Making up For Monday: Most Recommended

It's time for Making Up For Monday!

This week's question:
What books would you recommend most?

Today is my birthday, so I decided to pick a topic that let me talk about my favorite books (rather than think about the fact that my 20's are officially behind me).

There are a few books that I find myself recommending all the time (and am slightly disappointed when I discover that someone took me up on the recommendation and didn't like it). 

1. Silver Linings Playbook by Matthew Quick:  If you are a regular reader of this blog, mentioning this book does not surprise you.  I read this over a year ago and I STILL love it.  Its one of those books that struck me to my core.

2. The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon: College really killed my reading ability. When 99.9% of the reading you do is a textbook, reading for fun really doesn't seem, well, fun. This book revived my passion for reading that had been dormant for YEARS.

3. To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee: Hands down my favorite book EVER! I met a book store owner who told me that if I loved the book so much, I could try buying as many different copies as I could find and collect them.  I have been obsessed with the idea ever since.

  1. Since this is my first chance to read blogs this week, I'm kind of Making Up For Friday! But I find myself recommending the book Ready Player One a lot these days, especially to children of the 80s.
