Every year I choose my five best books, a few favorites out of all the books I read.
It was hard to narrow it down.
Ok, The Willoughbys is a children’s book, but I read A LOT of children’s books so I had choose at least one. I have made all the adults in my family read this though and everyone agrees. Not to be missed.
I read Warriors Don’t Cry after accompanying Mary Polly’s class to Central High.
I almost killed my book club with The Heaven Tree, but this book is worth every single one of it’s 900 pages. Every. single. one.
I absolutely did not want The Help to end. I felt like I was losing dear friends when I closed the cover on the last page. I felt reluctant to return it to its owner.
I feel like the impact of A Million Miles in A Thousand Years is still to come, but even as Taido and I dreamed about the future, as we often do on long car rides, my thoughts were framed by the ideas I have gained from this book about the kind of story I want to write with my life.
I did LOADS of reading in Florida and I am super excited to share some of those! So more books coming soon. It’s winter right? We’re supposed to have more time to read because of less daylight!
