IELTS CUE CARD # Type of books you enjoy


Give your opinions on books. 

You should say:

  • What type of books do you enjoy
  • What is your favourite book
  • Why is it your favourite book

and explain how you feel about your favourite book.


Sample Answer:

I am a great lover of books, movies, novels, plays and poems alike. Thus, it is no wonder that I absolutely adore any and all forms of fiction. In fact, my favourite past time is joining various authors on their beautifully illustrated ventures or travels.

Some of my childhood favourites are Enid Blyton, Ruskin Bond, Rick Riordan, Suzanne Collins and of course, J.K.Rowling.

Likewise, my favourite book is Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. The reasoning behind my choice is that this book, in particular, stood out to me. It stands at a point where childhood innocence starts to develop into something a bit darker. The transition is beautiful to witness. Most if not all of the most prominent characters have been introduced, and none, have thus far died. 

This seemingly innocuous and largely unassuming story teaches all who flick through its pages, that adults are hypocrites, the authorities don’t always deserve the power they wield so freely, and hope isn’t as elusive as it appears.

But far more importantly, this book series really has the best world-building I have ever seen for any fictitious universe. The Magical Governments of different countries are introduced, how they function and clash. Fantastic creatures, mythical beasts come to life, working in tandem to test the skills of the champions. It truly is a magical journey to witness, one that I would recommend everyone partakes in.

I have read many a novel before and after, but I feel, none can come close to the vibrant imagination of J.K.Rowling. I concede that she might not have the best writing style out there, but her originality rings true.
