Rainbows and Tears

The Lovely Bones
The Lovely Bones
"A truly beautiful book which conflicts with the de-sentisation of murder so common in society nowadays.  This became one of my favourites in the opening pages. It is poignant yet heartwarming."
Lucky
Lucky
"Unlike The Lovely Bones, Lucky is disturbing but superbly written.  Sebold tells her traumatic story with a shocking and admirable candour."
Paula
Paula
"Imprinted upon my soul."
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir
"I fell into Wurtzel's profound darkness in every chapter, like a wave of depression.  Bleak, heartbreaking and like reading old diary entries. Wurtzel is inspirational and an honour to meet in person."
Chocolat
Chocolat
"An indelible delight."
The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream
The Alchemist: A Fable About Following Your Dream
"My dreams become attainable reading this."
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3)
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Book 3)
"What list could be complete without Harry Potter? Suffice to say, this is my favourite and by far the best."
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China
Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China
"Compelling."
Moab is My Washpot
Moab is My Washpot
"Enlightening and highly (or wryly) entertaining."
Rebecca
Rebecca
"Along with Charlotte's Web, read at age nine, this is the book that made me want to write. Could be classed as chick-lit at it's earliest and finest, but the language is too good."
Gone with the Wind
Gone with the Wind
"As with Rebecca, a classic read as well as film. Both make me cry - frankly, my dear, I do give a damn! This is the greatest love story ever told."
Bleak House
Bleak House
"Arguably not Dickens' best but, in my opinion, a masterpiece."
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
Captain Corelli's Mandolin
"Colourful and inspired, this makes me weep with laughter and sorrow. Against the idyllic backdrop of Kefalonia this is a beautiful piece of writing with humour, love and tragedy in equal doses."
The Man with the Dancing Eyes
The Man with the Dancing Eyes
"A fairy tale for adults and hopeless romantics. Shortly after reading this, I found my own man with dancing eyes, and realised that fairy tales really do come true."
Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice
"My favourite Austen, my favourite read. Who can resist the far from delightful Mr Darcy?"
Emma
Emma
"I was once compared to Miss Emma Woodhouse - I'm unsure whether it was a compliment... The original comedy of manners."
To Kill A Mockingbird
To Kill A Mockingbird
"To Kill a Mockingbird belongs on every list. Not because it's a classic but because it's a joyous read. It belongs on the reading list of schools worldwide because it's an education."
Mrs. Dalloway
Mrs. Dalloway
"I read this for Uni because I had to and loathed it. I read it again and came to appreciate it. I re-read it for pleasure along with Michael Cunnigham's The Hours and loved it."
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards (Jim Qwilleran Feline Whodunnit)
The Cat Who Could Read Backwards (Jim Qwilleran Feline Whodunnit)
"My boyfriend introduced me to the Cat who... books where Jim Qwilleran solves murder mysteries with help from his siamese cats Koko and Yum Yum. Light and absorbing reads."
Pawn Of Prophecy: Book One Of The Belgariad (The Belgariad (TW))
Pawn Of Prophecy: Book One Of The Belgariad (The Belgariad (TW))
"I admit I turned my nose up at fantasy but after some nagging I gave it a go and began with The Belgariad quintet and followed the story to it's conclusion in The Mallorean. I fell in love."
The Iliad (Penguin Classics)
The Iliad (Penguin Classics)
"The epitome of engaging stories and masterful construction."
The House Of The Spirits
The House Of The Spirits
"Allende's novels are all intoxicating, especially the House of the Spirits. The influence of Gabriel Garcia Marquez is evident and this is reminiscent of 100 years of Solitude."
Anne of Green Gables
Anne of Green Gables
"Representative of a childhood of reading and escaping. This captivated me as a child and contributed to my love of reading. As did so many other classic children's books which I regret to ignore."
Memoirs Of A Geisha
Memoirs Of A Geisha
"Enchanting."
Divine Secrets of the Ya-ya Sisterhood
Divine Secrets of the Ya-ya Sisterhood
"A book to curl up on the sofa and become lost in, which is just what I did!"
