Books I Wish I’d Written

I’m off today, so instead of a full post, here is a list of some of my favorite books. Whenever someone asks me what my favorite books are, my mind goes blank and all I can think of is Flowers in The Attic (which was my favorite book in 7th grade). So here’s the beginning of a master list, which is not inclusive. I know I’m missing a ton of favorites, so feel free to comment and tell me what I’ve left out.

Happy Friday!
