I also really enjoyed 1984, I would love to make it through Dante someday!
Some of my favourites are The Hour I First Believed (Wally Lamb), Freaks and Revelations (Davida Wills Hurwin), and Brain on Fire (Susannah Cahalan). Another classic would be Cather in the Rye (JD Salinger).

My all time favourite series of books is the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon. (historical fiction/romance) I was THRILLED when it became a TV show.

I really loved Water for Elephants. I thought it was beautifully written and was a great story. Unfortunately, the movie adaptation did it no justice. I couldn't even finish the movie because I was so disappointed. I've tried to read Pride & Prejudice several times and can never get past the first few chapters. Not an Austen fan.
I do love Little Women, the Harry Potter series, The Great Gatsby, and the Book Thief. Among a million others.

I love reading. And its very hard for me to list my favorite or just few books. There are few that definitely are part of my all time favorites:
Jon Krakauer Into the Wild
A.A.Milne Winnie The Pooh
P.Coelho Alchemist and Veronica Decides to Die (I love P.Coelho and his book a lot, I get and find something new everytime i re-read it)
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry The Little Prince (another one that gives me something new everytime I read it)
I really like G.G.Marquez work and I could go on and on :)

I love Pride and Prejudice.

I love all of Ellen Hopkins books, they are so real and raw. I have pretty much all of them.
Those are some great books, I have not read any of those books but I have seen the movie Water For Elephants and I loved it so I can only imagine how beautifully written the book would be.
I am a very passionate reader and I am always looking for new books to read so thank you for sharing this! :)
