Favorite Books

I don't do much reading, especially over the last couple of years (stupid Netflix!). But when I make it through a whole book, then it's definitely worth noting.

My very favorite books are memoirs. I find other people's stories fascinating, especially when I can relate to them in some way. But I also love novels--particularly the popular young adult series that keep me so interested I just can't stop reading.

And usually, that's how I read a book--if it grabs my interest quickly, then I will read as much as possible until I finish it. But I am a slow reader, and if a book doesn't capture my interest right away, I usually don't finish it.

Anyway, here is a list of my favorite books I've read. You can also find me on Goodreads, but I am terrible at keeping that updated. I've included links to Amazon (affiliate links) and to Goodreads.

I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
