a few favorite reads

  I set a goal for myself to read at least sixty books this year. So far I've read thirty-two books, and I decided to pick out five of my favorites and share them with you. Of course, it turned out near to impossible to pick out just five...so here are my eight favorite books from the year so far:

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley
Emma by Jane Austen
The Frog Princess by E.D.Baker
The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom
The Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux
Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

 Each and every one of these books blew me away, and I definitely recommend them :)


  1. I love To Kill a Mockingbird and Emma.
    Way to go!

  2. To Kill a Mockingbird is actually on my summer reading list. :)
    Have you read North and South (Elizabeth Gaskell)? It's a romance, but very well-written.

  3. Huzzah for awesome books! I'll have to look into some of these ... I've only read two of them! (The Hiding Place and Emma)

    P.S. Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! :)

  4. the first 3 are also on my list.
