Kevin the Chicken God

more recently I've enjoyed The Road because of how uniquely it is written

Death by Blackhole is a great non-fiction book as well

Looking at my library, I'd consider my favorites to be:

 

Good Omens by Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman

The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett (Reaper Man, Thud!, and Going Postal favorites)

The Dragonlance Chronicles Trilogy by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams

The World War series by Harry Turtledove

A Song of Fire and Ice series by George R.R. Martin

 

There's also a ton of Star Trek and Star Wars books that I have enjoyed, but that would be a little too long to list, but If anyone wants do go down either of those massive rabbitholes, I can give good suggestions of where to start.

 

I also do own and have read Dancing with Eternity by John Patrick Lowrie (a.k.a. The VA for the Sniper) and, while not my favorite, found it an enjoyable read.

I'm in the 1% of people in the world that not only doesn't read novels, but fucking hates the very concept of it. I have read 4 books though, but I've only finished 2 of them.

 

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (finished)

The Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins (finished)

Cell by Stephen King

White Fang by Jack London was an excellent read. I haven't read Call of the Wild yet, but when I have time I have to read it.

I never read books, but Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini was one of my favorite ones.

Love the Harry Potter series

Love To Kill A Mockingbird

Darwin's Origin of Species (I have a first edition copy so I just had to read it)

Dracula

Frankenstein

Hound of the Baskervilles (also have a first edition copy ;))

I enjoyed Tom Sawyer and Huck, Huck gets kind of bad in the last dozen or so chapters, I read that Twain stopped writing it for a while and ran out of ideas for the ending and kind of slapped it all together

I agree with all but Dracula. Assuming you mean the original Bram Stoker Dracula, I just found it difficult to work through because of the writing style. Of course I was only in 5th grade last time I tried to read it.

First two sound like books you'd read in school.

You read those in school? :P

I love the Twilight series, The Fault in Our Stars is great, I was obsessed with The Hunger Games, and my all time favorites are The Mortal Instruments books.

I never would've personally read To Kill a Mockingbird or The Catcher in the Rye if my English teacher didn't mandate those books for book reports, though I will say that they are phenomenally written.
