curious incident of the dog in the night time by Mark Haddon is my favourite, but if you want a good series to read, try the Gone series by Michael Grant

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.

I cried when I read it and I cried when I watched the film...

Some good fiction:

- Catcher in the Rye, J.D. Salinger
- James Herriot Series
- The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

Some good non-fiction:
- No one left to lie to, Christopher Hitchens (This is particularly interesting right now as it offers a very different perspective on Bill and (to a lesser extent) Hillary Clinton at a time when he, in particular, seems to be thought of very highly.
- The Psychopath Test, Jon Ronson

Biography:
The Last Lecture, Randy Pausch
(This is definitely something I'd recommend if you want something a little different that will really change the way you think about life in general - it's a very charming book based on one of his recorded lectures on YouTube. The lecture is certainly worth a watch, you won't regret it)

The Crucible by Arthur Miller is astounding, but it’s a play.

The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini is cliche but amazing, it captures the essence of what it means to repent for your sins. Hosseini also wrote A Thousand Splendid Suns, another great novel that takes you on a journey to understand what it means to lose and gain.

Lolita, by Vladimir Nabokov is an awesome piece of literature I think everyone should read. The power of seduction has never been clearer, and Nabokov’s writing style is extraordinary.

Stephen King’s the Shining, if you like horror. Classic King.

I love Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, but what is 1984 like? I've been thinking of getting it but unsure if I should, would you recommend it?

And what is Brave new world like?

1984 and Brave New World are classic dystopian texts. Brave New World focuses more on a scientific future whereas 1984 is more political.They are very interesting reads and I would definitely recommend them.
