Hands down it's 1984 by George Orwell. I love dystopian novels, and Orwell is just AMAZING!
By the way MadameMeow, what do you think about the previews for the newest movie version of Pride and Prejudice? I am a huge Jane Austen fan as well-how do you think they will cram a novel like that into two hours? I must say I'm hesitant to think it will be good...ah well.

I'm not too sure... it seems they are going for the very modern-heroine approach and that bothers me a little bit. Elizabeth Bennett was ahead of her time, but her time was still 1810, after all.
However, I must say that Bride and Prejudice, the Bollywood version, did REALLY well in condensing the book in a satisfying manner. I figure that Lydia's story and especially Georgiana's story will take a backseat as usual. But I'm still eager to go see
My all time favourite book is probably Heaven by Virginia Andrews.. Its was one of the first *grown up* books i ever read and ive read it hundreds of times since then.
Goodnight Lady by Martina Cole is also another favourite of mine, I dont know if you guys have heard of Martina Cole over there (im in the uk) but if you ever get a chance to read any of her books then please do it. They are very addictive!
My all time fave would would have to be To Kill a Mocking bird....and I also loved the Laura Ingals Wilder books to when I was growing up.....now I am more in to mystery and histrical fiction..I just read a book called Plantation that was so good!
