A Few of My Favorite Reads: From A to Z

by Stacey

Over the weekend, I brainstormed writing ideas and this one came to me. I can’t believe I never had this thought before. With the exception of a few letters (you can probably guess the culprits!), titles came to mind pretty easily and it was super fun to remember so many awesome reads. Of course, if I created this same like tomorrow, my list would probably be different but for now…

…here goes! My Favorite Reads from A to Z:

    Love the list – I have read many of these and numerous are my favorites with one exception which will not surprise you. I did not like Eat, Pray and Love!

    I love this! How did you manage? Oy I’d have to down load GoodReads and start sorting in Excel!

      For a few letters, I did have to Google “books that begin with…”. But give it a try- it was actually way easier than I thought it would be!
