I love to read Shakespeare's books and watch his plays. He's a genius for sure. You can always find his works all around the Internet, on websites like this one with facts about william shakespeare where authors gathered all the basic and advanced information about his life, and a lot of cool quotes from his works.

I've always loved Sue Townsend for her Adrian Mole series.

I've enjoyed Ernest Cline's Ready Player One immensely; perhaps partially due to the myriad 80s pop culture references.

Thinking whether to pick up on James S.A. Corey for his The Expanse series; absolutely love the TV series.

This is a very predictable answer but one of my favourite writers is J.R.R. Tolkien. The Lord of the Rings is one of my favourite book series and was ahead of its time. His less mainstream works are very good too. I particularly like what he did with the tale of Beren and Luthien (aka Arwen's ancestors) - a beautiful piece of classical fantasy with incredible literary flair. If I remember correctly, Tolkien likened himself and his wife to the couple.

Puddin' by Julie Murphy

It is a companion novel to Dumplin', which follows supporting characters from the first book in the months after Willowdean's star turn in the Clover City pageant.

Millie Michalchuk has gone to fat camp every year since she was a girl. Not this year. This year she has new plans to chase her secret dream—and to kiss her crush. Callie Reyes is the pretty girl who is next in line for dance team captain and has the popular boyfriend. But when it comes to other girls, she’s more frenemy than friend. When circumstances bring the girls together over the course of a semester, they will surprise everyone (especially themselves) by realizing they might have more in common than they ever imagined.
