Let’s Read

For the first time in the history of ever, I have actually prepped some blog posts. 




I don’t have photos for this post, because, well I don’t think that books are the most photogenic.  And since I get most of my books from the library, I don’t have many of these anymore.  I’ve compiled my list of favorite books I’ve ever read… and why: 

1.  The Catcher in the Rye – J.D. Salinger.  Hands down my favorite book that I’ve ever read.  In school or out.  I do own this one and I love picking it up from time to time.  Holden Caufield may just be one of my favorite characters of all time.  I may just want to name one of my future children Holden, however, please don’t let them grow up to be like that. 

2.  His Bright Light:  The Story of Nick Traina – Danielle Steele.  This book is about her eldest son Nick.  I’ve read it so much the book is falling apart.  I love it, and I cry every single time I read it.  Even as I know what’s going on.  It is a true testament to mental illness and how it can destroy lives and families, but also promotes awareness. 

3.  Gone Girl – Gillian Flynn.  I waited for a very long time to get this book from the library.  Once I did, I could not put it down.  It is gripping and I just love how you really don’t know what is going to happen.  If you have lots of free time, I suggest reading this as soon as you possibly can.  It is that good. 

4.  Harry Potter – J.K. Rowling.  Yes, I am an HP fan.  I’ve read every book multiple times and still continue to enjoy them.  I know I’m not the first, or the only one, but I love them. 

5.  To Kill a Mockingbird – Harper Lee.  Other than #1, this may have been my favorite book that I read in school. I read it in junior high and high school.  Love it, I also may, or may not name a child Scout.  Ok, maybe not as likely as Holden, but it could happen. 

6.  Any and all books by Jodi Picoult.  She is my favorite author of all time and I really don’t think I can pick one of them as my favorite.  They are all so thought provoking and they’ve always drawn me in.  And yes, I’ve read them all. 

7.  The Happiness Project – Gretchen Rubin.  This book is a really good life and self-help style book.  I want to purchase it and really go through it again and highlight things.  I tried while I had it checked out from the library to put some of it into my daily life, but I just didn’t have the time.  I’d love to purchase it thought and try again. 

I hope these give you some good suggestions when you need a book to read.  I didn’t want to give anything away on a few, but trust me, they are all worth checking out from the library, or purchasing if that’s your style.  Get to reading.
