Day 13: Yourself With 13 Things

Today's photo challenge had me surrounded with 13 of my favorite books. Some are educational, some are thought provoking, some are funny and lighthearted but they are all my favorites in one way or another. And I'm just realizing that the majority of them have really strong settings that are as important as the characters. I'm also realizing that the majority of them are by female authors. Huh. How 'bout that.

Anywho, here's a rundown...
1. A Thousand Splendid Suns--Khaled Hosseini
2. The Kite Runner--Khaled Hosseini
3. The Bonesetter's Daughter--Amy Tan
4. Wild Swans--Jung Chang
5. Beloved--Toni Morrison
6. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle--Barbara Kingsolver
7. Gap Creek--Robert Morgan
8. The Outsiders--S.E. Hinton
9. Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood--Rebecca Wells
10. Cold Sassy Tree--Olive Ann Burns
11. Standing in the Rainbow--Fannie Flagg
12. A Girl Named Zippy--Haven Kimmel
...and book number 13...the good ol' Riverside Shakespeare. (I'm sittin' on it.)
