I like to read fantasy and detective novels. So everyone has mentioned Harry Potter. But I liked Lord of the rings books and the hobit books. They were really good written. In other hand I liked Agatha Christie’s books and also detective stories written by finnish writers especially I like Ilkka Remes’ books.

#34

Harry Potter, derp.


#35

Catcher in the Rye by J. Salinger


#36

Love books. :smiley: Harry Potter of course :wink:

Hmmmm. Depends on the first book I pick up at the library. I recently just finished reading a book called Envy by Gregg Olsen. Based on true events but he change it into an original fictional story (duh).

Quite the mystery and thriller. I like it when the story really pulls me and keep me off the edge of my seat.
Oh, I like Nicholas Sparks books too. Romance and some thriller.


#37

Haruki Murakami (author)
The Tokyo Diaries


#38

Simon Scarrow’s “Eagle” series. It’s quite relaxing and not over overly complicated.

And of course Rosemary Sutcliff’s Eagle of the Ninth, The Silver Branch and The Lantern Bearers. I really don’t know who’d decided that they should be called “children’s books”, because they clearly aren’t.


#39

I like various kinds of books!

I was reading (and loving) A Song of Ice and Fire (George Martin), but uncle Martin is taking too long to write, so I paused and now I’m reading Inheritance \o/. (just arrived in Brazil this month T.T)

I loved The Hunger Games, The book thief/A menina que roubava livros (Markus Zusak), Die Geschichte Unendliche/The Neverending Story/História sem fim (Michael Ende), Dom Casmurro (Machado de Assis), Harry Potter (of course xD), Les Misérables (Victor Hugo), Pride and Prejudice/Orgulho e Preconceito (Jane Austen)…And many others!

Among the books that you spoke, I really want to read the Brave New World and 1984! I’m sure it’s good and that everyone should read them!

About the Brazilian authors, I recommend Machado de Assis, Erico Veríssimo, Luis Fernando Veríssimo, Carlos Drummond Andrade … they are awesome -!


#40

Fifty Shades of Grey hehe :stuck_out_tongue: Just read all three books, then read the 3 Hunger Games books, then just read a Jodi Picoult book

I’ll pretty much read anything! I’m slowly making my way through the classics like Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights etc
