    1. I absolutely loved the Kite Runner! I am actually in the middle of reading “One Thousand Splendid Suns” by the same author. I haven’t read much, but so far I love this one too!

    1. I feel like this year my reading was all over the place in terms of genre, which is probably reflected in this list. I’m really happy that I read so many great books! πŸ™‚


  1. I read Frankenstien this year for a class, and really liked it. And the Princess Bride is brilliant. I really want to reread Gone with the Wind. Anyway, it looks like a superb list. Some of my favourite books this year have been Salt to the Sea, Faking It, The Winners Kiss, The Boy Most Likely To, and a world without you. I really want to read more classics next year.

    1. I haven’t read any of the favorite books that you mentioned, so I’ll definitely have to check them out! If you’re looking to read more classics then I highly recommend any of the ones on this list as well as Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Great Expectations by Charles Dickens, Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain, and 1984 by George Orwell.


    1. I read Animal Farm a while ago while I was in high school and I remember liking it.I feel like I should read it again though because I think there are a lot of things in the book that I didn’t get when I was younger that I would understand better today.

  2. Ooh I’ve only read two of these books — Alexander Hamilton, which was this year, and Animal farm which I think I read at the end of last year? But both of those were absolutely excellent. *nods* (I’m still pretty impressed I made it through Alexander Hamilton. My family laughed at me but NOPE.)

    1. I feel the same way about the Hamilton bio! It’s such a chunky book that I was pretty intimidated at first, but once I got into it I flew through it. Hamilton’s life is like a soap opera! Glad you enjoyed Animal Farm as well πŸ™‚
