    The Sorrows Of Young Werther By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

    The Sorrows Of Young Werther By Johann Wolfgang von Goethe is by far my favourite book. It is a book written in the autobiographical sense about von Goethe's own life. It is an amazing book filled with love, heartbreak and sorrow. (Copied off Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia...

    Flowers In the Attic

    I Can't Name Just One

    So here's a couple of the best: Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card- That has to be one of the best books I've ever read. The whole series is really amazing, but that one has to be my favorite. A Million Little Peices by James Frey- Yes, I know it's all a lie. But that doesn't...

    It's Daft - I Love It!

    Mine has to be 'Sure Fire' by JAck Higgins. I couldn't stop laughing, it got quite daft (it was supposed to be action genre but it was getting daft) I actually think I laughed the most reading that book than I do watching 'The Catherine Tate Show' or something like that.

    It's My Name! Why Wouldn't I?

    My absolute favorite book is 'Listen for Rachel' by Lou Kassem. It's a beautiful story about a girl, Rachel, who is growing up during the civil war, and she helps people, she's a healer, or a doctor. I usually hate romance, but this is a sneaky romance book, you don't really know...

    The Periodic Table by Primo Levi.

    Warm, funny, kind, sad and joyful all in one. Just utterly human. I'm trying to learn Italian simply to read it in the language it was written in..
