1. Witch & Wizard - James Patterson
Was told it would be a decent replacement for Harry Potter but not quite. I found some parts to be a bit childish at times. It was a very quick read (about two and half hours) which was nice. The story kept moving and the new "information" was exciting to read. Was a good book, but should not be considered a hp replacement, unless you just need a little fix of magic.
Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
Origin of Species - Charles Darwin
