I love reading, but it’s hard to find a good, clean book with nothing that sticks to your conscience after reading it. The books I list below are clean, they have good morals and virtues, are parent approved, and have no inappropriate things in them. I’ve read all of books listed below, and have really enjoyed them! And most of these books are classics and are hard to put down! I will be adding to this list, so keep checking in!
