                        This is a tough one but I would have to say ‘Mr Wigg’ by Inga Simpson. Such a beautifully written, soul healing book.

                        My favourite book is Monica McInerney’s The Trip of a Lifetime. It’s warm, funny , emotional about a loving family who care about each other. I really enjoyed it like all her other books.

                      27. Kelly Byrne says:

                        My Favourite would have to be Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank. So interesting, sad but also inspiring and a story we can all learn from.

                        I love supporting Australian authors so my vote for this year would be The Dry- Jane Harper. A cracking debut mystery thriller well worth being in the top 100.

                        Castle of Dreams- Elise McCune

                      35. Andrea Falting says:

                        I vote for When You Disappeared by John Marrs. This book left me breathless! The story it contains is a masterpiece…a modern day classic. Every word on every page held me transfixed, completely immersed in a tale like no other I’ve read. Lot’s of twists and turns throughout. I didn’t want to put it down or end.

                      36. Belinda Gay says:

                        My favourite book is The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons

                        A favourite book that I would recommend to anyone and which has stayed with me my entire life is Charlotte’s Web by E.B White. I remember adoring it as a child and I am looking forward to the days when I can read it to my own children and witness the wonder and magic of this story on their own little faces ????

                      41. Sue Willett says:

                      43. Cheri Williams says:

                        I’m re-reading Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaids Tale once again. All the publicity about the new mini series was a catalyst to re-experience the joy of reading this book.

                      44. Anna Ely says:

                        Well that is tricky…my favourite books aren’t those I would recommend to friends as a rule. Some books suit some friends and other books just do no,mostly not.. So huge compromise here! Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T E Lawrence. Took ages to read as I keep re reading pages for the pleasure.

                      45. Melissa Ferguson says:

                        My top book is The Girl In Times Square by Paullina Simons

                        So many favorite books, but I always loved Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. I read the book when the Colin Firth series was on abc.

                      58. Jenny Geraghty says:

                        A book for a lifetime of memories is “Barbed wire and roses “. Written by Peter Yeldham. A brilliant novel of War, love, loss and understanding. My Grandfather was in the 1st world war and reading this book made understanding
                        the effects of shell shock less of a mystery. The storytelling is beautiful and the ending gives closure. Just a lovely story that leaves you feeling satisfied. Brilliant….just brilliant…
