    my favorite is catcher in the rye. I don't remember 98% of the story but it was enjoyable. I really liked the dialogue and the main character. the story felt so modern, i was shocked to find out the book was released in 1950s.

    Hmm I don't think I have just one favourite but the most recent reads that come to mind are "The name of the wind" and "The wise man's fear" by Patrick Rothfuss.
    Prince of thorns/King of thorns by Mark Lawrence as well ^^.

    I don't read many books but there were at least two that I took the time to read the whole way through and actually enjoyed. They were Peter Pan and Sphere by Michael Crichton. Video games are my preferred storytelling method.

    Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson. I love stories about how hellish high school is, and the character Melinda just resonated so much with me.

    Read it, it's not like any other story you've read.

    Novel would probably be Requiem for a Dream
    Short story would be I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream

    So many good titles...
    My bookcase is crammed full of books like the Riftwar Saga by Raymond E. Feist, Empress Orchid by Anchee Min and The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck.
    But I think my favourite of all time is still the autobiography of Adeline Yen Mah, Chinese Cinderella and Falling Leaves. I first read it as a child and I still read it from time to time. Don't think I've laughed and cried so much from a single book.
    At the moment I'm reading a biography of Pearl S. Buck called "Burying the Bones". She was a very interesting lady and a revolutionary writer of her time. I'm also reading "Scar Tissue" by Anthony Kiedis. I think I'm beginning to understand and appreciate a lot more of the Red Hot Chili Pepper songs just by knowing how they were conceived.
