Favorite Book to Read

The Top Ten

1 The Bible

I love the bible and all the best quotes such as it's okay to have slave and beat them as long as they don't die or if you see your uncle naked your considered an abomination or if you disrespect your parents you should die. I swear somebody should google the fun stuff in the bible! - Eli

The Bible is God's love letter to us. How can it NOT be my favorite? Great to see this is Number One! Praise God!

Twilight is number three? Looks like there's a lot of teenage emo girls here!

The best book ever. Some people avoid to read it, but is our history, it is all types of books at the same time, history, autohelp etc.

I don't agree with this. An Islamic, Jewish etc would not

2 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

Harry Potter is no doubt the best. It's unique and the story doesn't even revolve on a love story just like almost all other famous books. Harry Potter did not become famous because of a good-looking lead role. It became famous because because it's a story you don't hear everyday. It's unimaginable and superb. Love stories are so typical, not that they ain't good or something... But Harry Potter just STANDS OUT. It's perfect with it's twists and everything. It's really a phenomenon. - feiy_o6

The story line is amazing along with the subtle hints you have to really dig into to find out. Along with the awesome writing and the fact that J.K. rowling is Amazing at making even the little things come out big in the long run makes this the best series ever

I get that the Bible is number one, but twilight at number 3? Crazy. Harry potter is the world that all can escape in and none will return without having loved or learnt something from within this magic and bewildering universe. Nothing can beat it :) JK really should be proud! - DamonSalvatore

I just vote because I hate the bible lol - RobertTheMan

3 A Game of Thrones - George R. R. Martin
4 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - J.K. Rowling

Amazing book to read. I couldn't put it down until I had read the book. George loses an ear, fred, Madeye, my favorite character Dobby, Bellatrix Lestrange (the ass) Voldemort and others die in this worldwide phenomenon.

So many of my favorite characters died in this book, but I feel Hermione got even smarter (is that possible? ), Fred and George were funnier and everyone grew so much. We finally got to see where Snape's loyalties had laid. :'(

I am obsessed with the harry potter series. in this book, my favorite character died and it still became my favorite of the series. that's saying A LOT. - nonithecat

Twilight is higher than this?

5 Twilight - Stephenie Meyer

I read this book 6 times and the sequel "New Moon" 3 times. Both of these books are the BEST. Everyone that I've told to read these books became obsessed with them. A must read!

I don't know good bookiey


That book was the best of what I ever read. I think its the best book write so far.

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

Outstanding, nothing can compare. Tolkien has created a whole world to explore and has influenced all fantasy books dramatically.

7 Artemis Fowl - Eoin Colfer
8 Everything Is Illuminated - Jonathan Safran Foer
9 Wonder - R.J. Palacio

Great story. Has well developed characters and a great story line. It really shows the true meaning of friendship. (And middle school)

10 Wuthering Heights - Charlotte Bronte

The Contenders

11 The Exorcist - William Peter Blatty
12 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix - J.K. Rowling
13 The Giver - Lois Lowry

This book is great! I could even feel the memories that the giver told Jonas. I have always thought that having a perfect life will be awesome... But now that I've read the book, I don't really think that having a perfect life is not so nice after all. But I highly recommended!

This book is way better than stupid twilight and harry potter, those books wouldn't even be famous if it didn't have a movie. did you know harry potter was rejected in publishing like more than 5 times!?!? The giver is popular and it doesn't have a movie - cielphantomhive

I had always thought of what a perfect world would be like. this had my answer. gripping and powerful, this is an awesome book to read.

Good book to read at least once every year to couple of years... - heather

14 Looking for Alaska - John Greene

best book ever! how is the Bible first -

15 Breaking Dawn - Stephenie Meyer
16 Redwall - Brian Jacques

AN AWESOME books definitely deserves before twilight. According to me, its only second to nothing.

17 Eragon - Christopher Paolini

Good fairy tail about a couple dragons

I cannot wait for the final instalment to come out

18 The Lightning Thief - Rick Riordan

Good but very sad. It's worth it at the end.

19 Sea of Truth - Andrea De Carlo
20 The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy - Douglas Adams

Laugh out loud social satire cum science fiction. This man wrote one book and turned it into a franchise and rightfully so. The planet earth as computer is a brilliant analogy. - mgenet

I refuse to answer that question on the grounds that I don't know the answer

The best books in the world are 'the Trilogy of Four' by Douglas Adams; funny, witty, science-y etc etc.
