I love to read. A good book draws you in, and takes you along for the ride. You don’t want to put it down, but at the same time, you don’t want the story to end. I wrote a post a little while ago about some of my favorite books, but I wanted to expand on it and share even more. Here are some favorites of mine, and I will be adding more as time goes on. Feel free to leave your own suggestions too!

    Have you ever read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami? It's a wonderful read.

  • sameve

    I haven't, I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!

  • Carlee Mallard

    Wow, 2 of those are actually my favorite books too! Everyone Worth Knowing & The Glass Castle are fantastic reads! I have The World According to Mister Rodgers, too, as it was a gift when I moved to Pittsburgh :)

    Maybe this means I should explore some other books on your list.

  • sameve

    You definitely should! I have more books listed on my goodreads profile. I'd love some recommendations from you too :)

    Great list! Might I recommend Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys? I absolutely loved it! I know this list is a bit old, but oh well!
