I read "The Lovely Bones" and it crushed me. It gives you all the emotions a book should have. I would really recommend this book to anyone.

I've read 'The Road'. I studied it also for Year 12 English last year, and it tore me to pieces. A truly brilliant novel.

"Me before you." So beautiful and couldn't stop the tears. If you're looking for a great love story to read, pick this one up!

Wow. Now that's what you call a book list. Awesome. Haven't read a few but will put that right. Soon.
