The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

“I’d never been introduced to that kind of economy of language before I read Salinger. The book and his short story collections were instrumental in me finding my voice as a young writer.”

The Catcher in the Rye follows the young Holden Caulfield as he ditches his prep school for three days and gets to know the underground scene of New York City. This book is a classic and one that many schools still require students to read today.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

“Enough said!”

Harry Potter’s life is forever changed when he’s taken from his aunt and uncle’s home and sent to Hogwarts, a magical school for wizards and witches. It’s here at Hogwarts that Harry meets new friends, goes on terrifying and exciting adventures and finds out who he is and what’s most important to him.

Slouching Towards Bethlehem by Joan Didion

“I love memoir and essay and short stories. I’ve probably read Slouching Towards Bethlehem upwards of 30 times.”

Joan Didion’s famed essay collection Slouching Towards Bethlehem details life in America, and predominantly California, in the 1960s. Focusing on icons like John Wayne, the subcultures in the state and more, this is a must-read for fans of Didion.
