A powerful modern classic you'll never forget. Feisty tomboy Scout spends her summers playing outside with her brother, Jem. Their father Atticus is a brilliant man and excellent lawyer who takes it upon himself to prove the innocence of a local black man accused of rape. As the case continues that's one nail-biting courtroom scene , Scout herself begins to learn the heart-shattering ways of the world.
Your own eyes will be opened, your heart broken, and your copy will earn itself pride of place on your bookshelf forever. As fabulous as the BBC adaptation with Colin Firth is, and no matter how romantic the Keira Knightley film version is, the original Jane Austen novel never loses its sparkle. Pride and Prejudice is a story pumped with girl power, sisterhood and ultimately, choosing love for love itself. It tells the story of a family of sisters on the lookout for good, proper marriages to good, proper men, although heroine-of-the-century Lizzie Bennett has other ideas about what'll make her happy.
It'll leave you toasty warm, grinning madly and wanting to be more like Elizabeth Bennett in every way. This is a tragic tale of story of enduring love, bad decisions and star-crossed lovers, perfect for a cold, stormy night. Heathcliff and Cathy have an inseparable bond from childhood, but class, pride and fury keep them apart even as they declare their undying love for one another. It's wild. It's passionate. It's a book that gets under your skin. Waistcoated white rabbits, mad hatter tea parties and manically smiling cats can only mean one thing: the wondrous world of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
If you normally love gripping family dramas or epic love stories, this is a welcome side step into the world of fantasy, offering you something a little different to leaf through on winter nights. You know the drill from the Disney remake and whimsical Alice-themed-cafes everywhere; Alice falls down a rabbit hole and all sorts of adventures ensue: eating cupcakes, navigating locked doors and talking to all kinds of animals. It's a wonderfully memorable story that'll spark your imagination, and is just as magical to read by yourself as it is to share with your little ones at bedtime.

So slow a fading out brings no real pain. Breath growing short Is just uncomfortable. You feel the drain Of energy, but thought and sight remain:. Enhanced, in fact. When did you ever see So much sweet beauty as when fine rain falls On that small tree And saturates your brick back garden walls, So many Amber Rooms and mirror halls?
Ever more lavish as the dusk descends This glistening illuminates the air. It never ends.
Whenever the rain comes it will be there, Beyond my time, but now I take my share. Come autumn and its leaves will turn to flame. What I must do Is live to see that.
