Recommending Books From My Most-Read Genres | Favorite YA and Adult Fiction

I read MANY different types of books. I’ve never been one to limit myself to a single genre, and I often find myself bouncing back and forth between several different favorites. Today, I decided to share some of my favorite books across the genre spectrum, because I’m sure that’s what you 100% definitely want to read right now.

5 Shocking Short Stories That Will Send Shivers Up Your Spine

Unpopular opinion: I LOVE analyzing books in English class. Hear me out!
