I always find it a dilemma when people ask me what my most favourite book is. How can I choose just one? There are so many! So as a start I’ve selected five of some of my favourite books to share with you. Let me know what five of your favourites are.
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini because it is so moving and so well written.
Unreliable Memoirs by Clive James because I couldn’t help but laugh out loud in cafes and buses.
My Fortunate Life by A B Facey as it gives an insight into Australia’s history and a man who had an amazing life. Full of resilience and adventure.
The Lord of the Rings by J R R Tolkien (this could be cheating as really it’s 3 books) because it brought my imagination alive for me as a teenager. I truly marvel at what a complex world Tolkein built.
That Pesky Rat by Lauren Child just because it’s so clever and such fun. It’s for ages 5+ and you’ll be saying ‘that pesky rat!’ for weeks afterward!
