Tolkien - The Hobbit I read this first in the 2nd grade. I love Tolkein.

just the other day my bestie was panicking about not having anything to read.Now i know what she is suffering from....

Mark Haddon's 'The curious incident of the dog in the night-time'. Brilliantly written. I felt like I was right with Christopher on his journey for peace and stability.

The Island - Victoria Hislop. One of those books you where you have to force yourself to slow down as you read it! Now I want to visit Spinalonga...
