My books that have stayed with me list:

♥ also Harry Potter by JK Rowling. It's not the books I've enjoyed the most but it's the fandom that had me the most passionate and invested for a long time.
A Song of Ice and Fire by G.R.R. Martin.
♥ Most of Amélie Nothomb's books (the earliest ones especially).
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.
Angelica by Arthur Phillips.
Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë.
Before I Die by Jenny Downham.
Perfume (The Story of a Murderer) by Patrick Süskind.
The Flowers of Evil by Charles Baudelaire.
The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery.
Atonement by Ian McEwan.
Hello Sadness by Françoise Sagan.
The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera.
Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda (the original French title would translate by Together and that's all, what an intriguing translation).
The Portrait of Dorian Grey by Oscar Wilde.

I cheated grossly because I needed fifteen instead of ten XD I guess I could narrow it down, but I don't want to…

T'is okay, there are so many classics I haven't read, too! ;) Literary culture is a constant work in progress!

Baudelaire ♥ Little bastard is my favorite poet. And I still haven't finished the Portrait of Dorian Grey, though a friend gifted it to me two years ago. I know I'll like it though XD

And I hadn't even noticed there were 15 books in that list (well, more actually because you cheated even more by listing series XD)

He's my favourite, too ♥ (Aragon is close behind…)

Hee! :D You likely will! It's an awesome book.

Hahaha, I'm too honest for my own good then ;) (Good point about the series! ;P I couldn't choose one book for each if I tried!)
