I do believe that is all of them! And to be honest, I really did enjoy most of those!
Ok now- on to 'today's post'!
What is my favorite book that I've read in/for school?
Hmm... Honestly, the first one that comes to mind is To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee. I read that in my Freshman year of high school, and I totally loved it. That's probably my favorite.. Yeah... I had always thought I had a copy of it, but come to find out, I didn't. :( So, for my last birthday my mom bought me the 50th anniversary addition of it! (Thanks Mom! :) ) I cannot even begin to say how excited I was! 
A second favorite I think may be The Last True Story I'll Ever Tell by John Crawford. I chose that book for one of my summer reading choices for my U.S. history course. Really, that was probably one of the most interesting summer reading books that I have ever read. It was just so unlike the books that I normally read, I have never really read any war books before. But now, The Things They Carried is on my list!
Now, I will leave you with a fun fact! I actually named the kitten that I got last spring, Boo Radley after Arthur Boo Radley in To Kill A Mocking Bird. Just more proof that I love that book!

That right over there is my boy Boo Radley in his first snow storm!

Tomorrows post is going to be a book case tour!! Yay- books!

Have a great night! :)
