Time flies when you’re reading a good book. These twenty titles are turning the big 1-0 in 2015, and many of them are still as popular now as they were upon their initial publication. Some became literary phenomenon’s, many became films, but all of them have their place in literary history.

Fun Fact: The boy wizard himself will be turning 35 in July. As if we didn't feel old enough.

Fun Fact: It's never too late to enter the world of Haruki Murakami.
 

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Fun Fact: What's another ten years to Edward Cullen? He's turning 114 in 2015, so I doubt he's counting.

I have read Twilight, Marley & Me, The Memory Keepers Daughter & The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Have the Book Thief but not read yet. Loved all of these except Twilight not so much.

I've only read three Harry Potter,twilight and Marley and me, all in paperback, the days before I had a kobo/iPad I remember crying my eyes out through the last couple of chapters of Marley and me, I'm surprised the book survived, the book was so much better than the film.
