Here are my favorites:

1. Hunger Games Trilogy
2. Classic Literature
3. Jane Eyre
4. Because of Winn-Dixie

There are a lot of books that I like but I can't remember.
Twilight is the book I really hate.

I'm going to name my 2 favorites.

Warbreaker- Brandon Sanderson.

Echos in Time-Daniel Steel.

Echos in time is an amazing story about a family during the holocaust.
I seriously recommend reading it.

Warbreaker. This book is hard for me describe, but it's about the journey of several characters in the book. Each of them have a important destiny at the end. It's really a amazing read.

I have a couple of favorites. My favorite book is The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I have read that book like two dozen times. I practically have it memorized. It is the story of a girl who breaks down one summer. Always makes me sad to think that Sylvia killed herself.

A recent favorite is The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides. Sad story but beautifully told.

I am drawn to stories of depressed, sad people...just like songs. I only listen to the sad, sad songs...

Homeland, Exile & Sojourn by R.A. Salvatore. R.A. & Forgotten Realms shaped a large portion of my childhood.

Sounds interesting, I'll try reading it if I find the books.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I read this book recently and it is absolutely amazing!

Also, I love The Perks of Being a Wallflower and The Catcher in the Rye.
