To kick things off, here is my own submission for "The One"!
The Shadow Of The Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I truly believe that no matter what genre you read, this book has something for you - murder, mystery, love, romance, comedy, tragedy, lyricism, travel, war, family... I could go on! It's one of my all time favourite books and one I try to push onto everyone haha.
The One that was a gift:
Second Glance by Jodi Picoult was given to me by a friend when she left the UK. I hadn't known her very long, but her pick was perfect, and had such a lovely inscription in the front. I'll treasure it forever!
The One that got away:
The One that makes you cry:
The Bridges of Madison County by James Waller. Every time. It's heartbreaking!
The One that still haunts you:
The Troop by Nick Cutter. If you haven't read it, I really don't know whether you should haha! Scenes from that book have not left my head since they entered my imagination. I'm traumatised! *shudder*
The One you always go back to:
It has to be the Harry Potter series for me. They're such comfort reads! The just take me back to some great years in my life. I always turn to them for an easy read between tougher books.
