It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.

2. Breakfast at Tiffany's- Truman Capote

3. Pride and Predjudice- Jane Austen
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

4. IT- Stephen King

5. The Great Gatsby- F. Scott Fitzgerald
In my younger and more vulnerable years my father gave me some advice that I've been turning over in my mind ever since.

6. Three Men In A Boat- Jerome K. Jerome

7. Rebecca- Daphne Du Maurier
Last night I dreamt I went to Manderlay again.

8. The Haunting of Hill House- Shirley Jackson

It was a pleasure to burn.

10. Night Watch- Terry Pratchett
