2. The Great Brain series by John Dennis FitzgeraldRealistic family relationships. Set in Utah. Funny & clever. I also cried sometimes. Read this for nostalgia of childhood summertimes.
3. P&P, Emma, Persuasion by Jane Austen
I’m not a Jane-ite. But Emma, I think I have decided (at least for right now, at this very moment), is my favorite.
4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
I read this classic my freshman year of high school. I remember being a little creeped out but also endearingly intrigued by all the mystical stuff going on. Also, angsty teenage me connected with Jane.
5. The Harry Potter Series by the one and only J.K.
In two words?
My childhood. 🙂 I remember being so excited during the summer for the next book to come out. *sigh*
6. Second Class Citizen by Buchi Emecheta
When I was living in London, I read this book. Beautifully written and beautiful main character. Must. Read. I *cannot* stress this enough.
7. The Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Yet again, another childhood classic.
8. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I also read Little Women my sophomore year of high school.
Or, at least, I finished the unabridged version. I remember reading a shortened version when I was in elementary school. When I was in fourth grade, I was Jo for Halloween. I’d like to pretend that I still am.
9. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein

10. Agatha Christie novels
I am, by no means, a prolific reader of Agatha. But it’s been fun reading some murder mysteries this summer. I really enjoyed the ABC Murders. How could you not love Poirot (whose name I think I can *finally* pronounce correctly)?
Currently, I am reading Murder at the Vicarage, and it’s so hilarious, sometimes I literally LOL. 🙂
Well, that’s all folks. I hope you enjoyed looking at some of my favorite books! 🙂
Have a beautiful day!!! <3
