@Arshim:  Pride and Prejudice is my go-to book to read over and over. It is always on my bag while traveling.

 

I also love re-reading the Harry Potter series… don’t judge, I know I’m a nerd!

@Arshim:  Pride and Prejudice. Always. And Harry Potter, Oliver Twist, and really all the great classics you read when you’re little. And anything by Kurt Vonnegut. Hahaha

Harry Potter! Always and forever. If I live to 90 I’ll still be reading those books!

Agatha Christie murder mysteries, Chronicles of Prydain, Anne Perry novels (Charlotte and Thomas Pitt), Michael Connelly. Some of he classics (Pride and Prejudice, Persuasian, Sense and Sensibility). The Percy Jackson novels. Brian Jacques novels. It’s mostly a weird split between “children’s” books and cozy murder mysteries for me and of course timeless romances 🙂

Wuthering Heights is my absolute favorite. I love Pride and Prejudice, too.

For lighter reads I love Sophie Kinsella. Certainly not classic, but definitely comforting 😛

Anything by Jane Austen! I have a whole collection of her works at home 🙂 

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is one of the most fascinating pieces of literature ever written and I’ve been in love with it for 12 years now. I’ve also read The Hobbit and The Silmarillion and absolutely adore both. The language is gorgeous. 

I like the Bronte sisters too but I must admit reading Wuthering Heights makes me feel depressed and frustrated, especially the parts written in dialect. It’s a huge mountain to climb for a non-native English speaker!

The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath, or Stardust by Neil Gaiman. I think it’s more about where I was/what was going on with my life the first time I read both of those books, that makes me feel warm and happy everytime I re-read them. Plus they’re just damn good, haha

Between “Rebecca” by Daphne duMaurier and “Gone With the Wind”/”Scarlett”, I could live on 3 books!

Though I also LOVE the Hannibal series: Young Hannibal, Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal.
