Books, Books and More Books #blogtober14

As an avid reader, I use Goodreads to track what I've read and whether or not I liked the book or not.  I have bookshelves dedicated to books I have read, want to read and one shelf just for books I couldn't get through.  Life of Pi, kill me know.

I wouldn't say I have a specific type of book that I typically fall into, but since creating a book club with some girlfriends I'm definitely learning more about and reading books from all different genres.  We've read memoirs, classics, historic fiction and best sellers.  I've even blogged about some of the books we've read (here, here and here) and enjoyed if you're looking for a couple suggestions! 

Picking just one book for today's #blogtober14 prompt is just hard.  I have more than 20 books that I have given a five star review of...  So I'm bucking the rules and listing more than one!  Rebel without a cause, right here.

In no specific order here are just a few of my faves:
Marley and Me: Life and Love With The World's Worst Dog.  I was a mess of tears finishing this one!
Orphan Train
Tuck Everlasting
Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption. Wow.  Just wow.
The Hunger Games Trilogy
Still Alice
The Help
Water For Elephants
Harry Potter, #1-7.  It's true, I'm a Potterhead!
To Kill A Mockingbird
Half Broke Horses
The Forgotten Garden

What are some of your favorite books?  Do we have any cross-overs?

Linking up with Helene and Taylor.


  1. I love so many of these books!! Orphan Train is on my list of books to read. I was just reading water for elephants on my kindle from the library and my time ran out and they took it off my kindle, I am going to have to get it back and finish it.

  2. I love the Harry Potter series and I've half way through the Hunger Games and love them so far :D

  3. I loved The Help too, and I have The Orphan Train on my list next!

  4. So many good options- I haven't read quite a few of these so I will definitely check them out!
