I've just purchased a little stack of books to start off my summer. Some have been on my To-Read list for quite a while:

And The Mountains Echoed
Dark Money, by Jane Mayer
The Lovely Bones
Flowers for Algernon (yes, somehow I've never read that last one.)

But first, I'll finish my current read: Carrie Fisher's, Shockaholic.

What should I add to my list? What is the best book you've read in the past year or two? Something that really stuck with you long after "The end"? (Mine is Annabelle by Kathleen Winter.)(less)

Reading this as a middle-aged woman brought back a flood of middle-grade emotions. Miss Blume fully pulled me into the fairly common, relatable life of Margaret. Nostalgic for me, but still relevant for any girls on the brink of puberty.
