Have you ever read a book/ books that you simply love and feel like sharing with others? Well, post the titles of the books and the why you like it. Post a short synopsis if you want. WARNING: NO SPOILERS ALLOWED.

I like the entire Sherlock Holmes series written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The ingenius way of how the detective mind works is something out of this world. It's a detective novel.

I second that!
I love the whole series of Artemis Fowl and I believe the sixth book of the chronicles is coming out soon...^^
I have to say it has a little something for everyone and the way things are worded is so eloquent.

Hello everyone:
My friend has recommended "Warriors" to me and it is a very long series. I am currently reading the first book and can see it may have potential. I was wondering if you guys think I should bother reading all of the books to the excrutiatingly long series...I mean I would any book anyone recommends to me, as long as it isn't too romance-based. However, this book is about cats, what's more, cat- clans.
Apparently, this series is very well known and many readers enjoy it.

Hi, I work in an independent bookstore so if I come across any books I like, I will let you know from time to time.
A book I read recently that I enjoyed is called What I Was by Meg Rosoff. It is one of the strongest books I have read in a long time. I read all in one sitting. It is set on the coast of England in the 1960s, the main character is a young boy, we don`t actually learn his name until close to the end of the book. He has just been sent to his third private school, the first two he had to leave for various reasons. One day he meets Finn, who is living alone in abandoned fishing village not far from the school. The book centers around the relationship that develops between these two and the problems that arise when the narrators school life threatens his relationship with Finn. I really loved this book.

I really loved the books "The Joy Luck Club" by Amy Tan and "The Great Gatsby" by Fitzgerald

Also, "Across the nightingale floor" by Lian Hearn and "Wuthering Heights" by Emily Bronte.

All Sidney Sheldon's book are really nice, you'll get to addicted to it, you can't even put the book..

Harry Potter is a nice fiction, you'll surely fell in love with the characters

Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman is also very good..

Books from John Grisham is also nice but all are about laws and courts..

I could go on but then there would be no space.. ^___^

"The Alchemist" by Paulo Coehlo. It's one of few books that kept me interested in reading.

Gardens of the Moon by Steven Erikson and all the others core books in his series 'The Malazan Book of the Fallen'.

I've probably read this series 3 times now, and I never get tired of it.

Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind in the awesome series 'The Sword of Truth'.

Bloody good book series, at one scene in one of the latest book - my heart was pounding, it was THAT exciting.

I could go on, but I won't.
For now.

Wuthering Heights is an emotional rollercoaster. I loved it. I would read it again if I owned the book. I definitely recommend it.

I also the anything by Anner Rice is pretty beastly. You will literally fall in love with her characters. She is so amazing. The characters literally tell you their stories.
