Thank you

Will you return my book? ( I use this form. )
Will you return my book to me? ( "Will you return my book" is my preferred )
Will you give me back my book? (I consider incorrect, seperates verb - object)
Will you give me my book back? ( I use, but less common. can omit "back")
Will you give back my book to me? (I use, but less common. complicated form)
Will you give my book back to me? (I use, but less common. complicated form)
I hope this helps you.
