My Top Five Favorite Books
Thanks @talor and I'm very sorry this took so long. These are sorta kinda ranked but not totally.
- •The Time Traveler's WifeShoutout to my BFF Sarah for recommending this book, as it was the book that got me out of my "I Hate Reading" phase. Basically I just love the way this book jumps back and forth between time and it's just an amazing story.
- •WildEven though we haven't all gone through a divorce and losing our mother, we all can relate to that feeling of hitting rock bottom, and feeling like we just have nothing left. I just love how unpretentious she is, that she funded the trip herself, and how beautiful her words are. I can't get enough of this book.
- •MandyI read this book when I was younger (maybe 8 or 9) and I couldn't get enough of it. It's still in my basement at my parents' house. I should reread it because I haven't read it since I was a kid, and I'm interested to see how my perspective has changed.
- •The Great GatsbyDuring my junior year of high school I read this for English. I've mentioned this a few times, but I grew up in a very affluent area (basically I'm surrounded by rich people and some people might consider my family rich), so this analysis of rich people and how they take advantage of people was very interesting to me. Also, I had a very good English teacher who really showed us the symbolism without being a jerk about it. I also love the beautiful language.
- •Every Last WordI just read this and I can't stop talking about it! I definitely don't think there are enough books about mental illness, so I'm always thrilled to find one, and this is just amazing. It also inspires me to write more.
