Awesome thread! Here I go with my top ten

1- A Confederacy of Dunces - John Kenedy Toole. Awesome book that critics our society. Really Humoristic.
2- The colour of Magic - Terry Pratchett. The first one of the Discworld series. The one I have the most affection
3- The Colour that fell from the Sky - Lovecraft. I know it's not a novel, or a book, but this story gets me everytime I read it like it's the first time ever.
4- The Golden Compass - Philiph Pullman. He is one awesome novelist. The magic that runs in this book catches you from the very beginning.
5- Las Plantas Carnivoras - Pablo De Santis. Awesome writer. Gave this book to someone that never read it and never retourned it back to me. Great loss.
6- The Catcher in the Rye - Salinger. Anything that Salinger writes is a masterpiece. Don't ask me why or how.
7- Matilda - Rohal Dahl. I could read this a million times. Rohal is an incredible author.
8- El Libro de los Abrazos - Eduardo Galeano. Every story is worth reading.
9- 100 Años de Soledad - G.G.Marquez. Amazing story. Sometimes funny, incredibly sad, sometimes creepy.
10- A Casual Vacancy -Rowling. First book I read this year, blew my mind. It's awesome what this very known writer can do outside the Potter world.

Anyway, the worst part of this top ten is that I love every book at the same place. And obviously, ten is never enough!
