Day 13: Journaling Through January

What is your favorite book? Write about the lessons you learned from it or how has is shaped who you are.

p.s. Leave a comment with your favorite book. I'd love to check them out!


  1. One of the best books I have ever read was my Freshman year in High school (Goodness, way back in 1998!). I was not at all into reading and we had to pick a book- any book we wanted- to read and write a paper on. While walking the aisles of B&N, there ws one book that stood out to me for it's cover. The binding was hot pink! The title was "Entries From A Hot Pink Notebook". I was sold on those two things alone and bought it thinking it would be uplifting and lighthearted.

    It in fact was the story of a boy in highschool who was harassed and tortured for being gay. At that young age of 14 I was able to take that book and learn how to treat other people, no matter how different they are. It was such a moving book back then!

  2. Oh, there's too many to count...The Notebook (Sparks), anything by Jodi Picoult, The Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games trilogy...oh! The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes...can't remember the author - but oh so good!
    {That's just a few that I could remember right now}
    Oh! And Moloka'i by Alan Brennert

  3. I read so many books, it is impossible to list all my favorites. I recently (as in this morning)finished Delirium by Lauren Oliver and it was fantastic, I can't wait for the second! Scribbler of Dreams is one of my favorites I also love the regulars, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and The Twilight Saga. My favorite book of all time is either To Kill A Mockingbird, The Lord of the Flies, Tale of Two Cities, or The Hunger Games (I know that is 4 favorites, but I can't possibly decide)!

  4. Oh, it's easily To Kill A Mockingbird!
    Many books have impacted and touched me in various ways, but, that particular book came to me at a time when I really needed the lessons that it taught.
    I was in the 10th grade and involved in a situation that I didn't really understand and also didn't understand where to go with what I was feeling. I swear, this story actually pushed me forward and changed the way I handled the situation I was in!


Thank you for coming along for the ride with me. Your comments make my day!
