One thing that Claudia picked up from Educated  is that "it's okay to unlearn some things that you thought were good before. It's okay to be wrong about something." (TBH, we couldn't agree more!) In Outliers, her biggest takeaway was that you are in control of what you make of yourself and as for Beartown, it made her realize that there are always two sides to every story.

Out of the five books, she said that Norwegian Wood  is her favorite because it's "the most heartbreaking" and that "it hits too close to home." She admires how the author describes ~feelings~ and Julia even showed us that Claudia highlighted some of her favorite parts in the story!
