    I have a lot, but if I had to choose three it would probably be:

    As I lay Dying - Faulkner
    The Heart is a Lonely Hunter - McCullers
    Anna Karenina - Tolstoy

    I couldn't say which of those I prefer though.

    it's the most multi-functional book i've ever seen
    you can read it
    if you've got the whole series and you're short, you can use it to reach the top shelf
    it's also kinda like a joke book; like, you can open it randomly and read stuff out loud to people and they're gonna laugh
    it makes you feel better about yourself
    it gives aspiring writers hope that they may become successful even if they suck
    it gives fanfiction writers hope
    it has helped the sex toy industry a lot
    surprising as it may seem, it helped some women become more confident in bed
    and their partners were hopefully grateful for that
    if you're shy and don't really like being around people, you can always pretend to read it in public and you can be sure no one's gonna approach you
    you can use it as toilet paper

    My favourite is Salems Lot by Stephen King. Its a book I have loved from childhood and no matter how many times I have read it, it still grips me and makes me scared to sleep at night I'm a big fan of his other books but that one has always stood out for me. I would recommend the book to anyone else who loves horror. The film adaptation from the 70s is good but a lot has changed from the book. I long for the day someone makes a true adaptation of the book into a movie

    Tom Clancy's books are usually great. Red Storm Rising is certainly up there with the best if you like your Cold War themed techno thrillers.
    John Birmingham does some interesting alternate/altered history books, especially his Axis of Time series.

    Started it in first year, but 3yrs later still haven't finished it. I've got a general idea about how middle earth was made and Morgoth/Saurons role etc. Just don't have time to read it with uni and stuff
