So, without further ado(and in no particular order),
My Favorite Stand-Alone Books
Snow Treasure by Marie McSwigan
A historical fiction story set during WWII about a group of kids who smuggle gold on their sleds. I really liked it.
The Tale of Desperaux by Kate DiCamillo
If you like fantasy and sweet, random stories-- read this!
The Golden Goblet by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Another historical fiction, sorry!
I'd love to read the edition Tolkien translated someday. But regardless of which edition, this book is terribly awesome.
Mara, Daughter of the Nile by Eloise Jarvis McGraw
Eloise Jarvis McGraw combines action, romance, and history well. This has been a favorite for almost 7 years, now. Read it!
The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom
One of my favorite books. I almost cried at the end, and I never cry during books, so that's a good indication. :)
The Cat of Bubastes by G. A. Henty
Mom read this to me in 2nd grade, then I picked it up again in 6th grade. It drags in some parts, and yes, it is historical fiction again, but it's well worth the read.
