Awww man!! It's so hard to choose a favorite!! I like majority every book I read!! If I HAD to choose a book, it would probably be Identical by Ellen Hopkins. Actually all books by her are my favorite. That woman can work magic with a pen!
About a 14 year old boy coming of age in the 1920's as his grandfather is heading over the hill. HILARIOUS BOOK! Written a little like "To Kill a Mockingbrid". The book tells of Will Tweedys adventures in a poor town.
This book made me laugh over and over and then I cried too.
Don't bother with the never finished sequel that was made after Olive Ann Burns died.
The Stand by Stephen King-his finest moment. Never before have i been so engrossed and gripped by a story as i have this one. King mixes terror and drama so perfectly it takes your breath away. The story of the last survivors on earth wont be beaten and i have re-read the book 3 times.
I'm not sure what my absolute favourite is, but The Giver by Lois Lowry is definitely up there. It's simple and classic, original and educational, as well as inspiring. Mind you I haven't read this book since the eighth grade, but I remember the story clear as a window.
My favorite book is Keeping You a Secret by Julie Ann Peters This book is my favourite because the ending isn't the hollywood happy ending that most teenage romances seem to fall into. It ends in a realistic way and doesn't trick the mind into thinking romance ends with the fairy tale ending.
This is a story of a young girl, just realizing her sexuality and has to throw her life away to keep the girl she loves. It is an amazing story of love, heart ache and being accepted, while still trying to finish school. I woudl recommend this book to anyone.
There is always some madness in love, but there is also always some reason in madness.
My all time favorite has to be, without a doubt Wuthering Heights. It took my breathe away and kept me captured by it's raw beauty. I can honestly and proudly say this is the first book i fell in love with.
