Below are lists of books I have “crossed off” my bucket lists. The book bucket lists below are not exhaustive and are continually being updated. While the books encompass an eclectic mix of inspirational, deep, raunchy, and juvenile, they are all books I would recommend. I thought I would share my completed lists in case others want to add some of these to their book bucket lists. I would also love to hear readers’ recommendations.
“If you find a girl who reads, keep her close. When you find her up at 2am clutching a book to her chest and weeping, make her a cup of tea and hold her. You may lose her for a couple of hours but she will always come back to you. She’ll talk as if the characters in the book are real, because for a while, they always are. Date a girl who reads because you deserve it. You deserve a girl who can give you the most colorful life imaginable.” – Rosemarie Urquico
