a song will come on the radio,
and my face can't help breaking into a huge grin
for no other reason than pure happiness.

it's not really the song. 

the song just helps me find

the sequestered nooks, 
and all the sweet serenity of books."

some of my favorites:

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusack <-- life-changing. 

Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling <-- obvious, but begging to be included.


The Road, by Cormac McCarthy <-- read it in a cold room. 

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows <-- the perfect blend.

Paranormalcy, by Kiersten White <-- pink tasers. and I totally have a signed copy.

A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini <-- read straight through. 

The Goose Girl, by Shannon Hale <-- simply lovely.

Birdwing, by Rafe Martin <-- taught me to look at things in different ways.

Anna and the French Kiss, by Stephanie Perkins <-- light-hearted, and left me longing to go to paris. 

Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke <-- gave me a deeper appreciation of language.
