“1984” by George Orwell
“My Sister’s Keeper” by Jodi Picoult -so sad! Will write a review when I have a chance
“The Tales of Beedle the Bard” by J.K. Rowling – read it in about an hour. Great fairy tales!
“To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Leeso good. Will also write a review when I have a chance
“Bones to Ashes” by Kathy Reichs – another good book by her. Same formula but always a great read.
“The God of Small Things” by Arundhati Roy – the writing style takes a bit of getting used to but is absolutly fantastic! The way Roy describes things is amazing – in one of the reviews I read it says that she writes from the view of a child.
Cloudstreet by Tim Winton – great book! Interesting writing style but a fantastic storyline. Definitely one to read.
“Rides a Dread Legion” by Raymond E Feist – the newest book from this fantastic author. Fantastic as always but do not read unless you’ve read the 18 books in the series beforehand….


“The Tibetan Book of Living & Dying” by Sogyal Rinpoche
“The City of Falling Angels” by John Berendt
“Tokyo Cancelled” by Rana Dasgupta
“Einstein” by Walter Isaacson

“Audrey Hepburn, an Elegant Spirit” by Sean Hepburn Ferrer
“War & Peace” by Leo Tolstoy
