My Favorite Reads

I know that most of the people who read my blog are either here for the fashion stuff or the medical stuff. But I started onceuponaneste on the notion that, while those things are very important to me, being a book nerd is just as important if not even more important at times.

This is just a list of books that I actually have read time and time again, as an intellectual, as a fashionista, and as a book nerd who risked it all to major in English Literature knowing full well that she was to be a doctor.

Let’s start with my favorite of all time (the rest will be in alphabetical order). Dr. Franklin’s Island is a sci-fi young adult novel that I crown the book that got me into reading and loving literature oh so many moons ago. The author is Ann Halam.

A Monster Calls – Patrick Ness
A Street Car Named Desire…yes the play
Catching Fire – Suzanne Collins
Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff – Richard Carlson
Eat, Move, Sleep – Tom Rath
Frankenstein – Mary Shelley
Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix – J. K. Rowling
Home – Toni Morrison
Me Talk Pretty One Day – David Sedaris
Native Son – Richard Wright
Oroonoko – Aphra Behn
Spud – John van de Ruit
The Defining Decade – Meg Jay
The Fault In Our Stars – John Green
The Pearl – John Steinbeck (my favorite author)
The Souls of Black Folk – W. E. B. DuBois
The Street – Ann Petry
The Warmth of Other Suns – Isabel Wilkerson
Their Eyes Were Watching God – Zora Neale Hurston
Things Fall Apart – Chinua Achebe
Week Not, Child – Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o
Wide Sargasso Sea – Jean Rhys

I hope you can find some inspiration and maybe have your eyes opened to stories that you didn’t know existed. Everyone needs a reading break, every now and then.

Keep reading lovelies. XX!

    I am not proud to say I’ve only read one book on that list! I see a few I will be adding to my library.

  2. […] What’s your favorite book? I have no idea if I’m supposed to name a medical school related book or just one that I love in general. For school, I love love love pathoma and for leisure reading…I have too many to choose from. Check out a list here. […]
