On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

  • This is by far one of my favorite memoirs, and writing craft books. I first found the book on a whim at the library. I loved it so much, I knew I needed my own copy. This book is staying on my bookshelf forever.

One Hundred Years of Solitude

  • This was a hard book to read and digest in high school, but it was definitely magical.

The Outsiders

  • I love this book. I read it when I was younger. Then, I re-read it, and fell in love with it. The movie adaptation (1983) is also quite good.

  1. Anything from Mr. King, Sir King, is my favorite. He is the Elvis of the literary world.

  2. I want to read “On Writing” so much!!! I ❤ Stephen King in ways I can't even begin to describe.

    "Of Mice & Men" is a tough read. It's not the prose, so much, as the story, IMO.

    I'd like to re-read "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest" one day, but I think my TBR list is already daunting enough to add re-reads. LOL

  3. I’ve read The Outsiders countless times and love it too!
