Tell me your all time favorite book and an extremely brief description (no spoilers )
I am wanted to download some new books for my Kobo and would love some recommendations.
I don't like anything too "real" I can't deal with child Abuse books or anything like that. I also don't like the real long boring ones that seem to go nowhere

Pride and prejudice by Jane Austin. A well written romance novel that gives an insiders look at living in the Victorian era. Characters that you fall in love with.

The Harry potter series, I just loved the way J.K took you to a different world, and there was 7 books which I loved!
I also loved the book "the outsiders" I don't know why but I just got stuck right into it

Just some books I really enjoyed:
The Other Boleyn Girl - the whole Henry VIII thing when he meets Anne Boleyn... but told from the perspective of her sister, Mary. So we get the Anne/Henry story, but a lot more about Mary and her life as well. It got me into reading.
Oryx and Crake AND Year of the Flood (Margaret Atwood) - these go together. Not as a sequel/prequel thing, but more as a side-by-side tale... set in hte same time, sharing some characters, etc etc. It's a dystopian future, but it's really enjoyable. There's crazy animal stuff going on (genetic splicing and such) and there's some crazy groups... all very interesting regardless.
A Thousand Splendid Suns - a bit sad, a bit hopeful... set a few decades back in the Middle East. Deals with a girl who's married young to a much older man... and how she's treated by him. Later on, he marries another girl, much younger again still... and the relationship that grows between the two women.

The Bronze Horseman by Paulina Simons. It's a love story I guess is the best way to describe it, set in Russia during the war. It's part of a trilogy of books,but the original one was the best.

The seven waters trilogy by Juliet Marillier - a series of books spanning several generations, centring around the women in an irish clan and their ties to the earth (for the record - i suck at explaining this. but the books are divine).
The first one is a fully-fledged story of the 'six swans' grimm fairy tale.
Diana Gabaldons 'outlander series' - Claire ends up going through a time-warp in a stonehenge like rock formation, and ends up in scottland two hundred years prior.
action, love, murder, mystery etc etc - awesome set of books
