Thank you!
Charlotte's web was the first book I was able to read (not very well but good enough), it has stayed with me all my life. It's my favorite book of all time.

Meet Felicity was the first book I picked up to read on my own at age 6.

The Westing Game was the first book I read about 15X over and over. It was also a school book which made me broaden my perspective on where I found my books.

Pride and Prejudice opened the doors to old books. After that, I started going to the library and finding the dusty old books with no picture cover and finding gems I own and love to this day.

Dana's Valley was the first (and only) book that made me cry and inspire real emotion.

It's cool to see how many books overlapped on everybody's list!

1. The Harry Potter series, OF COURSE
2. Lord of the Rings series
3. Death be not proud
4. The fault in Our Stars
5. Perks of being a wallflower
6. Night- Elie Wiesel
7. The giving Tree (or basically anything else by Shel Silverstein!)
8. Love you forever, my fave
9. Scar Tissue- Anthony Kiedis
10. Where the Wild Things are

I have a soft spot for children's/ young adult books, being a primary teacher and all. They just tell such beautiful stories in simple, memorable, and imaginative ways!

through shadows to the edge of night, until the stars are all alight.”
