  1. I love your list. (Quick question – are these your favorite books of all time? Or just what you’ve read recently?) I bet you would like my list as well (maybe that’s something I’ll post this summer?). Although we have different titles, the subjects and the genres are very similar.

    • Neither- These are the ones I want to read and haven’t yet. And I would love to see your reading list. I’m always in the market for a good book, whether fiction or non.

  2. An impressive list. I have just read Room as well and found it so disturbing that afterwards i couldnt stop thinking about it.
    Another book i would suggest is Sister by Rosamund Lupton. x

  3. Excellent list. I will borrow some for mine! Two books you might think about are Widow of the South by Robert Hicks and The Book Thief (awesome but the author’s name has slipped my mind). My list is on jennswondering.wordpress.com if you want to take a look.
