So my friend Julia is amazing. (You may recognize her name from a ton of the coolest Weekly Adventures cataloged on this blog.) She is a fellow former Northwestern English Major and current legal assistant in Chicago. She sent me a wonderfully long list of her favorite books from middle and high school. I was going to edit it down, but I then I decided if these books were important to her, it’s definitely for me to decide which ones should be recommended. But more than 35 books (yep), is a bit much for one blog post, so instead I’ve broken it up into a few posts. Here we go:
Julia’s note: It’s about a cat psychiatrist [he’s a cat, too], and it’s weirdly hilarious.
Julia’s Note: Kickass heroines
Julia’s Note: Also kick ass heroine.
Julia’s Note: Slightly sexier fantasy novels, similarly kick ass heroines
Julia’s Note: Far better than the movie.
Julia’s Note: The length is intimidating, but it’s very readable.
I can’t speak to that, but I can say that Jules is a wonderful person to watch the Jim Cavieziel movie with.
Stay tuned for rest of her list!
As always I would love to read/share your list of favorite reads from your teen years. It doesn’t have to be this exhaustive of a list (though that’s welcome as well!) e-mail your picks to firstname.lastname@example.org
