My Favourite Books of all time

 1. Harry Potter - J.K. Rowling. A childhood favourite, I read every one that was out when I was five and adore them still. My absolute favourite series of all time, with Skulduggery coming in a VERY close second. But the HP characters win, hands down.

 2. Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy. Fast-paced, funny, witty dialogue, dark pasts... what more could you ask for?


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. The most suspenseful books I have ever read. 

Falling Leaves - Adeline Yen Mah. True story about an unloved Chinese daughter and how she found happiness. Set during the rise of Communism, it's well told and gives a glimpse into a different kind of world.

Interesting charcters, wit and magic. Great.

My sister's keeper - Jodi Picoult. A real tear-jerker. I won't ruin it for you but let's just say, the movie ended the exact opposite of how the book did. Another example of books being better than films. You really feel for the characters.

Slumdog Millionaire - Vikas Swarup.I love the way this is structured, with a chapter for each question. Great storytelling.

 Inheritance Saga - Christopher Paolini. Started when he was 15, these books are very looong. But they make for good reads if you're not too cynical and just enjoy them.

The Devil Wears Prada - Audrey Niffenegger. Great for light reading when you want to relax.

Jodi Picoult - Vanishing Acts. Secrets, drama and relationships. What would you do?
 Blood Ties - Sophie McKenzie. I love this book. Romance, adventure, science fiction... And a gigantic twist nearish the end.

Eva Ibbotson - The Star of Kazan. Magical.

Higher institite of villainous education - Mike Walden. Excitement, adventure and crime.
