My Top Fave Books
The Wasp Factory
"Disgusting. Vile. Terrifying. Absolutely Brilliant."
"Examines the effects of the First World War on the soldiers themselves in a hospital in Scotland. One of the best novels I have read in a long time. I advise anyone to read this book."
The Rotters' Club
"In my opinion Jonathan Coe is a massively underrated author and I love all his novels. It was tough to pick just one book of his for this list, as you can’t go wrong with any of his work."
The Man in the High Castle (Penguin Modern Classics)
"A huge what if story. What if the Allies had lost the Second World War. What if America was now split in two and one half controlled by Germany, the other half by Japan. This book is great."
Birdsong (Vintage War)
"Another war book. At first the time changes were confusing, but once I got used to them I couldn’t put this book down. Simply brilliant. A future classic in the making."
"I really only bought this book as I’m a huge fan of Mick Foley. This book is mind blowing. It’s not going to appeal to everyone, but it's worth a go."
Lord of the Flies
"One of those books that are on nearly every list on here, and for good reason. If you haven’t read it by now then you should have."
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time
"This was bought for me as a birthday present. It lay on my desk for weeks before I even looked at it, once I picked it up I couldn’t put it down. One book that will not be leant out ever."
"Another author I had trouble choosing just one novel. This book just creeps ahead of ‘How to be Good."
The Dark Tower VII: The Dark Tower
"I’m not the biggest fan of Stephen King but his Dark Tower series is just superb. It takes a lot of work to keep up with everything that these seven books contain, but it is defiantly worth it."
Little Britain: The Complete Scripts and Stuff: Series One: Vol 1
"It is either love or hate with Little Britain, but I love it, or otherwise this book wouldn’t be on the list. The third series was crap, but the first series was utter genius."
To Kill A Mockingbird
"Another one of those books that seem to be on every other list on here, but yet again it is well deserving. If you haven’t read it, read it now!"
The Crucible: A Play in Four Acts (Penguin Modern Classics)
"Centres around the Salem witch trails, but written during the senator McCarthy trials in the 1950s. A riveting read."
Paradise Lost (Penguin Classics)
"An absolute classic had to read it at school and at the beginning detested every bit of it. It soon grew on me, as it will you. The best epic poem by far."
1984 Nineteen Eighty-Four
"Yet another book that is on virtually every list on here. Orwell’s world is becoming truer and truer ever day. A very scary thought."
Northern Lights: Adult Edition (His Dark Materials)
"I want to be an armoured bear. ‘nough said."
Wrestlecrap: True Stories of the World's Maddest Wrestlers
"Looks at the absolutely stupid things to happen in the wrestling world. From Mantaur to OZ, it’s all here."
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Book 4): Adult Edition
"Ok, this is supposed to be a kid’s book, but it’s actually really good. This adult cover makes it look like you’re reading something other than Harry Potter when you’re on a train."
"My favourite poet, and the best war poet in my opinion."
"King Richard III": Second Series (Arden Shakespeare: Second Series)
"Shakespeare is a god. Forget Hamlet and Othello, Richard III is his best play."
The Penultimate Peril (A Series of Unfortunate Events: Book 12)
"What? Ok fine it’s another kid’s book, but its something to read when you don’t want to think too much. Plus this series is actually surprisingly good."
The Grapes of Wrath
"Of Mice of Men is fantastic, but this is my favourite Steinbeck novel. It does take a while to get going but keep with it."
The Return of the King: Return of the King Vol 3 (Lord of the Rings)
"I shouldn’t have to tell you to read this, you already should have."
"Yet another war book, but this time it’s an autobiography of a world war two British fighter pilot. Gives you real insight on what it was like to be there."
The Day of the Locust and the Dream Life of Balso Snell (Penguin Modern Classics)
"My last book on this list, and it has to go to Nathaniel West. ‘The Day of the Locust’ is my favourite work by West."
