Your Recommended Reading List


I was blown away by all your wonderful book recommendations last week and I thought it might be nice to compile some of the popular favorites for everyone’s reference. I’m still deciding which twelve to tackle…it’s so hard to choose! Last night I curled up with The Alchemist — what a beautiful, quick read with so much simple wisdom. I admired its lessons of gratefulness and living in the present — a welcome reminder. Without further ado, a handful of your favorite reads:

    Madeline – Hadn’t even heard of the Bernadette book until all of my readers raved about it! So excited to order a copy. Keep me posted on what you think of Lena’s book! I’m really enjoying it, she’s hysterical.

    I have read most of these already and they are all fabulous. I HIGHLY recommend The Art of Fielding, The Goldfinch, and Where’d You Go Bernadette?.

    I am so excited about this list! I read constantly and there were a number of suggestions on this list that I hadn’t discovered. I just downloaded four and I can’t wait to begin. This made my Monday!
