I've seen some wonderful plays from Lion King to Hamlet. Among the many museums that I've visited, The Bodies Exhibit was my favorite. (I'm also a nurse, so now it makes sense.)
I love watching documentaries on the History Channel. My favorite movies to watch are old black and white ones. There are no car crashes, no towering infernos, just story. It's all about the characters.
Some of my favorite middle grade and young adult books are: The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Patterson, Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier, SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson, Planet Pregnancy by Linda Oatman High and Looking for Alaska by John Greene.
A few of my favorite adult books are Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold, The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout.
Currently, I'm reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins.
