Alphabetical, based mostly on my Goodreads
  1. 1984 by George Orwell
  2. A Coal Miner's Bride by Susan Campbell Bartoletti
    I've read a lot of Dear America books multiple times, but this is generally my favorite. When I was young, it was the story. Now that I'm older, it's also because my ancestors fled Poland around the same time for around the same reasons.
  3. The Book of Mormon
    CanNOT recommend it highly enough.
  4. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
    My all-time favorite. I've read this maybe a dozen times.
  5. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
    Maybe one of the best books I was ever required to read in public school.
  6. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
    Fitzgerald is one of my very favorite writers. For someone who lived such a loud life, his writing is so quiet and bright.
  7. I Am America (And So Can You!) by Stephen Colbert
    My first audiobook. Beginning of a beautiful habit.
  8. Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
    Never thought I would love a book with nun burlesque as much as I do.
  9. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine
    She writes the best fairy tales!
