulated

Probably 1984 by George Orwell. One of my favourite books of all time.

I found a £5 note in a copy of Catch-22 I haven't touched in years so it is one of my favourite books as well!!! I've never read it though. I tried to when I was younger and didn't get into it, it's on my to read list.

Same here. I tried in like 7th grade, but I had no idea what was happening after a couple chapters and wasn't intrigued. But, had at it again. Glad I did.

Hi Mate,

I have to say I love the Harry Potter books and the lords of the rings so much more detail in them compared to the movies but they are equally just as good.

Kind regards,
