My 8 Favorite Books to Share

I read a lot of books. That shouldn’t be a surprise at this point. I’ve often had people come to me for book recommendations, and, honestly, I love sharing my favorites! If I loan you a physical book, we’re actually good friends. If I loan it to you still with the jacket on it, you’re golden and essentially my favorite person.

Nonfiction Books

Bossypants – I love Tina Fey. She’s just a gem. There’s part of this book where she talks about how cool fanny packs were, and I’m 90% positive I’ve had the exact same conversation/discussion with my sister. I gave it to my mom before she went on a cruise with my dad. Apparently she was reading it by the pool, laughing out loud, and embarrassing my dad.

Scrappy Little Nobody – This one was super relatable for me. I mean, you can read my review. I already told one of my girlfriends that this is the book she’s getting next.

Living Well, Spending Less – This was a really lovely book. The “Living Well” half resonated more with me than the “Spending Less” half. I feel like I’m already pretty financially intelligent. However, there were great points about working to improve your life and vision boards and everything.

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? – I think this was the first non-fiction/memoir type book that I ever read. My sister gave it to me for Christmas one year, and it was another that I was actually laughing out loud for, especially the first few chapters. Mindy Kaling is a winner.

Wild – Both my sister and I tried to get our mother to read this. I think we both read it separately and LOVED it. There was one page (literally one page) where Cheryl is talking about a horse (I won’t ruin anything) and I was actually sobbing. It was just a really good book.

Fiction Books

The Good Girl – One of the first books I’ve ever read where I didn’t see the twist coming! It gripped me immediately, and kept me engaged the entire time. I read it in less than a week.

Gone Girl – This was the first recommended book. Told my sister and my mom both to read it, and they both loved it.

13 Reasons Why – I read this before it was “cool” and before Selena Gomez decided to make it a thing. I was in college, so I was able to read it between classes, rehearsals, and work in about 24 hours.

I feel like the above list is not a good indicator of my reading habits! One of my favorite things to do is get lost in a fictional world. I mean, Harry Potter will always top the list, but, if you didn’t read it already, you probably won’t ever will.
