    Hmm, I've read quite a bit, HP series, Hunger Games series, books by John Green, The Book Thief, The Hobbit, Gone, The Maze Runner, Divergent, and loads more but those are off the top of my head.

    My favourite has to be Paper towns by John Green and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

    It really depends what genre you're into, if you're into Young adult and romantic comedy, I recommend John Green, if you're into drama and dystopia, then the Hunger games or The Maze runner.

    I don't read books as much as I'd like to, my main reading is from news articles online, but when I went through a phase of reading a lot I read the hunger games series, 1984 and animal farm. I'd definitely recommend all of these books.

    The Hunger Games series is easy to read and has a good, interesting storyline.

    Animal Farm is amazing and has a strong message, it can also just be read as a novel without looking into the reason why the book was written so it's quite versatile and could be read by lots of ages. My favourite quote comes from that book actually (All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others).

    1984 is the hardest read out of all of these and can be difficult to wrap your head around (I had to re-read the first chapter a few times because I kept losing track of what was happening) but once you get into it it's a great book. I wouldn't recommend this one if you have trouble reading though, maybe save it for when you're older.

    Hi there, I love reading and find it a really enjoyable past-time. I couldn't possibly write down all the books i've read but I can tell you my two favorites out of the ones I've read so far. 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee, and '1984' by George Orwell. Love the narrative and presentation of themes in 'To Kill a Mockingbird', while the dystopian world created by Orwell is interesting and compelling.

    My favourite book is Gone With The Wind, but I don't know many people who liked, or even read, that.

    Sherlock Holmes is actually a really good read, and the Green Mile was also amazing.
