I've read "the Hellbound Heart" by Clive Barker so many times that the pages are beginning to fall out and I should probably purchase a new copy.

Some of my favourites are classics like 1984, Catcher in the Rye, The Great Gatsby, and Lord of the Flies. My all-time favourite is probably Paper Towns by John Green. I love all of his books, but Paper Towns just a bit more than the others. I've got to read a wider variety of books as I'm just always rereading my favorites. :lol:

Walden by Henry David Thoreau, for content. It's boring to read, but I got so much out of it.

I get very emotionally attached to stories and characters when I read them, so the emotional answer changes.

I Never Promised You a Rose Garden by Hannah Green. I have never been so entranced, affected and invigorated by a book. Catcher is second, and I definitely read it because of Billie. I let my friend borrow Rose Garden but then she moved -______- its about a girl with schizophrenia whose parents send her to a mental institution, she works through her demons and gets closer to herself and further from the destruction that can no longer haunt her. I related to it in an insane way and it's just beautifully written.

Jurassic Park :wub:

I've read it nine times since second grade. And I can't even guess how many times I've picked it up and just randomly flipped to a part...

My favorite book of all time has to be Crank by Ellen Hopkins. Ellen Hopkins is an amazing author and all her stories are awesome and based off of true stories. I recommend anything by her.

 

 

I also have another favorite; Go ask alice by anonymous. There is also a movie of it! Youtube is where I found it.

Catcher in the rye, best book EVER.

I love go ask Alice

I also LOVE s.e. Hinton's work. Rumble fish and the outsiders are outstanding but my favorite would have to be that was then this is now.

I thought it was truly amazing that green day named 2 of their songs after my favorite characters in books. ( rusty James and who wrote Holden caulfield?)

The entire A Song of Ice and Fire series is simply amazing. Words can't even describe how wonderful it is.

F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Beautiful and Damned." It's a poignant and written so well during a downward spiral of Fitzgerald's short life. The Great Gatsby is amazing, but I love this book more.

Catcher in the Rye, one of the few that's really stuck with me since I read it.

I would have to say the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich. I can't even count the number of times I have laughed through reading the series.
