Little Women
Although most of Little Women's fans are female (due to the title I'm sure), I have known several young men to also enjoy it, so don't rule it out for them. Also, be sure to check out the author's other …

Trixie Belden
I read & loved these books even into my college years because their charm lies in their relatable and fun characters rather than their plots, which really are not bad for the genre.

The Lord of the Rings (novel)
Skeptical of fantasy, I read these books before I saw the movies, and they set my high standard that hasn't been met since. Accept the slow-going beginning for the light-hearted adventure it is, and before …

Gone with the Wind (Book)

Breaking Dawn
Poorly written, (the end of the book is very anti-climactic for the book as a stand-alone), but full of emotional surprises that make it fun to read and impossible to put down. Pure cotton candy.

The most delightful thing about this book is the way it is written. At every page, the author surprises you by saying things you would have never thought of.

Who Moved My Cheese? An Amazing Way to Deal with Change in Your Work and in Your Life
