Book Girl: A Journey through the Treasures and Transforming Power of a Reading Life
Whether you yearn to become an avid reader, struggle to find the time to read, or were once a reader and want to reignite that fire, Sarah Clarkson’s Book Girl is for you. A Book Girl since birth, Clarkson’s compiled a list of her favorite books for each of life’s challenges and phases. “My goal in sharing the following lists is to simply open the reading life a little wider to you, set you on your feet, and launch you on your own journey of exploration,” she writes. Each chapter is filled with meaningful book suggestions and details about how they impacted her life. “The Beloved Dozen: The Novels That Taught Me How to Live” and “Girlhood Classics: The Books That Began It All for Me” were two fun chapters that inspired me to add new titles to my reading list and re-read old favorites. Clarkson’s suggestions are great and her commentary is fun. I enjoyed this book a lot more than I expected to and intend to refer back to it frequently when I need something new and refreshing to explore.
