1. Harry Potter (entire series)
    I actually continuously cycle through listening to the audiobooks as well, so there really hasn't been a time when I haven't been in the middle of one in years.
  2. Most of Susan Elizabeth Phillips' books
    I know this isn't a particularly high-brow choice but I go back to her Chicago stars series again and again. It's like comfort food.
  3. Gone with the Wind
    Another possibly questionable option (for many reasons) but I read this book every summer for years. Ditto the sequel, Scarlett, because I'm a sucker for a happy ending (see above).
  4. The Pink Carnation books by Lauren Willig
    Intrigue, spies, happy endings - count me in, repeatedly.
  5. The Diviners by Libba Bray
    This book S C A R E S me so bad but I still love it.
  6. The Time in Between by Maria Duenas
    Have only read this twice but it's worth a mention because it is remarkable. (There's a tv series on Netflix based on it that's good as well.)
  7. Nancy Drew Books
    There are a few lying around here that I'll pick up now and again. It's interesting to read them as an adult, vs as a child.
  8. The View from Saturday by E.L. Konigsburg
    Another one I kept from my childhood and still occasionally read. I also read another of her book's the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler, multiple times.
  9. I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
    A lot of this book is told through two strangers communicating by text and it's weird and wonderful and I've read it several times. I used to be really into this sort of book, except with emails, and this feels like the same sort of thing. Reading books like this makes me think about how complicated it can be to communicate now, with social media and snap chat and whatever else everyone is using that I haven't heard about yet. I like how this book makes it seem so simple.
  10. Pride and Prejudice
    I know everyone loves this book, but it's worth mentioning
