I admit it: I am a book nerd. I love to read. There is nothing quite like the smell of a brand new book. Except maybe the smell of a really old book! I haunt used book stores, and I love hanging out at Barnes and Noble. I am always reading new stuff, and rereading the stories that I loved. Here, I’d like to share my most precious books. Maybe you’ll find something you love, too!
- The Harry Potter Series – I started reading this series when I was 10. I cannot express how sad I was when my 11th birthday rolled around, and I didn’t get my letter inviting me to attend Hogwarts. This series changed my whole life. I have read all the books so many times, I went to the midnight book releases, and I am excited to share these books with my daughter. Although, I have to admit, I really hate the movies. Hahaha
- To Kill a Mockingbird – I know I was meant to read this in school, but I was never required to. So, about a year ago, I read it for the first time. This story is so amazing, and I totally understand why it’s included in “The Classics.”
- The Hunger Games Series – I love Katniss. And I love Peeta. I have a serious crush on Peeta, and I was so sad when they messed with his character. I think I’ve read this series like four times, and I even like the movies. Jennifer Lawrence is so genuine, and I love that she is dedicated to setting a positive example for young girls.
- The Giver – This is another book that usually gets read in school, but I didn’t read. I found it in a book store, and I loved the idea. Dystopian books are always so interesting, and I really enjoyed the next books in the series (Gathering Blue, The Messenger).
I have so many books and stories that I’ve fallen in love with, but that list would take forever. So I’m settling for listing my top picks. I hope you read one, and I really hope you love it as much as I did!
