1. White Oleander -- One I've had as a favorite for many years but have never re-read.
2. Perks of Being a Wallflower -- Another favorite. One I think everyone should read. I think I should re-read to write a review.
3. Thirteen Little Blue Envelopes -- I need to re-read so I can read the sequel.
4. The Scarlet Letter -- I rushed through this during High School, but remember there was something to be learned from it. I have to re-read to refresh this.
5. Ella Enchanted -- The movie wasn't anything like I remembered the book being. I need to re-read this to see if I'm missing a story in my reading history or the movie left a lot out.
6. Sloppy Firsts -- I need to reacquaint myself with Mr. Flutie and Jessica Darling so that I can finish the series.
7. Black Beauty -- This was one of my first chapter books as a kid. I remember loving it so much I read it over and over in First Grade. But... that's about all I remember. I need to remind myself why I was enamoured.
8. Candide -- One of my favorite classics. It was witty, funny, and TRAGIC. (I think that's a great combination for a classic.) BUT, it was quick, ultra quick, and the details have all slipped away.
9. Crank -- For a while I was on a verse-novel kick and I want to know if I liked this because it was as moving as I remember or it was just part of my youthful obsession with sad poetry and verse.
10. Twilight -- I don't care what anyone says. This series is wonderful because it is full of love and a wonderful escape which I read whenever I need a break. The details of writing quality or the obsessive nature of the love is breaking down the pieces of something that is only wonderful as a whole. Twilight series is just like a caramel frappuccino: it isn't exactly good for you, it is an indulgence, a delicious treat, and everyone needs that every once and a while.
