What can I say? Reading the incredible Harry Potter books and watching the phenomenal films has brought me so much happiness and so many fond memories.
I first read To Kill a Mockingbird when I was 14, and I can’t think of another book that had stuck with me so much.
This one was a given. Even if you don’t love Shakespeare’s plays (which I do), you can’t deny the massive effect that his work has had on everything from literature to popular culture.
Seuss’s books are an iconic part of childhood. I don’t know I single person who never read a Seuss book growing up. And how can I not be thankful for the man who brought us How the Grinch Stole Christmas?
I was in middle school when The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was first published, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Brashares tells this story of friendship, love, and death with extraordinary grace.
In my dramatic literature class in high school, we had a great deal of fun reading, studying, performing, and interpreting Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. To this day it’s still my favorite play.
When I was a little girl I absolutely adored being read Beatrix Potter books. Benjamin Bunny, Peter Rabbit, Tom Kitten, I loved them all!
How can I not be thankful to the man who created Winnie the Pooh? When I was a kid, I loved everything Pooh. The books, the movies, the television series, the toys…I even wore Winnie the Pooh overalls for my fourth grade school picture.
Of all the books my parents and I read and reread when I was kid, Arnold Lobel’s books were possibly my favorites. He’s best known for the delightful Frog and Toad series, but Mouse Soup was always my favorite!
Okay, this one is a bit unorthodox. I’m not really a huge Twilight fan. But without Meyer’s Twilight books, there would be no Twilight movies, and these films have been the source of much silliness and many memories for me. When Twilight came out on DVD back in 2009, my roommate Jessica and I got up ridiculously early one morning to make pancakes and watch the movie for the first time. Since then, we’ve gone to every premiere. The crowds, the enthusiasm, it’s just fun!
