Ten Day You Challenge: Books

Oh how I wish this had been day one. I can think of WAY more than four books to talk to you about. Having to limit it to four only makes it harder to decide which four to talk about.

Day Seven: Four Books

1.Book I'm currently reading: Falling Home by Karen White. I read the sequel before I realized it was a sequel and now I have to go back and read the first one, even though I pretty much know what happens at the end. I really enjoyed After the Rain and I'm really enjoying this one as well.

2. Book I've read the most times: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I love this book. When people ask what my favorite book is, I always say this one...largely because it's a classic and I figure that's more impressive than a lot of other answers I could give. Don't worry, that doesn't make it any less true.  Of course for me to choose an actual favorite book would be impossible. I love so many that it would be like asking a parent to choose a favorite child. Actually, if you don't mind a boob selfie, check it out. I'm even wearing my Great Gatsby shirt today. I knew there was a reason I forgot to write this post yesterday!

3. First book I remember loving: Bread and Jam for Frances by Russell Hoban. I remember reading this book with my mom over and over and over again. She would always read with me at bedtime. It's one of my most fond memories of childhood: reading with my mom before going to sleep...and then trying to convince her that I wasn't tired enough to sleep yet and usually being granted extra reading time. *Enter "Stephanie is such a nerd" comments here*

4. My Book: The Girl in the Painting (tentative title) Ok, people. I'm sharing something big with you here. I'm writing a book. Did you know that? And despite the fact that I'm overly critical and terrified that it will never become an actual book, I'm sharing with you today. Because who can have a challenge day regarding books and not share that she is, herself, writing a book? Wish me luck!

Ok, what's one book that's important to you? Or that you simply loved? I'm ALWAYS looking for new book recommendations!
