The Glass Castle is a memoir recalling Jeannette Walls' transient youth and her bohemian parents. Together her family traipsed across the Southwest, settling temporarily in desert towns and mountain campsites. But when the money ran out and the romance of the wandering life faded, the family settled into a sedentary life in West Virginia, which was soon darkened by alcoholism and dysfunction. Walls eventually left this life, but she looks back on it with honesty and compassion.

To Kill A Mockingbird
Worth Reading, Book Worth, Atticus Finch, Kill, Favorite Book, Classic, Mockingbird, High Schools, Harpers Lee
To Kill a Mocking Bird by Harper Lee (Chapter Book) I never read this book in high school, and I regret it. To Kill a Mockingbird is probably the most widely read book dealing with race in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch, the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism
To Kill A Mockingbird: Favorite Book In High School
To Kill a Mockingbird #books worth reading
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee - Time is the true test for something to be considered a classic. Somehow I missed reading this in high school and college. If ever there was a "modern" classic, this is it. Don't miss reading this one!
City of Thieves. Would read this one again and again.

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon is HANDS DOWN my favorite book series! She is an amazing writer and totally worth the read! Not to mention she is a very nice person. She graciously allowed us to name one of our Tea blends after Lord John Grey (Old WIlmington Tea Company)!
Outlander, Diana Gabaldon loved it--fun to read! Time travel, historical, romance.
Adventure. Romance. Time Travel. Unputdownable! The Outlander Series | Diana Gabaldon
The Outlander Series is one of my favorites. Also worth reading: the Lord John Grey series, a spinoff based around a "minor" (if any of Gabaldon's characters could be said to be minor) character in the Outlander series.

Staggeringly beautiful, deep, rich, sad, frightening, and at times infuriating. I appreciate Hosseini's portrayal of a part of the world that is under so much scrutiny lately. He uses this novel to tell the story of Afghani women and the hardships that face them with each regime change. Read this book. You won't regret it.
even better than the kite runner.
