  1. Favourite book is a difficult one, I read around 2 a week…. every week, without fail. Gah, i’ll have to go with The Green Mile, when the film was made, it was exactly as I had imagined.

  2. My favourite book has to be Fingersmith by Sarah Waters. It’s fab and if you haven’t read it go get one now!

  3. My favourite book is Goodbye, Jimmy Choo by Annie Sanders. I bought it on paperback several years ago and read it in a day, I just couldn’t put it down. I’ve read it three times!

  4. It’s so hard to choose one even if I try and tell myself it’s ‘just’ for a competition! Eventually I have decided that, this week at least, my favourite book is the Master and Margerita by Michel Bulgakov. it is completely nuts, sometimes tricky going, but totally rewards you for sticking with it.

  5. of all the books i have read the most memorable would be Birdsong by Sebastian Faulk, with the Harry Potters a very close second.

  6. my favourite book is The Stand by stephen king,as ever with kings books it is a constant page turner love the idea behind it and he tells a story fantastically.

  7. As a child my favourite was Black Beauty. I read it so much the cover fell off! As an adult, anything by Jane Austin although Pride and Prejudice is my favourite.

  8. I have enjoyed lots of books over the years but the one that stands out for me is Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett

  9. For sheer tear-jerk-ability, it would have to be John Irving’s ‘A Prayer for Owen Meany’, but I really love Bateman’s ‘Mystery Man’ series of books too……currently reading ‘The Prisoner of Brenda’ and loving it!

  10. My favourite book is actually a trilogy – The Fionavar Tapestry by Guy Gavriel Kay. I can guarantee I will cry – sometimes because it is sad and sometimes out of joy and relief at the happy bits – every time I read it. In fact, when suffering from dry eyes one day my novel solution was to pick up the final book and read it at intervals throughout the day.Result – lots of crying and much more comfortable eyes.

  11. I love The Island by Victoria Hislop about the leper colony on Spinalonga in Crete. Crete is my second home and I visited Spinalonga while reading the book (for the third time)-beautifully written and researched book, the author really knows Greece and its culture and people.

  12. Got to be The Chrysalids by John Wyndham, studied it for my English CSE way back in 1980 and have read it over and over again x

  13. My all time favourite is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, studied it for A Level but have come back to it again and again over the years! Must have read it 15 times and I still love every page!

  14. One of the best books I have read in recent years is The Africa Reich by Guy Saville, which became my new favourite!

  15. The Stand by Stephen King. A “good triumphing over evil” page-turner that you wouldn’t necessarily expect from the master of the horror genre

  16. My favourite book is Charlie & the Chocolate Factory. My Auntie bought it for me from a jumble sale when I was about aged 7 (I’m now 33) and it cost her about 20p. I read it from cover to cover without hardly putting it down. I loved it so much that when I finished it I started it from the beginning again, my Mum got fed up seeing me reading the same book. In the end all the pages dropped out one by one and I had to sellotape it back together. I don’t know what happened to the book, I probably had to throw it away but I still love the story now and watch it whenever it is on TV. The film isn’t the same as the book though and my child like imagination could always conjure up much better images than the film.

  17. Stephen King’s The green mile this is a fantastic book,the film was good but I think the book is even better

  18. Such a difficult question to answer… My favourite children’s book is The Witches, probably as an adult my favourite was Call The Midwive by Jennifer Worth.

  19. I have so many its hard to choose! I’d say overall it would have to be ‘the five people you meet in heaven’ by Mitch Albom! But ask me on another day and you might get a different answer!

  20. loved The Women’s Room by Marilyn French! one of those books that blows you away! also linda goodman’s love signs! one of those books i have dipped into several times over ten years!

  21. I have two favourite books, both by the same author, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns. They are both such good reads and totally absorbing.

  22. So hard to choose one – I love ‘To Kill a mocking bird.’ but also narnia books (all of them) and Victoria hislop’s books – the island.

  23. For me – the first book i ever read that gripped me so much i even pulled an all nighter just because i couldn’t put it down was John Grisham’s ‘A Time to Kill’
    And for the kids we all love to read the Hairy McClary Books

  24. Any of the Lee Child books about Jack Reacher – especially One Shot, which is about to be ruined on film by Tom Cruise!

  25. The one that sticks in my memory more than any other is ‘Forever Amber’ by Kathleen Winsor ‘ Unadulterated romance’ ahhhh

  26. Curious incident of the dog in the night time – Mark Haddon.

    It’s a very well written book and portrays the characters very well. Through the mind of a boy to his every day mannerisms, it’s a book I can pick up time and time again and continue to enjoy 🙂

  27. ‘Cancer Ward’ by solzhenitsyn – I know it is a strange one! This is a typical Russian novel in that the setting is stationary and the plot slow moving. It is psychologically, socially and politically deep and comments on the frustrating, illogical absolute power of the state. I see parallels with all governments. There is so much light, candy floss style literature available, which has its place, but sometimes I like something that makes me think.

  28. Farewell to France by Noel Barber– an oldie but goodie… has history, intrigue and a bit of how’s your father!

  29. For me there are too many to mention but one that stands out is a recent biography of Marilyn Monroe – it went into detail of her mental illness which she suffered in silence…great reminder of how far we have come 🙂

  30. I love reading and go between crime and adventure to romance and contemporary. But the book I’ve enjoyed reading the most lately is ‘Mini Shopahlic’, by Sophie Kinsella. The whole series of Shopaholic books are hilarious, but ‘Mini’ is my favourite.

  31. i absolutely love Lord of the Rings and cannot wait to read them to my kids when they get to about 9 and can really appreciate them

  32. “Jonathan Strange and Mr Norell” by Susanna Clarke. A wonderful story but more importantly, an amazing alomost Dickensian style of writing. It is pure style with the addition of substance. The kind of book that very rarely comes along

  33. I have so many favourites – I don’t know what to pick!

    My most recent favourite is JoJo Moyes’ Me Without You. It’s such a heartwarming story & really pushes the boundaries. Loved it x

  34. Tadpole’s Promise by Jeanne Willis is my favourite book. It’s a lovely little picture book with fantastic illustrations that my kids loved but with a jaw droppping ending that encapsulates doomed love as well as anything Shakespeare wrote!

  35. My favourite book is ‘Oranges are not the only fruit’ by Jeanette Winterson it’s a really passionate book and the protagonists faces many issues throughout the way. Even after I’d read it, I spent many day’s still thinking about it.

  36. My favourite book would have to be To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Its subject matter is serious but the book is full of warmth and humour.

  37. My favourite book of all time is To Kill A Mockingbird.

    My favourite book this year has been The Schemer by Kimberley Chambers.

  38. I loved Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland as a child but as an adult my favourite book is Douglas Coupland’s Girlfriend in a Coma.

  39. Charles Dickens’s Great Expectation I read it three/ four times a year & have done since I was at school. I just love all intricacies of all the character, the batty Miss Haversham, the lovely Aged Parent etc. It’s just fabulous!

  40. My favourite book is The Island by Victoria Hislop. If you haven’t read this you don’t know what your’re missing!

  41. I am a big kid at heart and absolutely love Roald Dahl’s “Danny the champion of the world!” Love it!

  42. My favourite genre of books is non-fiction/biography and, as such, an author rarely writes a series of books. My all time favourite has to be Slave by Mende Nazer; gripping from start to finish, highly recommended.

  43. Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte has been my favourite book since I studied it for ‘O’ Levels when I was fifteen!

  44. My favourite book is and will always be The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

    I read it cover to cover again and again when I was younger and used to daydream about all the magical lands they visited.

    I still read it today, but I have to share it with my daughters!

  45. My favourites are The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. The final installment is coming out in January and while I am grateful for the conclusion, it’s so sad there aren’t anymore especially as come fans have been around for 20-odd years!

    My twitter id is @rahelaa

  46. My favourite book is Sue Townsend’s The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole aged 13 3/4, it always makes me laugh. I always go back to it and read it again to cheer myself up.

  47. My favourite book of all time is The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint Exupery, it tells you all you need to know about life, love and friendship

  48. Hard to pin down a favourite book as my choice would change daily, depending on what sort of mood i was in when i read it. I enjoy autobiographies as much as novels, i like to see what celebrities & the famous are ‘really’ like.. there have been some surprises! Thanks for the giveaway ..

  49. I love Pride and Predjudice, had to read it at school and hated it with a vengence, but came back to it later after seeing the film on TV and now love it! Of the more recent novels Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini is also fabulous and well worth a read.

  50. I love all Phiippa Gregory’s books my favourite is The Other Bolyn Girl its miles better than the film

  51. Legend by David Gemmell, most people don’t know it’s a metaphor about the author’s battle against cancer.

  52. I would love to be more sophisticated but I still love Witches by Roald Dahl. I just read it with my daughter again and it is so well written

  53. The Tale of Peter Rabbit – so many happy childhood memories, I would read this book over and over, I read them to my girls, and they want them again and again, the pictures give me the goosebumps! :o)

  54. I love Marian Keyes books esp The Brightest Star, i also love reading the Harry potter books with the kids

  55. Just finished reading my favourite book. Its ‘Me Before You’ by Jojo Moyes. Its the first book iv read that had me crying my eyes out. Absolutely fab
