Ten Really Good Books

The Top TenXW

1The Bible

The bible is like an instruction manual on how to get to heaven, find love, happiness and even freedom. It's the best book I have ever read. And if your think the bible just isn't for you cause it's too "spiritual" we'll think again there are love stories, stories about war and if your into supernatural kinda stuff well there is even stories of people fighting off demons there are even dragons and unicorns in the bible and it's all true so the next time you roll your eyes at the thought of picking up the bible and actually reading you may want to think twice because reading just one page may actually change your life

The bible is like your own personal guide it helps you with whatever you need and with the bible you have a bigger opportunity to going to heaven and another thing about the bible is that everything in the book came from people of God or from God, and the last thing I want to say is that the advice the Bible gives us is never wrong, or it never fails to help us in times of sorrow or temptation.

So the bible and twilight are on the top of this list? That is my sign that this list is full of complete b/s...

I Love the Lord and it makes me really happy that the Bible is currently at the top of this list.

2Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - J. K. Rowling

This is the best
Wizards can beat vampires anyway
Also, no one likes a sparky vampire.
No offense.

The hunger games should be one of these I know it's just my opinion but they are some of the most epic books to me. Love, Hunger Games fans everywhere

The last Harry Potter book was the best in the series in my opinion, but this is the one that started it all.

Read it, and it's tremendous!

3Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

If you find this book good... You are clearly an immature/inexperienced reader. There is nothing wrong with escapist fiction but this is an example of why some people ridicule escapist fiction. I read this text at the age of 11, loved it. Now I'm 17 and I would list it as one of the worst texts I've ever read. Clearly, I've realized that because at the age of 11 I was an immature reader. The people who "love" Twilight read it for the ending. They are those who avoid the suspense or the elements that cause the plot to be manipulated. The characters in the text aren't round, ALL are flat. Nothing dynamic about the characters. The text is apparently fantasy... It isn't logic whatsoever. There isn't suspension of disbelief. That is a failure that causes the reader to ask questions like, "Why does his skin shine? " One, a vamp's skin doesn't shine, UNLESS you suspend that disbelief. There are many faults in this text I could go on about. I guess on my free time I will submit a paper about the faults in S. Meyer's Twilight. It's sad that a book like this is receiving such praise for mediocrity. To make things worse, the laud it received ignited the publication of the atrocious 50 Shades series.


I don't think this book is rubbish. It's really good. According to fiction, this is really one of the best. Why don't the haters try to write an extraordinary book and try to acquire an imagination like stephenie meyer rather than complaining?

This is it, I've lost my faith in humanity.

4Diary Of A Wimpy Kid - Jeff Kinney

Its about a kid who goes through the ups, and downs in life. He almost learns lessons, but in the end fails to understand them, but he still has a happy ending. It is a comedy series, and in some ways is a guide to school. Enjoy, mostly for readers 10 through 18.

This is one of the best books in history, Jeff Kinney Rocks! One of the best sentences in the book is when Greg said: "I came to my senses a few hours later." I didn't know that sentence meant, but then I realized it meant he felt something a few hours later. Another great sentence is when Fregley said: "JUICE! JUICE! " - TopTenJackson

Read the whole series but never read this book but the series is amazing!

I love this book series. - cosmo

5The Lord of the Rings - J.R.R. Tolkien

These books will last you a lifetime as you can read them again and again and again and then read them to your children, your grandchildren and your dog. Seriously the best books ever written. Tolkiens world is incredibly detailed and brilliantly depicted. Your attention is held from the first page till the last and you WILL lie awake at night wondering what happens next to your favourite characters.

The lord of the rings is legendary both in film and book, the lord of the rings is amazing, I can obviously see why the bible is top but I think the lotr should be up there as well

Nothing beats lord of the rings, not even the bible, it is by far the greatest book ever written so many great parts and killer punches, LOVE IT

Best fiction book series of all time! - Alpha101

6The DaVinci Code - Dan Brown

Just amazing. I love this book, and I'm not Christian or Catholic. I think that everybody should read this book, since the facts make it real and the plot is incredibly suspensful

a very good novel with excellent facts supporting it to make it real rather than fiction

Beautifully written, Dan Brown is my favourite author ^. ^

7The Hunger Games - Suzanne Collins

Emotional ^^ adventure rollercoaster, definite page-turner, and one of my favorite books this decade! Love it!

Best books ever. No doubt about it. SO fast paced and action packed, plus there is a romantic twist to it, so its amazing for ANYONE. Read It, trust me it will be worth your while!

Incredible book! Narration is really breathtaking. And gradation from local problems of one person to big political conflict is truly exciting. Read 3 books and could not stop.

This is one of the best books ever. - cosmo

8Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

If I make a list of the best fantasy books ever I will put this book on the third place. First will be the Lord of the Rings and second will be Harry Potter.

This is a trillion times better than twilight and should be in the top five

One of the best books ever written"

Read this book when I was about eleven, and I still read it today. It's the kind of book you don't grow out of, and is truly a beautiful story. In fact, this author produces beautiful books as a whole. - jdougg

Oh my gods, I cannot get enough of this book and the rest in the series- and the other series- and, just any book by Rick Riordan is absolutely amazing.

The Contenders

11To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee

beat twilight hands down.

This should be in the top three of any category in which it fits. It's To Kill a Mockingbird, no explanation needed.

Was suprised not to find this in the top 3. Such an amazing book, told so well. It could change your perspective on everything. If you haven't read it yet, do me a favour and do it, you will be really glad.

12Divergent - Veronica Roth

I guarantee if you read this you'll stay up all night. A page turner, definitely. I am currently on book two and I can't wait for allegiant. Who agrees?

I love the divergent series its awesome it's my favorite series ever

Awesome book. 77th! Really people? You need some sense knocked into you.

13The Fault In Our Stars - John Green

This is by far one of my favourite books. It has humour, love and sadness all packed into one amazing book. John Green's style of writing is amazing in every book he's written but this one just seems to stand out to me. It made me laugh and it made me cry. Overall it's a generally fantastic book that had me right from the beggining. Even my mom couldn't put it down after starting it and that is saying something! Best book ever and you gotta vote for it. If you haven't read it yet I suggest you go to the nearest book shop, buy it and read it because it is amazing!

Some of the books above this book are really bad, some are really good, but this one stands out to me among all the rest.

14The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas

The Bible? Twilight? Harry Potter? you consider those things good books? I mean Twilight and Harry Potter are just commercial books, and the Bible is just something made up to control the people, and I bet that more than half the people who voted it hasn't even read it - TheAhiru17

This book is hard to put down... the best story of desire and revenge ever written! They just do not write them like this anymore-

Amazing book, every sensible humane being should red this

A real classic with a great story

151984 - George Orwell

This work has actually gotten more and more relevant with every security camera and tracking device that is deployed.

This book twisted and warped my mind until I was having a full blown existentialist crisis. Does this book exist? Does the truth exist? DO I EXIST?

A book which leaves readers awed and suspended in thought... Or that's what it did for me anyway. Shockingly relevant. Beautiful.

Trust me and read it. Should be #1 on the list to be honest. Best book I've read so far

16Allegiant - Veronica Roth

Best book in the world.

17Firestar's Quest - Erin Hunter

Not the best Warriors book, but I'd still recommend it. Bluestar's Prophecy is better.

Best book ever! Comes highly recommended... BY ME! - Silverstream101

Redtail ivypool dovewing breezepelt I love warrior books
