I want to compile a list of people's favorite books/the best books they've read thus far, overrated, underrated, true story, fiction-it doesn't matter as long as you thought it was great. Feel free to give a reason, as well, if you like.

Mine has to be The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett or Pilgrim's Progress by John Bunyan.

I can't really say which of the books I've ever read is objectively best. I can however say which book had the biggest impact on my life: Brave New World by Aldous Huxley

Peter Pan. I read it when I was an adult.

The Silmarillion by Tolkien. I still want to be an elf after reading this.

"Kushiel's Dart" by Jacqueline Carey. It's a fantasy novel set in sort of an alternate-universe Europe during the late medieval/early renaissance period. The plot is super intricate and engaging; the characters are vivid, believable, and emotionally deep; and the world feels like it's truly a living, breathing, genuine place. Epic adventure, comedy, romance, political machinations and intrigue, grand battles, tragedy, an exasperatingly clever villain... this book contains all of that and more, and I love every last bit of it.

The Gunslinger, can reread the crap out of that book, just a good character in a fascinating world, too bad stephen king doesn't write like that anymore, the drawing of the three was kind of a drag.

"Snow Crash" by Neal Stephenson. There's so much to love. It's the most exciting book I've ever read; it's one of the best at handling characters; has one of, if not THE, most unique writing styles; and it's incredibly thought-provoking.
