My top 10 books ever including childhood favourites right up to now.
  1. Anne of green gables by LM Montgomery ( the relationship between Marilla and Anne was beautiful...and Gilbert...sigh)
  2. High endeavours - The life and times of Miles and Beryl Smeeton by Miles Clark (first book to give me insight to what an adventurous life was possible)
  3. Pride and prejudice by Jane Austen (read after the BBC tv adaption came out - first foray into historical fiction and has always been my favourite)
  4. Gracie - a love story by George Burns ( funny and delightful book which gave me an insight into a very real marriage - also the history of radio and tv in the 20th century )
  5. The Martian by Andy Weir ( just fantastically fantastic )
  6. Gone girl by Gillian Flynn (mentally unsettling - this book kept me guessing and stayed with me for a long time )
  7. Unbroken by Lauren Hillenbrand (inspiring)
  8. The magic faraway tree by Enid Blyton (childhood delight)
  9. Clan of the cave bear by Jean M Auel ( the first adult book I read which I couldn't put down)
  10. Sleepers by Lorenzo Carcaterra (first book I read which opening my eyes to the injustices of the world)
  11. Harry Potter by JK Rowling (any, either...all)
  12. A tale for a time being (the most beautifully written book - the language is divine)
  13. Rocco by Sheryl Jordan ( my YA favourite which I read over and over - am too scared to read it now for fear it will ruin it)
