It's a great book. I always think of her when I take a walk along a foamy sea.
All of the books on my list have stayed with me long after I finished reading them.

Narrowing down my top 10 favorites is quite the challenge, but you can bet that the Bridgerton books https://bookwormera.com/bridgerton-books-bridgerton-books-in-order/ hold a special place in my heart! There's just something enchanting about diving into the Regency-era world filled with romance, drama, and those Bridgerton siblings.

Apart from those delightful reads, I've been captivated by a diverse range of genres and authors. If I were to expand my list, some other favorites of mine include 'To Kill a Mockingbird' by Harper Lee for its profound themes, 'Harry Potter' series by J.K. Rowling for the pure magic it brings, and 'The Catcher in the Rye' by J.D. Salinger for its timeless coming-of-age narrative.

1. The Violent Bear It Away by Flannery O’Connor
2. Collected Ghost Stories by MR James
3. Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell by Susanna Clarke
4. Brighton Rock by Graham Greene
5. The Devils of Loudun by Aldous Huxley

7. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov
8. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest by Ken Kesey

Thanks! Catch 22 is the book that probably made me fall in love with reading <3
