- Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan
- Beauty by Robin McKinley
- Traveling Light by Katrina Kittle
- anything by Mark Doty
The first two are children's books that I've read over and over and over again. The third is a novel that I've read over and over again. (I haven't had it long enough for the third over...) And Mark Doty is a poet and novelist who packs so much meaning into each line of his writing that you have to take your time while you're reading it. That's definitely something that I need sometimes, to have to take my time and enjoy what I'm reading.
