My all time favourite children’s book is How to Train Your Dragon. If I were to recommend any, it’d be the Mysterious Benedict Society. Not sure I’m in the age bracket anymore but still a very good series. I liked Us and Never Let Me Go too

i would recommend 'the bookseller of Kabul' because it's so infuriatingly oppressive against women.

Khaled Hosseini gave us some pretty amazing books. Historical fiction is one of my fav genres

I agree! I haven't got a passion for reading but his books definitely intrigued me!

I think I’ll give ‘Mysterious Benedict Society’ and ‘Never let me go’ a read. They seem promising

Moved to Books & Literature forum

Mine would be The Time Traveller's Wife, turned out to be quite a tearjerker.

Oh.... 😂
A short book... Describes true friendship in a beautiful way... Everything's reality so.. yeah it has humour.
The part where it describes losing a friend and especially you no you'll never see him again. I can relate my life easily with it.... So!

They are rather different in style, but are very good!

Probably the man who mistook his wife for a hat, a thousand splendid suns, what she couldn't tell you and this is going to hurt.
I cant pick between those 4 😫
