i have to say that my favorite book has always been the bell jar by sylvia plath. i read it once in college for a book report and fell in love. i recently saw the movie, Sylvia with gwyneth paltrow. so. good. anyway, i loved the struggle she had with happiness and never giving up on her husband though she knew he was long gone. it was devastating how she ended her life. those poor kids.
if i'm being honest, i'm kinda obsessed with 50 shades of grey. holy. crap. it has revived something in me. guilty pleasure.
