Little Women


A post shared by Oksana Skora (@oksanaskora) on

Start widening your literary horizons with this timeless story of four sisters growing together while taking their individual paths to womanhood. Then you can reward yourself by watching the recent heartwarming movie adaptation (many cable providers have it available for rent right now!).

To Kill a Mockingbird 


A post shared by Angelika. 🤗 (@yay.books) on have heard all the refrences to this story butour fave TV shows 

You may have heard many references to this story when watching some of your fave TV shows or movies, but if you haven't had the chance to actually pick it up, we highly recommend it. If you were a fan of The Hate You Give by Angie Thomas, this tale of battling prejudice and injustice will definitely strike a chord.

The Giver

The Giver will give you the chance to view the world with a fresh set of eyes, eyes that can't see color. Lois Lowry will teach you the importance of going against the grain of society and the power of the truth all through the point of view of 12-year-old Jonas.

Anne of Green Gables 


A post shared by Anne with an E (@noticiasannewithane) on

You won't be able to resist the charm of Anne, a red-headed orphan looking for a family and a place to call home. This is another "read it before you see it" option, with the Netflix original series Anne with an E streaming now.

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe 


A post shared by Alison In Bookland (@alisoninbookland) on

For all the fantasy lovers, this classic was made for you. The first installment of the Chronicles of Narnia will give you an exciting escape into a world of mythical creatures, evil queens, friendship and sacrifice.
