    My all-time, one and only, favorite is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. For a fun, easy read, I just read most of (the available books) The Mortal Instruments series and The Infernal Devices series.

    Atlas - Everest - Bellamy - Solomon - Benno - Cahill - Briggs - Cas - Sentry - Bannon - Ira - McCoy - Shannon - Harvey

    Room is actually the next book on my list. I have to read it for my literary theory class. I’m glad to see you enjoyed it.

    Favorites that others have mentioned that you absolutely have to read. Have to:
    John Dies at the End and This Book is Full of Spiders by David Wong
    Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
    The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver (one of my absolute favorites)
    Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (skip the film)

    And so many others that were mentioned, but these are my “biggies”

    Other recommendations:
    Life of Pi by Yann Martel (and see the film, if you haven’t)
    The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon
    The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
    The Giver by Lois Lowry (it’s actually a series, but the only other one I like is Son)
    The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger
    The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
    Brave New World by Aldous Huxley
    Anything by Douglas Adams
    Anything by Kurt Vonnegut (particularly Slaughterhouse-Five and Timequake)

    And, of course, the Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and LotR series.
