Well there are so many books that I love but if I had to choose several that should be "required reading" for anyone tbis would be my list:
-Anne Frank: The Diary of A Young Girl by Anne Frank
-The Little Prince-Antoine St. Euxpery
-Les Miserables- Victor Hugo
-A Tree Grows In Brooklyn- Betty Smith
-Joy in the Morning- Betty Smith
-A Room of One's Own- Virginia Woolf
-Mrs. Dalloway-Virginia Woolf
-Wuthering Heights- Emily Bronte
-Love in the Time of the Cholera-Gabriel Garcia Marquez
-Crime and Punishment -Fyodor Dostoyoevsky
-Song of Soloman- Toni Morrison
-Beloved- Toni Morrison
These aren't necessarily my "favorite" books but for one reason or another they affected me greatly

A book I love so, so much is "A Girl's Guide to Hunting and Fishing" by Melissa Bank.

It's fiction, and has nothing to do with hunting and fishing. I just think it's really good.
