    Nonfiction essays. 10/10. Five stars. All thumbs up. Etc.
  2. Dandelion Wine, Ray Bradbury
    780e1fe6 d40a 4f1b 8606 a7ebba8ab5e9
  3. My Sister the Nightmare, Janet Bloss
    Fb1026f6 0bdf 4a22 94ef 75c86920572c
    Probably out of print. Read over and over again as a kid.
  4. I Know This Much Is True, Wally Lamb
    05ae9720 adc8 4650 8142 16ebac4a2fb9
    I've only cried while reading fiction like three times. This book was the first one to make me cry.
  5. Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
    2e0a5997 4eda 4f8f 81d7 ced683ae2f21
    If you read her enough, she changes the way you think your thoughts.
  6. There Is Room For You, Charlotte Bacon
    5d8e0183 293c 480e a48f 8cb7ba0467ec
    Second time I cried while reading fiction. Charlotte was my professor and is a fearless writer who tackles a multitude of genres. While working at her college library, she stumbled upon some journals of British women who'd lived in colonial India. Years later, she wrote this.
  7. Words Under the Words, Naomi Shihab Nye
    92a7ddd4 c360 4836 a74a fa3acb72ba56
  8. Carnival Evening, Linda Pastan
    Bea30e01 bcf6 4209 a9ab 2117a9ef70e8
    Pastan is the kind of poet/writer who makes you feel like you're writing alongside her as you read.
  9. Contemporary American Poetry, Ed. A Poulin
    2fbe2645 31ca 4c60 9844 9591c24b3958
    Introduced me to contemporary American poetry. True to its word, basically.
  10. Brave New World, Aldous Huxley
    Af448146 951a 4df7 b133 ed5b91c9ecfa
    I think about this book A LOT as pot becomes legalized, state by state.
