Like the best of friends, there are books you meet in your life that you instantly connect with. Here are my top 8 favorite books. I’d love to hear yours!
The Second Sex by Simone De Beauvoir: I read it for a gender studies class in college and it rocked my world.
Charlotte’s Web by E.B. White. Because it not only taught me about friendship but it also sparked my life-long affair with books.
A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway: “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” – Ernest Hemingway. Replace man with woman, and yes, I completely agree.
On the Road by Jack Kerouac: Kerouac gets my mind racing with the possibility of adventure.
The Babysitter’s Club by Ann M. Martin. The series in its entirety dominated my adolescence.
Lolita by Vladmir Nabokov. Because does better writing exist?
I really wanted to make this a clean “top 10 favorite books” post, but I honestly haven’t read any other books that rank with these 8 other favorites. Sure, there are other books I loved like this and this, but I think my top 2 spots are still reserved for books I haven’t read yet. I can’t wait to meet them one day soon.
