June Journal Challenge Day 5 by journaling-junkie: List Some of Your Favorite Books

I kept thinking of different books I like and it ended up becoming more of a list of books (and a few plays) I heavily enjoyed reading, rather than just my favorites. I did, however, manage to narrow down my top 5:

1. “Of Mice and Men” by John Steinbeck
2. “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton
3. “Fahrenheit 451” by Ray Bradbury
4. “The Giver” by Lois Lowry
5. “Fried Green Tomatoes” by Fannie Flagg
