by Stephen King
This is a book of short stories and is the first book I EVER bought from a second hand book store. This officially started my love affair with perusing through musty smelling book shelves in every town and country I go to. 'The Langoliers' is my fav story. It is about a long haul flight where 10 passengers wake up and the crew and other passengers have disappeared - spooky! Stephen King writes one page a day and sleeps with the light on.

Technically this is a play but I love to read it anyway. Part One is my favourite. Reading a play is a nice variation on reading a book. It's great to read in a different format for a change. This play tackles being gay, AIDS, religion and mental illness. There is also a movie/series thingy which you can watch on a rainy day at home. Meryl Streep is in it!
by Marian Keyes
I have read this book so many times and it has the wonderful effect of relaxing me and making me laugh. It's an everything is going to be alright book. I love the main character in this novel. She is so human. This book has got me through some pretty hard times and I appreciate Marian Keyes for that. Some people don't enjoy her writing but she is my idol and I love her.
Tomorrow when the War Began
by John Marsden. As a teenager, I became obsessed with where this book should be filmed in New Zealand. It's an Australian book but for some reason, I felt that I owned it and it should be filmed here. I found the perfect spot but now I can't remember where it is and I will never forgive the abomination that is the movie made based on this amazing book.

This book captured me so completely when I was a kid, I used to sneak into my school library to read it over and over again. I don't think anyone else in my whole school read it apart from me!

I love this book about sweet revenge. Everyone knows about how good it is to get back at someone who has wronged you. The Little Mole goes on an adventure to find the asshole who has shat on his head and when he does, he shits on his head. AWESOME.
