    So hard to choose just one... so here's my Top 5 in no particular order:

    Memoirs of a Geisha - Arthur Golden
    The Secret History - Donna Tartt
    The Poisonwood Bible - Barbara Kingsolver
    Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell
    The Bell Jar - Sylvia Plath

    I loved that book! Thought none of his others lived up to it (not that i've read them all).

    My favourite book of all time though has to be A Prayer for Owen Meany - John Irving.

    Me too. Highbrow be damned.

    My favourite ever is I Capture the Castle by Dodie Smith.

    Reminds me of my childhood.

    Gosh I loved Thirty Nothing, but must have been a good 10 years since I read it when I was in my early twenties... now I am a thirty-ahem-something I would probably enjoy it even more. Thanks for the reminder :)

    If you haven't read the book I recommended called One Day by David Nicholls you should, I think you'd enjoy that too :) http://www.amazon.co.uk/One-Day-Dav...=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1280325304&sr=1-1

    I read it in my early 20's too and almost 30 now :D need to get another copy though as my brother stole it never to be returned :rolleyes:

    I've got "One Day" but haven't got around to reading it yet, far too many books on the "to read" list at the moment!! xxx

    Mine's got to be Jennifer Donnelly's "The Tea Rose" and sequel "Winter Rose" brilliant read and both books are huge - 3rd sequel out early next year called "Wild Rose"

    Its a family saga with love, murder,suspence spanning several era's dating back to 1898 in whitechapel around the time of the ripper - you won't be disappointed if you buy the first you will definately want the next! ;o)
