After you read through the following list I hope it will give you a springboard to think of your own fiction titles and you own categories that you will share with a friend. There are so many ways to find books but I still find my best recommendations are “word of mouth.”
Brave Irene by William Steig is my favorite children’s book.
My favorite teen book is Holes by Louis Sacher.
Fortunes Rocks by Anita Shreve and A Boy’s Life by Robert McCammon are two of my favorite adult works of fiction.
It’s hard to believe that The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and The Help by Kathryn Stockett are debut novels.
Keeping Watch by Laurie R. King is my favorite war-related book.
A quirky book that is worth reading is The Girl I Used To Be by David Christofano.
The best book dealing with all sides of Teenage Pregnancy is Girls in Trouble by Caroline Leavit.
An author that I believe deserves a larger readership is Kaye Gibbons.
A strong work of historical fiction that was overlooked by readers is The Blood of Flowers by Anita Amirrezvavi.
Two books that had my undivided attention from the first page are – American, America by Ethan Canin and The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
The book I’ve been recommending lately is The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard.
