awwww books are my oldest, best friends :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I hate online soft copies… LOVE smelling that old-book smell in the library! I’ve spent hours in Crossword and Landmark, mall stores which allow you to sit and read inside without buying the books :smile:

CLASSICS: my favorite genre is always slice-of-life with classics.

My favorite classic will always be the Anne Series(L M Montgomery). Gilbert Blythe will forever hold his place as my first love :heart_eyes: Such a beautiful, well-written, funny, heartwarming series with so many memorable quotes. This is my favorite in the series (I’m a sucker for rom-coms, as you all know very well :joy:)

Other classics:
Pollyanna by Eleanor H Porter. Didn’t really like the sequel, everything went crazy once she grew up :grimacing: Really couldn’t ship her with Jimmy Bean, it was so weird!

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott how could I ever forget.

Five Little Peppers by Margaret Sidney (a little similar to Little Women, but lots of fun on its own too)

Modern literature: I dig into almost anything with romance in it. I used to love dystopian fiction.

  1. The Hunger Games WHAT A TRILOGY :heart_eyes::star_struck:

  2. Divergent another really great trilogy. Loved both the movies and the books even though they ended differently. Obviously loved the movie ending more, but the book will always be the book. Tobias Eaton is one great hottie :sweat_smile:

  3. Then there’s this mafia crime-romance I LOVED - the Blood for Blood trilogy by Catherine Doyle. My best friend and I would read them over and over again and again. We still use quotes from the book with each other. Ask us and we both can spout out the notes they write each other in a FLASH. Of course, it gave us mafia fantasies but uh… lets skip over THAT :joy: Had the best ending ever.

  4. This is the only book I accept Physics and sci-fi lectures in. It was fun and dumbed down for idiots like me so I had a good time. All about dimensions and worlds blah blah blah. Especially loved the Russian historical dimension where she’s an ancient Russian princess :heart_eyes:
    The Firebird Trilogy by Claudia Gray

Remembered this quote from Winnie the Pooh because the ML quotes it quite a lot in Jugglers :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Winnie the Pooh is honestly so profound. I know the book’s been adapted and sequels and spin-offs and animations have been made… but the actual book is so beautifully thoughtful. Winnie the Pooh may be a Bear of Very Little Brain, but he’s wise where it counts and that’s what I love. The book is divided into very short chapters, making for an easy read. I’d recommend it to anyone. Simple, funny, short, and very sweet. It’s been written by a man who fought in both World Wars.
