Favourite Books....Of ALL TIME!

I'm a massive Bookworm...even a bit of a geek... this post is gonna be about my all time favourite books...

#1 All time favourite is a trilogy..The Rose Series by Jennifer Donnelly

These books are tales of hardship, love, success & pain. They are fast paced and I couldn't stop reading once I started reading them. I plagued my local book shop for months to get me the final book in the series as soon as it was released in Ireland!

#2 A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini

A harrowing tale of the lives of two women in Afghanistan. It made me appreciate modern day life in Ireland. Another page turner and one I recommend to all my friends.

#3 Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom

A true story about a dying University Professor, who in the final months of his life details his views on life...sections include marriage/relationships, regrets death, ageing, forgiveness... Life changing is an understatement for the impact this book had on me. It made me take stock and appreciate the important things in life.

#4 The Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger

A romantic novel detailing Henry's time travelling, his love affair with Clare and all the funny situations his time travel lands him in.  Another page turner that I couldn't put down!

# 5 The Millennium Trilogy by Steig Larson

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl who Played with Fire and The Girl who kicked the Hornets Nest. I picked up The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo on a whim and when I finished the first fast paced thriller I was kicking myself I hadn't gotten the other two at the same time. Mystery, danger, suspense, romance it's all there in these three books!

So there we have it, some of my all time favourites...now that I have these out of my system I'll be able to crack on and do some reviews of books I'm currently reading!

What are your favourite books??..I'd love some recommendations!

PS.. I'm also guilty of reading trashy stuff like 50 Shades!!! (come on...the whole world was talking about it!!!)
