Paper Towns by John Green

Side Note from Felina Silver Robinson: I haven’t had the pleasure of reading this book yet, but one of my fifteen year old twin daughters enjoyed this book, but was a little disappointed with the ending. Despite its ending she still found the book to be intriguing enough that she didn’t want to put the book down and stayed up late at night reading it. She now states that she “has” to see the movie.  I hope you enjoy it as much as she did!

War and Peace by Leo Tolstoy

Side Note from Felina Silver Robinson: I often wish that I could have rubbed shoulders with the likes of some of our late and great intellects such as Leo Tolstoy. This man truly had a way with words. His innate ability to bring life to every part of his stories with such simplicity leaves writers such as myself in awe of him. War and Peace is an outstanding story written from within the mind of the great Tolstoy. You won’t want to miss it if you haven’t already had the pleasure of reading it already.

Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë

Side Note from Felina Silver Robinson: This story touches many places for me. Grateful not to have lived in a time where slavery could be a part of my life, but still feeling for those who suffered through it. Wuthering Heights is a tragic love affair. But also the story of children raised at a time where they should have been more selfless instead they were selfish. I dare wonder if any of those alive then would behave the same today. Suffice it say it would most likely be true. Parents bare some of the responsibility for the actions of their offspring as they did in deed raise them up. Regardless of the premise I will always hold the story of Wuthering Heights close to my heart. I feel all adolescents should read this book before exiting high school to help them realize the good fortune they have and how far we have come.
