    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, probably the first book I've ever laughed out loud at.

    I am a huge fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. As for 'excited to read', that series would take the biscuit. However, more generally, I think 1984 is the most thought-provoking and bespoke story I've read. Not even in the sense of 'be cautious about the power of government', but the books covers many philosophical queries and linguistic conundrum which makes you think a lot.
    1984 is a great book.

    not necessarily the best book but just one of my faves that I can read over and over and cry every time: PS I Love you by Cecilia Ahern.


    More intellectual and better written books I really cherish are The Handmaid's Tale - Margaret Atwood, A thousand splendid suns- khaled hosseni, 1984 - George Orwell, Room- Emma O Donoghue... Also, the Forest of Hands and Teeth series by Carrie Ryan are amazing (especially if you like divergent and the hunger games )

    My mind is literally blank right now, but as you can see I cannot pick out a single book, that would be unfair

    I love books by Harlen Coben and Martina Cole (crime/thriller). Has anyone else read books by these 2 authors because literally nobody I know does
