Can you name your seven favourite books of all time?

Did you grow up with your #NoseStuckInABook just like Belle? To celebrate the release of Beauty and the Beast, we asked fans to share their favourite reads with us.

Have you dreamt of your very own library? Are you always walking around with your nose stuck in a book? As everyone’s favourite bookworm returns to the big screen in Beauty and the Beast, we wondered which books would have pride of place on your shelves. We got some great answers from our fans – check them out below.
  1. Room on the Broom
  2. Each Peach Pear Plum
  3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar
  4. The Gruffalo
  5. The Mr Men Collection
  6. We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
  7. To Kill a Mockingbird

I chose books 1 to 6 as these are my children's favourite books, the ones that I love to read to them. These books have helped to create an interest in reading for my daughters and capture their imagination. Book 7 was the first book that hit home with me, this was a project at my Secondary School and I loved it. Doesn't matter what you read or what you like as long as you take the time to sit down with a book for yourself or to share with loved ones.

Doesn't matter what you read or what you like as long as you take the time to sit down with a book for yourself or to share with loved ones.
  1. Pride and Prejudice – because I'm an old fashioned romantic
  2. Jane Eyre – because I think it's a more honest version of love than Pride and Prejudice
  3. Lady Chatterley's Lover – did my English coursework on it and loved it, I think it's deeper than just smut which is what people think
  4. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix – there's a conversation between Harry and Nearly Headless Nick that I think is just writing at its best
  5. The Lord of the Rings series (in particular, The Two Towers) – I was obsessed with these books from a young age, I still am, I love the idea that you can escape to this alternate universe where the simple good things defeat the bad, it's very wholesome and Tolkien was very very clever
  6. Sense and Sensibility – it was the first Jane Austen book I read and I loved it. Sentimental reasons
  7. North and South – because it's impossible not to be in love with the male protagonist

Can you name your seven favourite books of all time?
  1. The Perks of Being a Wallflower – Stephen Chbosky (I read it for the first time when I was on holiday and thought it was a lovely book about friends and people)
  2. The Five People You Meet in Heaven – Mitch Albom (this book guides you through a man's life and helps you find your meaning)
  3. To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee (was one of the first classics that I ever read outside of school and began a love for a new genre)
  4. The Bell Jar – Sylvia Plath (I read it at a poignant time in my life and the book has just stuck with me)
  5. The Martian – Andy Weir (this is just, hands down, the cleverest fiction book ever written)
  6. The Time Traveler's Wife – Audrey Niffenegger (beautifully written and one of the few books to ever make me cry)
  7. Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins (the best book in The Hunger Games series, but the whole series itself is incredible. Love the way it deals with politics and war in a way that I, as a kid, would have understood and enjoyed).
