I like reading books, but I especially favor historical romance. I have top 5 favorites by Judith McNaught. I love her books. I'm a fan. I don't know if you will find these books interesting as I do. Here is the list(in random order): 1. Whitney my Love 2. Something wonderful 3. Once and Always 4. Perfect 5. Kingdom of Dreams(loved it!) So, how about you? Can you share your Top 5 favorite books? Not necessarily historical, of course.

Top five favorite books? That can be hard for me, since there are so many books that I like. For the classics, my top 5 would be Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, Charles Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and Margaret Mitchell's Gone With the Wind. Right now, I'm addicted to paranormal romance novels, and my top 5 series are the following: 1. JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. 2. Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series 3. Karen Marie Moning's Highlander series 4. Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake series 5. Nalini Singh's Psy/Changeling series. Among the Young Adult genre: 1. JK Rowling's Harry Potter series 2. Lloyd Alexander's Chronicles of Prydain series 3. Eoin Colfer's Artemis Fowl series 4. C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia 5. Christopher Paulini's Eragon These are just a few that came to my mind..LOL..

These are just few that came to your mind? Wow, you've got a lot of books then. I'm not very familiar with your sort of books but I believed they're interesting. I will make note of your list and try to read them in the future(I need to finish my books first) I think I'll try JR Wards Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Would you mind telling me what's this book all about? Thank you.

I love, love JR Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Right now, there are six books plus an Insider's Guide. The seventh book is coming out next year. It's about a group of warrior vampires, whose goal is to protect their species against extinction from their enemies. It is set in contemporary times in Caldwell, New York. The vampires here are not undead, but a separate species from humans. If you want to know more, you can check out her website (jrward.com). I highly recommend the series.

Oh, wow. I don't know if I can pick just five books, but I will try. 1. I Know This Much Is True by Wally Lamb 2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte 3. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen 4. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling* 5. The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkein * - I like all the Harry Potter books, but this one is my favorite. I also really liked the Twilight series and Lord of the Rings series, but they don't quite make me top five.

I've read Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen. I liked the book and loved the movie. I'll try your other books. They look interesting.

Yes, I'll try to. But, actually I can't say that one of them deserves the first or the last place. 1. The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho 2. Think and Grow rich, Napoleon Hill 3. I, Robot, Isaac Asimov 4. Solaris, Ivan Efremov 5. Sherlock Holmes, Arthur Conan Doyle Have a nice day!

Hi volkus, I have a copy of Think and Grow rich by Napoleon Hill. I highly recommend it as a must read book. It never fails to motivate me when I'm feeling helpless and lost. Paulo coelho's The Alchemist is a great book. It's one of those books I couldn't put down. I think I'm going to try your other three. I'm kind of curious.
