“You think she’s an open book, but you don’t know which page to turn to.”

So, I have a list of books that I want to read and I plan on chugging through them on my newly revived reading kick. However, I don’t know where a lot of the books on my list came from or who recommended them or what they are about. So, I am asking you, dear friends, to tell me if you have read any of these books, if they are worth reading, and add any other great reads to my list. It would be much appreciated!
