But honestly, I'm most obsessed with YA Lit with my absolute favorites being the Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling as well as the Hunger Games Trilogy by Suzanne Collins."

"Although I haven't been able to find it on book shelves lately, Little Bear Lost by Jane Hissey is still my favorite children's book. Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd  is my favorite book for adults."

"I loved reading Peter Pan by J.M Barrie to my boys when they were younger, so I'd say that's my favorite children's book. As far as books for adults go, I'd say my favorite is The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien."

Matthew Silverman, Media Advisor

"My favorite story book is Charlotte's Web by  E.B. White. As for my favorite book for adults, I'll have to go with The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
