Number five just to clarify is not a title. Donald Goines wrote several books that delve into the life of characters from his life in the streets. I meant "anything" as in anything the man has written. Enjoy!

Wow, usually I have a lot of books that I want to read but because there are only 24 hours in a day, i can't read as much as I'd like to! Anyway, here are my 5 favourite books: 1) The True Story of Lilli Stubeck by James Aldridge 2) The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon 3) Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta 4) A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray (this is the 1st book in the Gemma trilogy, Rebel Angels and The Sweet Far Thing come after that.) 5) The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas by John Boyne (it's not really a favourite but it's a great book to read. Just like The Book Thief!) Happy Reading!
