My 5 All-time Favorite Reads

I grew up doing those little library summer reading programs where you get little prizes for reading “x” amount of books, when the summer ended I continued reading for rewards during the school year with the infamous Pizza Hut Personal pizza reading program. But now, at the ripe old age of 22, I read because it’s actually fun. So I guess bribing kids to read with pizza, and cheap toys really does fuel a lifetime love of literature.

I’m going to be real with you, my reading preferences are pretty superficial. I enjoy classic YA novels, murder mysteries, and dystopian societies. To each his own, ya know? So let’s get this list started with some

#5 Harry Potter Series  (HP & The Prisoner of Azkaban if I HAD to choose)
