Book List Challenge

You must compile a list of the 10 books that are personal favorites or which have influenced you the most in your life. After each book title and author, please provide a graphic of the book cover and a brief blurb as to why this is a personal favorite or has influenced you.

1. To Kill a Mockingbird  by Harper Lee
This novel is one of my all-time favorite novels due in large part to the narrator, Scout. We are able to learn about her life and see firsthand the powerful affect her father, Atticus Finch, has on her and the town they live in. I remember the first time that I read To Kill a Mockingbird was in 9th grade and the lessons that I learned about the existence of social injustice and the importance of morals were as relevant then as they are now.

2. Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

3. The Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank

4. The Giver by Lois Lowry

5. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein

6. The Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins

7. Wonder by R.J. Palacio

8. Little House on the Prairie Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder

9. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery

10. Night by Elie Wiesel
