Question: Keeping with the Spirit of Giving this season, what book do you think EVERYONE should read and if you could, you would buy it for all of your family and friends?

So being new to the book reading world, I haven’t been exposed to all of the amazing classic books that literally lovers spoon over to the end of time.  Of the books that I have read, I feel that the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling,The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin and Before I Fall  by Lauren Oliver are just a few books that I think everyone should have read.  And yes I would buy everyone a copy of these books!

Harry Potter changed the world in so many ways and changed the lives of so many young readers everyone should be able to be whisked away to Hogwarts! I don't think I need to say to much about these books, they are amazing, hands down, just read the books already!!!!!!!

An amazing debut author is Michelle Hodkin and her book The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.  This book BLEW ME AWAY!!!!!! This book takes you on a journey of discovery, mystery, and love.  She keeps you guessing the whole time and its such an enjoyable read, I think everyone should pick up a copy!

And lastly Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver.  Although the main character of this book is hard to relate to, the concept of the book really makes you think about your own life and what would you do if given 7 chances to change your life? Oliver really touches on a raw emotion of saying good-bye to the ones you love and writes a beautiful novel.  The debut novel from Oliver, Before I fall is something I feel everyone should read, not only because its such an enjoyable read, but also to make you ponder your own life and if you died tomorrow, would you need to change anything?

What do you believe everyone should read?


  1. I LOVE Harry Potter of course! And I completely agree with needing to read Before I Fall. I included all Lauren Oliver's book in my FF. Before I Fall definitely makes you think about doing everything you can while you have the chance and making sure to treat everyone well. Such a beautiful book with a great message. I cried like a baby!
