BLESS YOU @ChrisK! This is my first list request.
  1. High Fidelity - Nick Hornby
    Because LISTS, and endless talk of music.
  2. Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell
    Because love really is a mix tape and chubby people fall in love too.
  3. Jane Eyre - Charlotte Brontë
    I want to be loved and valued for my soul, goodness, and intelligence, like Jane.
  4. Princess Bride - William Goldman
    Hilarious banter, sword play, revenge, true love, and the man in black!
  5. Anne of Green Gables - L.M. Montgomery
    Oh give me the vast green hills and the crashing waves against Prince Edward Island.
  6. The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
    I can imagine myself walking in slow motion into a white, silk tent surrounded by countless dazzling lights, and making so much uninterrupted eye contact with a man.
  7. Freckles - Gene Stratton-Porter
    The limberlost can only be described as a place of worship. With the offering of loyalty, courage is found, with a return of free and full love.
  8. Bossypants - Tina Fey
    This likely means Tina Fey hired me as a writer, comedian, and/or musician, of which I'm all three.
  9. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Roald Dahl
    No explanation necessary.
