1. Harry Potter
While you might, at a push, persuade me to read Harry Potter, nothing on earth will induce me to pick up any of the Twilight books. Emo, angst-ridden teenage vampires? No thanks!
3. The Crimson Petal and the White
Here's a book I actually want to read, and have had in my TBR pile for a while. Your time will come, Michel Faber...your time will come.
4. A Thousand Splendid Suns
I finally got round to reading The Kite Runner this year, and loved it so much that I can hardly wait to start on Khaled Hosseini's other book. Though a part of me keeps putting it off, just so I'll still have it to look foward to. Am I weird?
5. A Song of Fire and Ice
This series seems to be everywhere I turn lately. I don't usually go in for fantasy much, but I haven't seen a bad review of these books yet so I may give them a try.
6. The Catcher in the Rye
I'm surprised they didn't give this one to us to read at school, but I somehow manage to have got through life without reading it. I really should correct the omission one day.
Here's another book that I feel I ought to read, simply because everyone else seems to have already read and enjoyed it. It's on my list!
