10 Day You Challenge: 4 Books

Everyone who knows me knows that I LOVE to read. I don't get as much time to read as I used to, but I have read some pretty great books. I tried not to think too hard about what books to choose - I just chose the ones that popped into my head. :) There are just way too many amazing ones to pick my top four!

one 
Harry Potter by J.P. Rowling
 Her ability to put together words onto paper in such a way that you are so visually transported into another world is just amazing! I have read the Harry Potter books more times than I can count. This was an easy answer to my favorite book(s). 

two
 Bel Canto by Ann Patchett 
An awesome book about a hostage situation. Pachett's inspiration was the Lima Crisis. It was amazing to see the situation from the perspective of which is it is beautifully written. If you haven't read this, do it!
three
 The Awakening by Kate Chopin
 She was a forward thinking writer for the time. Classic literature at its best. I also was in a Brain Bowl in high school where I answered a question about this book correctly for the win!
four
 Anything Sophie Kinsella. 
 Love the fun of escaping into her books. I wanna read her books under her other pen name: Madeline Wickham.
Honorable mentions: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Lovely Bones, Twilight (yeah I know, guilty pleasure), and lots of other books. 
Remember here when I said I had some big exciting news? Tune back here tomorrow to find out what it is!! 

ALSO...Tiffany and I are so excited to be doing this challenge with everyone and have enjoyed better getting to know everyone and finding great new bloggers and friends! So we wanted to ask for your feedback in this survey. It is a quick 3 questions. Thanks!
