There are so many books to be thankful for, but here are some of my favorites.
1. The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen - This is one of the first Sarah Dessen novels that I read that really resonated with me. It sparked my love for contemporary young adult literature.
2. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - Thank you Ms. Austen for creating Mr. Darcy. Am I right?
3. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery - Anne was probably the first female protagonist that really spoke to me as a child. I still love Anne to this day.
4. New and Selected Poems by Mary Oliver - I am not an avid reader of poetry, but I do love Mary Oliver.
5. The Summer I Turned Pretty by Jenny Han - I adore this entire series. This series just gets me.
6. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - This is one of the few classics that really stuck out for me when I read it in school.
7. A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens - This story will never get old for me. I read it in middle school and then taught it for many years to my middle school students.
8. Outlander by Diana Gabaldon - This book reminded me that adult sci-fi/romance can be just as powerful as a contemporary novel, if not more. Plus, Jamie Fraser. Need I say more?
9. Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell - I gotta love me some Scarlett O'Hara.
10. The White Queen by Philippa Gregory - This novel reminded me that adult historical fiction can be fun, captivating, and more interesting than I thought. It definitely reignited my love for historical fiction.
