The Hobbit (part 1 and 2)

The Hobbit - J.R.R. Tolkien What can I say about this book that hasn't already been said?

I absolutely loved it. Bilbo was just such an amazing character and I loved following his adventures.

I'd put off this book for almost a year and I really wish I hadn't. I think it is a glorious story and it will be a classic that stands the ultimate test of time.

I think my favourite scene from this book was Bilbo's encounter with Gollum. It was so intriguing with all the riddling.

I love the world building. The different kinds of creatures. Trolls, goblins, elves, wargs, giant eagles and not to forget Smaug. Also I feel that hobbits are the most adorable and creative little race of Tolkien's imagination.

Reading this has really sparked my interest/motivation to finally delve into the Lord of the Rings series. Halfway through this book I stopped and ordered the Return of the King and the Two Towers since I only own Fellowship of the Ring. I may not get around to it this year but I am very excited to read more about Hobbits and extent of Tolkien's creativity.
