    I could name so many good books but my absolute, all time favourite is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. An epic love story between Jane and Mr Rochester. Nothing like the crap Hollywood love stories you get these days...

    Stephen King's Dark Tower series- 7 books following the quest of Roland, the worlds last gunslinger, as he tries to find the tower to save the worlds. All the worlds. Such vivid characters set in a world much like ours, that sometimes is ours.. Just awesome.

    Diana Gabaldons outlander series- time travel and historical fiction- again, awesomely vivid characters and a great yarn.

    Game of Thrones series- so bleak yet so addictive!

    Stephen king and Peter Straub did 2 books together- talisman and black house. Fantasy and mystery and gripping stories. Great stuff.

    Lol! That is seriously one of my favourite childhood books. I wanted to go live in a cave or bamboo hut on an island and bring over a cow behind my boat.
