I read How to Breathe Underwater, a collection of short stories by Julie Orringer. The six stories are really powerful and I re-read them a lot. I love the old books by Enid Blyton: Mallory Towers, The Secret Seven, The Famous Five, The Adventurous Four, and a series about a farm. They're hard to find, but fun to read. Kind of typical, and old and British, but so fun.
