It would be quite impossible for me to do a top ten so I settled with fifteen, and they are NOT in any order. This is just to show you what sort of novels I like and to gear us up for a book review of one of them that I will be getting around to soonish.

  • The wind in the willows – Kenneth Grahame
  • Alice’s adventures in wonderland & Through the looking-glass – Lewis Carrol
  • Cider with Rosie – Laurie Lee
  • The Gormenghast trilogy – Mervyn Peake
  • C.S.Lewis’ Cosmic trilogy
  • The chronicles of Narnia – C.S.Lewis
  • The Edge chronicles (could not just pick one!) – Stuart and Riddell
  • The Hobbit – J.R.R.Tolkien
  • Pride and Prejudice – Jane Austen
  • The kraken wakes – John Wyndham
  • The Chrysalids – John Wyndham
  • Towards Zero – Agatha Christie
  • Sherlock Holmes (Short stories & novels) – Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
  • Dracula – Bram Stoker
  • The Lord of the Rings – J.R.R.Tolkien

Well there we go then, it is a fraction of all the books I have read and there are many others that I love which I couldn’t put on the list otherwise it would be really long! I omitted Harry Potter because everyone likes Harry Potter so it wouldn’t be news to you. Let me know if you like the same books or other novels by the same authors.
