Kendall McKinnon, a 9th-grader at Washington, is possibly the biggest bookworm a person will ever meet. She was named top reader in her fifth-grade year and has carried the love of books with her her entire life.

“I’ve read at least 30 books since the beginning of 2016,” she said.

McKinnon knows just what’s worth reading and what isn’t. So, here is her top ten book recommendations that are definitely worth a look.

  1. “I’ll Give You The Sun” by Jandy Nelson
  2. “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee
  3. “The Joy Luck Club” by Amy Tan
  4. “The Lost Symbol” by Dan Brown
  5. “Harry Potter” by J.K. Rowling
  6. “The Mortal Instruments” by Cassandra Clare
  7. “The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank
  8. “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton
  9. “A Wrinkle in Time” by Madeleine L’ Engle
  10. “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak

Although most of these books are fiction or historical fictions, McKinnon’s favorite book genre is mystery.

“I like mystery because I love making guesses and being right in the end,” McKinnon said .

While she loves to read, McKinnon can not re-read a book.

“Even though I hate re-reading books, I wouldn’t mind reading ‘The Mortal Instruments’ again,” she said.

“The worst movie adaptation has to be the ‘Hunger Games’,” she said. “The best would probably be any of the Harry Potter series.”

Check one of these great books over the weekend or during Thanksgiving break.
