  1. Blimey the only books on this list here I have read are Matilda and The Hobbit. The Shining is on my book shelf as is just one of a number that is on my 'to read' list in the future. I'll be saving this list I think :)

  4. Someone recommended The Sandman to me last night, so I'm pretty sure that this is a sign that I should check it out! Great recommendations.

  5. Definitely saving this book list. Thanks for the post!

  6. I gave up on Watership Down when I was little, but I definitely ought to dust it off now I'm older and give it another go!

  7. the greek myths look interesting.

  8. I just finished The Shining a few weeks ago and though I am not a Stephen King fan, that was such an artfully written novel! The movie, which I was most looking forward to experiencing, was sadly a let-down.

  9. You have excellent taste, Sophie! Some of my favourites on there. Slightly off the point, but I'm a bit envious of your Greek Myths slip case. Mine were inherited and I don't have one. Wah.

    I just got paid $7500 working off my computer this month. And if you think that's cool, my friend has twin toddlers and made over $8k her first month. It feels so good making so much money when other people have to work for so much less. This is what I do.....

  11. I think I must be the only person on Earth who didn't like The Catcher In the Rye. Granted, I've only read it once before and I might not have understood the deeper meaning in it, but I just didn't like it. I picked it up thinking it was going to be great because everyone in history had spoken so well of it, and it just sort of fizzled out and let me down. In my opinion, it's definitely overrated.

    What's one book that let you down in the past? I'm curious to know because the two of us usually have very similar taste in fiction.

  12. Oh, I don't know, I think a lot of people do not like The Catcher in the Rye - and I totally get why! I just love that book so much.

    To Kill a Mockingbird was a HUGE let down to me. Perhaps I needed to have read it in school where I would have had someone to talk to about the story.. I just didn't like it and do not see why it is such a hugely popular book.

  13. I am SO HAPPY to finally have a Folio book.. I am totally looking for more too. I got this one for a ridiculously good price on eBay - maybe you could find a replacement slip case on there?

  14. I love The Shining.. and I even loved the film too!

  15. I love reading Greek myths :))

  16. I don't think it's really a children's book, the story is so complex and I absolutely love it.

  17. It's SO AMAZING. One of my absolute favourite reads of all time.

  18. Thanks! I hope you find some books you enjoy - let me know if you read any and what you thought of them :))

  19. I have reread that book four or five times now, I absolutely love it.

  20. Oh PLEASE read The Shining! It still freaks me out now. I reread it every so often and I can't get over how amazing the story is.

  21. I must add One hundred years of solitude Sophie, I've read it 3 times already and there's always something new to find...

  22. Funny you should mention To Kill A Mockingbird ... I read that one a while back in elementary school and I remember liking the film way more than the book. I think one of the reasons why it's so popular is because it tackles a race issue. But, if someone were to ask me which book I'd recommend in the "racial issue" category, I would tell them to read The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill instead. That book literally changed my life - you should definitely add it to your To Read list ;)

  23. Ahh! You keep suggesting books and I HAVE SO MANY (but please, don't stop!) I picked up a copy of The Circle..? I think you recommended that and I'm excited to read it!

  24. HAHA Dude. I know what you mean. My shelves are FULL of books that I have yet to read and I keep buying more! Ack. It's a never-ending vicious cycle :P The Circle? No, I don't think that was me who recommended it to you -- I just looked it up and I've never read it. But it sounds really interesting! x

  25. I've only read of The Cather in The Rye and the other ones sounds worth it, so maybe I will check those out! x
