National Book Month

October is National Book Month so it’s the perfect time to share some classic must reads.

While it’s not 1984 and this isn’t a strict and stringent list of The Best of Everything, we hope you find a book on this list that you enjoy.

This list contains no Pride and Prejudice and no Great Expectations for you to read every book on the list until you say And Then There Were None. These are just some Beloved books from throughout the years, where you can learn life lessons like The Perks of Being a Wallflower, but hopefully not how To Kill a Mockingbird.

We know it’s hard sometimes to find an hour in your day to read and you wish there could be A Wrinkle in Time, but this list is not Wild so hopefully you’ll feel Better Than Before once you’ve read some of these books!
