Parent: A book that hugs you when you need it.
The Summer of Chasing Mermaids by Sarah Ockler
When it comes to needing a hug from a book, I always choose contemporary romance books such as The Summer of Chasing Mermaids. Romance books have a strange way of cheering me up when I’m feeling a bit down.
Parent: A book that gave you morals and rules to live by.
I resonated with this book on many levels. It sends a good message about being proud to be a feminist. On top of that it gave me some insights into feminism that I was unaware of.
Younger sibling: A book that’s so cute its’ annoying!
Yay for fluffy contemporary novels! Laura Jean definitely got on my nerves with her naiveté at times, but it’s such a cute story about love, growing up, and staying true to yourself.
Older sibling: The book nothing else lives up to.
The Great Gatsby by F.Scott Fitzgerald
When it comes to classics, The Great Gatsby is the cream of the crop for me. It’s probably my top favorite classic that I read in school. Not only do I enjoy the characters, but I love the 1920s setting.
Grandparent: The old fav with wisdom and a certain smell.
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
This book is for sure in my faves for British literature classics. It not only packed full of life lessons, but is full of philosophical meaning.
Aunt: The book you can read when you need to feel your emotions.
Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
When it comes to feeling my emotions in books, I almost always turn to literary fiction. Their Eyes Were Watching God is one of them. It’s such an amazing book and the themes intertwine with the novel’s characters so well.
Uncle: The book that makes you laugh.
Rat Queens Vol.1: Sass and Sorcery by Kurtis J. Wiebe, Roc Upchurch
Though serious at certain points of the story, for the most part the dialogue has me laughing out loud in Rat Queens! It’s such an awesome book about four humorous, sassy, brash heroines, and they kick butt!
Your child: The book that changed your life forever.
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
I’ve talked about this book many times on the blog. I credit Americanah for being the book to change my reading habits as it made me realize I was not expanding my reading tastes as much as I could. It prompted me to seek out more diverse and different narratives so that I can learn more about the world.
