A great read

so as most of you know, reading has been my one and only homework for my ever-so-stressful AP English class and I have actually enjoyed reading these books. The last few have been great. Wuthering Heights, The Power and The Glory, and My Antonia. I am currently on the last one and about halfway done and i havent even had it for a week... and if u knew me.... thats super fast!! and when i read fast, thats a clue that its a great read. So if anyone would like a great read, here are some my friends. and because I am a member on Goodreads, i have had great references to me, and i have given great references. i am a big believer of people telling people good books to read. so if any of you bloggers are readers as well, check out goodreads. its a great place for us bookworms to dwell. :) anyways, if anyone would like to request a great read for me as well, i would love one. With no track, and no job (yet), and no hard classes at school its gunna be a long spring!!

I loved Wuthering Heights as well. We are supposed to read some good book in the book club I go to for my ward so I will let you know if I read anything good. Nothing as of right now though....

Here are some of my favorites which are not only great reads, but ones a teen age girl such as yourself could like!

The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom

The Secret Journal of Brett Colton by Kay Lynn Mangum (an LDS teen book... amazing, love it!)

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott (followed by Little Men and Jo's Boys, but LW is the BEST!)

Emma by Jane Austin (you can see the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow... sooo good!)

Fire of the Covenant by Gerald Lund (LDS historical fiction about the handcart pioneers, good and strengthens your faith and appreciation of the pioneers)

The Work and the Glory by Gerald Lund (I never wanted to read them because they were the Mormon trendy thing to read, but I did and they are so AMAZING, it's like you're really there during the restoration of the church.)
