A to Z: Books

One of my favorite humans tagged me in a Facebook thing (I don't know what to call it, so I'm just calling it a thing) about books.

Despite my obvious lack of reading this year (I've only read 5 books--it's a tragedy really), I do love all things related to books so I thought I'd share what was posted on Facebook:

The rules: List 10 books you've read that have been influential to your life, have moved you, or stayed with you in some way.

My list in no particular order includes:

1. To Kill a Mocking Bird

2. Jane Eyre-Jane Eyre is my spirit animal

3. Perks of Being a Wallflower

4. She’s Come Undone

5. The Weirdness-any book that starts with the main character having an existential breakdown over a banana is a win for me.

6.Ella Minnow Pea-the ultimate book for any word nerd

7. This is Your Brain on Music

8. Shantaram-when you can’t get a book out of your head, good or bad, you know they author has done his or her job

9. Naked Lunch

10. American Psycho-odd choice, I know, but there is something about the character of Patrick Bateman that has stuck with me since the first time I read this book.
